With the summer fading into the realm of memories, maybe now is not the time to think about the sea, yet observing on a daily basis the tide of life is always a beneficial practice.
We could take observing on a daily basis the tide of life to mean noticing our breathing and engaging in a moment of reflection.
Sitting quietly, being aware of the flow of our breath as thoughts pass through the mind, is a way of observing on a daily basis the tide of life. Ideas form, arrive then disperse as waves break on the shore. There is no need to hold onto anything, we can let everything come and then let everything go.
Input worthy of being followed up will remain in one form or another after the exercise. The rest will be long gone.
Watching the clouds is another method of observing on a daily basis the tide of life. Once again, it is unnecessary to endeavour to grasp onto a specific shape, image or thought. The value of observing on a daily basis the tide of life is found in the process, not the results.
Taking awareness beyond a single instance to a subsequent one then the next, on the other hand, does give us a tangible result, one of being present in a world seemingly doing everything to keep us as if in a trance.
