The White Kite.
A week ago I went up to my terrace to enjoy the lovely evening wind that was blowing all around. I spread a quilt and lied down facing the clear sky. I spotted a speck of white dancing in the sky and squinting further, I realized that it was a kite. For some reason just looking at the kite flutter in the wind stilled all the noise in my head and for the first time in a while, I felt at peace. All the fearful, unhappy, anxious thoughts regarding all that was happening in the world quieted down and I was able to simply be. I stayed for a long time just lying down and tracking the kite’s movements with my eyes.
Once I went downstairs I told my father that I wanted a kite, he said that we could make one together as it was pretty easy to make. Happily, I agreed but forgot all about it later.
Yesterday morning I went to the terrace to get some fresh air and the first thing I noticed was a pink thread that had gotten caught on the different plants in our terrace garden. I was baffled as to how such a long piece of thread had even blown into our terrace in the first place. Then I noticed that something was on the ground a few feet away from me. Not being able to see what it was due to some plants hiding it from my sight, I moved towards it to take a closer look. Finding the object in question, I stood frozen in shock and delight for a few moments. It was a white kite!
In all these years that I’ve lived in this house, never before had a kite fallen into our house. And while it was incredible for a kite itself to be there before my eyes, for some reason I just knew that this was the exact kite that I had been looking at a week ago. All of the kites I’ve seen so far have always been super colorful and quirky, but this was a basic white kite similar to the one I saw.
I ran in excitement downstairs and showed the kite to my parents. They were both surprised to see it as well. And it was the words that my father uttered that I thought were the importance of this event. He said, “When you deeply desire something, there will always be a way.”.
I had always struggled with ‘letting go’, it’s natural to feel deeply attached to something that you desperately want in life. But with that desperation comes doubt and frustration. At times I even feel anxious that if I stopped visualizing or affirming about the things I want, then it will not make its way into my life. But the truth is, none of that matters. All that matters are your emotions and how you feel about something. And the Universe will always answer.
