Lately I was watching the movie Diana inspired from the life of Lady Diana. There’s a dialogue in the movie I instantly fell in love with. It was when Diana suffers a break-up with Dr. Hazrat Khan (A Pakistani Heart Surgeon) after trying her all to make it work. She lets herself be wallowed in misery and sorrow until she collects herself back and makes a decision to go on a trip with Dodi. It is at this point her confidant Sonia asks her if she is fine and if she is not making this decision out of her loneliness. The response of Diana is what struck a chord with me instantly. She says, “I don’t feel the need to be caught anymore; because, I am not falling anymore. I am flying..”
It must not be without a reason that love is always fallen into! A free fall with a faith that our beloved will catch us.
And when that beloved fails to catch us? …
Well…It leads to heartache, pain, sorrow and misery…Does it not?
Would it not be amazing if we could love ourselves so much that we would be capable of flying?...So if no one is there to catch us in our fall, we’ll simply fly in the parachute of self-love…
So much we have been programmed to keep searching for love outside, we have actually forgotten to look within and nurture the self love which is the source of any other love.
I loved the way a strong idea is entangled in the subtlety of this simple thought. “I don’t feel the need to be caught anymore; because, I am not falling anymore. I am flying…”
May all of us fly in self-love! <3
