Riding The Waves

    Riding the waves

    Emotions rise and fall,
    fueled by unruly thoughts,
    like ocean waves, we learn to ride,
    knowing that it will pass,
    and calm restored.

    There are storms and lightning,
    we may feel like we are drowning,
    then it calms and we find peace for a time.

    There is love and friendship,
    the waves beautiful and they carry us,
    over the rough eddies that we must traverse,
    carrying us into deeper love and trust,
    learning forgiveness and compassion.

    In the midst of the whirlwind, we can find peace,
    if we ground ourselves on what is stable,
    eternal, and loving.

    To pray can bring us to a place of inner silence,
    we can observe the waves without being pulled under,
    for all things pass, and life moves on,
    nothing lasts forever in this life.

    We need to get through each day with its worries,
    not burdening ourselves with the waves
    that may come on the morrow.—Br.MD
