This is a common Chinese saying, when commenting how fast the women change their mind, don't trust them as they are emotionally driven. However, I think, not bad for the qualities of a formless adaptive heart-centered way of living. How admirable!
This Chinese saying has a certain truth. Water made up 60% of the human body, men and women. Just to look at myself, the majority of my physical existence - the water - has been recycling for eons. That's literally the Samaric death and rebirth is displaying inside of me in every moment. The water inside of me could have bathed the Buddha's feet, could have been the tear of Mother Mary, the blood of Jesus, the siliva of Je Jsonghapa. Or maybe on the shady side, the brain fluid of Adolf Hitler, the sweat of Genghis Khan. The water inside of my body has been in the sky, in the rain, in the river, in the deep sea... So... the majority of me has a history that is not really "my" history. The majority of me is everything, every gender, every nationality and everywhere. Then who am I?
Every now and then I revisit these thoughts of Water Dakini, and she takes my mind to travel far far away. It helps me to cherish less of my existence, the "Self" is harder to find, my "ID" is becoming hazy. Right now at this very moment, I am having your water, and you are having mine. We are interconnected!
