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.

Treasure Found On The Beach – Gratitude

About a year ago I had a dream that I was alone on the beach, and felt a deep sense of joy an peace. I was walking with the waves to my left and the shore to my right. My footsteps hit where the ocean met the sand, with my feet occasionally getting wet, by the still warm waters running in with the waves.  The sun sparkled on the water, but it wasn’t so bright to be blinding, just a beautiful glistening. I looked down to where my next step would land, and I noticed a different shimmer. So I stopped to investigate. The next waves white foam receded back to the ocean, revealing parts of a gold chain and pendant encrusted with rubies. The rest was hidden by the sand, but I knew there was more. I couldn’t believe my good fortune – that no one else had seen this.

Today I went for a walk on the beach, and it was so much like my dream, that I kept looking for the treasure – ” just knowing” that it would appear.  As I walked, and walked, and walked, I realized the treasure was… the beautiful day, the warm water, the serenity and peacefulness of being alone on the beach. With the luxury of being able to see and feel it all.  I couldn’t believe my good fortune. 🙂  and I reminded myself on this week of Gratitude and Thanksgiving, of all we have to be thankful for. Everything is right in front of our us – We have it now! So much to be grateful for!  Look for it, it’s all around!
