The heart is a vessel that can be hard to Captain,
When torn between knowledge, and what we imagine,
Too much reality, sadly, leaves no room for hope,
But steer blind towards dreams, and you’ll crash on the coast.
Many ships have been wrecked, by too heavy a hand,
Though don’t be led astray, know you’re in command,
Don’t endanger your ship, your crew or your mission,
Use your map and your eye, plus your soul’s intuition.

It is fairly easy to get blown off course, or to think – I’m doing everything I’m supposed to be doing, so why am I making no progress?! When we observe our life through narrow expectations, we can find ourselves sailing around in tight circles, and getting nowhere special.
One of the most beautiful qualities of the Sea, is how little we will ever know about it, we have benefitted hugely from using what we do know, but when we combine that with our curiosity and verve to explore unchartered possibilities, that is when the real magic happens.
Sometimes, we might not be anywhere near where we want to be, but we may unknowingly be exactly where we need to be, at that particular moment. Steering against these currents, could wreck our vessel entirely, cost us future discoveries, treasure, and more.
Enjoy the voyage… when things are unfamiliar, embrace the experience and add the insights to your map, so that you have more to guide you in your future journeys. There is no formula for happiness, but those who are resourceful, full of gratitude, and ride the storms in an adventurous manner, will surely dance with the waves, and become one with their surroundings.
Love and Respect always,
