There is an ebb and flow to life. People and situations wash upon the shores of our lives. The mighty pressures of the water gently sculpt and shape us. The tides of change have great purpose in our lives. When it is time, the waters recede and sometimes carry things away; even things we love. The tides, while powerful, can move in our lives so gently, if we allow. If you resist the awesome tidal forces of life, you are going to hurt yourself. There are some things, people and experiences you cannot have or change. When the waters of life move upon you; do not struggle — give in and let go. Be still and let the waters flow around you. Let the ancient precession of tides cut a beautiful shoreline in your heart.

Life wears you down
  each day, little by little.
Like sandcastles, grain by grain
  back to the sea, breath by breath.
Back to the soil, the blood recedes,
  to the unknown, from the unknown.
Hands that create,
  and then wash away…

"When a big change occurs in your life it forces you to change direction. Sometimes the new path may not be easy, but you can be absolutely certain that there is magnificence for you on the new path. You can be absolutely certain that the new path contains things that you could not have experienced otherwise. When we look back at a negative event that occurred in the past, we often see how in fact it transformed our life. We see how that event directed us toward a life that we would not change for anything." — Rhonda Byrne

Thank you for your beautiful post. It was like a lighten bolt of reality that touch my heart, my inner spirit. It's like you read my mind how I'm fascinated and feel about the ocean, the tide, the sound. You managed to captured the true meaning of the Tides, and for that I am so ever grateful. : - )
