#30 Be Grateful for The Ocean


#30 The Ocean

What an amazing topic today!!! I am so excited about this. I love the oceans and the fantastic life that unveils itself while you take a dive into it. So full of life and amazing creaturesūüėÄ

Have you ever taken time to go out in the Ocean snorkel around and discover the vivid beauty we have down in the deep? You would be amazed. I have seen so many fantastic creatures that I discover for the first time. When I was a kid and went to the Ocean I could spend hours just looking down into the water and see what was going on.

Being close to a Ocean gives you a great amount of spiritual feeling. You feel something great inside of you, like there is something a certain presence thereūüėÄ

Why should we be grateful for the Ocean?

  • It is blue.
  • It is full of life.
  • It keeps us alive.
  • It creates wind and weather.
  • It is beautiful.
  • It is not fully discovered.
  • It has the ability to amaze you.
  • It feeds us.
  • It gives us energy.
  • It gives us rain.
  • You can swim in it.
  • You can travel through it.
  • You can discover it.


  • You can float in it.
  • You can¬†scuba dive¬†in it.
  • You can play in it.
  • You can fish in it.
  • It can destroy everything.
  • For its tides.
  • For its islands.
  • For its abundance.
  • For the coasts that it surround.
  • For the salt in it.
  • For its currents.
  • For the golf stream who warms up Norway during the winter.
  • For its amazing waves.
  • For the deeps.
  • For the beaches it has created.
  • For the stunning views it has made through millions of years.
  • For that it covers around 75% of the earth. Is this a coincidence that our body is made up of nearly the same amount of water as our planet consists of?

I could go on for decades with wonders of the ocean. It has such an abundance that it is very hard to grasp.

Have you ever walked on the beach and had the waves hit your legs. What an amazing feeling. I think a lot of people really don’t appreciate how amazing the Ocean is until we see someone discover it for the first time in their life’sūüôā

I were luck to bring my wife to the Ocean and see her excitement when she walked, felt and touched the Ocean for the first time in her life. I remember she said it tastes saltyūüôā I got so excited about it when I saw her excitement about it and I understood how lucky I were to grow up so close to it.

What would happened if the Ocean disappeared today?

Think about it if our Ocean dried up today we would not be alive. We simply can’t be without it. I found since I now live at the heart of North America how easy it is to forget how lucky we are to be alive because of the Wonderful Oceans spanning around our beautiful planet. Planet Earth is often called the Blue planetūüôā

So be grateful for our fantastic and powerful Ocean which have the power over our life and death.

Rotating series of maps showing alternate divisions of the oceans

Maps exhibiting the world’s oceanic waters. A continuous body of water encircling the¬†Earth, the¬†world (global) ocean¬†is divided into a number of principal areas. Five oceanic divisions are usually recognized:Pacific,¬†Atlantic,¬†Indian,¬†Arctic, and¬†Southern; the last two listed are sometimes consolidated into the first three.

An¬†ocean¬†(from¬†Greek¬†ŠĹ®őļőĶőĪőĹŠĹłŌā, “okeanos”¬†Oceanus[1]) is a major body of¬†saline water, and a principal component of the¬†hydrosphere. Approximately 71% of the¬†Earth‘s¬†surface¬†(~3.6 x 10¬†8¬†km¬†2) is covered by ocean, a¬†continuous body of water¬†that is customarily divided into several principal oceans and smaller¬†seas.

More than half of this area is over 3,000 metres (9,800¬†ft) deep. Average oceanic¬†salinity¬†is around 35¬†parts per thousand¬†(‚Äį) (3.5%), and nearly all seawater has a salinity in the range of 30 to 38 ‚Äį. Scientists estimate that 230,000 marine¬†species¬†are currently known, but the total could be up to 10 times that number.[2]

 

Though generally described as several ‘separate’ oceans, these waters comprise one global, interconnected body of salt water sometimes referred to as the¬†World Ocean¬†or global ocean.[3][4]¬†This concept of a continuous body of water with relatively free interchange among its parts is of fundamental importance to¬†oceanography.[5]

 

The major oceanic divisions are defined in part by the continents, various archipelagos, and other criteria. These divisions are (in descending order of size):

The Pacific and Atlantic may be further subdivided by the equator into northern and southern portions. Smaller regions of the oceans are called seas, gulfs, bays, straits and other names.

Geologically, an ocean is an area of¬†oceanic crust¬†covered by water. Oceanic crust is the thin layer of solidified volcanicbasalt¬†that covers the Earth’s¬†mantle.¬†Continental crust¬†is thicker but less dense. From this perspective, the earth has three oceans: the World Ocean, the¬†Caspian Sea[citation needed], and¬†Black Sea. The latter two were formed by the collision of¬†Cimmeria¬†with¬†Laurasia. The¬†Mediterranean Sea¬†is at times a discrete ocean, because¬†tectonic plate movement¬†has repeatedly broken its connection to the World Ocean through the¬†Strait of Gibraltar. The Black Sea is connected to the Mediterranean through the¬†Bosporus, but the Bosporus is a natural¬†canal¬†cut through continental rock some 7,000 years ago, rather than a piece of oceanic sea floor like the Strait of Gibraltar.

Despite their names, smaller landlocked bodies of saltwater that are not connected with the World Ocean, such as theAral Sea, are actually salt lakes.

“A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching.” -Sivanda
