Deep Dive

“Tell me somethin', girl Are you happy in this modern world? Or do you need more? Is there somethin' else you're searchin' for?” From A Star Is Born

People ask if you have a career, if you’re married, if you have children, where you were born. It’s like there is a checklist to go through to get to know someone. What if when we meet for the first time, we ask “are you happy” or “what fulfills you” or “when you close your eyes at night where do you go?” We mistakenly think that discussing status will lead us to know each other. I would rather you tell me the song that plays in your heart instead of what your doctoral thesis was about. I want to know what makes you cry – in a good and a bad way. I want to know what it feels like to walk in your shoes; then I feel that I have some insight into who you are.

I was married to someone for 17 years who knew where I worked, what I did in my job, how much money I made and what time I woke up in the morning. At the end of the marriage, he was surprised to learn that I wrote poetry, that the little child inside of me cringed in the corner most days from insecurity and cried herself to sleep at night. He didn’t even know that my favorite color was purple and my favorite song was Imagine. How can we truly understand each other if we only stay on the surface? How can we even attempt to create a world that works for us all if we don’t know anything more than what language we speak?

Angels, what do we need to know about taking a deeper dive both inside and outside of ourselves to come more into unity with each other?

Dear Ones, there are some people who have never stood on the end of a diving board and taken that leap into the water. Yet there are those who can swim out to the deep end with no problem and submerge. What we are saying is that not everyone has the same method to reach the same goal. Yes, it is important to go to the heart of who and what you are but you don’t have to take that high dive. You can go the way of ease and grace and allow yourself to move at your own pace. The important thing is to make progress. The world did not get into the shape it is in overnight and it will not be brought to a better state overnight. Leaping is not always the answer. Live by example. Show others what is important to you through your actions. If peace is important, be peaceful. If love is important, be loving. Hold meaningful conversations that show what is in your heart. However, it is not your job to push anyone else into the pool. Simply be who you are and allow others to be who they are without judgment and criticism. Examine your motives always. Do you want to “dive in” to show your skills or to show off? We encourage you, Dear Ones, to enjoy the moments as you wade further into the pool and discover together how shallow or deep you might go in your conversation. A peaceful warrior knows that slow and steady wins the race.

Thank you Angels. I will keep swimming along. I love you.
