Riding the waves of beautiful pain

This was a recent Facebook status of mine and after re-reading it, I have seen some wisdom’ness within. It is my surfing analogy of the acceptance of emotional pain.

I am new in this vast, unpredictableness. They consistently come. They come unexpectedly and without warning. They sometimes come slow and weak, but often hard, powerful and strong.

You are blind to their beauty.

They overwhelm you as you try and control them. Try and control them, they crush you. Try and negotiate them, they crush you. There is no control. There is no negotiation. It is inevitable they will come. They are coming. They are powerful, you are weak. Weak, until you learn to ride with them.

Do not fight them, do not fear them, but respect them. Find acceptance of this powerful blue. Whether big, small, powerful or weak, ride each one with acceptance and with no fear

It is only then you will see and feel their beauty for what they really are.

  1. quite like this pal…. particularly the final NO FEAR aspect.

    e live our lives in fear…sub consciously most of the time…but clear this and everything opens in front of you.

    Good one. :)
