Get Out of the Box

Time for some other persons input, this was given to my friend Angus and I would like to give it to you. Angus and I have attended the strange classrooms, some together, some separately. We both got out of the box, regardless of the consequences, the rewards were worth it.

“It was night, only a few months after I’d begun my skydiving adventure .One of the other skydivers was sitting in a lawn chair. The evening lights had been turned on and he was wrapped up in a sleeping bag, reading a book under the hazy glow. He was one of the full-time skydivers, who had been attracted to the gypsy lifestyle of the skydiving community as much as the sport itself.

“What are you doing?” I asked.

“I’m in my living room, reading a book,” he replied. “Do you like the view of the backyard?” he asked, making a gesture toward the rolling hills that cascaded gently in the background. “Sometimes I take my sleeping bag and curl up under the stars in the landing area over there.”

I looked around, almost envious of his freedom.

Sometimes, we get so busy and involved creating a home for ourselves that we create a structure that’s too safe, limiting, and confined. We forget about our real home, the planet earth. It’s good to sleep indoors. It’s nice to make ourselves comfortable in our home. But don’t let your cozy nest become a locked, confining box.

Stretch your arms. Push the lid off the box. Get out into the world. Walk around. Move about. See how connected everything is. See how connected you are, too, to all that is. Make yourself comfortable, wherever you are. Make yourself a home and be at home in the world.”
A compilation of my Strange Classrooms is soon to be released, please “Like” and  keep an eye on this page.

    One of mans kinds biggest needs is security. That’s why we hate things changing. To get out the rat race for a while is good but can soon become the box if it becomes our security. Avoiding society and evewryday life is great but not sestainable. Make whever you find yourself work for you.
