Once a father and son went to a kite flying festival with a kite and a roll of thread. Soon, the son's kite was flying high. After a while, the son said, "Father, the thread is holding up the kite from flying higher. If we break it, it will be free, and will go flying even higher. Can we break it?" So, the father cut the thread from the roller. The kite went higher, and the son was very happy.
But then, slowly, the kite came down and fell on the terrace of a building. The son sadly asked his father, "Father, I thought that after cutting the thread, the kite would fly higher, but why did it fall down?"
The father explained, "Son, at the height of life, we often think that some things prevent us from going higher. The thread was actually helping it stay higher when the wind slowed down, and when the wind picked up, you helped the kite go higher in the proper direction through the thread. But when we cut the thread, it fell down without the support you were providing it through the thread".
