Short appointement with g*d

Heya folks,

for this is my first entry here, I will make it short.
I was one week on dive holiday in Safaga, Egypt...and one dive was special and got me to think about a specific something:

It was a planned drift dive from the boat at open sea around a very large riff. As I was a solo-diver, I joined a french group of three (who were all solos as well, as I was told later).
Good then, the boat started full power against the drift, as we got almost ready and i searched my weight belt, which was 'lend' by a beginner. All on platform, preparing new belt, seeing my dive-buddies had paired up otherwise as been spoken, then the command to jump, like paratroopers in 'buddy'-teams. "Go Go Go Go!"

Good, then, another buddy of the french team, alright and off....

Here we go, current got me fast, riff moving by fast like in a movie. Divers around me, I notice the three frenchs... Me, getting closer to the riff, moving fast... looking at dephts.. Oops 30 meters..some down current had gotten me.... Big air-blow into jacket stabilizing depth...climbing slowly to the pre talked level..riff moving by fast all the time !
Ok, I realized, I lost everybody... I saw some divers around, but none of my team. I was on about 20 meters depth, riff moving somehow slower, as I started searching for my buddies. To make it short, I did not find them, and rules would say to go to the surface.
Some overwhelming feeling (the deep-fetching current, the moving riff by my side) made me unsure what to do and I decided to dive alone (for some other reason too) and here I made the mistake I didn't realize... and that was exactly the moment one strange event occurred, which gave me the riddles afterward.

At the moment, I decided to dive alone, suddenly a (diver-)face appeared directly in front of my mask from above, standing on the head (so to say)! Covering my whole sight, he looked deeply into my eyes. I thought I recognized him as someone of another team. I was somehow nervous and surprised and needed about 5 seconds to reply his sight.
Then he asked me the ok sign, which I, feeling the calm, gladly replied. He disappeared as sudden as he came and I continued my (solo-)dive, resulting in a little anger but nothing serious happened...

So my recognition was, an that is fatal to me, that in a situation of a quite a troubled, life-endangered situation, something appeared, which forced me a check-back or a hint. I am quite sure, that it was another diver, from another team, even it wasn't the diver, I assumed (I asked him later). But it was so surreal, that I also could come to the conclusion, it was a kind of protection-angel.
That lead me to the idea, that it would not be any difference !
For only in case of, you would not recognize the difference !
Isn't it ?!

That gives me the chill and the so much deep understanding about dependencies of the spirit and the real live and also their interactions....

Can you follow this ?
