Come to the edge

Come to the edge, he said.
We are afraid, they said.
Come to the edge, he said.
They came.
He pushed and they flew.
Guillaume Apollinaire

Dragonfly, thank you for sharing this. Being willing to come to the edge so often involves stretching ourselves into the unfamiliar. The unfamiliar engenders panic. But what if someone farther along the path gives us a little push? The edge loses its terror and becomes the platform that launches us into flight.

Hi Catrien, yes I reasonate so much with what you say...and why I am so thankful to have met elders and fellow travelling women in Moonjourney's...i recently was given that extra push by spirit as I was fearing the call to take flight...and spirit had to shout so rather gave me scare!...if brief but a lasting connection...I am lucky to be able to hear...
