Why is it, that in our culture we think of success as the way up… and the way down as failure?
Sadly, it seems that learning does not always mean understanding. Is there really a difference between up and down – are they not just a part of the continuum?
Perhaps it is because growing up we are conditioned to view life in a linear way. Yet when we take time to observe life, we find that absolutely everything is cyclical. The warm grows cool, cool things become warm…the moist dries, the parched becomes moist.
Hmmm the circle of life – our unbounded connectedness to the world and each other…
that is what gives me that beautiful feeling of falling but knowing that I am being held.
