Additional Associations for Dolphin:


  • Dolphin lives her life flowing with the tide. She plays in the waves that others fight against and fret about. Her intelligence is not that of conflict or control, but of play and cooperation. She works when it is time to work, but when it is not time to work, she plays and leaps through the air. Her breath is the deep breath of joy and pleasure, and it is a breath that can last far longer than the breath of fear and the need to be in control. Dolphin seeks to control little and yet is controlled by even less. We each can learn a lot of Dolphin wisdom. We, each of us, can learn a lot about joy from Dolphin. Let go. Flow. Laugh at everything. And seize every opportunity to play. Sounds like a great life. So why are we not trying to live more of that in our own lives?
