The Landing is Just Fine from Edward Hayes

The Landing is Just Fine from Edward Hayes

A hang gliding instructor told a new student:  “We can throw this hang gliding kite off the mountain, and each time it will fly and land perfectly.  Then he added, “Sometimes when we put a person in the kite, things change.”

The instructor asked the student to trust in the innate but unseen laws of physics.  However, without assurances, the human mind will create doubt and fear. And as Shakespeare wrote: “Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we might win by fearing to attempt.”

We know the universe is governed by equally immutable laws of live, unseen processes that when harnessed lead us to the good we seek.  To achieve this good, we must daily trust the process, just as the student trusts the kite as the flight begins.

Let us master and trust in the laws of life and know the flight with be exhilarating and the landing will be just fine.
