"The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time."
~James Taylor ~
Spending a bit of the time at the beach realigns my spirit with the natural cycle of rising and falling tides, and helps me to remember that all of life is like that. Our energy, like the sun, rises up over the horizon in the morning, shifts into full gear by noontime, blasts us through the afternoon, and then passes away again over the far hills at dusk.
Getting in synch with the rhythm of nature soothes the soul, and reminds us of our inner tides. We needn't be so rushed and harried. Life is a process, after all, and a cycling; not a first-one-to-the-finish-line kind of event.
Time is a cyclical, organic process, and not a race to the end.
