Can you stop yourself while in the middle of a free fall?
Can you withdraw when you slowly step into a quick sand where the view of rain forest is perfect knowing you are sinking deep each moment?
Can you control the racing heart that seems to beat on its own rhythm controlled by an external force?
Can you stop yourself from not obsessing about the process of getting high that makes you feel alive?
It is during times like these that you need an anchor to hold on to. A reason to restrain. A reason to hold on to sanity.
A moment of pause for self-preservation.
Self is deluded in free fall. The exhilaration, thrill, rush makes your senses disappear as you are not thinking about the final descent and lost in the beauty of the moment. The joy of thousand lives is lived in those few seconds that makes everything else immaterial, including life. The question is, can you find an anchor during that fall to prolong it? To hold on to those “falling” moments?
More importantly, when you find an anchor, will you hold it long enough to pause without getting enamoured by the surrounding beauty and find a way to enjoy the scenery, warmth and gratitude for reaching those heights?
A lot depends on your maturity in the climbing process and your ability to restrain.When you lose your restraint and loose your grip on your anchor and willingly let go off your foothold, you enter the zone of free fall. Free fall with hope!
Hope that you will reach your destination. Pure Faith! Pure Instinct with honest intentions!
It takes a lot of courage to let go as only one in a million land on their feet. For the rest, it’s an impending crash. And the part that’s broken is not made with bones.
Yet, we risk ourselves every time to climb, step by step, with a sense of déjàvu. Perhaps, the reason is that some people want to fly. They are suffocated by the predictability and safety cocoon of Earth and this climb for a jump, gives them a purpose.
A purpose to see the extraordinary in ordinary.
A purpose to live in a different plane that imbalances their soul equilibrium letting them know of its existence.
A purpose for the heart to feel alive in spite of breathlessness.
Self-preservation is for cowards. Restraint is for the fearful.
Letting go is pure giving and giving in! The falling is wrought with grave danger, but, even if you are going to crash, there is those few seconds of bliss in descent. And for these optimistic hopeful climbers, that is better than dead-soul existence on the ground!
Yes! There is a possibility of broken hearts that might cripple them for life and kill their optimism to climb again. But, if you survive, with each broken fall, you understand your inner terrain better. You realize your missteps. Maybe you will gain the perspective to anchor yourself and enjoy the Sun next time. Maybe you will gain the insight to accept and stay on the ground and enjoy the mountains and sky from below. Just Maybe!
But there are those eternal searchers who will climb relentlessly each time, jumping, sooner or later; seeking their destiny and destination to land on their feet and hearts in tact! That’s the day they will stop climbing; that's the day they will be content and peaceful having found their soul destiny on Earth!
