Just like waves flowing on the surface of the ocean, the surface of our mind is flowing with thoughts. But, when we dive deeper, we realize something much more profound that exists, a peaceful calm. In this meditation, we practice diving deep within the realm of our heart and mind to experience this inner calm and then make the intention to ride the waves of our thoughts rather than drowning in them.
Visualizing myself walking along a shore, I felt the grainy sand below the soles of my feet. As a slight breeze flew through my hair, I became memorized by the sights and sounds of the waves gently flowing into the shore. Synchronizing my breath with these waves, I looked out to see the pure vastness of the ocean. Noticing an inner calm in the air surround me and swell up in my body, I felt at ease. In those moments of ease, I set the intention to be a witness to the thoughts and emotions I experience today. I will ride the waves rather than getting caught up and potentially drowning. Surfing these waves, the depths of my being will remain untouched. Thank you for such a beautiful meditation, Nitima!
