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.
