Dropping the Pack
Many of us have been in a situation, a crossroads of sorts and then have looked back and questioned the decision we or others have made. Questioning these decisions, we have been carrying around extra weight.
Having our thoughts consumed by the actions that either we took or what others took, we are allowing the weight of what happened in the past to distort the happening taking place right before our eyes. This unnecessary questioning turns into unnecessary stress which leads to not just disease of the body, but also dis-ease of the mind.
If we find that the extra weight we are carrying around is caused by the actions of others, we must drop that pack immediately for we cannot control what others do. All we do have control over is the actions we personally take.
If we find that the extra weight we are carrying around is caused by the actions of ourselves, we must trust that we took the best action possible with the level of consciousness we had when we did the action. Then we drop the pack immediately.
Dropping the pack, our thoughts are free of the ‘what if’. And, when our thoughts are free, we are truly free.
