I've been spending at least two hours every day walking along the beach. For me this experience is incredibly spiritual. It is like I'm walking on the edge of the world. Everything around me is clean and unspoiled, almost like it has been created for me right at that very moment. The sand is white and dotted with shells and smooth pebbles. The ocean is a vibrant blue with swirls of foamy white.
The air is salty, yet beautiful. I can taste it. It is light, yet heavy. The mist from the ocean sprays all around, settling lightly on my skin and misting up my glasses. When I leave the beach I take the scent of the ocean with me. It is the scent of life.
I'm not particularly religious, but whenever I walk along a long stretch of unpatrolled beach I feel closest to our maker than at any other time. It is almost like I can reach out and touch the omnipresence responsible for our creation.
It is a place where my mind becomes clear. I feel healthy. I feel clean. I feel renewed. I feel like I am where I am meant to be. I believe we are all drawn to the elements of the earth we resonate the most with. For me it is the ocean.
Where are you drawn to? The ocean? A rainforest? The mountains? Someplace else?
