“The sea does not reward those who are to anxious, too greedy or too impatient. One should lie empty , open, choiceless as a beach — waiting for a gift from the sea.” -Anne Morrow Lindbergh
We rush. We run. We control every little thing we can. Here and there. Instant gratification an arms reach away. We spend our lives in this modern age plotting and planning an unseen future. When our plans are interrupted an anxiety storm swells up like tidal waves.
Waves can bring torment. Waves can also bring serenity. The ocean can not be rushed. It can not be told when to swell and when to flat. Which direction to go and what time to arrive. You must wait. You must wait in the line up. You must wait for your turn. You must wait to get better.
You must wait.
These patient souls waited… and waited… and waited… Till a famed swell on a north bound path hit our shores. The water rolled, the rocks thundered, and the souls rushed with energy.
Now. We wait.
