View from the Bridge

I am standing on a bridge.

It is a wide bridge, supported by huge supports, columns, that come from below. Between the columns and the floor of the bridge they support there are spaces that allow me to see into the deep valley below.

This bridge offered me a vision. A view, from which I could see something that inspires me into the heavens. A vision that fuelled me, that gave me strength.

Upon this bridge all are free to travel and cross. Now something has parked itself on this bridge, something that has spoiled my view, my vision. I cannot see clearly any more.

I cannot understand it, for their is no understanding. It's something I must accept.

I feel the wind as it blows me towards the other side of the bridge. There is something mysterious there. It is unknown. In order for me to get there I need to let go of the attachment to this vision, to this view.

I have worked, perhaps wastefully, on work that did not require so much effort. Destiny is changeless. I look back and see the work and energy that has gone into building this bridge and the wonderful vision that it offered, but upon contemplation I realise that it serves me no purpose if it is a bridge that serves only for a vision and not for crossing.

It seems that now is the time to let go and see what's on the other side.
