3rd September - Balance

I respect the wisdom of my child spirit

My child spirit is flying a kite.  A kite depends on the wind for lift.  I can run and run and run and never get it up in the air.  Yet with just a breath of wind, whoosh and up it goes.

An experienced kite-flier now, I never waste my time running in circles on still days.  I sit quietly, enjoying the stillness.  When I feel the air start to move, I'm ready.  I let out some string and my kite climbs higher and higher, until it's almost out of sight.  I play with the balance: If I let the string go slack, the kite will fly away forever.  If I pull too hard, it will tumble down to the ground.  If I keep some tension on the string, the kite soars and glides and loops until I bring it down.

My inner child inherently knows the balance between holding on and letting go.  I know I need to learn both to have healthy intimate relationships.  Today I will remember the feeling of flying a kite.  I will respect the wisdom of my inner child.
