I can only fly freely
when I know there is a catcher to catch me.
If we are to take risks,
to be free,
in the air,
in life,
we have to know
that when we come down from it all,
we're going to be caught,
we're going to be safe.
The great hero is the least visible.
Trust the catcher.

Henri Nouwen in Raw Faith by John Kirvan


To Practice This Thought:
Let go, fly, and trust.
