The Philosophy of The Beach
On the beach, I sense the futility of life. Nothing helps me understand my inner-being better than being here. It is where the safety of the land meets the hidden depths of the sea. Oceans of exploration, taking risks and finding new beginnings. My conscious mind is seemingly sane – the unconscious mind troubled.
Blue sky or massive storm represent calm or anger. The wind and its hidden abrasive sand are harsh sentiments within conversations. The sun blinds or enlightens. A sea of hidden dangers: Sky, water, sand, wind and sun symbolise humanity’s attitudes and personalities. Why are so many addicted to water? Water and emotions: tears of happiness or joy. Does a diver’s inner-being return to the safety of the womb? Does a sailors yacht represent freedom? What words are hidden in the rumbling waves? ‘We will bring you home and take you away’.
I think how little we know of life’s mysteries. Nothing is needed to be happy. As we age, we know less than children, the magic of imagination is easily lost.
My mind wanders: I make a recording it also free flows: the choice is to limit the editing:
A title is evasive – I’ll settle on “Beach Philosophy”
Alice and Bella played all day:
I watch Bella and Alice play: they do not need money or property. Their happiness is within imagination and stories about sea serpents and mermaids.
The construction of sandcastles and mermaid palaces is evidence of the girl’s creative minds. Kids should be guided to know that peace, happiness and working together opens the gates to a fulfilling life. And of course, I realise, they already know this truth, it is the illusion of adulthood, which destroys reality.
