Pearls of Wisdom
The Buoyancy of an Iceberg
It can weigh many tons, but yet floats and does not sink; an iceberg is a floating chunk of ice meandering around the earth’s oceans. Sailors would desperately set lookouts for icebergs; they deemed them deadly, the Titanic lies at the bottom of the ocean because it must have hit one on its voyage.
One element of an iceberg is that it’s broken from a larger piece, it once belonged to something greater, and because of warmer weather patterns it fell from its mother piece and floated away, Millions, perhaps billions of years from now it will rejoin its lost part, somewhere, somehow.
An iceberg is also an analogy of our mind, part of the iceberg is above water but as much as 90% is below the water, hidden from view, most our or mind, the unconscious is hidden from us as well, our fears and anxieties get pushed deep under the surface, where we “think” they are safe.
1. Have you ever thought you were going to “fall” and something stopped you from hitting rock bottom?
2. What do you keep below your surface?
3. An Iceberg will not last; it will disappear over time, where does it go? Where will you go when you disappear? Will you return to “something”
