Do you need a safety net?

We experience life fully when we are willing to trust and fall, and in doing so, we may just find that we have the wings to fly.


As we create the life of our dreams, we often reach a crossroads where the choices involve the risk of facing the unknown versus the safety and comfort of all that we have come to trust. We may feel like a tightrope walker, carefully teetering along the narrow path to our goals, sometimes feeling that we are doing so without a net. Knowing we have some backup may help us work up the courage to take those first steps, until we are secure in knowing that we have the skills to work without one. When we live our lives from a place of balance and trust in the universe, though we may not see our source of support, we can know that it is there.



If we refuse to act only if we can see the safety net, we may be allowing the net to become a trap, as it creates a barrier between us and the freedom to pursue our goals. Change is inherent in life. Remove fear from the equation and then we can devote our full attention to the dream that awaits us.



We attract support into our lives when we are willing to make those first tentative steps, trusting that the universe will provide exactly what we need. In that process, we can decide that whatever comes from our actions is only for our highest and best growth. It may come in the form of a soft landing, an unexpected rescue, or an eye-opening experience gleaned only from the process of falling. So rather than allowing our lives to be dictated by fear of the unknown or trying to avoid falling, we can appreciate that sometimes we experience life fully when we are willing to trust and fall. And in doing so, we may just find that we have the wings to fly.



When we believe that there is a reason for everything, we are acting with the safety net of the universe, and we know we will make the best of whatever comes our way.
