Check out this picture by Orlando. This is amazingly profound as well as simple. If you were a hot-air balloon this is incredibly simple, if you take on weight it drags you down, if you throw the weight out you rise. So why can’t we do this with ourselves? We sometimes seem to take on everybody else’s problems as well as our own, we worry about the past and we worry about the future. We take on so much weight we are unable to even look up from it and even attempt to fly at all. If you like helping others make sure you can take the weight and still enjoy the flight (your life) before it is over.
When you finally let go of the things that weigh you down, then you’ll be ready to fly!
