A mountain spring bubbles from the ground and begins to flow. I love to sit by it and listen to its murmur. I watch it flow, I even talk to it and then I think of God who is the true spring, the source of all life.
I remember that in human beings – created in his image – there is also a spring, buried deep inside them, waiting to bubble up and flow when the conditions are right.
A spring always remains pure, it remains alive because it never ceases to flow not even for a second. Even if someone wants to dirty it by throwing in their rubbish it continues to flow. And in very little time that rubbish is all washed away.
Take this spring as your model. Try to become like it; in other words, love. Love everything, love in spite of everything. If you allow love to flow freely from you it will protect you from all impurity and suffering. You will not even notice that people have tried to dirty and harm you. Your inner spring will reject every negative thing and it will heal and restore you. It will resuscitate you.
Around a flowing spring there are plants, trees, birds and human beings. And what happens when the spring dries up? They all disappear. So never allow your spring to dry up. Keep this image of a flowing spring within you, night and day- a spring that rejects all impurity. Never stop loving and you will be freed from all suffering.
That’s all. Become a spring and you will find beauty, purity, intelligence and protection.
