Spring is a wonderful time to think about what we are carrying in our pack. As we shed coats, sweaters, scarves, hats, is there something else
that served its purpose but doesn’t need to be carried right now?
Are you carrying a lot on your shoulders?
Assume a quiet state of mind.
Think of a pack on your back.
What is in the pack?
What is making it too heavy to carry?
removing the weight from the pack.
How does it feel now?
Do you need to remove more weights from your pack
so that you can carry it?
How do you feel now?
Sometimes we don’t know
how much we are carrying
until we lighten the load.
