Scuba Diving with SHARKS!! Bassas Da India – Sailing SV Delos Ep. 100

Scuba Diving with SHARKS!! Bassas Da India – Sailing SV Delos Ep. 100


[MUSIC – ONETOX, “RAMUKANJI”] Previously on Delos,
we explored some of Madagascar’s
amazing wildlife, check out a sweet waterfall,
and won first place in the Nosey Be Regatta. [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] Can’t believe we’re
leaving Nosey Be! Yeah, man. Awesome place, man. I’m going to miss it so much. OK, I’ll see you
in South Africa! Have a good trip! [MUSIC PLAYING] Think South Africa’s
going to be? Really interesting
sail coming up, too. It’s not just you’re typical
get in the trade winds and go. It’s a lot of currents– A lot of variables. We’re kind of, like, the very
north-west tip of Madagascar. And we want to get to the first
port in South Africa, which is Richard’s Bay. And there’s basically two
options that you have. So we’re trying to figure
out which route is best. The cool thing for us
about the Southern routes is right about in here
is a little place called Bassas da India, which is
just this tiny, little lagoon. No land, but it’s just in
the middle of the Mozambique Channel. And if the weather is
calm, apparently it’s supposed to be awesome,
incredible snorkeling and diving stuff. We’ve heard legends
of Bassas da India, stories of massive sharks,
and incredible diving. It’s an old underwater
volcano, right in the middle of the Mozambique Channel. To be able to stop here
and dive would definitely make this whole passage– if
the weather was good, of course. We’ve decided to stick with
that– to stick with closer to the coast of Madagascar. [MUSIC PLAYING] So it’s 11 o’clock
in the morning, and we’re having this
great downwind sail, which is pretty exciting. I didn’t think we were going
to have any downwind sailing on this trip, so life is good. The vanilla drying even
more, so we can probably soak it in our rum soon. Yeah, it’s cruising along
for like five knots. 14 knots of grease
from the back. And the sun is shining. [MUSIC PLAYING] So, well, I’m
keeping a watch out. Think Brady is cooking up a
feast of lunch downstairs. Well, I’m making
some split-pea soup. So we have like
200 cans of peas. [MUSIC PLAYING] I have no fucking
idea what it is. It’s tripping me out. For the past few minutes, we’ve
been sailing through something I’d never seen before. The ocean was filled with a
half-meter wide blue blinking circles. And they were moving, too–
not quite as fast as Delos– but still moving. Shame the light
wasn’t good enough for the camera to see it. We had no idea
what this could be. We guessed everything from
bioluminescent jellyfish, deep-sea squid, or some
unknown alien creature. So if there are any marine
biologists out there, we have never seen
anything like this before. They’re moving. Yeah, they’re moving. Yeah. And they’re like maybe
a half of a meter– glowing circles just blinking. What can this be? Like are not Just
tripping at that. This was our first night out,
let me show you where we’re at. Pretty soon we’re going to
start our turn headed south. So, it’s 4 o’clock
in the morning. I’m actually really,
really tired. So I always start every
morning with a nice fresh, cup of Delos kombucha. Sea-hab– cleanse the liver. Kombucha instead of rum. Yeah. [MUSIC – RYAN KIDWELL, “STEPPING
OUT] I’m moving up. I’m stepping out
of my comfort zone. I’m moving on with– So, this is something
we do a lot on passage– is we get on this
weather net stat. Kind of a group of cruisers get
together and talk over the SSB, just to give
position and safety. And it’s the first time
we’ve done it in a long time. But it’s really
cool, because all of the boats heading
to South Africa left Madagascar at
about the same time. See, you get to keep
up with the progress, and everybody is taking
different routes. This is another boat
that’s on the Mozambique side of the current. And they just– they’re
hitting southwestern, they’re hitting that
front that’s coming up. And they just got a
tear in their main. Sounds like the second
tear of the passage. Fuck. 1: 00 in the morning. I’ve been listening to
Richard Branson’s book– his autobiography,
Losing My Virginity. Such a crazy, inspiring
dude– taking hot-air balloons all the way
around the world. He makes sailing
around the world look like fucking nothing. Sleep all right? Yeah, I was just really
deep asleep– like dreaming and then [INAUDIBLE]. I was– I went to
make a cup of coffee, and I must have clicked standby. Check this out– Good thing
we’re not near anything. [LAUGHTER] You just might’ve been so tired. Yeah, I must’ve
just hit standby, and the boat automatically just
started turning in a circle. 4: 00 AM. What’s going on? Nothing has changed. So, not much. Usually, when I come on
