Bottom of the ocean is further away this time.


Swimming at the surface

guided by gentle winds and waves.

 

Comfortable, effortless at the surface

forgetting

the only guarantee is change.

 

Change is a means to reach new frontiers of self awareness

we have not touched.

 

A change in wind and current takes the swimmer under the water.

 

Swimmer has been under the water many times before.

 

Swimmer feels frustrated for repeating seemingly old patterns again.

 

He thinks, I thought I was done with my schooling.

 

Swimmer sinks to the bottom of the ocean of his unconscious reality.

 

Nothing is in sight but dark murky waters.

 

Where is the bottom?

 

Where is the top?

 

Bottom of the ocean is further away this time.

 

Something has changed.

 

It is taking longer to get to the bottom.

 

What has gone wrong?

 

Panic covers the swimmer in the midst of darkness.

 

Hopelessly and helplessly sinking with no effort.

 

Suddenly…

 

“Bam”

 

His feet touch the bottom unexpectedly!

 

A sudden surge of reactive force propels the swimmer to

the surface at an amazing speed.

 

Swimmer flies out of the water like a dolphin

and swims at the surface again.

 

Swimmer is more aware of his boundaries.

 

Swimming with expectations of going under

to experience new frontiers.
