“I remained ankle deep in the waters of my beginning for what seemed like eternity. Memories of heartfelt connections filled me. Visits with Old Friends, one after another nourished my soul. And the sorrows of times past left me; they were no more. Comforted by awareness and understanding of truths from the past freed me to live fully in the present. Old wounds were healed with the knowledge that all interactions were for a reason, even those that were not appreciated at the time of their occurrence. There were no coincidences. All was intended, and All were served. In that brilliant moment of understanding All That Was, All That Is became gratefully cherished. I was relieved to know my injuries to others were healed and the consequences were beneficial for those who had incurred them, as were the injuries I had received from others. My time in the waters of my beginning rejuvenated me. Words of gratitude were exchanged, new commitments were made, and farewells were lovingly shared. And then, my Friends of Old exited the beach, giving me a private moment to express my goodbyes to the Mother of my existence.
Now, I understand my compulsion to be near oceanic waters. Thank you for bringing me into existence. Thank you, for reaching out to me all those times when I’ve been in need. I didn’t know it was you who consoled me, but now I do, and the reality that you are here, wherever here is, fills me with joy. The waters of the Mother gently caressed my ankles again. How sweet her touch was.”