watch the first few minutes, I just sit here, zone out for a
while, try to get my bearings, check the course– radar–
make sure we’re not going to hit anything. Then I go make myself
a nice cup of coffee. I also decided to give myself
a little 4:00 AM snack. So, now it’s time to sit,
chill, and enjoy this. And this is why I love doing
the 4:00-7:00 watch so much. 7 o’clock in the morning. It’s kind of
frustrating, because we haven’t done any– we’ve done a
hundred miles of– no– I don’t even know how to speak. I’m tired. It’s 7 o’clock in the
morning, I had a shit night, I had to tack a bunch. I come out here, and I
stand and have a look out, and I see two
fucking shark fins. Never seen that’ before. So bummed I didn’t grab
the camera fast enough. Getting further south for sure. How was your sleeping? [GRUNTING] Where is our wind? We have no wind. It’s flat. It’s hot. [GROANING] Sails are useless now. And it’s shower time. Perfect conditions
for an outdoor bath. It’s 12:06, and
we got some wind! Jib coming out! [MUSIC PLAYING] I got tired of reading, though. So I decided to listen
to my phone for a while. It’s sometime in the
afternoon– probably sometime around dinnertime. So I’m cooking dinner. I have some diced, grilled–
lightly grilled zebu filet. Beautiful sunset, huh? Pretty sweet, huh? Oh! Set up the table? It’s zebu filet medallions. Yum! Real good, brother. So I just downloaded the
weather, again, for today. Because we need to
have less than 10 knots wind if we’re going to stop
here in Bassas da India. So it looks pretty good, here. No wind. The only problem is right now
we’re about 22 miles away. So that puts us in
right at sundown. Say we get to within
eight miles and heave to. So I think we’re
doing pretty good. Our speed is 0.5
knots to 0.7 knots, so we’re not really
going anywhere. So we’re 15 miles from the reef. So, no matter what happens,
we shouldn’t have to reef, but we’ll keep a watch
out for it tonight. So, time to chill. All as well. [MUSIC PLAYING] After a pretty roll-y
shitty night hove to, the sun is finally coming up. And light should be
good enough to be able to see the reef
once we get close. So hopefully it will stay calm,
and we’ll go do some diving. So we just [INAUDIBLE] in the
[? Genoa. ?] And we’re here. So it’s fantastic. We’re going to motor
a right towards where we see the water breaking on the
reef, and see if we can anchor. Almost down to 15 now. What do you say, go for it? Yeah, go for it. OK, dropping. [MUSIC PLAYING] We have Africa and
Madagascar, and we’re just in the middle of the
Mozambique Channel. Not many people get to dive
here in Bassas da India. So I’m really stoked. See you in 40 minutes. Here we go! [MUSIC PLAYING] [LAUGHING] Ah, that’s a bit scary. OK, I didn’t get the
camera out fast enough. But the fender that we have
floating behind the boat just got [MUTED]-ing
attacked by a shark. That really scared me, in a way. It really went up– it
was like– probably three meters long. I couldn’t see what
it was, but yeah. I just hope the guys are OK. [SCREAMING UNDERWATER] [MUSIC PLAYING] [CHEERING] What the fuck! [SCREAMING] Brady was over
there, and I look up. And I lost my shit,
because there’s a massive school of
hammerheads swimming over us. And I was like, ah! I’ve never, ever fucking
seen that before. It was amazing. So many sharks! Shark, shark, shark, shark! And then I sit here,
minding my own business, a shark attacking there! [LAUGHING] So what’s the plan? Going to do it this side. And I’ll have a safety
sausage on the end of 40 meters of fishing line. That way Brian can
follow us in the boat. Sounds like a foolproof plan. This is one of the things
I love about diving– that nervous excited feeling
that fills your whole body, as you’re about to take
that last step off the boat into the dark blue ocean. But as soon as you
take that first breath, descending into this new world,
everything just melts away. And your present
right here, right now. [MUSIC PLAYING] How was that? It was sweet, man. It was a really nice drift. Just having the boat–
I could see you guys the whole time– see your
bubbles the whole time. And the sausage I just
did circles around you. Did you almost run
over the sausage? Yeah. I got pretty close one time. Yeah, because I heard
[WHIRRING NOISE] I was like, oh, fuck! Yeah, I had to put it in
reverse and reverse away. So we’ve motored the
other side of the atoll. And it’s a lot calmer
over here, except there is like a big, southerly or
southeasterly swell, so there are waves breaking on
the reef on this side. But the boat’s a
lot more stable. So, me and the Braids are going
to go in for one last dive this afternoon, pop
down, and check it out. The boys just went down. I can still see their bubbles. But right as they jumped in
