Vast is the difference between alone and lonely.
Everyone has their story;
A long day at work, a patience testing trip,
A body tired from illness, a tragic message, a lost friendship, a relationship ended.
So you walk for hours as thoughts seem relentless.
We can’t escape it, not ready to embrace it;
So we just sit.
Numb and silent, observing, breathing and surrendered.
It’s a surreal magic, in the middle of all that’s tragic – comes the answer.
There is call to be alone, just you and your heart, quiet in the moment.
Here we are not lonely, no need for company;
The connection is revealing, as we begin healing, just us and the sea.
The waves pull us far from the sentient mind,
Takes us beyond the situation, lets our emotions unwind.
We start to notice the glistening of the water, the way the sand allows our feet to dig deep – lets our eyes wander.
We can now feel the winds whipping salted air across our faces, then you smile;
It’s these sacred spaces, they come at just the right time.
This is reaching of high tide, with arms open wide… you spin as high as the seagulls fly;
Because we all know, that being alone is needed sometimes.
Because we can touch the inner child.
Because everything that brought us right here, keeps our dreams alive.
Give your soul the freedom – take a moment to celebrate your life.
