I learned that everyting is inevitable and i should always look for the full part of the glass and enjoy every moment
I cant sleep for like a days.
Still cant sleep, but its okay, i feel relaxed and the story was awesome
You’re not just a wave, but a part of an entire ocean
That’s powerful inspirational and insightful. You are not just one thing and when you die you are gone, you are part of a whole, and you go back to the source of the whole. Wow!!
Ok experience
This story did make me feel less stressed, but I feel it didn’t elaborate on the full value of the troubled wave.
I learned that I am a part of this world for a reason, all my life I felt I was too unimportant and useless ,but my dad told me I do have a purpose and so did this story..
Like the little wave...
I KNOW I’m part of things bigger than myself, and am proud and happy to be so! But with life still so upside-down for me, I’m constantly filled with anxiety and trepidation. HOW will I care for myself? My wife? My children? Without the means to do so, I find myself unmotivated to do all of the extra things I used to fill my days with, beyond working! My volunteer work time has been reduced to a minimum. My sideline bakery business is gone, seemingly for good. My social circle is mostly gone as well. I’m sad, worried and quite lonely all of the time now! I’ve received little-to-no help from the public quarter through these last few years since suffering my massive stroke. My state has constantly refused, with one lame excuse after another, to pay out the unemployment insurance benefits myself and my family have paid into constantly throughout the years! I’ve now been in a couple of years’ holding pattern of waiting for the federal Social Security Department to take any action on my permanent disability claim...the lawyer I have hired to assist me with this onerous task assured me that this is simply a VERY slow process, working with SS, but I’m desperate and anxious constantly...I’ve met folks who have waited upwards of 10 years for resolution to their disability claims! I cannot wait that long! I don’t even WANT to be considered “disabled”! I WANT, NEED to work! It’s one of the things which defines me! The need to return to the job I was eventually laid off from was one of the motivating factors which got me out of the hospital! I’ve been terribly depressed, so much so that I have sought out mental health services, and therapy, to help me better cope and deal with things! About a year ago, I was having suicidal thoughts (VERY unlike me!), and through my iPhone’s health app; discovered mindfulness, and downloaded, installed, and began my journey with Aura!
The sound of the crashing waves made me embrace the Aura connection of the ocean smaller waves that were floating. This gave me a sense of belonging to something more powerful than the rocks. It's always nice to be a part of something inspiring!?!
It is so important to remember we are not alone. We are all connected to something greater than ourselves. In times of despair, we can draw on strength from outside ourselves—from nature, friends, or the well of spirituality. This story reminds me of David Whyte’s poem, “Everything Is Waiting for You,” posted below. Your great mistake is to act the drama as if you were alone. As if life were a progressive and cunning crime with no witness to the tiny hidden transgressions. To feel abandoned is to deny the intimacy of your surroundings. Surely, even you, at times, have felt the grand array; the swelling presence, and the chorus, crowding out your solo voice. You must note the way the soap dish enables you, or the window latch grants you freedom. Alertness is the hidden discipline of familiarity. The stairs are your mentor of things to come, the doors have always been there to frighten you and invite you, and the tiny speaker in the phone is your dream-ladder to divinity. Put down the weight of your aloneness and ease into the conversation. The kettle is singing even as it pours you a drink, the cooking pots have left their arrogant aloofness and seen the good in you at last. All the birds and creatures of the world are unutterably themselves. Everything is waiting for you.
The Little Wave
This story was truly quite reassuring. You're never alone, and you're never really gone. The sounds were very relaxing as well. I just dont see why this will calm you down.
This was the 1st time that I listened to a story and didn’t really feel much appreciation for it. After reading others responses about this app story it’s clear to me now that the story’s moral is that were never truly alone . It’s just my heart the metaphor of the waves is
