People are afraid of falling. Even I’m afraid of falling. Heck! Who would even want to fall? Falling often is portrayed as a negative word. Over the years our brain has been wired into thinking that – Falling hurts ☹️. We think low of people who fall. We are afraid that we could get hurt if we fall and thus we don’t take any risks. Hence our progress is staggered. The net result is that we only do things that we are comfortable doing.
We repeat the same cycle every day. We meet the same people, think in the same way, and do the same old crap again and again. Our brain feels safe by doing the things that we are acquainted to. Anxiety and panic enter the room when you start to think of doing something NEW. Your past failures come and dance before you making you uncomfortable, in taking the fall.
In reality, falling is such bliss. Look at the skydivers, and people who jump from the plane, they look so much excited and are full of adrenaline. Ask them, about their fall and they would say that it was one of the amazing experiences in life. Fear is what you would feel until you jump. Once you take the fall, fear vanishes. Joy, blissfulness, freedom, and serenity engulfs you. And in fact, you would be on top of the world.
An eagle teaches its kids to fly by pushing them down a cliff. The baby eagle would be standing there on the cliff, enjoying the view, and suddenly, the mother pushes it down. Baam..! One second it was enjoying the view, the next second, it is falling headfirst into the ground! Now, the baby bird would feel like it is going to die until it opens up its wings and feels the air gushing through its feathers. Ah! That feel, when you open up your wings, cannot be expressed in words!! You stop falling and start to glide. You begin to soar up in the sky. And just remember – “The sky has no limit.”!!
So, I’m closing up this post by saying. Don’t hesitate to fall, you might be standing on a high cliff. You are not going to hit the rock bottom, instead, you are going to soar up high in the sky like an eagle. Life is all that we got, don’t let fear stop your progress..! Move forward in life, rise high..! And just remember, falling is bliss! Ciao..!
