The Joy of Flying
"Fly free and happy beyond birthdays and across forever, and we'll meet now and then when we wish, in the midst of the one
celebration that never can end."
-- There Is No Such Place As Far Away
Many years ago, I was a commercial pilot. Some of my family and friends questioned my sanity, as they considered flying a dangerous occupation.
Sometimes, they'd ask me why I did it. I always answered, "Because I love it. It brings me joy." Even way back then, I did not believe in doing anything unless I loved it. I still love flying.
Despite the tragic airline accidents the past few years, flying is still one of the safest things you can do. As the legendary Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger recently said, the US healthcare system sees 200,000 deaths a year. For the airline industry to equal that huge loss of lives, there would have to be 20 jumbo jets crashing with no survivors -- every week!
So is flying safe? I think so. Is the minimal risk outweighed by the joy of flying? For me, yes.
I still have a vivid memory from way back in my flight training days in Colorado. The airport I trained at was at the foot of the majestic Front Range of the Rocky Mountains.
Sometimes I would take my little single-engine training plane up close to the mountains. I would turn off the engine and let the plane glide in the silence.
That was one of the most stunning spiritual experiences I've had in this lifetime. It gave me a far greater appreciation for this beautiful planet we're blessed to call home.
My spirit guides often remind folks, including me, that we are eternally safe -- nothing can harm us. Yet, how much joy and pleasure do we rob ourselves of because we’re scared to death -- of, well, death? We're scared to take risks, to live our lives fully and joyfully.
Is that any way to live?
