Have you noticed? The movement of the breath isn’t so different from the movement of waves: there's steadiness and a soothing quality to the movement... and within this movement, there is also change ever-present.
In fact, I think that’s one reason why people are drawn to come to the beach. In northern California, lots of people don’t even get in the ocean because of the chilliness, and yet they’re still drawn there. There’s beauty, sure, but I think the peace of watching and hearing the waves has a lot to do with this pull to be by the ocean.
I invite you to take a few moments at the beach with me watching the waves and breathing.
