Visual Inspiration: Muddy Water, Let Stand, Becomes Clear

Valerie Rickel

“Muddy water, let stand, becomes clear.”
–Lao Tzu

I loved creating today’s Visual Inspiration for you. This is one of my most favorite quotes. It was shared with me by a dear friend, Father Paul Keenan, who used to write a column for SoulfulLiving.com, but who passed away five years ago. I remember telling Father Paul about a dream I had about “water” and “inner peace” and he emailed me this quote. I’ll never forget that. Such a beautiful soul. I miss him so much!

I took this photo in the Adirondack Mountains early last autumn, one evening at twilight. I was living in a cabin not far from this body of water. The emotions that wash over me, as I gaze at this photo today, connect me so clearly to that moment. It triggers feelings of deep peace, silence, calmness, and tranquility. Blissful!

I hope you enjoy the Visual Inspiration as much as I enjoyed creating it!  ♥
