The Peace Wave

I am blessed to live in a beach town located on the Atlantic coast of central Florida, specifically the Space Coast.  It’s a surfing town, and this weekend we had a swell of rolling waves that lasted all weekend.  As the weekend progressed, many amazing surfing photos started to appear on my Facebook feed.  The below images are just a few captured by David Pritzker of Raw Surf. It reminded me of a beautiful passage I recently read by one yoga master, Erich Schiffmann, I must share it with you:

“The purpose of yoga practice…is to experience the truth about what you are. It’s about the wave experiencing itself as it is and thereby experiencing its inherent ocean nature. Every wave is the entire ocean in specific expression, and the peace of the ocean’s depth is its peace — available to be experienced. Each of us is an individually unique expression of the one and only divine God.”(1)

My wish is you find the Peace within you. This is especially important as the Holiday Season is now upon us, so make time for YOU. It can be as simple as breathing exercises in the privacy of your own home or attending your local yoga, meditation or spiritual gathering place.

Peace be with you.
