Sailboats move slowly. Slow down your life and enjoy the sail.
Be honest and respectful with your communication. A small boat becomes smaller with disharmony.
- Embrace fear
Resistance turns the fear in on itself and gives it strength. Let it move through you like a passing storm.
Help others and they will help you when you need it. There will come a day when you will need help.
- Be a sponge
There is always something more to learn. The sailor who thinks he/she knows everything is destined to experience a difficult lesson.
There is only so much room on a boat so don’t get attached to things. Take care of the stuff you do have so that it doesn’t have to be replaced.
A small space means using things for more than the intended purpose. Do you really need it? Can it be used for more than one thing?
- Rhythm of Nature
Be in awe of the natural rhythm of the earth; this rhythm is delicate. Do not contribute to its imbalance.
Be grateful for a safe passage, a beautiful sunset, a peaceful anchorage – anything that reminds you of your shared connection to source.
Life really is simple if you strip away all the crap we get attached to. Live simply. Love completely.
