I have always used the phrase “To be in your element” so easily. Never taking into account the words at play. Sitting here by the ocean this phrase has suddenly gotten new meaning for me.
What is your element?
Earth. Fire. Wind. Water.
I have never been an over religious person. Yes, I grew up in a Christian based family, but I could never come to terms with a dogma that is build upon selective acceptance. The values however has become and integral part of my life.
I am a Pisces at heart.
Just like the ocean is ever flowing, ever changing, so is my heart. so is my personality. Always torn between two worlds.
Dreams vs reality. Stability vs creativity. The concrete vs the abstract. Life vs death. Absolute happiness vs drowning depression.
There is water in my soul.
I have always opened up my soul and mind more when I’m in the water. In the ocean. Flowing free. Being. And the concept if it has never been quite understood so well until I read the paragraph in “The memoirs of a Geisha”:
“Waiting patients doesn’t suit you. I can see you have a great deal of water in your personality. Water mever waits. It changes shape and flows around things, and find the secret paths no one else has thought about – the tiny hole through the roof is the bottom if a box. There’s no doubt it’s the most versatile of the elements. It can wash away earth; it can put out fire; it can wear a piece of metal down and sweep it away. Even wood, which is its natural compliment, can’t survive without being nurtured by water. And yet, you haven’t drawn on those strengths in living your life, have you?”
I am the water that finds the path but need to be able to flow to find my path.
“Watch for the thing that will show itself to you. Because that thing, when you find it, will become your future.”
As Pisces are said to be the oldest of the Zodiac. the knowledge and spiritual connections will guide you.
Open yourself up and let the water guide you.
I am alive.
I am in my element.
