~Amusement Park ~

Walk into an amusement park with some awareness, you would leave with insights beyond just fun. The park can portray a mini version of the drama called life and world. Visitors vary in age and in their status of mind too. Some rightaway plunge into the fun, venturing into every ride fearlessly. While some choose the rides that would match them, still some just accompany and never dare to go near any ride. While on the ride too, the joy, fear expressed differs from person to person. Each have their unique flavour to it. Not all rides would be functional at all given time too, some may have been taken up for service and hence may not be available. So is it in life too. Its there and yet its not available. Sometimes the daredevils pull the never to dare and just let them go with the ride. What had gripped them as fear may just vanish and they would return with a beaming smile. In life too, when forced to face situations, confidence is that beaming smile that emerges when fear loses it grip. An interesting ride where a person is seated in a cabin and then it swings and goes right up and stands upside down. Fearless, hanging upside down, wow!what a feel it can leave one with. The whole world appears upside down, yet one without fear enjoys the best of moments. You get to see things from above and its never the same. Life situations caused by karma can make hang upside down, yet how well we hang from there and see things is what makes the ride most enjoyable. many more rides to chip in their contributions.
On exit, changes can be seen or need not be too.

Movies and books also take us on the ride of our lives through the actors or characters. We seek advenuture to test our skills and human nature but we also are afraid of the unknown so we tremble. Man is a complex creature. One foot drags while the other leaps ahead. I'm dragging a foot right now but will leap ahead tomorrow morning.

Great post...enlightening. :D

Hugs, JJ

JJ, dont ever let yourself be dragged, rather try keeping both firm at one place and then go for the leap...enjoy...
