A Smooth Flying Life On A Airplane:
A plane ride is smooth and with little or no bumps; there maybe some turbulence, which God uses to test you, just to keep you honest and focus. While on a airplane you can see all around you, to include up, down, left & right with no blinders on. On this plane you can see the world, as it is seen by God.
On this plane, you are taught not to love the world, nor things in this world. God is the pilot and he's in complete control, your help is not needed. All that's required of you, will be for you to maintain your focus on God. Also, you're required to put all of your trust in your pilot (God), who will lead you and guide you throughout your life.
A plane ride is so smooth, that you can't hardly tell you're moving. When you completely let go of the world and yourself, than your ride would be just as smooth. If you haven't denied yourself or this world, than you're still roughing it out, on that fast train going nowhere.
