“Hearing the ocean waves crashing on the shore is such a healing sound. It reminds me of my own breath rhythm.”
Today I found my feet walking on the sand. The sound of the waves crashing on the shore woke me up from the mystery that has been occupying my being for past few days. The beach is the one place where I can be present in times when I alone can’t conjure my own presence. In times when I go to the heart of the places in my head that scare me.
It is in this place and in this moment that I am experiencing being one with nature. It is in this moment that I felt the universe tell me, “I see you.”
I was almost in tears when I responded, “I am here now. I have returned. I am present. I see you too. I apologize if I ever doubted you. This is clearly no man’s foolish world. Thank you for bringing me back home.”
Here I am gazing at the universe with a stronger faith in our connection than I ever have before, a sweet butterfly comes to hang out with me where I am sitting. I smile and say, “I guess we’re both just here now.”