there was a big shark that came up and shook them out. It’s a bit freaky. I think it was just a white
tip, so we should be OK. [SCUBA BREATHING] [MUSIC PLAYING] [BUBBLES] [SCUBA BREATHING] There’s absolutely nothing
like the experience of diving into the open ocean with sharks. It’s exhilarating and
humbling at the same time. They’re just so
powerful and graceful. Complete masters
of their domain. Bassas da India is
really isolated, with hundreds of miles
of open ocean separating from mainland Africa
and Madagascar. The sharks here rarely,
if ever, see divers. Over the years, we’ve
dove with lots of sharks– enough to recognize
their behavior. And these guys were
nothing more than curious. So we just hung
out on the bottom, and let them circle
us– not making any sudden or
threatening movements. [BUBBLES] [SCUBA BREATHING] [MUSIC PLAYING] After a while they became
bored and wandered off. Just in time for us to ascend
to Delos and do our safety stop. Holy shit! [LAUGHING] That was a cool dive! Massive grace. About six or 10 white tips. It’s a little bit more
visibility here, isn’t it? I popped a blood
vessel in my nose. Oh, no. Yeah, that was a
very successful stop. Random place in the middle
of the Mozambique Channel. Filled with fucking sharks. Hey, grouper. [ANCHOR REELING] Whoa, look at that guy. Later, sharkies. What do you say we
head for South Africa? Yeah. Off to Richard’s Bay, huh? Good plan, huh? Africa! [SINGING] He keeps trying to land
on top of Buddha’s head. [LAUGHING] He’s found a place. Finally. He picked the worst place ever. Why not land on the
solar panel, you douche. Aw, poor dude. Is that better? Yeah. That’s pretty good. He seems pretty happy. So it’s 7 o’clock
in the morning. So the wind has come up
to about 25 apparent, and big waves are
forming and stuff, so it’s not as
comfortable at all. But that’s the ocean, huh? Brady is double-checking
the weather and seeing that nothing has
come up– like nothing crazy. So it’s showing we’re
just on the edge. Just on the edge of this massive
system that’s coming across– [BOAT SLAMMING] Oh! Coming across the bottom
of South Africa now. And it’s spinning this way. And it’s creating these
southeasterlies for us up here. So, hopefully within
the next 24 hours, it should start to
lighten up a bit and tend a bit more
out of the east. [MUSIC PLAYING] [CREAKING] Too much slamming after
Brady’s cabin time– [LAUGHTER] Lay on the floor, huh? Yeah, then I get launched–
like– two meters in the air and then slammed back down. So it’s about 6
o’clock in the morning. It looks like we have
about a little bit more than one day left, so
we should be there tomorrow, I guess, which is very exciting. Now I’m going to have a cup
of tea, because it’s freezing. We’re sitting with
blankets and jackets here. So strange. We traveled over 1,500
nautical miles south. And as we left the tropics
for the colder waters of South Africa, the change was huge. And I actually felt
pretty cold– something I hadn’t felt in years. How’s it going? Good morning! It’s going fantastic. It’s a bit more
comfortable than yesterday. That’s for sure. The wind back to a
little bit to the east and dropped to like 15 knots. So we’ve got full sail out. We’re doing between six knots
and eight knots all the time. Beautiful day. [MUSIC PLAYING] Rum for our last sundown-er at
sea for this beautiful passage. Isn’t that crazy? Tomorrow we’ll be on
the continent of Africa. What the fuck! That is crazy. [MUSIC PLAYING] Well, it’s the last night of
our passage to Richard’s Bay, and I got to say it’s actually
been one of my favorites. We had really good weather, and
the sailing, for most of it, was just beautiful–
no squalls at all and I’m actually a little
bit sad to have it end. It’s just been so chill. But South Africa is
only like 60 miles away now, so we should be there
tomorrow– maybe just before noon. And we’re really looking
forward to that as well. I think it’s got a lot of
cool things to offer for us. Good night for now. See you in the morning. Sun is just coming up on our–
I don’t know– 11th or 10th day at sea. And we got a sight of land. Africa! Yeah, it’s a beautiful morning. Full breach. He came out all the
way out of the water. See the big splash over there? Yeah. Woo! Did you see that, Bri? How awesome was that? That was cool. Welcome to South Africa. Breaching humpbacks. Next stop on Delos, we
shake into South Africa, see some African wildlife,
and get hit by 50-knot winds. [WIND BLOWING] [LAUGHTER] First thing in the morning. [LAUGHTER] That’s a wrap! [LAUGHTER] [MUSIC PLAYING] Like it? I like it a lot! Mum beans! You’re a mum bean. Garlic mum bean. Mum-umbilical. Mum-bean– [LAUGHTER] Headphones are way
too big for it. [LAUGHTER] He even looks like you. Does he? OK!

