Pema Chodron and the reason surf mats work so well

I was reading thru a bit of poetry and came across a passage that I thought  I should share with you all.

First we need to borrow some beautiful words from Tibetan meditation teacher Pema Chodron

"happiness lies in being able to relax with our true condition, which is basically fleeting, dynamic, fluid, not in any way solid, not in any way permanent. It's transient by nature."

Now that we have been inspired let's replace the word "happiness" with "the reason surf mats work so well".

It's a switch-a-roo I do quite a bit in real life

So now we have

The reason surf mats work so well lies in their being able to relax with their true condition, which is basically fleeting, dynamic, fluid, not in any way solid, not in any way permanent. It's transient by nature.

Thank you Pema!


The fleeting, dynamic, fluid, not in any way solid thing is working out just fine!

Mat shot from maybe two summers ago, trying to come up with a shot that shows the inflation level I like. Impossible! That and it changes day to day and wave to wave. Variable inflation is a beautiful thing.

Inflation level? Always on the move!
