Oh To Be As Water


Look see the wave crash
Listen to the mighty roar
Watch the droplets fly
Smashed to smithereens and yet
The ocean repairs itself

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. Sadly…unlike the humans…something quite special about the sea.

    • Perhaps the answer is simply (or not so simply) to allow ourselves to melt back into the ocean. I seem to find hints of this solution (Ouch! 😛 ) in so many places. I see that you also frequent http://mindfulbalance.org.

      Of course I comment here within the existential framework; at the flesh-and-blood interface reconstitution is not an option, although once again any reaction bids us reexamine who, what and where we are, does it not?


  2. Water fits every place it visits and a crashing ocean wave gathers itself and returns to the sea to become a new form and a new smashing set of waves filling the surface of the shore and rocks, caressing in a demanding way to be felt then removed only to return redone.

  4. I love this one, Ben! So simple, yet profound… yes, the ocean does repair itself. A great meditation – the ocean within us can also be made whole….
