“To fly high and to fall deep is better than never to have flown at all”

Summoned by the sun rising from the mists, the bird has experienced the joy of flight. How high it flies, we may never know. When or where it may fall is beyond our ken. It will have gone where we can watch but never follow.

The higher you fligh the deeper the fall.
I prefer to go the middle way.
Success is as dangerous as failure.
Hope is as hollow as fear.
What does it mean that success is as dangerous as failure?
Whether you go up the ladder or down it,
you position is shaky.
When you stand with your two feet on the ground,
you will always keep your balance.
What does it mean that hope is as hollow as fear?
Hope and fear are both phantoms
that arise from thinking of the self.
When we don’t see the self as self,
what do we have to fear?
See the world as your self.
Have faith in the way things are.
Love the world as your self;
then you can care for all things.

Wise words indeed. I aim for the middle way, for the balance, but my aim isn’t always particularly accurate….
However, another aspect is, that much art is borne of the pain – valleys are required for the peaks…..all differing perspectives