  1. Wow, I NEVER EVER thought we would make 100 episodes over the past few years!!! It's absolutely mind boggling! Even more crazy is we've accumulated nearly 19 terabytes of raw footage…… Now that is crazy! You guys are soooo awesome for sticking with us through the thick and thin, the fair winds and the stormy seas. What a frickin' ride! And it wouldn't have been possible without your support. To celebrate I'm working on a little special something that I think you will like very much. Does anyone wanna try and guess what it is? Big Love from South Africa! Brian, Karin, and Brady

  2. Been watching for years, and loved every minute. Forgive the belated congratulations on your 100th episode, and thanks for all the knowledge, entertainment, highs and lows you've shared over the years… I wish you all the best in where this journey takes you! (And us!)

  3. Hmm, South Africa….something special to celebrate? No, you guys stay away from the great white sharks. 🙂 You thought the barracuda was bad? LOL

  4. I do belive they are live on web cam in Mossel Bay

  5. Sailing SV Delos… Question for ya…….I'm sorry if this was asked already as I don't read most comments but watched about 50-60 of your vids here… but how much $$$ does each person contribute when they come on your boat? You expect $2,000 for sharing food,gas…etc or more? I guess it depends on how long they were planning to be on board. Also where does this all end? Back in Seattle? I suprised in around Thailand and Indonesia you weren't afraid of Salt Water Crocs!

  6. Hey guys, I would like to buy beer (beers) for you.Please let me know how to do it.Is there any bank account or different way to send money to you.

  7. Can you guys start giving some date reference on your videos. Like how much time has passed since the crew left? What's the date?

  8. I still don't know how I stumbled upon SV Delos, but I must say I'm glad I did. I've watched every episode up until this one and have a question. How do you guys secure Maggie when you go on your walkabouts? Do you fear someone taking her? Has she ever been taken? Thanks and may the winds always be in your favor. – Mak

  9. I've seen all 100 of your videos and can't wait till the next one! Love thinking about doing what you're doing, but unfortunately it's a pipe dream… I'll just live vicariously through you guys!

  10. Love the sailing videos, check out our life as it is completely different from yours, we dig out from a big snow storm and flood our pond so we can skate and play some hockey! Cheers from Canada!

  11. I've been glued to these recent movies since first watching a couple years ago. I've binge watched for a week or so as time allowed. Absolutely love to watch your journey, and my jealousy is high for the adventures you all have had!

  12. At 14:38 into the video you are scuba diving with the Hammer heads above you……..that would make an awesome pic or on a tshirt………its a goosebumps picture……..I'm just saying………Just KUDOS to SV Delos crew….keep the vids coming

  13. Basses da India is still on my Map. Hopefully in May /June next year.
    I sailed down with my cat from Seychelles 2 years ago but we were beating into a South Easterly the whole day down so missed Basses.
    Pity you did not pop into Inhaca Mozambique on your way to R/Bay as we could have said Hi !!

  14. That was the most intense adventure yet!  Diving with those sharks in the middle of the ocean was epic.  I am thoroughly jealous.

  15. love the new intro esp the speaker fade. amazing underwater footage. Natural geographic quality stuff. awesome job.

