Descend is not the end

Pride goes before a fall: a reason that everyone told me leads to ones decent and so, “you should be careful,” they said. But I’ve see and found out that it is not the only reason that contributes to ones decent. Whatever the reason be – a tree may fall, a mortal may stumble , a stone may roll down a steep slope, a stream of water may finds its way down a hill.

Anything can miss a step and fall to its decent. The height is not necessary. What’s necessary is if we still have the courage to ascend. Mortals may loose their body, streams may lose their identity, tress may lose their place but that is not the end of it. The five elements of nature – Akash (space), Vayu (air), Agni (Fire), Jala (Water) and Prithvi (Earth) work and shape a new beginning for mortals, a new mightier or weaker stream of water makes its way after a fall, a new sapling from the seeds of a previous fallen tree or a new sapling from another tree substitutes the older one.

We fall… learn…ascend and we become new. We all ascend after a descend no matter how small or big that is.

We all ascend with a new identity, a new learning and a new beginning.
