After breakfast yesterday, we walked to the Cold Spring that runs behind and to the side of Cold Spring Tavern in Santa Barbara. It continues under the road to the other side where it meets up with another running creek.
We stood for a few minutes listening to the rushing waters on both sides of the street. It was heading to the Santa Ynez River watershed. It was a stereophonic lovely musical experience.
It reminded us of Wayne Dyer who once mentioned in a lecture. that every morning while living in Maui, he would drive out to a favorite waterfall in order to meditate. Sitting under the constant shower of water, his mind would magically get quiet.
"Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong."
