"No Water, No Life, No Blue, No Green" ~ Sylvia Earle
Sylvia Earle is an inspiring female oceanographer, and fellow explorer in The Explorers Club. Since meeting her in 2010 at UCSB Campbell Hall during an environmental lecture series, her mission in life has helped me become motivated and crystal clear in my own life's purpose. Sylvia's "Mission Blue" is rooted in her above statement, that without water, we would have no life on our precious planet. Sharing worldwide, she believes that, "The dynamism and vitality of all life on Earth owes itself to the ocean... As we commit ourselves today to respect planet Earth, let's remember that without blue, there is no green."
“A sense of wonder, a sense of light, a sense of humility in this life.”
As one travels across the oceans, rivers, countries, and mountains… I’m always taken back to the magical state that lies beneath the blue, where another world unfamiliar to me is living a life that rings true.
Imagine your body, heart, mind, and soul duplicating our Earth's energies, communication channels, and pulsating magnetic field? In science, this rings true. As a child, we remarkably match our planet's water to body mass ratio, the 71% to 29%, and as we get older we start losing the water factor of this phenomenon.
"Life moves us like the ocean waves, closer and nearer, yet sometimes past the distant horizon... always stirring us towards our desire for a deeper connection, alas... the depth of the sea is found in thee." ~ Dolphingirl
We enter into this world through a breath from heaven, with a sense of wonder and eyes of childlike curiosity. Yet, somewhere along the way, we often lose our innocence, trusting abilities, and naive playfulness. Even our sense of home.
