Walking on Fire (Day 1429)

and then we would go ahead with our outdoor exercise of Walking on the Fire. She wanted all of us to be a part of building the fire and we saw how the flames were ignited. When the flames were loud and fuming, she asked us to get ready and stand in a line to walk on the fire. I initiated the process, stood close to the starting point and calculated my steps. I decided that if I walked fast I would cross the path in four/ five steps and did just that and wonder of wonders I didn’t get burnt.

Many were excited by the process and did it again and again and some were visibly scared but did it all the same. That night I came home a brave heart. Who would have imagined that I would be able to walk on fire? The process had taken away my fear of fire and more important, my perception of fear. Next time I would not be scared of anything, or let me put it this way that next time I would not the imagination of fear come in the way of my adventure.

I had a good night sleep and next morning I was happy to return to the workshop.
