Inspiration From The Passion Of Waves
Watch the waves, small waves, and the large waves. Watch them coming in, on the shore untiringly. What do we see? We see the passion and energy. We also wonder about the purpose of the non-stop motion of the waves.
Waves have the undying passion of meeting the shore. They never get tired doing that. One after another, they keep on coming. They keep on smashing on the shore and then subsiding. Then comes another wave. This goes on and on. We have watched the waves so many times that we don’t pay attention to this passion. This passion can teach us a lot.

The first teaching is not getting tired. Waves don’t get tired. They have a job to do – meet the shore again and again. So they keep on. When we have a job to do, we must behave like that. Non-stop work without getting tired. We will surely get tired, but a visual of waves will remind us immediately that we have work to do and we will continue despite all the tiredness.
