Have you ever heard of the saying – carrying the weight of the world around on your shoulders? When people see you they don’t realize you are carrying a weight. It is only when they notice that everything you do is being calculated and that you are cautiously working things out – things they don’t understand. Some people choose to be stress to show they are important. It’s an ego thing to show some thing I am doing is important. Why do people become “over-significant“? We somehow socialized ourselves to become “heaviness”. People act unconsciously in the way that “culture” is required, instead of lightness.
How can I make a change? We are living in the culture of having the habit of becoming “heavy”. We are required to carry the extra weight of life. If you have the intention to shift from heaviness to lightness, you will need to know what baggage that you carry with you. Will it be possible to carry my belief lightly? How we make a shift? How to bring the lightness to people? Looking at positive can be a great deal to have immediate shift in “lightness”. A sense of humor can also move from heavy to light mood. You can choose and structure the “new image” and grow the truth in you to make the lightness “sustainability” in your life. Now let’s shoot over to a lightness image. The lightness of this release is felt though out your whole body. You stand upright and take a huge breath. You feel alive. You feel like you could fly, you feel like you could do anything. You feel like you can dream big and make it happen. You begin to dream and then to plan and slowly your goals come before you. The lightness of this release is felt though out your whole body. Nothing stands in your way. This is the world of lightness.
People gain the conscious and awareness in their life. Lightness is being and seeing the world (shift the perspective, and grateful for). What did it take for you of being a light? Spiritual belief, activate, connect to the source of “being light”. It’s a pole to pull us into the lightness, which connect to the source that you want to stay there, in the space of lightness.
But what if you had chosen the other option, you begin to try to plan your life around these fears but all that happens is that you build greater fears. You are not happy, you don’t laugh. You’re alone. No one understands your plight. Your life is a struggling; you are a victim to the past, to the images you carry around with you. They hold onto you so strongly like a vine around your limbs, mind and emotions. Every thought, feeling or movement you have reinforces the images. The images are now your world. Your world is now fearful, black, painful and a struggle. This is the world of significance.
If our motivation was driven by a desire to please others and to show everyone what he was capable of. This is a great example of a person who is looking outside of himself for recognition. His sense of self-love and his motivation to achieve greatness for himself is being driven by his desire to be seen by others as great.
Instead put on your dancing shoes, lighten your step and move to the moment. So how do we bring about lightness in our life? The first step is to want to. To do this requires observing where you are significant in your life. Awareness is the first step to change. You can make a choice as to whether you see the world in a positive or negative way. You do not need wealth, or anything else to do this. It is within you to make this shift – not outside of you. Paul Wilson wrote in his book, Calm for Life, mentioning that “Being Calm is the Key to Lightness”. Being still is important in achieving inner calm, keeping the state of mind and having a state of being.
Coming to the present without the baggage is lightness – To be light is to feel – light like a feather, weightless, free, floating. Imagine a feather floating through the air. It turns and spins and moves throughout the air with such ease and grace. The feather, when in this mode, looks beautiful as it plays with the wind, spinning, rolling and gently floating around.
The feather is not alone. It is moving with the wind. We begin to try to control the wind, to determine which way we want it to blow. We all know this is not possible but we still try to achieve it.
