I am the water... by SachaKalis I am the water... by SachaKalis
”Fear of drowning is one reason why many hesitate to learn swimming. Similarly, for fear of failure, we hesitate to dream big or pursue ambitions. We worry about getting drowned in a sea of challenges, problems and roadblocks. We think the world is out there to take us down.

If one just keeps pushing the water down, it is hard for the person to drown. Just as if we continue to keep pushing negative thoughts down, we will continue to keep our chin up and so stay afloat. When we panic, we lose sight of this simple principle.

The symphony of swimming occurs when hand and leg movements are in chorus. If the movements are not in sync, either we tend to drown or we don’t move much ahead. Similarly, when we align our strengths to push obstacles behind and stay enthusiastic push down negative thoughts, swimming in the sea of life seems so effortless. This in a way is akin to our own ego becoming one with that of the water”… Mangesh Ghogre

I envy you. Water has and will always be my nemesis I do not fear it I despise it with a murderous passion. All my life I have felt this way, a hearty frown creeping across my face at the smallest raindrop. Water makes everything I do more difficult, yet without it nothing living can exist. I battle the snows in winter and the floods in summer. Wind brings an equally sour taste to my lips. After all this time I realize that I have been eroded by wind and rain into a better person. Formed through hardship in time to be able in all circumstances ready in all instances and grateful in all fortune. These images to me embody the ultimate expression of my deepest hatred a little piece of my being. You have captured a fragment of my soul. Thank you for that. -SEF

i personally find this very distressing, because water, especially dark water really, really scares me. but i also think it is very enchanting at the same time. great job ! +watch.

The description reminded me of when I was younger. I was 4/5 and I was fed up of learning how to swim so being quite forward I jumped in at the deep end. And drowned. I still know the person who saved me (kinda)...I didn't learn how to swim till I was 9 out of fear/not bothered-ness. Moral of the story: don't take any shortcuts.
