Jumping for Freedom

The adventure of life never stops until you are dead. The Apprentice had known that it was time to take a risk by casting himself into the abyss with a pair of wings. The wings would allow him to fly away from the mountain top, surviving death, and increasing his understanding of enlightenment.

In the previous months The Apprentice had sacrificed much of his health to make money. He often wondered why he constantly felt so affected by the social pressure to be making money. He had fallen into a trap and abandoned his path of enlightenment to peruse finical security. He was now in a stage were he needed to recuperate his health. He spent many days walking through nature acquiring power from the rocks and trees. He lived in the moment not becoming anxious about the future and enjoyed the present. He enjoyed the present so much that he stayed there knowing that he would die. In knowing that he would die he was able to truly live the ultimate gift of life. The Apprentice had learned that “man is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result bening that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.” -Dalai Lama

For this adventure he met up with his friend The Advocate of Freedom. This man was an amazingly strong individual with wits of the highest caliber. He two had sprouted wings from this back and was excited to further his journey and understanding by casting himself from the mountain top. The Advocate of Freedom was wise and new there were those who wished to destroy the dreams of those who wished to fly free. As they both approached the mountain. The moon was there friend as it provided them the opportunity to travel through the woods and up the mountain without the need for a torch.

The two continued walking upward until they reached the mountain top. The Apprentice would jump first. As they suited up the question of “why I want to do this?” kept popping into The Apprentice’s head. The answer was simple “to really live.” As he jumped off his head fell slightly low. He felt the speed pick up and as the wings inflated he could feel a slight wobble. He corrected the wobble and flattened out his body as he shot across the sky like a fire work.
