Most of us have been dragging suitcases and steamer trunks of baggage with us as we shuffle our way through life. Ever wonder why we seem to think this is a natural thing to do? How on earth did we settle with the idea that it was just part of living life on earth? Boy, the deeper you look at things about life, the crazier they seem. We bought into so much nonsense and what I am wondering now is where this all came from. I mean think about it, why on earth would we agree to drag around all our painful parcels of life behind us in our suitcases and steamer trunks so we can open them whenever we feel that pain or suffering should be felt again? It almost sounds like a punishment doled out by some entity way back when, and we being the good little humans that we are, we accepted our punishment and went on our way grunting and dragging our wares behind us. Now here is the real insanity of this warped picture. Why do we find it nearly impossible to open our satchels and let it all go? You’d think we would be anxious and more than willing to dump it all and move on, so glad to be done with it all. But no, we hold on and struggle unmercifully to find ways to deal with our pasts and release them. We allow them to define who we are, create for us the lives we live, to become the people we become. I know first hand, I still fight the demons in my old satchel continually. My childhood was less than stellar, my wounds run deep and my father’s voice still echoes in my brain at every turn. This is sheer insanity! There must be a way to do this, to release it all and move on. What is the secret to opening up the suitcase?
I can’t say as I have the answer. Perhaps I just refuse to open it up or am afraid to. If I look at this from a logical point of view I would have to say we must just have to DO it! Sounds simple huh? Just refuse to allow yourself to associate with those thoughts and images any longer. Refuse to allow them in. Do you suppose it is really that easy? Maybe it really is and we just keep perpetuating it along because we figure it CAN’T be that easy. What a goof on everybody if that is so. We’ve all got giant muscles from pulling that steamer trunk and for no good reason! The mind is a very powerful machine. Somehow we all got convinced way back when that we were incapable of helping ourselves. It probably dates back to the beginning of time when the monsters of global dominance decided we needed to forget our abilities and made us rely on them for everything so they could gain the control they desired. I really don’t know where we all fell off the train tracks and lost our own powers, but boy we sure all need to work on getting them back. What a waste of a good life to be saddled with such unnecessary baggage. I always say I like a good challenge so I’ll take this one on and I invite anybody else to join me. Let’s give ourselves the best Christmas present ever, let’s open our satchels and let the boogie man out, encourage ourselves to refuse to allow it back into our lives, urge ourselves to see ourselves in a new light, beings with great power and control over our lives to be or change or have or do anything we desire. Game on! Lets slay the boogie man and start a new year free and at peace with who we are and with our lives.
Blessings to you all,
