What do I mean by deep thinking v shallow thinking?
Shallow is quick, superficial and efficient.
Deep is time consuming, meaningful and profitable.
Shallow is like skating, whereas deep is like scuba diving;
one scrapes the surface and stands out, while the other is silent, invisible, investigative.
One flits across the senses. The other penetrates the soul.
Shallow thinking is like a dance in quick time, elegant yet soon over leaving something ethereal: a memory, emotion or longing.
Deep thinking takes time. The body and mind rest while the heart contemplates life.
GOD is in the deep places. He’s in the speck of cloud far away, He’s in the hurricane and the eye of the storm. And He’s at the bottom of the sea where no-one goes, no one sees, unless we become like Him.
GOD is everywhere, so He’s in the shallow as well as the deep. But in the deep we have limitless time.
And time makes all the difference.
