Metaphors and parables

A Christian Science friend and I were talking about metaphors that help us deal with the challenges we all face—challenges from the small negative ripples in thought to the crashing waves of discord that would try to engulf and undermine individuals and the world.

He mentioned how on ocean trips, he is able to enjoy every moment of riding over the waves. He rejoices in it and feels a great sense of resiliency and buoyancy. And this provides him with a metaphor—a metaphor that helps him as he rides over the waves that appear in his life.

We'd love to hear from you!