  16. hey Delos! is that a kiteboard on the deck at 26:47?? been watching your videos for inspiration for the same kind of project with kitesurf onboard! cheers, Mike

  17. Fantastic! Been watching from the beginning, and I must say that you have done incredibly well. Even the style has changed somewhat… Love the content, and many thanks for doing what you do. Love from cold and rainy London. Peace

  18. $$ So are you selling any Delos SV home brew? Rum gently massaged between the waves of the great ocean goddess breast…while basking in the sun God Ra…?

  19. hey Brady. R u going to call ur girl to go back saying or what dude. don't b a full. u guys make a great couple…

  20. I am also curious about the moving flashes of light at night, I was sailing from Puerto Rico to Cuba and saw the same thing.

  21. Awesome job on the edit Karin! You guys are so inspiring. I just love the vibe of Madagascar and this video was just spectacular!

  22. Congrats Delos crew on your travels! Great videos. I find them highly entertaining. I had a question about your dinghy. What is it's length, width, and weight? Being made from aluminum it looks very durable. Also do you have some diving goggles you recommend if you you have a beard? I cannot find any that work well with my beard they always leak.

  23. i really enjoyed all 100 films….ha…… this one has a nice chill pace to it..they all leave me with a big smile on my face……
    thank you!….c

  24. Thankyou for putting a little bit of happiness into my sometimes mundane routine. I really enjoy your videos. at Mindrie WA.

  25. Congrats for the #100 episode! Keep going!

    Moitessier reading came quite late though!!?? I thought that would have been your first book!
    Also i'm not sure you look like him too much … But there is another French sailor (a bit younger than BM) who reminds me of you: Antoine. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antoine_(musician)
    – First he is engineer
    – I believe he loves Madagascar as it's the place where he was born
    – He managed to finance his sailing adventure (first with the songs, then with books, then films, and then glasses TV ads !!)
    – he met someone very important in the pacific too!

    Not sure if his book have been broadly translated in english like Moitessier's, but they provide the push to go and sail the world a lot too !

    Thanks again for all the videos. Diving with Sharks is always awesome !

  26. I work nights at me job just finished all of the episodes in 5 night 😁… Now I need more episodes 😁😁😜 Y'all have me ready to buy a sailboat ⛵️…

  27. how is it you don't get killed by sharks or salt water crocodiles, hell even the big fish?

    what did you do charm the sharks and buy them beers and offered them a ride on ure boat too?

  28. Congrats! Keep up the great work! I'm living vicariously through you guys, would love to do something like this someday.

  29. Did you guys ever figure out what the glowing 1/2 meter circles were swimming in the ocean around the boat during your first night watch in the channel?

  30. hey! great stuff over the years, but no spearfishing?? those grouper would have been nice to pull a couple out of the water at Bassas de India, fillet them and freeze them up for later.

  31. Like, who are the miserable 18 down voters? I wonder what their lives are like? Be well Delos Crew! Big fan from Halifax, Canada. Cheers 🙂

  32. you may well have seen what we call 'glow worms' on the Island of Bermuda. we normal see them 2 days after the full moon, if you would like to know more check out glow worms Bermuda..

  33. Are You In Christ, and Prayer Language
    Joel 2, Ezekiel 38,39.

    There may be some controversy in mel gibson's movie the passion of
    christ, but one thing is not a controversy and that is being IN
    Christ. If you are you would know it. Its like being hit with
    lightning.
    In Him was Life: and the Life was the Light of men. John 1:4
    Do you know if you are In Christ. It is called being saved being
    born again, receiving Jesus. The only way for you to be "In Christ",
    is to let Christ be "in you". In other words you need to receive
    Jesus as your Lord and savior. When you receive Him into your heart
    and believe in Him, He gives you His Life and you become united to
    Him.
    Just confess that Jesus is your Lord and believe that He rose from
    the
    dead to make you righteous and you will be saved (Romans 10:9,10).
    When you do this, this is some of the things God will make and give
    you In Christ!!!!
    1. I am a New Creation. 2 Cor. 5:17.
    2. I am Delivered. Col. 1:13.
    3. I am Righteous. 2 Cor 5:21.
    4. I am Sanctified. Heb. 10:14.
    5. I have Boldness, Access. Eph. 2:18, 3:12.
    6. I have Eternal Life. John 3:36.
    7. Always Triumph. 2 Cor. 2:14.
    8. Can do all things in Christ. Phil 4:13.

