I love to watch ocean waves and I can probably spend a whole day with this scenic backdrop just watching the waves. I don't have to say anything or do anything but watch. It centers me. There are times, depending on the tide, that the waves are big and strong and then times that they are gentle and calm. I realized on that day that I was spelunking (or at least attempting to and failing miserably) that a wave can throw you back to the shore (I was so desperate to get to the other side, where more rocks and a cave awaited) or if we are not careful, it can suck us in. Whatever wave you see, one thing you can be sure of is that they will come, crash and then smooth itself out. If you learn to read the pattern of the waves in your life through your interaction with them, you can understand the energy of a wave, how to use it to your best advantage, how to dance amidst its awesome power and how to avoid crashing into one. Then you learn to ride the waves of life.
