Swimming with Baby Whale & Mom in an Ocean of Love…

by Joe Noonan on April 10, 2013

I’m on the Big Island of Hawaii, preparing to lead a custom dolphin retreat for a family from the US. They’re arriving in a few days, and today i’m out for a swim in the ocean.

I get a surprise… a BIG surprise!

There’s a baby whale swimming towards me!

I stop moving and hold very, very still…

The whale comes closer…

My heart is beating like a drum, i’m filled with awe and am very humbled… (this baby is a lot bigger than me!)

A deep sense of peace fills me… i feel myself in another realm, a magical dimension… there’s just the baby whale and i, floating in a sea of wonder…

Then something appears, coming out of the deep blue…

It startles me out of my reverie… its mom, coming up for air (you can see the video jerk when she pops into sight). She slowly surfaces next to the baby and they move slowly away…

I am left floating on the ocean’s surface; tingling all over, a mix of joy, adrenaline and exuberance…

Love, humility, reverence, amazement, appreciation… feelings flow through me in waves.

Then they come back! Mom and baby lift their tails together and glide down into the ocean blue, settling deep below…

As babies and children, we are one with everything around us. We happily share our ice cream with the family dog, we feed the cat from our own bowl, we gleefully watch the housefly get a meal from our sticky fingers… As children, we recognize all creatures as part of our family. This knowingness feels natural; feels familiar, feels like the grace of Home…

Floating here, with the whales resting below, i feel that Oneness, the feeling of family… While the mind counts ‘one’ human and ‘two’ whales, the heart sees three souls, all one family…

Thank you Snatam Kaur, your music so sweetly honors the grace of these experiences…

(I’m leading a few select whale retreats to Hawaii and Maui the winter of 2013/2014. For more info, check out our website)
