What Seas Are You Sailing?

“Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors.”

– African proverb –

If your seas are rough right now, take heart. Sail with a calm spirit and a sense of wonder, for even storms have their beauty. You will come through it all with deeper wisdom and greater skill.

Nourish peace, cultivate loving kindness, and carry the calm.
