Sea

The Sea – by Philip Dodson

The sea comes calm
It comes rough
It’s blue
Violet
Grey
Never blue

The sea goes in
It goes out
The sea brings life
It brings death
It is the creator
And the taker

The sea is the blood
That the planet lives by
The sea is the connector
The sea is the destroyer
The sea is high
The sea is low

The sea is everything
The yin
And the yang
The very essence
The sea is temporary
Yet permanent

The sea it’s mesmerising
The sea it calms
The sea brings peace
The sea is
The light
The sea

Live like you will die…because you will

‘live like you will die. Because you will’ – I read that somewhere today.

Interesting, there are two things that unite us all.

Firstly, our physical carnation will die at some point and almost certainly, everyone who is currently alive will be a pile of dust sometime in the next 50-100 years, you and I included.

Secondly, our inner energy, our spirit, our soul, is all part of the universe, everything that exists is connected by the same energy, we are one. That energy will continue forever.

Acceptance of our own death, now, changes our outlook on life, now in this moment, the only moment we can be alive. We spend a great deal of time and energy inside our minds imagining our own demise, what if we accept it and let go and then live this moment?

We can only die once and we will, so let go of the fear of that event, let go of the resistance, surrender to it. Then we are free from that burden and can live free of the fear.

The energy that made us came from the cosmos and will return to it after our body has expired, the real you and me, not the mind, body, name etc, the inner energy that is us never dies.

So stop reading this, go and live this moment it is all we have.
