I was once again taken into a place of deep meditation and wonderment of "becoming" as I played in Mother Ocean. As I gave myself to the currents I began a journey I think, we are all familiar and experience often. One of trust. I sensed at first, as though the strength of Her waves and currents would over power me, but as I gave more and more of myself over to the movements of the water and began trusting in my innate knowing I do float, I noticed a shift in my entire being. My body began loosening. I felt my entire body as fluid and my skin the container holding me together. A sense of joy and playfulness took over. I could feel myself smiling and even giggling at times. I would lay down in shallow water inviting the pulls and push of the ocean to move my body and spirit wherever it'd like. I became delighted with the sensations that rushed threw me. I floated out further from shore and began diving into the bottom of the waves just before they tumbled over me and I found a momentary stillness. I was neither moving down, up or sideways. Each stillness seemed to reach deeper into my heart. Play, playing with nature, another person or alone. The "how" we play is not important the act of playing is what is important. It brings us into present time and the act of living spontaneously by improvisation. One could even look at play as being a dance with the "unknown". "Cast your fate to the wind". Try it, it feels good, revitalizing, and inspiring. Enjoy.
Is it only Play?
