I started surfing and exploring the ocean back in the early 80’s – The feeling is the same all these years later, every surfer will preach to that feeling: one of pure aliveness, joy and freedom from riding upon or depending upon your view – Being a part of the wave for a short moment. Now what has changed in the many decades since I first experience what the healing power of the ocean is me, the reflection in the mirror has changed: the boy changed into a man, and perhaps somewhat sadly I am closer to death. My practice as a Buddhist is to remind myself of the bittersweet natural law that we can’t escape…Impermanence.
How about taking a minute, slow down, take a deep breath…feel your heart beat, listen to your heart beating, listen to your breathing that goes along with the heartbeat that happens non-stop all day and all night!
Movement of the body activates internal energy which in turns calms the mind, awakens your spiritual energy, helps the body heal itself, prevents illness, helps you feel connected to the universal energy.
