#Book : The Works Of Flavius Josephus
War of the Jews Book 2 Chapter 8 Verse 5
5. And as for their piety towards God, it is very extraordinary; for before sun-rising they speak not a word about profane matters, but put up certain prayers which they have received from their forefathers, as if they made a supplication for its rising. After this every one of them are sent away by their curators, to exercise some of those arts wherein they are skilled, in which they labor with great diligence till the fifth hour. After which they assemble themselves together again into one place; and when they have clothed themselves in white veils, they then #bathe their #bodies #in #cold #water
As most people are aware, we cannot stay under a very cold shower for too long. This is because #cold #water #holds #an #immense #power and as humans we are unable to be within that power for too long. You may think that it is just because the water is cold, but it is due to the fact that #ColdWater holds so much light. Water is not just a simple chemical formula. The #Essenes were a group of people who came together, in and around Palestine, more than 2000 years ago to study and perfect a spiritual way of life. The #Essenes #believed #that #water #was #an #angelic #being. They knew that the dominant angel inside of them was water. They observed that as water was heated up, the molecules expanded, and the Angel of Water backed-off. They cleansed their physical and spiritual bodies three times a day by taking cold-water plunges..
