Have you ever watched a person on a trampoline, reaching as they bounce into the sky? Observing the freedom and joy that they get from just being in the air for a period of time, knowing they will be steady, and that the next bounce will be the same, consistently powering them back up?
Then there are others who are more apprehensive and bounce a little lower, as if they want to stay near the ground, afraid to jump up and fly too high. The bounces are dependent on all manner of factors: height, weight, strength, balance, fear or no fear. It could be said that to soar effortlessly, a lot of choices have to come into harmony.
What if we looked around and everyone had their own trampoline, the same trampoline, and were in every way bouncing as best as they could to the height they felt was right for them? Could we see clearly those ’flying’ and those not? Absolutely.
The playful analogy used here describes life: we all start from the very same place, our own trampoline equal in every way to the next person’s and the next.
Is it possible that the trampoline represents the love that we come from and forever will be?
A lot of us across the planet can barely jump up, afraid of what it might bring. I used to be one of those people; now I feel I am stronger, more aware and confident in how I hold myself in the world. I know of many others who are also bouncing higher, more confidently on their trampoline.
How come more people are allowing themselves to bounce? Could it be that the choices we make every day affect our weight, our confidence, our inner strength, our knowing, commitment and our ability to love and trust?
I have been observing Serge Benhayon and the Universal Medicine team for some years now, and initially used to be quite jealous and very much afraid of the height they were at. I could not possibly get that high … could I? Serge and the UniMed team have always presented ‘equalness’ and this is fundamental; we are all capable of the same leaps. But until someone comes along to show us otherwise, we just may not know it yet.
Someone has to jump high first so we all get to see what is possible.
Slowly I have allowed myself to work on the many issues and beliefs that have dominated and prevented me from jumping in all of my glory, as high or as low as I want… the key being that it’s me choosing it, me doing it, and only me.
Most days I feel pretty steady on my trampoline, others I recognise that there is a bit to let go of so that I can feel me being freer, more loving.
The team at Universal Medicine has been an inspiration to many lives across the world. The appreciation runs deep, as they have shown that to soar is not to leave another on the ground, but to show by example what is possible when loving choices are the only choices. We can all fly higher if we choose to honour those choices in every moment of our every day.
