Crater Lake has the rather auspicious designation as one of the clearest and cleanest bodies of water on the entire planet earth. Light penetrates to around 130 feet compared to the 60 to 80 feet in the most pristine of alpine lakes. That purity is used as an indicator of our environmental health, assuming any change in clarity corresponds to some shift in the ecological balance. Besides, it is beautiful!
When I sit on the caldera rim and gaze into the deep blue expanse, I always feel energized and mentally cleansed. No wonder the indigenous Klamath people view the lake as a sometimes terrifying place of spiritual power. Their stories tell of the lake’s creation—resulting from a battle with Llao, a spirit of the underworld. The symbolism is not lost on me. Our clarity always reveals our shadow, hidden in the underworld of our psyche. When I witness this lake and experience it as a mirror of my true awareness, any obscuration is illuminated. It is worth the trip.

May everyone experience the teaching of water in all her forms. This is the dakini of mirror-like wisdom.

Much love,
With Gratitude
