Deep Calls unto Deep

A perspective I have obtained from editing the 11th book due out Sept. Titled "Wisdom of the Desert"
Deep Calls unto Deep
When you undertake the search for what is not within your grasp, what urges you forward? Will you know when you feel it, when you hear it, or will you know it when you see it?
When you have a burden; and you long to share this, unless you prick it with a dart of love, it will erupt into a wash out, neither satisfying your intent nor the recipient’s thirst. Thus not only are you both longing, more importantly neither has succumbed to the call of;
“deep calls unto deep.”
To be drowned, and to die of thirst, are deaths widely different; yet water is the cause of both; abundance destroys in one case, and want in the other. So here the fullness of grace stills the activity of self; and therefore it is of the utmost importance to remain as silent as possible and listen with the ear of your heart.
When you search, do you have the correct tools; not the “right tools,” the correct tools. You indeed must hear that still and small voice, which reminds us all to come in and take a rest, to refresh and reconnect ourselves; not “reconnect with ourselves.”
Once there, what shall you do? What shall you satisfy first? The answer once again is wait, for “deep calls unto deep.” This inward “knowing,” is the voice that you need to hear and tune out all others. It is the same as how a mother, who can so quickly identify her newborn’s cry over the myriad of others; for “deep calls unto deep.”
When you are there, you will know. This is because your five sense will not render their support, nor will your recollection and a quick wit, be capable to survey the area and relay understanding. Note: as you build your ladder of ascension, the higher you build, just as deep must the base be. You cannot ascend when you have not dug deep within yourself clearing the space for a strong footing.
Remember: Deep calls unto deep! The source is equal to the means by which the ends are alike.
