THE WAYS OF WATER (I posted this yesterday in another forum)

Peace to all the human families! Today's mathematics is power. This morning, I reflected upon the power degree in the 1:40, and within that, specifically, "How much is water?...139,685,000 square miles of water." Adding the numbers up borns POWER! We, as Black women are symbolic to wisdom, and one of the things wisdom represents is water, which can be very powerful depending on the force of the current and its' contents. Water can assist growth and development, providing a nurturing presence, it can eliminate toxins like a cleanser, or it can come with such a force that it destroys and clears everything in its' path. It is a primary characteristic of our planet that makes it a life sustainer. As Black women in this culture, part of our power lies in our ability to communicate our knowledge effectively, being a physical manifestation that reflects as the moon and absorbs as the earth and we do this with the fluidity of our wisdom and being glowing examples.

Our wisdom is perhaps the first step in mathematics where you apply what you have learned to yourself first, then others. Different currents may have to be utilized at different times, but like water, the wisdom is what carries the information to the next step. As Earths, we all have to analyze the contents of our water. Is it toxic? Is it clean? Is it spring water or distilled water packaged in a plastic container? Are there creatures lurking beneath that you have never seen or heard of? Is it saline or freshwater? What are the sources of your water? Where does it come from?

What are the emotional undercurrents that underly how you see the world?

One thing that we must remember is that on our planet, there are many forms of water, containing different components and within each of these forms of water are various categories and types. All of this exists on our planet! The following is a list of seven forms of water and some info. about each. So do the knowledge and see where the water takes you...

POND

A pond is typically a man made body of water smaller than a lake. Scientifically, a pond is any man made body of water where light is found in the entire body of water. In origin, pond is a variant form of the word pound, meaning a confining enclosure. A pond is characterized as being a small body of water that is shallow enough for sunlight to reach the bottom, permitting the growth of rooted plants at its deepest point. There are various regional names for naturally occurring ponds.

Pond usually describes small bodies of water, generally smaller than one would require a boat to cross. Another definition is that a pond is a body of water where even its deepest areas are reached by sunlight or where a human can walk across the entire body of water without being submerged. Typically, a pond has no surface outflow draining off water Hence, because of the closed environment of ponds, such small bodies of water normally develop self contained eco-systems. Ponds in heavily vegetated areas also display the formation of "scum", which is a common term for dead and decaying vegetation condensing on top of the water. A contributor to this is the presence of algae, which multiply quickly in a nutrient-rich eutrophic pond exposed to strong daylight. Decaying flora provide significant amounts of such nutrients. www.wikipedia.org

STREAM

A stream, brook, beck, burn or creek, is a body of water with a detectable current, confined within a bed and banks. Stream is also an umbrella term used in the scientific community for all flowing natural waters, regardless of size. There are 14 parts to a stream listed at www.wikipedia.org .

RIVER (which is a type of stream)

A river is a natural waterway that conveys water, derived from either precipitation or glacial meltwater, from higher ground to lower ground. Most commonly rivers flow on the surface but there are many examples of underground rivers where the flow is contained within chambers, caves or caverns. In some areas of highly variable rainfall, some rivers exist that carry water only occasionally and may be dry for several years at a time. Rivers have been used by man since the dawn of civilization as a source of water, for food, for transport as defences, as a source of power to drive machinery and as a means of disposing of waste.

The world's ten longest rivers
It is difficult to measure the length of a river, the more precise the measurement, the longer the river will seem. Also, it is difficult to determine where a river begins or ends, as very often, upstream rivers are formed by seasonal streams, swamps, or changing lakes.

These are average measurements.

Nile (6,690 km)
Amazon (6,452 km)
Mississippi-Missouri (6,270 km)[1]
Yangtze (6,245 km)[2]
Yenisey-Angara (5,550 km)
Huang He (Yellow) (5,464 km)
Ob-Irtysh (5,410 km)
Amur (4,410 km)
Congo (4,380 km)
Lena (4,260 km)

LAKE

A lake is a body of water or other liquid of considerable size contained on a body of land. A vast majority of lakes on Earth are fresh water, and most lie in the Northern Hemisphere at higher latitudes. In ecology the environment of a lake is referred to as lacustrine. Large lakes are occasionally referred to as "inland seas" and small seas are occasionally referred to as lakes. Most lakes have a natural outflow in the form of a river or stream, but some do not, and lose water solely by evaporation and/or underground seepage. They are termed endorheic lakes (see below).The term lake is also used to describe a feature such as Lake Eyre, which is a dry basin most of the time but may become filled under seasonal conditions of heavy rainfall. Many lakes are artificial and are constructed for hydro-electric power supply, recreational purposes, industrial use, agricultural use, or domestic water supply. There are at least 11 types of lakes and some are millions of years old. www.wikipedia.org

BAY

A bay is an area of water bordered by land on three sides. It is a body of water partially enclosed by land but with a wide mouth, affording access to the sea:

SEA

A sea is a large expanse of saline water connected with an ocean, or a large, usually saline, lake that lacks a natural outlet such as the Caspian Sea and the Dead Sea. Check out www.wikipedia.org for a list of seas and the oceans they flow in to (keyword: sea)

OCEAN

Oceans are saline waters (water with dissolved salt content) that cover almost three quarters (71%) of the surface of the Earth. The area of the oceans is 361 million sq. km (about 139million sq mi)., and nearly half of the world's marine waters are over 3,000 meters (9,800 ft) deep. The average salinity of the Earth's oceans is around 35 parts per thousand (ppt), and nearly all seawater falls in the range of 31 to 38 ppt. The vast abyssal plains of the deep ocean cover about 40% of the Earth's surface. Geologically, an ocean is an area of oceanic crust covered by water. Oceanic crust is the thin layer of solidified volcanic basalt that covers the Earth's mantle where there are no continents.

Though somewhat arbitrarily divided into several "separate" oceans, these oceans are in fact one global, interconnected body of salt water, often called the World Ocean. The major divisions are defined in part by the continents and a variety of archipelagos, and are labeled the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, the Indian Ocean, the Southern Ocean, and the Arctic Ocean. There are also some smaller bodies of salt water that are not interconnected with the World Ocean (e.g., the Caspian Sea, the Great Salt Lake). These are not considered to be oceans or parts of oceans, though some of them have been given the name, sea. www.wikipedia.org

    Peace Sister,

    Keep sharing the knowledge. You are a teacher and I always learn something when I read what you've written and listen to you flow. BTW, I checked out yourspace and am feeling your energy. Continue educing and inspiring sister.

    Love, peace, power and respect to you...your sis, ep
