The ocean is simply magical. It also commands great respect. I have been on calm seas that have turned quickly into turbulent chaos, with waves crashing onto shore with such powerful force, and then only hours later it has returned to a gentler sea.
It is a perfect analogy for the storm of chaos that can pass through our lives, internally and externally. We can become so fixated and seized by the energy of it, believing this is the new state and something we need to escape. But what if instead we welcomed in the turbulence and moved toward the eye of chaos, viewing it as necessary energy to stir things up, bring us new lessons for learning and growth, to set us on a new path, knowing it is just passing through, and that the calm seas of our lives will return. As in nature, so it is with us, continuously cycling through the calm and chaos.
