This Friday evening has brought perfect relaxation as my vacation winds down and we approach the transition back to home. Much to my surprise, I'm looking forward to getting back to the farm!
As I've spent time here on the beach admiring the tireless waves, the thought crosses my mind how symbolic the beach is in correlation to life. The beach, represents humans and how we experience life. The waves represent life itself- never ending. The waves crash upon the shore, some waves larger than others, much like the way life experiences can crash upon us, some moments more difficult than others. And as the waves keep coming in, unwavering in their effort to flirt with the sands of the shore, it reminds me of how life experiences keep flooding in, in effort to flirt with us and our awakened state of mindfulness. The waves of the magnificent ocean beg and plead with the sandy shore, occasionally taking bits and pieces from the shore back into it's sea belly. Again, much like life experiences, and at times, some of the bigger waves in life can wash us away and can claim our identity if we're not careful. We can be like the sandy shore, persuaded by the waves of experience in life, but like the shore, though pieces of us get washed away, the strongest part and perhaps the best part of us will always remain. Goodnight my friends, rest well.✨ Sending my love to you all, to see you through the waves.
