You all must have seen kites flying up in the sky with all its radiant colour and patterns. I too have enjoyed watching them fly high and even ran insanely behind them when they fall, just get hold of it.
At that time I never thought of how a simple, small kite can teach you some deep lessons for life. But now I think I have become more philosophical and metaphysical, ” and Goss I don’t know it’s for good or not.”
So, now when ever i encounter a kite flying up in the sky, I just can’t stop myself from wondering, how a single tread is helping the kite to fly high and touch the sky. “Woo.. it became rhyming” and as soon as the the cord gets lose or snapped the poor kite losses it’s control and falls down and hit the ground.
What is the strength of that trivial tread, how it keeps the kite aflote against all odds?
Let’s give some thoughts on that petty cord and awaken the philosopher within you…..
Just like the kite we too want to fly high and explore the vast sky that spreads over us, and we try are best to do that and the treads which are keeping us afloat, are the bonds and connections which we have with our roots, people around us, people you love or the people who love you even the connection to your thoughts and your inner self.
Each bond is a thread and is equally paramount to keep you going. But be careful with all those delicate treads, don’t create a mess around you and just like a fish get entangled in the mesh or neither a spiders web to trap others. Keep it simple yet strong, be true to yourself and genuine at the same time. Every thread is like a delicate lace, intertwined with the mixture of trust, care, genuinity, belief, assurance and many more. The amusing fact is how ever delicate these threads may be they never fail in strengthening you. And even if you have a little knowledge about flying kites you would know how much of hard work it takes to make the string strong and protect the kite while flying it.
Same goes with our bonds…..
The more true and pure nourishment it gets the more stronger it becomes.
We all are in the journey of our lives, travelling very fast, and it’s pleasant to watch how we come across other travellers on the journey admire their quirks, enjoy every bit with them like never before, create tonnes and tonnes of memories to cherish and then just like that we move on with our journey adding one more thread to strengthen our rope which has the capacity of pulling us up when ever we feel trapped or low at any point of time in our life.
But if at any point of time you feel that instead of providing you support, it’s pulling you down, then just be strong enough and let it go…..
Or else the weight will not let you enjoy your journey and go far to explore all shades of life and explore the vast sky.
But remember one thing.. just the way you are counting on your threads to fly high, someone may be counting on you as their support to stay afloat. Try not to let them down, coz some times it feels amazing to be a reason for someone’s smile and take them high where you wanted to be…..
P.S.- “the smile gives you a kick start, and a feeling of being at cloud nine.. and that’s what you want.. to fly….”
