As one of your famous authors eloquently put it:
“Life has many ways of testing a person's will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.” Paulo Coelho
And this is exactly what my main task is. I assist you humans in achieving your highest potentials at times by letting you ride high on my waves and at other times, when I retract back and forcefully pull you back with me, I’m making sure that you get enough rest again.
You see, your life is supposed to be a series of ebbs and flows or cycles. Just think about it:
The sun rises each day after kissing the moon good bye and each 24 hours they briefly meet again when day follows night, when light rises and the peaceful particles of darkness vanish one by one. You wake up, start your busy days and then look forward to the evenings where you can unwind and relax.
Then there are the cycles of ebbs and flows in your life. Sometimes, when you least expect it, I will come right behind you and will make you surf my wave so you can strongly and forcefully move ahead with your visions, ideas and projects and it will seem like no one and nothing can stop you. You might feel inspired and creative and there is only one direction you can move to: forward. I deeply love to give you these expansion phases for it allows you to fully experience yourselves when you are able to give it a 100% and to show to the world and yourselves what you are made of.
But then again I also love the low tides and providing you with retraction phases in your lives. You might feel as if magical forces are pulling you back and no matter how much you would want to move forward, I will pull you back until you give up and trust that you need this time of retraction.
You see, I love nothing more than seeing you humans catching up again with yourselves, your thinking patterns and your emotions. You need this time to let go of whatever you were not able to deal with yet on an emotional level. You need these times of reflection, of going back inwards and doing some soul searching as you all need these periods where you can just think and contemplate. And you especially need these phases to learn how to trust. How to trust in yourselves and that after this retraction phase a happiness wave like me will make sure that you will surf on the very first big and dynamic wave of the high tide, bringing you back to where you stopped, or even a bit further. For you can only achieve your highest potential after regular periods of rest.
I help you to undergo a regular metamorphosis in your lives. Periods of doubts, frustrations, loneliness or sadness can only remain until the next happiness wave swipes over you. When I do this, I take away all your insecurities and the heaviness you were carrying along with you and I transmute them into sea salt or sand.
I’m also a teacher of the present moment for there is only one way to surf a happiness wave like me: to be fully present in the moment. The moment of now: for there is no other moment where you can truly experience happiness. The past is gone, the future not born yet. All you really have is the present moment. You humans need to learn how to make the most of it and to comprehend that there is a time for everything in your lives.
Now, I’m not a religious happiness wave, but I do love this passage from your bible:
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
a time of war, and a time of peace.
You humans came here on earth to experience yourselves in all of these situations, because how can you truly appreciate laughter when you never experienced tears. How can you possibly understand and experience love when you don’t understand hate? How can you truly appreciate success when you never failed? This is what life is about: A series of events taking place so that you can experience yourselves in all of these situations.
And I’m always there waiting for you to be ready to surf the next happiness wave after you experienced a period of retraction.
