Ocean: Rhythms

This photo is a shot of the ocean between Bronte and Bondi Beaches in Australia. The whole world has beaches because land around the world is surrounded by oceans, which connect us all through tides, waves, currents, and the sea life within. The ocean can be wonderful or deadly, but that in itself is a rhythm. Salty water is like the amniotic fluid we all breathe in first. No wonder the number one summer destination for pleasure and relaxation is the beach! It’s like coming home.

Are you connected to the natural rhythms around you? What is your rhythm, and is it in synch with your desires? Every wave is followed by another, every tide, pulled by the moon, is followed by another. In and out. Like breathing, only eternal. Connect with the rhythms of nature and you will find your own natural rhythm.

Make sure to come back tomorrow!

    love it! Yes, for me the ocean is such an awesome escape, a way to take refuge from anything negative. As a kid, I used to vacation on the SC coastline. Back then, the family only got 10-14 days a year at the beach. But when my Dad got a job transfer to FL in the mid-70’s, the whole family couldn’t pack the bags fast enough. My brother grew up surfing & i’d make any excuse to get to the water. I make goals all the time running or walking & the beach is always included.

    Both parents didn’t swim and feared the water. We were never taught to swim, and while I enjoy being in a motor boat on a lake, I still am not fond of the water. I do love to shower and walk in the rain, but a swimming pool or hot tub is not for me. But just looking at the ocean from afar, that does touch something deep inside. And have always felt some connection to the tides and the pull of the moon. I guess my main connection to the pull of nature will always be on dry land. Thanks for opening this up to my consciousness!

    I was born under the sign of Cancer. The ocean means much to me. Being around, beside, and by any body of water is balm for my soul, even a fountain. I love to hear the sound of water, whether it is breakers, or a trickle. With the pull of the moon on the ocean, bringing in the tides and carrying them out, I feel myself sometimes being pulled that very way. I don’t place much stock in horoscopes, but I am certain that there is something to it. To dismiss it totally is akin to cutting off a hand. People say that I am moody because of this tug of war that nature plays out, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
