 Having a thirst for seeking treasure, I am always eager to dig deep for answers to the questions I have. In 2009, I had a question.  "If God truly is the creator of the universe, then there had to be proof in His creations, particularly in light of Hebrews 8:5, which declares that God told Moses to make the tabernacle according to the pattern that he was shown on the mountain.  That meant that the pattern had already been esablished in the heavenly realm, and everything available to the senses was a mere reflection of those patterns. Over night,  my treasure hunt had begun.  If I could uncover every natural process and pattern in the physical world, then these would direct me to the path that would uncover the unifying principle of the universe, which was what all the pre-Socratic philosophers sought to uncover.  It turns out that Socrates student, Plato, had been right!  His "ideal forms" that existed in the realm of ideas were indeed the substance of everything on earth, and everything on earth relates to a spiritual truth that is revealed in scripture.
 
   RESONANCE
                                    
 As the resonant signals shift the sands into predestined patterns, the still small voice within our hearts can guide us to where we need to be.  As the Word (1 John 5:7) bears record in heaven, like the sands that respond to the signals of sound, if we resonate to the Word of God, we too can create beautiful, uniform, divinely-predestined patterns that become for us paths of peace, which will guide us toward fulfilling our own potential.
THE OVERVIEW
  1.  FORCES: Fundamental and Other
    FORCES: Fundamental and Other
    The dynamics of the four known forces of the universe: Gravity; electromagnetism; the weak force; and the strong force, as well as Newtonian physics, serve as governors, not only of the physical relationships between objects, but also as the governing patterns of the spiritual dynamics as well.
  2. VISION
    VISION
    "Where there is no vision, the people perish" (Proverbs 29:18) We need to "start with the end in mind" and hold on to that vision with all tenacity. This often entails breaking the chains of old things that have kept us bound. It's like a scene that you want to photograph, or a picture of a puzzle's box top: Both provide a visual of an end goal.
  3. REFLECTIONS
    REFLECTIONS
    As the waters reflect the sky, so too does the earthly dimension reflect everthing abiding in the heavenly realm. All that ,may be seen, touched or perceived by the senses is a mere reflection (a fact) of a greater and more enduring pattern or principle, which is the Truth.
From surface tension to diffusion, every dynamic having to do with water can be understood as relating to the dynamics between people and the information that they hear and to which they respond.  As the Bible declares, "A little leaven leavens the whole lump" (1 Corinthians 5:6), we see this occuring in the experient of diffusion.  And with surface tension, we see people adhering closely to those with the same fundamental structural outlook on life and repelling all others who don't agree with them.  What we hear with the ears and accept as true in our hearts, will color our complete understanding and relationship with the world at large, for "As a man thinks in his heart, so is he" (Proverbs 23:7).  In addition, we see surface tension at work in the situation where Jesus was seen walking on the water, where His "lightness of being" or rather His being Light enabed Him to flow upon the tightly adhered water molecules, as "the life which was the light of men" (John 1:4),  and as a fulfillment of the "shadows of things to come" (Colossians 2:17), which revealed themselves in the law and prophets.
