  1. I got taken aback by this one because at first glance it looked like the fish was swimming into a storm. Now I see that the storm is above it, and the fish is below in peaceful waters. I was wondering though, whether diving underneath the storm is actually hiding from it, denying its existence. Sometimes (in life) you need to face whatever storm there is with the aim of rising ABOVE it. There, above the storm, there is not only peace but also light.

    • Thank you for this perspective Elizabeth. We are often told to rise about something … when in fact this can also be a way to escape from feeling the discomfort and pain associated with the storm.
      The analogy of the calm beneath the waves come from both Buddhism and Emotional Intelligence.
      Beneath the waves of emotions is the constant peace within us all.
      The storm is our reaction to an external situation.
      The peace is always within us.
      I also like the idea that the light is always emanating inside of us. There is no above and below.
      Thank you!
