We often swim in oceans,
Hoping to find one that moves our current
Just in the right direction
Hoping to find one that always sees us with loving eyes
And helps us to see ourselves in greater ways
Love is this mutual support
That reminds us that We are love
And helps us to express this exquisite energy
To channel this vast ocean of delight
Into feelings that can be received
by open arms.
You now both swim together
Feeling held in love’s bay.
You are amongst the lucky ones
Whom have met their soulmate
in just the right conditions
for sharing your lives
by uniting in this holy matrimony.
May you explore the oceans of love
Deepening your commitment
By diving many leagues down
To dwell in the stillness of what is infinite
By becoming the essence of compassion
When we truly understand another,
We receive them, fully
Just as the ocean receives what swims in it
Receive then, receive with open arms
And remain receptive, like the water
That always makes space for change.
Be sturdy, like the land
That is like an eternal vase
Holding the energy of acceptance.
Like the sun
That warms us even in the winter.
And remain playful in your hearts
As you swim together in the oceans of love
