Go Further To Get Closer

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
I asked God, "How far do I have to go to look for him and be close to him? After all, in a way, the whole world - now twenty-five strong countries...are looking for him...."

God said- "You have to go till the end of the world for him...."

Amazed and confused I said- "But I don't know where is that..."

With eyes shining like a billion stars, God said- "So find out...."


And then, I ran. I trekked. I jumped. I crossed mountains. And rivers. And forests. And concrete jungles. Tirelessly I went ahead. Only in my quest to reach the end of the world. And to be in his arms- smelling his smells, singing his songs...

And then one night I reached a sort of a cliff. I walked closer to its edge. I felt as if I was seeing the infinite in front of me. Only darkness, zillions of stars shining- above and below me.

I felt- Yes, this is the end of the world....

Just then, I heard a plane land behind me. I turned back to see a dazzling British Airways flight.

It was magical- the pilot said he knew what my destination was and would take me there.

I hopped into the comfort of the flight. After what seemed like days of travel in an infinite space, I spotted a sparkling planet below. The pilot landed me there and lo and behold- there was the Malaysian Airlines flight which everyone was looking for. I spotted my beloved there...he came running and hugged me...we were both crying....

Through foggy eyes I saw the pilot of British Airways waving goodbye to me and he disappeared within seconds into the vast infinite...

    1. Thanks a lot Nabanita! :D Yes..the focus of world's energy on finding the #MH370 flight made inroads into my dreams as well....!

      Yet U missed some points....(1) after jumping off the end of the world only I met my lover..meaning the now missing plane is safe in Heaven- dat's another planet in my post here...[In reality I want it to be safe & dreams have another way of symbolically saying the same thing!]
      (2) the pilot of British Airways was God Himself...He saw I had reached "the end of the wrld" meaning I had already jumped off the cliff & wanted 2 grant me my wish.....
      (3) British Airways is God's divine vehicle too!
      (4) At the end of it all...I'm dreaming....:)

  3. Wow! What creativity! God Himself took you on the flight to reunite you with your loved one & the missing plane.
    Wonderful thought.
    At the end it was all a dream.
    Hope the dream becomes real and God ensures safety of the missing flight.
    Best wishes Amrita
