John Zachary Young concluded in his textbook Life of Vertebrates, that “Living things still retain in their ionic makeup characteristics of the sea.”
We are of the sea. Magnificent! Life sustaining! Forever!
The amniotic fluid in which you floated as a fetus was salty, like the sea. And, as Andrew Schafer, a professor at Weill Cornell Medical College notes, our blood plasma has a concentration of salt and other ions that is remarkably similar to sea water. And as the earth is about 71% water, so are our bodies.
So we go to the sea to find our beginnings.
With eyes closed and rhythmic breathing, find the current that takes you within.
I stand at the edge of my soul and seek to capture the endless power of my connection to the sea, to the planet. Each breath opens my inner ear. The sea will wash away my concern. I let it resonate and hum a sweet song of peace in my heart.
