Stepping into the waves at the sea
A happy dialogue emerges
Calming down
Listening to the sound of the sea
Listening to your own breath
Listening to the voice of your heart
Let the sea
Take you to face yourself
Take you to see yourself
So you open your eyes
Looking to the endless sea
Look infinitely possible

With the waves
Take the pace slowly
Let the mind
Sink step by step
Down step by step
Falling in the arms of the sea
Embracing the inner ones
Following the sea with you
Following the sea to breathe
Let our life runs its own course
Coming and going like ocean waves

Let the sea
Take you to face yourself
Opening the heart
To engage the deepest dialogue
