Unseen forces

Unseen forces

I had underestimated the quiet joy and peace that would come from sliding across the surface of the ocean’s depth. I don’t feel confined at all – I feel quite free in the flow of perpetual motion. And I feel quite safe in the boat’s cradle – while also remaining very conscious of the ocean’s ultimate deciding power and control.

I’m not sure why, but I have always felt most alive and aware and connected when I am surrounded by and overwhelmed by forces of nature. I like to feel small, humbled, reminded that I am not in control. I love to sense the immensity of the natural and spiritual world.

I do not know if others feel the same, but I am content to be alone in awe and appreciation of unseen forces…
