Water, its that life vital liquid which all living creatures need for survival. What do you think is the relation/link between water and spirituality. We know that , when in its pure form, properties of water are that its: colorless (transparent ), odourless, tasteless, has 0 calories.
Yet, its essential for all forms of life and all living things need it. Considering the properties of water, i think they make it impartial. Part of spirituality is being impartial, so does this link water and spirituality?
(( and His throne was settled over water ))
(( and We have made out of water every living thing ))
The complete passage from Dr. Wayne Dyers book "Change Your Thoughts—Change Your Life" Was inspirational to me. I found the whole concept very awakening

Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.
God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.
God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning--the first day.
The water is also a reflective surface when at rest. there is the outer water and the inner water(soul,mind and heart in the light of the spirit). Why do you wash the outside of the cup? Why do you not wash the inside? you need that reflective surface to know your self. now you know how it relates in spirituality.
jesus also told the same thing i have told you.
I have take what is from him to make it know to you.
For she is(sophia soul) the reflection of eternal light,
the spotless mirror of the power of God,
the image of his goodness.
Now it is for you to meditate,be aware(keep watch) make thine eyes(the eyes are the window of the house) be single,focus,concentrate and find your own water and make your water calm and clean and find the light in the water(reflection) that light is you.that light is waiting for you to solve your own inner division. so the 2 can become one(water and spirit).
Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”
there is light in a person of light and it shines on the whole world if not it is dark.
so let there be light,Be the light that you can be,experience and enjoy.
Here is an explanation from a mystical Christian perspective (and a unique individual):

Good question ... i like the phrase by white tiger "there is outer water and inner water", that i interpret as meaning there is an outer world, the visible, and an inner world, the invisible, there is physical water as we know it, and its' counterpart, a sort of magnetically charged fluid, magnetic meaning containing information, a reserve of spiritually charged energy. Water is one of the four essential elements that make up our material world, the others being air, earth and fire and each have their corresponding counterpart in the immaterial world. This links in with the aum in our physical world, the passage of lighter air vibrations to the heavier lower vibrations of water, of which our bodies contain a large %, which acts as a medium for the transmission of energy, and its' spiritual content ... it is in a meditative state that we can expand our consciousness to reach this infinite source of energy, this fits in nicely with the mantric word om or aum, and with the iam pronounced by bashar.
We always have access to both water and spirituality. They are there for us to enjoy and benefit from. They nurture and nourish us and it is our choice how much we choose to immerse ourselves in them.The more we focus on them, the healthier and happier we are - we need both!
