Ups and downs…yep

If we expect plain sailing and smooth seas, we will be disappointed.

Life is always going to bring the ups and the downs. No ‘good’ thing will last and no ‘bad’ thing will either.

Everything is temporary on the surface of our time bound life situation.

Deep within our true essence and soul however, is like the bottom of the lake calm whatever is happening on the surface. Whether good or bad according to the mind and its labels, deep beyond thought is eternal peace.

Peace is within us always whatever the ups and downs. We can only access the peace in the present moment that is now.

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
