I’ve been reading this amazing book – The Wave, by Susan Casey. I’m gripped! It’s research into understanding ocean waves, from regular moon pulling currents, to random, ship-splitting, gargantuan rogue waves. And about how surfers use and interact with the ocean, especially now there’s a $500,000.00 price tag out there from Billabong (world’s no. 1 surf brand) for the first person (or nutter!) to surf a 100ft wave.
What’s really drawing me about the book is the detail of the culture of the world’s surfing elite. The passion involved, the commitment, the risks, the relationships, the trust and the victory when a new and mighty wave is conquered; and overriding all of this a soul-centred respect for a power greater than ourselves.
I see parallels of this tribe mirrored in all walks of life – business, sport, science, faith, family, nature. A confirmation that passion drives us, wipe-outs happen, persistence brings success, and connection to your purpose adds something ‘other-worldly’ to your journey of success.
Everything is energy!
