22-053 Waves

Today’s Mandala

You can’t stop the waves,
but you can learn to surf.“
— John Kabat-Zinn

“Let the waves carry you
where the light can not.”
— Mohit Kaushik

Everything goes in waves.
Evolution goes in waves.
The ocean goes in waves.
Energy goes in waves.
Sound travels in waves.”
— Edgar Ramirez

Today’s MotD reminds us that life happens in waves. Using ocean waves as metaphor, we can learn how to dive under them to let them pass over. We can learn to ride up and over them as they begin to swell. We can learn to surf them either by body or by surfboard. And of course we can just stand there and let them crash on top of us. Each option provides a different experience. Some we enjoy. Some we may rethink about doing ever again.

Another option: we can stay out of the ocean completely. If we do so out of fear, we miss out on so much the ocean (life) has to offer. It may be worth exploring through journaling or meditation why that is so.

If we stay out of the ocean as a means of respite and self-care (to enjoy watching the waves and sea-related critters, feeling the sea breezes, meditating with sunsets/sunrises, and/or lying on the warm sand), then by all means, make it so.
