In vino veritas, in aqua sanitas. It’s a famous Latin saying which carries the meaning, in wine, there’s truth, in water, there’s health. I find it rather befitting in many events on of my life, considering that sometimes, when people had alcohol… they tend to blurt truth… though I see that as the disgusting by-product of alcohol.
I hate people who chooses alcohol when they’re depressed, because I am not the kind who prefer to indulge in the substance that’s known by science to be a depressant. I’d hate to be known as an alcoholic. I have no problems with people who take them occasionally to celebrate certain things or for a nightcap, though.
Many may not know this, but alcohols are actually depressant, though some may confuse it with an anti-depressant as it tends to lower one’s inhabitation when taken, and one feels that they could actually do anything after having some alcohol in their system…some people blurt out terrible truth after taking alcohol… while some, do weird, unmentionable things. In vino veritas indeed, for perhaps…wine or alcoholic drinks brings out the ‘you’ that you’re trying to suppress unconsciously.
In aqua sanitas…in water, there’s health. I have always believe in that, considering that our beloved Earth is 80% covered by water and our bodies are made of 80% fluids…. if I actually get my biology facts right.
Anyway… I’m straying… as I said, in aqua sanitas… I have always believed that water have a magical power to somewhat ‘heal’ one’s soul… it’s soothing, calming and comforting…and instead of just lowering your inhabitation like wine and many other alcoholic products, it freezes time, and free me from my worries.
You see… when I’m worried… when I’m depressed, when I’m lost… I would often take a very long hot shower…or go for a swim, and I’d feel that I’m closer to Him, because of the comfort it gives me.
When I am surrounded by wind… and water altogether… I couldn’t help but think… God, how mighty You are…You actually gave us health by surrounding us with air and water. You kept us alive by surrounding us with air and water. It’s abundant, but nobody seems to care enough about them to give thanks for the blessing, because despite of it’s importance…nobody would missed it until it’s gone.
One could live without many things around them…but could one live without water and air? Would one be healthy without air to fill their lungs and water to sustain their bodily fluids? The answer is no…Â you wouldn’t even be breathing without air… nor will you stand on your two feet without your body being properly hydrated to sustain your biological system…and yet, I don’t see many people giving thanks for that, and therefore… today, Lord, I want to thank You for surrounding me with health… for keeping me alive… for allowing me to still breathe with precious air, and keeping my body function well with the water you provide…and thank you, for still keeping me alive and let me see how blessed I am to still be alive and surrounded by people who showed me kindness, people who cares for me, and loves me dearly.
Cleffairy: We are so small… so human…so…imperfect…so ungrateful… that we did not realized that when certain things are taken away from us…we are nothing. We are nothing without His ‘gifts’ for us.
