The Waterline

“What goes on externally is only the tip of the iceberg in any situation. The lessons, the real changes, the opportunities to grow—these are things the body’s eyes can’t see. They remain beneath the spiritual water line, but they are there. And they represent a much more vast picture of the soul’s journey than what we can see from the perspective of our physical senses. Growth is not always about getting what we think we want. Always, it’s about becoming the men and women we have the potential to be. Loving, pure, honest, clear.” – Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love

“From birth, man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free.” – Jacques Yves Cousteau

“From birth, man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free.” – Jacques Yves Cousteau

Cast your net more deep than wide. Beneath the surface of assumptions and judgment lies compassion and kindness. The truth is below the waterline, waiting to free us to love deeper, stay longer and become who we are meant to be. Just beneath the waterline.

  3. I find amazing analogies in this post. In our quest to explore the unknown as a human race, we have launched our vessels outward, to the far reaches of space. When perhaps, we should have been directing our focus inward, just below the waterline. There is both literally and figuratively a sea of knowledge and inspiration waiting to be discovered.

    Although the surface of the water from a distance looks smooth and calm, there is adventure, turmoil, challenges, and hope just beneath. An entire world just waiting to be discovered.

    This is a beautiful and very thought provoking message. Thank you so much for sharing 😉
