HOW HEAVY IS YOUR BAGGAGE?

Today I saw a seagull battling to take off from the beach with a big fish in its mouth.  It was determined to keep its fish, but the price to be paid was loss of flight and mobility.

Which of course then got me to reflecting on how much the baggage we carry around with us impedes our ability to fly.

Every time we feel resentful of others, sorry for ourselves, regret our past actions, feel fearful of the future, feel scared of taking the next step, think we are victims or make ourselves slaves to the behavior of others, we hinder our own progress.
