Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.
This may bring incredible clarity, presence and focus. This is what is means to be a jellyfish.

Breaking Waves and Rain in the Distance

That is a good summary of my week, actually. Didn't realize it until I started writing.

It was a week of negotiations for a bathroom renovation (due to an unexpected leak - pain the...well wallet, ass, life, etc), loss of a family member, and injury of my stupid quadracept in a Cross Fit class.

Breaking waves, and rain in the distance. 

As I see it, it is still a beautiful view. 

First, we now have a contractor we think we can work with - thankfully for a decent price.

Second - the loss of a family member is sad, leaves an empty spot, but she lived a beautiful life. Through her life, she taught us how to be caring and giving. She was both to the extreme.

Third - the injury. The burning pain made me realize perhaps I jumped too hard and too fast into the Cross-Fit class. I like the class, but it is HARD. Nothing like an injury to help us set our boundaries and limits. So I will have to find other, less strenuous ways to get my workouts in. 

The waves broke, it rained. But it is still a beautiful view.
