Adopting a spiritual path, or spiritual practice is like a drowning person waving their arm above the waves. It attracts grace.
Most people don’t even know they’re drowning. But you’ve realised that. It’s a kind of awakening in itself, just to realise you’re drowning. It starts a search.
You can’t actually pull yourself out of the water, but you can wave your hand. It’s a mystery. A real beauty that happens. Grace and love.
Now the ocean isn’t threatening anymore. You are the ocean. You can swim in it, or just be it.
