mother ocean's lesson book is a quick read:
Find Your Soul
Give of Your Soul ...to others ...and back to her earth
chapter 3: ...reread chapter's 1 & 2.
she is the world's best seller of peace and harmony. and you'll find yourself studying her pages for a lifetime. i suppose that is what inspires me most about the timeless story of the surfer as a waterman. this fleeting, yet powerful, visceral interaction between man's soul and the ocean from whence life is given, is communicated through lines drawn upon water. man's mighty words are scribed with his quiver on the eternal flowing form of water. so it is, that a brief transcription of man's will is laid to rest, written and read by two souls, eternal in nature; the minute and the massive. understanding each others purpose for that brief, beautiful moment. for in the grand scale of things, the share commonality. they are both minute. they are both massive. both in their potential and in their power to connect, with others.
...today I had the honor of hearing surfing legend Shaun Tomson speak. he gave one of the most moving speeches I have ever heard. if you haven't read his book The Code: The Power of "I Will" - i will strongly suggest you do so.
I WILL be an author. Thank You Shaun.
