As I explore my inner awareness, I imagine this space to be like the sea. I am in a boat skimming the surface taking in the beauty that meets my eye as I lookout over the water. Over time, I am drawn to look over the side of the boat into the depth of the sea. I have a choice to remain in the boat or dive into the water. I can choose to explore the unknown aspects of my being that lie deep within; Meditation is part of this exploration.
I will carefully explore little by little, setting no goals or purpose for the exploration just simple awareness and observation. I leave you with an eastern saying, “Pearls do not lie on the seashore. If you desire one you must dive for it.”
