A cliff is a steep and often vertical edge between two separate areas of greatly differing heights. It could be between a mountainous area and the more level lowland below, between a high plateau and a low riverbed, or, as in the photograph above, between the sea and high land. It is the interface, often rocky and perilous, between two extremes.
In life we often get tested, sometimes over little things but at other times they can be more important and daunting, like climbing up – or down – a high cliff. At these times we must call on our own reserves of courage, tenacity and persistence if we are to attain our goal.
It is so easy to be distracted from our inner knowing by the pressure of our peers, by the prevailing ethos and ethics of our society. What we must always remember is that our pathway is our own – we decide the direction. We cannot for long be swept away by the popular tide of the day if it does not resonate with our inner spirit. To do so could cost us to loose our grip and fail the test set for us.
