How can you tell when two oceans meet? Is there a different motion? Is there an unusually strong power? Can you see a line or meeting point? Or is there just an unmistakable feeling that there is something bigger than the two involved at that moment?
It’s a bit like that with people isn’t it. Sometimes there are moments when two people come together and there is a certain something that says this is going to be powerful, beautiful, awe inspiring, huge and beyond description or identification. Sometimes, when two come together the force and explosion is so powerful it may well be the same as ocean meeting ocean.
This isn’t necessarily a physical relationship, although that can be immense; this could be a personal or business relationship where you know something exciting is going to happen. This is one of those “wow” moments where you may have no idea what is taking place as such, but you do know that whatever is going to be created will be amazing. They are rare but when two come together to create something new it can be life changing, explosive, unexplainably exciting.
Something low down in your gut is burning. Your breathing is quickened and a bit more laboured than usual. Your senses are way more heightened. Your eyes seem brighter, your skin flushed and the hairs in the back of your neck at standing to attention. This is something special and needs to be allowed to be born.
You have a choice as this can be pretty scary, especially if it’s something you haven’t experienced before. You can back away and find reasons not to see this through or you can dive right in and lose yourself in the moment, the experience, the journey. Which is it to be?
Like the lover you once had, you can almost taste the pleasure this is bringing to you, your world, your future. You can close your eyes and enjoy every moments pleasure or you can close yourself down from your emotional, spiritual and physical needs and decide the risk of being hurt or let down is too great. Guess which I’d pick every time?
So, when this other and you meet like two oceans crashing together, will you ride the waves or allow yourself to sink beneath them?
