The Gentle Strength of Meekness

By admin On February 12, 2012 Under Spiritual

Gentle strength is another trait that brings healing to our lives and the lives of others.  In Matthew 5, we read “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” Meekness means to be humbly patient or docile, even when provoked. Webster defines meekness as “showing patience and humility, gentle, easily imposed upon and submissive”.

A Quality Not In Vogue

Qualities like being submissive, easily imposed upon, and gentle when provoked, cross the heart of our society today. We don’t aspire to such action. Fair or like treatment is more like our response: “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth” at best, and “many eyes for an eye, many teeth for a tooth” at worst.

Gentle Strength

True strength, however, is meekness. Meekness is not the same as weakness. The measure of a person’s power has nothing to do with it. Meekness is an attitude of response to others, not a social status.

Like Water

Chinese philosopher, Lao Tsu said:

“Water is the most prevalent, soft, and yielding substance in the world, yet it wears down the hard and strong. None can overcome it though anyone can conquer it.  That which is yielding conquers the strong and the soft overcomes that which is hard.  Everybody knows this, yet no one dares to live by it.”

Water is the most powerful symbol of meekness or gentle strength.

Recently, water has been studied extensively as we have realized that there is more to water than meets the eye.  What we have discovered is mind bending and I believe stands out in metaphors for meekness.  Above all, it is symbolic of our meek God, whose meekness is only one attribute of His love.

What can we learn about meekness, grace, and God from the discoveries about water below?

No other substance acts like water*:

  • Water’s density increased below the freezing point and increases above it.
  • Instead of contracting when it is cooled, water expands.
  • Water is the only substance on the planet that can exist in three states: liquid, solid, and gas.
  • Water has the highest surface tension of all liquids.
  • Water is the most powerful solvent on earth.
  • How, in defiance of the earth’s gravity, is water able to rise through the trunks of gigantic trees against 10s of atmospheres of pressure?
  • When trapped, water is capable of generating enormous pressure.  In a seed, for example, it reached 400 atmospheres at the moment of germination.  That is why a plant shoot can break through rock or asphalt with ease.
  • Every living thing is dependent on water for its very structure and function.  Every seed, every embrio, begins its life exclusively in water.
  • Water has memory.  Though it is such a small, simple molecule, the structures it forms when clustered together are complex and form as kind of magnetic tape that remembers everything, both physical and energetic, that it has come into contact with.  Water changes for good or bad depending on its experience.  It is the most maliable computer every discovered.
  • The universe is connected by huge streams of information.  In our world, water plays the key role in how that information is exchanged.  In effect, it is the medium through which all nature is governed.
  • Human emotions have the most powerful effect on water.  Positive emotions increase the energy of water and stablize it, while negative emotions reduce its energy and make radically harmful changes in it.  Consider this in light of the fact that we are mostly water.
  • Emoto Masaru has demonstrated how emotions afffect water with his profound experiments on water.  He has played music to, spoken words to, and even taped words written on paper to different containers of water.  He cryogenically freezes the water and the crystal structure of the water for different positive and negative imputs are stunning, beautiful crystals for Mozart, “thank you”, and “I love you” (pictured above); ugly smudges for heavy metal music, “you disgust me” (pictured right), and hate.
  • Water in nature flows in meandering channels, but water in a city’s water system experiences many harsh right angle turns.  This breaks down the natural stucture of the water. It becomes devitalized and “rotten”, sucking energy out of the people and plants that consume it.

In Harmony With Water

Jesus said, “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”  The earth is mostly water and those who inherit the earth must know how to live in harmony with water.  Becoming meek is a big part of that and I think Jesus had water in mind when He said those words.

Water is gently strong.  Each of us has been given an element from the water of primeval ocean.  Our every word is like a water drop, a medium of thought, and a source of information.  We either resonate with The Primeval Water and become vessels of life or we pollute our own well and contaminate our place on earth with death.

Water is Like It’s Master

Jesus resonated with water and held it at his command.  He walked on it, calmed its fury, and washed our feet with it.  He yields to serve the weakest in His creation because He is meek like water.  He cares for each like His own life.  The Lord of the Cosmos is who He is because He is meek.  He is strong because He is a servant.  He is a servant king.

We Have Fallen Far

Lao Tzu said, “Everybody knows this (what water is like), yet no one dares to live by it.”  Because of our self-centered, fallen nature, we don’t have what it takes to be meek. We challenge others and explode when they dare to dispute our position. We demand just recompense for all those who violate us. We have fallen far from meekness.

The Only Way to Meekness

Only a dynamic connection with the Lord of Meekness can give us this gentle strength.  Only by resonating with The Primeval Water can we become vessels of life and meekness to others in our world.  Only by allowing Him to immerse us and cleanse us with water can we come to Him.  Now this Water Lord holds this fluid out to us, saying, “Come, and wash in the water of life without cost.  Return to the health and heritage that only comes through meekness”.

“Let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.”
– Revelation 22:17
