I was lying on the surface of the ocean today floating with my legs crossed as if I was lying on my bed. The moon was out in the middle of the sunlit sky. My ears just below the surface of the water, I could hear nothing other than the smooth motion of the ocean. Truly nothing could have made me happier. I felt complete, at peace, whole…ONE.
The ocean is one of my greatest teachers. The way it yields, flows, expands and returns to the greater whole, in a rhythmic and ever changing way.
The peace and serenity I feel just lying on the surface of the ocean, as great waves peak under my body, then tumble over and explode onto the shore, is truly therapeutic. It’s a cleansing, a massage and a teaching all in one.
As a tactile person I receive much from water, in the way it touches my skin and sensually speaks to me. Without having to sit in an upright meditative position, I’m catapulted into the Oneness of all of life, just by lying back. No mantra, no breathing technique, just being held in the heart of life, in the form of liquid LOVE:)
