The word nautílos literally means “sailor”, as paper nautiluses were thought to use two of their arms as sails. (Wikipedia.org)
Inspired by the enigmatic nautilus, I feel like a soul sailor adrift on an impetuous sea, one time a raging wall of waves, another time a calm oasis. It’s a noble life, these ups and downs, ins and outs.
As the nautilus matures the shell creates new and larger chambers to accommodate its growth, beginning with four and reaching up to thirty or more chambers as an adult. Like the nautilus, we create many chambers in our life journey, coming full circle again and again and again. We follow our innate call to return to the genes of our souls, where we become at last who we always were. Happy travels to us all.

What an apt symbol for this process of living!
