It is possible for dead ‘stone’ to become living, flowing, ‘water’. But this takes work, not mere wishful thinking. This actual preparation, however, is precisely what is missing from all modern versions of religion. The great pathos of modern religion (including New Age religion) is that it is telling stones to flow into the ocean! “With a truly tragic delusion,” Carl Jung noted, “these theologians fail to see that it is not a matter of proving the existence of the light, but of blind people who do not know that their eyes could see. It is high time we realized that it is pointless to praise the light and preach it if nobody can see it. It is much more needful to teach people the art of seeing.” (This also relates to my previous post quoting Mother Teresa).
