DISCOVERING NEW DIMENSIONS
The unconscious mind holds as many secrets as the ocean depths, which can be revealed to one who enquires
"Uncovering a new dimension of life"
There exist vast oceans of reality of which we remain almost entirely unconscious and yet can sometimes glimpse with peripheral or dimmed vision. To the curious this first foggy awareness triggers excitement and wonder, and even a hint that we could get closer if we surrendered the safety of our secure little ego.
A GLASS BOTTOMED BOAT REVEALS UNDERSEA WONDERS

Inquisitiveness keeps us prepared for the unannounced calls of fate
At times, when not subject to the pressure of wants and needs, we are moved in certain ways to take definite creative action on our own account.
One pressing call to action is curiosity – we tend to be strongly drawn to keep abreast of what is around us. What may well have originated as an important survival strategy has evolved into a willing readiness to maintain touch with the stream of everyday and seemingly inconsequential affairs.
The glass bottomed boat has been made by a person who wants to look deeper into things, below the surface. By this they ensure that they are alert to each and every ramification of experience.
The summon of our destiny is rarely a bugle or fanfare; it is often a low, unannounced whisper. Each moment has its particular unique qualities and potentialities, which would escape the notice of a less active observer, yet will contain subtle clues to the revelation of new openings.
Alert curiosity makes it becomes possible to notice what comes along, and capitalise fully upon it – with the knowledge that all it takes to find opportunity is to look for it. We grasp fortune unreservedly and take full advantage of unexpected potentials of the moment in hand. Indecisiveness – an inability to strike quick and true – is poor excuse for a life half-lived.
Yet some of these occurrences are really of no concern to us and we are well advised to hold a position of poise. Anyway, simply observing with an objective inactivity has real value.
Potency begets more potency – success breeds success and optimism is the seed whose fruit is inevitably joy. So the formula for a rich and interesting life journey is to strike out wherever we see possibilities to claim a greater degree of experience and knowledge.
