SAY YES TO THE SEA!
most shore desk jobs absorb and degrade the mind -
where else but at sea can you have a 4 to 5 months sabbatical- nay - hibernation every year , to blast the calcium off your pineal gland and clear your "teesra aankh" ..
life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. cruise around crystal blue waters and breathe in fresh ozone tinged salty air , while earning good money--
EARNING IN DOLLARS AND SPENDING IN RUPEES-- makes sense---right?
there is no need to be a hypocrite at sea.
you build great friendships with varying cultures . the ones you don’t like , you don’t need to see after you finish your short contract on board, so you can be yourself.
there is no need to smile at a face whose nose you feel like bloodying . ashore on a desk job you may have to tolerate such a face in front of your desk for years. to have a working relationship ashore you must fake your feelings.
you may not be a millionaire at sea-- but you will surely pay all your elite living style bills and have the time of your life while having your own style .
the deep blue sea delights the human senses, one of the reasons why sailors choose a sea career .. feeling whole and complete means feeling one with nature.
feel the wind through your hair and the fresh crisp air in your lungs, and the starry skies all around - -changing every day.
at sea you can live a simple life, without the need to imitate others.in simplicity is the secret of true strength.
real happiness is finding your lifework in the work that you love .
ashore most are prisoner of golden handcuffs- - good salary , good house etc- attached to the life style.
one of the simplest ways to brighten your mood at sea is to step into the sunlight and gaze into the blue waters or starry skies- for mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health.
trust your gut , live a natural high every day.
SAY YES!-- TO THE SEA!
respect the sea--the sea will respect you!
