I am always grateful for the learning on my beach walks in the early morning. The learning today is to be is to be gentle to myself, to be those slow waves coming in and gently touching and smoothing the sand.
What is a person’s purpose? How do we define that? Is it defined by our own perspective? Or by others?
We all have a need for the support and guidance of others to reach our goals. This is especially true when one is considering making a big change in one’s life, perhaps a life change to realize a buried dream.
The Power of Listening, to others, to ourselves, to what is around us, to what is inside us, or even to silence.
When one is considering making changes in one’s life, small or big ones, it becomes critical to know the difference between realistic goals and expectations in order to avoid the pitfall of thinking they are one and the same.
As I walked, a verse of the poem, Sea Fever, by John Masefield popped up in my mind.
“I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied.”
When it seems your path is blocked, is it time to give up or change direction?
If every moment were just like this, then how would we know to identify it as tranquility?
Seeing with the eyes can, at best, give only a glimpse of life happening all around us. Invisibility in nature provides protection for living and nonliving things. Do we humans choose invisibility at times, perhaps burying dreams we had wanted to pursue in the past? Are we self-protecting or self-limiting when we do ?
The value of previous experience and the moment you finally reach a stable stone.
