Hello bloggy dear. Feels like its been a long time since we've spoken to each other. No, I have not forgotten you- you know, that its been a crazy busy past few weeks. I forewarned you (but perhaps not my readers if any) that it would be a while before any worthy thoughts were spilled on this little cyber journal. I have a question for you, bloggy. Do you like to carry luggage? Well - I know you carry all my thoughts and musings (thank you very much:hide but I'm talking about physical luggage - the kind that's carried in airports, railway stations etc. No? Thought so. Neither do I. Yet, I find myself carrying emotional baggage which I was never meant to carry! And what's funny about this is that my heart would rather carry it than let go. At least with travel baggage, it serves some purpose. It has an end and an advantage. But of what advantage is holding grudges in carefully packed egos? Egos are fragile, right? Then why do we burden them with so much unnecessary hatred, resentment, and indifference? Is it that I do not feel the weight or foresee the harm in doing this? Well, I don't think so. Because I can clearly feel the burden. It weighs me down and clutters the air pipes of my soul. Yet, it is not easy to let go of. It takes some divine strength and the miracle of unselfishness to give it over. You have to learn to love this person towards whom you feel resentment. It always, at least for me, takes God to bring about that change. Only then, I can successfully discard the baggage. By myself, I think I would forever hold on to it though all it does is wear me down. Aren't we humans funny creatures? We hate to carry physical baggage that at least serves a purpose but go around carrying emotional baggage which serve no good purpose. Someone tell me why humanity is so messed up.
