Vern Treat - FOLLOW YOUR BUBBLES. I recently had a conversation with a man who’s a scuba diver. He shared an interesting story. He said that when you’re down deep, you’re encircled by light. There’s no way you can tell which way is up because the water diffuses the light.

You’re also totally weightless, so you have no sense of gravity. Surrounded in an aura of light and weightless, it’s very easy to lose all sense of direction and get disoriented. You may sense that this way is up and that your air bubbles are going sideways! You may be so convinced that your perception is true that you decide to ignore your bubbles and go the way you think is up. I wouldn’t be surprised if some divers have drowned because of this.

One of the first things he was told when he was learning to scuba-dive was always to trust your bubbles, always to follow your bubbles. No matter how you feel, no matter what you think, your bubbles are always right.
