MAY 27 – JUNE 9, 2021

In my dreams I fall sometimes and often I fly. My soul is looking for these states. I find that I can fly when I’m scared or on the moment when I start to fall. Something turns in my stomach and I remember that I flew before and that I could fly.

If the memory of flying doesn’t come, I keep falling. I always wake up before I meet the earth. Something turns in my stomach and I remember that I flew before and that I could fly. Maybe the reality is this rough earth. I’m in my bed, once again, I fell on a soft surface. How many people dream this dream?

 

No fall is without reason, and no fall on soft is without reason…

A few months ago, I caught myself in a special state of mind. It was December at 2020.

I had made important decisions and taken action for my professional development and personal life. As a result, I experienced a mixture of different feelings and emotions – impatience, fear of failure, enthusiasm, curiosity, desire for growth. Calmness was the last thing on my mind. I started scribbling and writing things down:

Lucky people are prone to bad decisions. The feeling that I will always get away with it makes me want more and more of life. I always get away with it, right? But time and again situations arise that remind me that I am not immortal. And I fall… on a soft surface.

I was right in the section between the jump and the ground. The direction was clear – down (Let here “down” be perceived neutrally and remove the symbolic meaning, let it be just a direction). Falling on a soft surface meaning “I was lucky”.

Luck does not exist in the universe, but for me, it is completely real.

Luck is most often seen as the result of external circumstances. In this case, luck is something desired that comes into our lives and we do not have much credit for it.

For me, however, it is more valuable to consider another aspect of luck. That is when luck comes before the result. It appears, as an abstract thought construction, the belief that allows us, or makes us, take action without a visible rational explanation. This refers to discoverers and people who play the lottery.“
