Artist's Description

Photo taken 11 March 2007 Tony Ryan

The writing associated with this picture is Befriending the ocean in me. It was a bit long to write beside the photo. I got a bit stuck with what to do. I most probably still would have liked to put it with the photo but I got in too much concern with what others would think. An over-stress that I am lessoning by understanding why I stress. Embracing to realise and release restrictive energy.

This picture was taken after a long day and night of inner and outer struggle. I was having great trouble accepting how an experience was going. I had expectation for things to be a certain way and in a direction that I was wanting to feel special. With the hurt and rejection I had behind my expectation nothing was going to be smooth sailing.

The life I was holding in me was the life that could only play out, outside of me. Feeling let down with how things were going on the day and into the night. I struggled to let go and just be with the environment and trust what would come if I was at peace and accepting the way.

Once I could speak of the struggle and the expectation I was holding, I was able to feel some freedom in myself and the environment I was in. This photo was taken after a little aspect of myself opened. It isn’t the best photo but I like that it is by the ocean. My eyes aren’t that deep blue most of the time. I have a dedication to know the deep blue so I can be open within and without all the unconscious patterning and entangled experiences that have been stored in me.

Taking the time and responsibility for the ocean that you live in will bring gifts from the depths which await in your awakening

The ocean, your ocean within yourself is a vast depth for you to know and understand.

Your Empowerment and Self Empowerment is within your waters.
