Getting Out Of The Swimming Pool!!!!

This are excerpts from a mail that came from a very good friend.
A wise friend.
A friend that listens and cares.
A friend that I grateful to have.
Thanks Amalia.

*****************
"Jumping in the swimming pool is just not enough."

Reading your last post... 
and remembering our conversation on the beach in Setubal...

Life... water... jump...

You brought me a new perspective on life...
or maybe it wasn´t new for me, it was there inside me, but it wasn´t materialized yet...

I always had a strong connection with water. 
I think about my soul in terms of water. 
At first I was identifying myself with the Danube, then it was the sea, the Black Sea, and now I am becoming the Ocean...

And besides this spiritual connection with the water, there is the physical connection, when my body is yearning for the water´s touch, for swimming, for that feeling of being lighter , for that feeling of freedom...

And when I´m touch with water, it´s also my soul that is being touched... it´s like... what comes around goes around...

...soul ...water ...body   ...   body... water... soul...

But where do I want to get with all this...
You are talking about swimming pool...

I see this like... 
You created your own world, which is the swimming pool...
and you keep on jumping in your own world, you want to stay inside and learn how to swim... 
I think you already know how to swim in your own swimming pool...
don´t you think that it´s time to get out and throw yourself in the Ocean...

Waters are connected, 
the river goes into the sea, 
and the sea goes in to the ocean, 
they are in a permanent connection, 
from the bottom of the ocean you can reach the mint of the river, 
and then go back...

And it´s good to have your own world, 
everybody has it, 
but you need to be connected with all that the real world can offer.

You need to let your world interact with other people´s world, 
you don´t have to drag people into your swimming pool...

And you know that water has this property to purify itself... 
a swimming pool can´t do that... 
a swimming pool has to be emptied, cleaned and then refilled with fresh water... 
but how many times a soul can take this...
the true feeling of transformation is when the soul is purifying itself... 
like a natural phenomenon... 
just like the ocean´s waters.

So if u are searching for something, whatever that might be... 
don´t keep on swimming in your swimming pool, 
you already know how to swim, 
go and swim into the ocean... 

endless possibilities are floating there...

So, what do you say ?

*******************
I say I think you got it right...
I say I don't really know where the Ocean is...
I say I want to go there...
I say I will find my way out of my swimming pool...
I say Thanks...
I say Thanks a lot!




I have to choose a great song, and David Cook just rocked in this version of "The World I Know" originally by Collective Soul.
Here you have the url of the video.

Has our conscience shown?
Has the sweet breeze blown?
Has all the kindness gone?
Hope still lingers on.
I drink myself of newfound pity
Sitting alone in new york city
And I don't know why.

Are we listening to hyms of offering?
Have we eyes to see that love is gathering?
All the words that Ive been reading
Have now started the act of bleeding into one.

So I walk up on high
And I step to the edge
To see my world below.
And I laugh at myself
As the years roll down.
cause its the world I know.
Its the world I know.
