If you know you are the ocean, you are not afraid of the waves.
Why are you not afraid of the waves? Because waves are a natural part of the ocean.
You guessed it, this is another metaphor for life.
If you know that you are a spirit having a human experience and that life is meant to be just that, an experience, then you are not afraid of what life throws at you.
Experiences, good or bad, are a natural part of life just like waves are a natural part of the ocean.
If the ocean became afraid of the waves, what would it have to do. It couldn’t try to avoid the waves. They will always be there. The ocean would have to learn to live in harmony with the waves and in turn shed its fear of them.
This is the same for the experiences in your life. Expect them, accept them, embrace them. They are a natural part of you and that will not change.
