30 Days of Liberation: Day 12 – Be Like Water

The Seder features 2 (some say 3) washings. Why is water such a prevalent feature here, as it also is in the Exodus story? Water “goes with the flow.” It doesn’t try to avoid, prevent, or destroy its obstacles. It effortlessly goes around, over, or through obstructions that arise in its path. Many of us are enslaved by anxiety, doubt, fear, and aggression. We suffer by wanting to control the uncontrollable. Water teaches that life’s challenges can instead more often be overcome through persistence, resilience, and the ability to let go.
