Approximately 70% of the human body is water. Interestingly, 71% of the surface of Earth is covered with water. Water is necessary for life. It was through the water of life, amniotic fluid, that we developed and were ushered into life.
Water is used for ritual in every major religion of the world. Hindus bath in the Ganges River and bless with water. Jews observe the ritual bath of the mikveh. From this Jewish ritual, the Christian baptism serves as entrance to the community of faith. Muslims wash before prayer. Among Buddhists, water is poured at funerals
As Earth experiences shortages of fresh, clean, potable water, water becomes even more sacred for sustaining life. Because of my own commitment to sustainable spirituality and living with reverence for life on our planet, in place of my regular blog this week, I’m sharing with you The Growing Global Water Footprint (http://www.custommade.com/blog/water-footprint/). Please read and share with others.
