I wonder if it is because the ocean (abhdhi) is fixed in one place but the waves come and go
It is not the waves that are chanchala.
srIsUkta-rahasyArtha chandrika says that the vikArAs of ApaH are prithivi & anna. And
the vikAra of anna is kAma / sankalpa. Since, manas (mind) is sankalpa-vikalpAtmaka,
She is said to be of chanchala swabhAva.
Interestingsly, manmatha / kAmadEva is also said to be the son of Vishnu & Lakshmi.
His other names are chittaja, manOja etc which implies born from antaHkaraNa.