    How to Receive Your Heavenly Prayer Language
    His Inspirational Gifts:
    Manifestation and Church Gift of Divers Kinds of
    Tongues…1Corinthians 12:4-11
    Mark 16:17…Divers kinds of tongues is supernatural utterance by
    the Holy Spirit in languages never learned by the speaker, not
    understood by the mind of the speaker, nor necessarily always
    understood by the hearer. Speaking with tongues has nothing
    whatsoever to do with linguistic ability; it has nothing to do with
    the mind or the intellect of man. It is a vocal miracle.
    Tongues is primarily a devotional gift
    Jesus told his disciples, "After the Holy Ghost has come upon you,
    you shall receive power" (Acts 1:8). The evidence of this baptism is
    the gifts of the Spirit, with tongues almost invariably coming
    first. There are various kinds of tongues. One type—the prayer and
    worship language—is for private use and personal edification. It
    does not need to be interpreted. In fact, Paul informs us that
    although he spoke in tongues more often than all the Corinthians,
    when he did, his understanding was unfruitful. He describes his use
    of a prayer language as praying "with the spirit" (1 Corinthians
    14:14-15). This prayer and worship language is indispensable for
    every Spirit-filled Christian.
    Public ministry of tongues
    Paul teaches that only a few believers will be used in what we
    would call the public ministry of tongues, because he said in 1
    Corinthians 12:30, "do all speak with tongues?" Some take that out
    of context and say, "Speaking in tongues isn't for everyone. You can
    be filled with the Spirit without speaking with tongues." However,
    we must remember that Paul is talking about the ministry gift of
    tongues, because he began by saying, "And God hath set some in the
    church…diversities of tongues" (1 Corinthians 12:28). Then Paul
    asked, "Are all apostles?…do all speak with tongues?" The obvious
    answer is no. But Paul is talking here about public ministry. We
    should not be too concerned about our ministering in tongues and
    interpreting. We should be primarily concerned with maintaining
    tongues in the place where they principally belong—as a devotional
    gift to assist us in the worship of God.
    Why should I speak in tongues?
    Speaking in tongues is initial evidence of Holy Spirit
    baptism…Acts 2:1-4; 10:44-48; 19:1-6.
    Speaks unto God…1 Corinthians 14:2.
    Speaks in mysteries…1 Corinthians 14:2.
    For spiritual edification…1 Corinthians 14:4.
    Build up yourself…Jude 20.
    Pray for the unknown–don't know what or how to pray in any
    situation…Romans 8:26-27.
    Produces rest in our Souls…Isaiah 28:11-12.
    Out of your belly shall flow the river of Life…John 7:37-38.
    People often ask me why tongues is a common manifestation of
    baptism in the Holy Spirit. I tell them that if God is going to rule
    us, He must certainly rule our tongues; it is our most unruly
    member. Just as we grab a bit to control a horse, God takes hold of
    our tongue to assert His control of us.
    Another reason He gives the gift of tongues first is to enable us
    to build our faith for the appropriation of other spiritual
    gifts…How are we to appropriate these gifts? Martin Luther tells
    us, "Faith is the arm that reaches out to take the gift God offers."
    But our arm of faith is weak and short. So God's first gift is the
    only one that edifies the user. With it, we can build up our arm of
    faith to appropriate other gifts we may need. That's why when
    someone with a great need comes to me, I find myself instinctively
    praying in tongues.
    Because tongues, above the other gifts, is a worship gift, it
    helps us fulfill our primary reason for being: to glorify God and
    enjoy Him.
    Folks always ask me, "Do I have to speak in tongues to receive the
    baptism in the Holy Spirit?" I give them evangelist David
    Wilkerson's answer: "You don't have to. You get to. It's part of the
    package."
    How do I speak in tongues?
    Instead of telling people to ask for the gift of tongues, I urge
    them, with the words of the apostle Paul, to "stir up the gift of
    God which is in you" (2 Timothy 1:6).
    1. You make the sound by furnishing the raw material. God helps
    you with the utterance. He helps you shape the sound of your voice
    into words. Acts 2:4 says, "And they were all filled with the Holy
    Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave
    them utterance."
    2. Don't speak words your mind understands. As long as you do,
    your mind will remain in control.
    3. Don't listen to yourself. Can you imagine a little child
    learning to talk? Does he say, "Ma-ma-ma-ma," and then stop with: "I
    can't say that. That's not a language?" No, he just hugs his daddy's
    neck and prattles away.
