I will ride, I will fly
Chase the wind and touch the sky
The idea of ‘touching the sky’ has long captured human imagination. Since recorded history began, people have speculated on what makes up the sky. In the book of Genesis, the creation story of the ancient Israelites, the author imagined the sky as a great dome, separating the waters above (rain, snow) from the waters below (rivers, seas).
Metaphysically, the waters symbolize unexpressed capacities of the mind. They may be conscious or unconscious desires, calling to us to manifest. They are our dreams, as yet unformed.
The sky (dome, firmament) symbolizes our power of Faith. Faith moves and works in both the conscious and subconscious mind (the waters above and the waters below).
Faith is our power to move the unseen into manifestation. When we seek to ‘touch the sky’, we are putting our faith into action. If our dream is unconscious, we are inviting it into our conscious awareness. If it is conscious, we are inviting it to come forth.
