Bring Yourself Back

We love the Ocean. We love spending days at the beach; swimming, surfing, fishing, or just relaxing while watching the waves. The waves are constantly in motion. They come in and they go back out, they come in and they go back out, it’s a constant ebb and flow in harmony with nature. It’s effortless and therefore relaxing.  The size of the waves however are affected by winds and storms, just as we’re affected by disturbances from time to time. The waves stir up the sand as it meets the shore. As long as the storm is around the ocean remains in this elevated state of turmoil. If, however, you’d jar up that mixture of sand and ocean and took it away from the disturbance, in the stillness, the sand would settle on the bottom and the water on top would be clear.

You can’t control the storms that come your way. Sometimes you need to step away from the crazy, compose yourself, breathe, and gather your own moment of stillness. You have to bring yourself back to a state of love and peace.

A Wabi-Sabi Way of Life

Describing wabi sabi is complex.  As I believe, it’s something felt by all of your senses, and not what you think with your rationalized intellectual mind. It’s a heart felt intuitive intelligence. In art, objects, and life, it’s where everything, in its beautiful randomness shows us true beauty with its flaws and imperfections, not despite them. Where we are more in harmony with nature, versus trying to controlling it. Where art and objects are organic and natural, versus man made with shiny polished surfaces. Where you feel the warmth, and see the beauty, in everything that has endured the test of time. Where knowing that life is full of meaning, but its not perfect or permanent. Where a sense of freedom is felt by not getting caught up in worldly values, but instead enjoying tranquility in our world by living simpler, slowing down, and letting things develop in there own way.

Go confidently towards the life of your dreams – just be true to yourself, be real,…fully live, and appreciate each day.
