The Ocean

You just can’t force or push yourself against the waves. They hit you in the chest, knock you back and drag you under. It is best to float. Kick back and hang on to the board. Transitory rolling boulders will carry you up and over (careful it doesn’t also carry you away).

Everywhere is reflecting diamonds, but these aren’t really diamonds and it doesn’t matter. Eternity is experienced hypnotized by the beauty of its illusion. Underneath its surface are other realities. Universes.

It is everywhere, covering the earth but can’t be drank. In fact, it’s poison if you try.

Kind of feels like a cruel joke, unless it’s intentional, an existential inference on this archetypal symbol.
