I recently realized that I do not have to carry around a 40-50lb backpack full of items throughout the day. Instead, I can use a hand cart that I have, and I can also leave things behind that no longer serve me. Although this suggestion is something several family members offered to me ages ago, only now does it sink. Perhaps I was trying to prove something to myself by insisting on carrying around that heavy backpack. But this weekend, I chose to take that weight off my back and use the cart. I found ease.
Questions for consideration:
- What is one thing in your life that you have insisted on carrying, despite it causing you discomfort, pain, or other negativity?
- Can you put that thing down?
- How do you feel whenever you do manager to surrender to ease?
In this episode, I quote two poems written by Hafiz. The book referenced is The Gift: Poems by Hafiz the Great Sufi Master translated by Daniel Ladinsky
