What the Sea Tells Me

On our recent vacation, which was the main reason for my absence throughout December, we visited the sea twice. Once it was for a ferry ride and once it was to visit the beach. And while we were there, I remember my mom randomly asking me a question- what do we learn from the sea?


And this question isn’t just any old question. Think about it, whatย doย we learn from the sea? Logically speaking, there can be many philosophical angles to this question. For instance, my mother said that the sea tells teachesย her to break through her boundaries and to reach beyond the limit the world has set, the way the sea crashes against the shore, seeking to leave it behind.


When I mused over it for a while, a poem I had previously written popped into my mind. I said that the sea showed me how there are both rises and falls in life, both ups and downs, but they are both parts of the ocean of our lives. The disruptions and joys that we experience from time to time, when seen from a broader perspective, are only parts of it, and they are what makes it whole.


And so I followed my train of thought here, and I am eager to know where it will lead you. So here’s something you can do when you have nothing else on your hands- think about it, and tell me, what does the sea tell you?

  1. This is such a beautiful post, Mukta. The sea teaches me that there is a plan for you, to trust the direction your life is taking you in and not to resist a force bigger than yourself.

    1. I agree! There have been more than a few instances in which little things have woven themselves into a much bigger picture, and I believe that goes for all of us. ๐Ÿ˜

  2. Such a beautiful post, Mukta! And lovely photos too.

    The sea teaches me to keep going, even if my goal is miles away, because Iโ€™ll get there eventually. In other words – as Dory would say – it teaches me to just keep swimming ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. That’s cool! I love the sea because it reminds me of God’s power. How a calm peaceful ocean can turn violent in seconds. It’s amazing!
