“It’s as if everything goes back and forth in the sea, but in the pool everything seems to stop. But the sea, it comes and goes. And sometimes it comes in a way that is different.
The profound philosophy came from a six-year-old boy. I was walking along the beach, and talking to people. It was very sunny, and her mother said that the rest of the family was at the inn’s swimming pool. She told me she was from the countryside, she knows the heat, but little of the rain was loving it.
She preferred to go back to the pool, but the boy tried to explain to me why he liked the sea better. It touched me, he didn’t want to keep silent, he didn’t want to talk on the phone, he wanted to see nature.
“He told me that seeing the sea, he saw that everything goes and comes back in different ways.” And he told me amazing things about his creativity, and I encouraged him.
As I have a degree in cognitive anthropology, I am curious to know what I see and this boy’s mind is so different from the children I see here.
I copied Monja Coen, to be the child too. And I’ve volunteered with children in London and Thailand. I always put myself, as if I were a child.
I also wonder why I was so taken by the Internet. And not seeing the circle of life and trapped by the phones.
So these days I’m trying to use the phone less.
I woke up several times and remembering the people I met these days. They made me be there.
As I said, the Lama would have said about the effects of a telephone, and not being present.
I met a nutritionist and she told me I should have a routine.
I know I would have a routine of walking and doing yoga in the morning. And in the afternoon I was walking and I saw two women who were taking pictures. Thus began our conversation.
The conversation talked through the photo, to Buddhism, spiritualism and gratitude for nature. It turned into a walk and a friendship began.
He walked the walk, the conversation, the stories and even watching the sea.
The young philosopher is right
“ It’s as if everything goes back and forth in the sea, but in the pool everything seems to stop. But the sea, it comes and goes. And sometimes it comes in a way that is different.”
Our friends come and go. They appear in a different way. And the new ones that have arrived and aren’t in the prison of a phone, remind us of who we are. The best is our journey.
And this little philosopher also told me that he saw these in the games, and the shells don’t even come.
Yeah, I’m glad I went down and got a philosophy professor, and he reminded me that nature makes us see life.
But this little philosopher said to me “That’s cool Jules, I didn’t even bring a phone. “”
