To dive into deep waters takes strength, skill, daring. It may be the depths of a river or clear mountain lake or the ocean itself. The diver must know his waters as he knows his own breath. She must know her body as well as she knows her mind. The diver leaps into the deeps like the singer sings, the artist creates, the mother tends, because there is a burning urge within to do this one thing; to do it well.

There are also those who feel the urgent need to dive into the depths of the human soul, the world soul, the soul of the universe. Taking their mind and heart into their hands, they leap into the unknown and never return as they were before.
