The Place Within

No storm can touch you.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

The storm churns the surface,
While the depths of the ocean remain calm.
This is the nature of the place within.

Beautiful, peaceful, poised,
Perfect, whole, and complete.
Untouched by pain, sickness, or sin.

Immune to chaos,
Free of the ego,
One with the Divine.

You are not the churning surface.
You are not the storm.
You are the depth of the ocean.

Truth lies within.
The ocean knows she’s the ocean,
And no storm can touch her.
