"Although at first I'm an irritant within the very core of a being, I emerge as a pristine image of beauty and transcendence. Isn't it so in your life? Once the cause of grave pain, a problem can give birth to new persepctive or more refined self if you know that you can choose to reach acceptance and compassion by choice. How do you choose to live: with intensity, commitment and love? If so, then wear me as a symbol of self-awareness, for I'm an infusion of Divine connection through water, and I symbolize emotional growth and readiness."
