Passion Party #390 - Fear of Flying

We all know the lesson of Icarus
even if we don't know our Greek mythology.
Icarus put on wings and dared to fly.
Not only that, he dared to fly higher than anyone else.
The gods got angry at his daring
and the penalty was death.

We spend so much of our lives
being trained to fit in
to follow the rules
to stay in line
We are taught not to stand up
or to stand out
lest we anger the gods.

But what if
you were born to fly?
What if
you see something that needs to be done
and you have the will to do it?
What if
God smiles on your essential being
and does not see it as pride or arrogance
that you want to fly?
