Wet, Wild, and Windy

By BijaB

Run to the ocean. Meet yourself there.

When you look at waves

               from a distance

                              they almost look

                        still.

Get right down in there

                 and they are deep

                                        and daring.

One

        right after the other.

                              Breaking

                                    wildly

                                           turbulent

          abandon,

                  with meaning.

Your feelings,

                        when you don't look at them,

                                                    when you hide

from a distance,

                they seem to disappear.  And all that is left

          are your mind-born waves

                                         from where you cease to feel.

                                                   Don't be afraid to feel.

Drop yourself into

                                your raging-waves.

                                                       You can ride them.

            You can cross the sea.

                             It's unfathomable.

                                    Be deep and daring.

      Stay with your breathing.  And get right down in there.

              Feel what it feels like

                                 to be tossed

                        around

                                                     by what you really feel.

              Run to the ocean.  Meet yourself there.

Many unaware ones never know

                          that the wet, wild and windy waves

                                                                  that feel and heal

         can surely save you.

                                Roam

                                       your boundless sea.

Successfully ride the waves of your emotions — these practices and tools can help.
