The edge of the known world

 

 

Beyond the edge of the world there’s a space where emptiness and substance neatly overlap, where past and future form a continuous, endless loop. And, hovering about, there are signs no one has ever read, chords no one has ever heard.”  ― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

This is the world of your own imagination. It is often referred to as the edge of night. A new beginning. It is our inner selves filled with the hopes and dreams, shadows and fears, joys and sorrows ,hopes and expectations of a life fully experienced.

For many people the “edge” is a transfer point. A place filled with hope and promises of something new and different waiting for them on the other side of life if they will only take the chance to explore it.

Others view this same transition point with fear and apprehension. It stresses their personal comfort zones. They crave a change in their lives but the costs involved in attempting this lifestyle alteration and the rewards they could potentially receive do not balance out in their own mental accounting ledgers. The edge is a scary place to be in or contemplate.

Life is all about continual change. It is better to reach for a new and untried future than to cling to a past that is dragging you down and ruining your positive experiences in life.

If you have faith in yourself the edge will help you reaffirm the inner you that is struggling to express itself and lead you to a reality filled with new horizons and sunsets.

  1. Lovely post. I like the words, “Life is all about continual change. It is better to reach for a new and untried future than to cling to a past that is dragging you down and ruining your positive experiences in life.” Well done!
