So much of what we give value to in this world is not found on the surface, but buried deep beneath us. Gemstones, oil, freshwater and precious metals must all be sought out from the depths. And knowing this, we still often fail to see what is hidden deep within each other. We seek very little past the surface. And yes it takes effort and patience to reach the depths. But this it seems is nature’s way of teaching us that what we value most is formed on the inside and rewarded to those willing to seek it out of the depths.
