The Ocean

Friday, 11 March 2011

Yesterday morning I took a long walk on the beach and soaked in a little bit of Vitamin D along with calming effects of listening to waves crash. Not many people were out so I did a few yoga poses, stretches and deep breathing. I concentrated on the fact that the Universe is constant. Waves will continue to come in and recede. The moon will always pull the tide. Life goes on. It is up to us to make the best of it.

While feeling a little more peaceful and full of life, I didn't forget to be in awe of the ocean. I even remember a flash of fear thinking about the power of the sea. Premonitions sometimes hit us but I didn't know at the time why I was overwhelmed with the thought: Don't take the power of nature for granted.

The news about the earthquake in Japan came into my Twitter feed early this morning. The scenes of destruction are heart breaking. While I do not believe God causes natural disasters, I certainly respect the power of nature and am thinking tonight of those who have lost everything.

May we all remember to count the blessings in our life and be happy. Waves come in too quickly sometimes.
