Life’s a Beach
Maharishi Yogi spoke about the ocean as an analogy for the mind. He compared
the waves to our thoughts and the depths of the ocean to the silent transcendental
level of our mind. The process of transcending is like a wave settling into the vastness of the sea.
The most settled state of our mind – pure consciousness – is not a flat,
empty silence but a dynamic field flowing within itself.
The next time you escape to the beach and dive into the ocean,
reflect upon your own consciousness. Coming out refreshed and rejuvenated
from a day at the beach is a small step towards attainment of wholeness in Being.
