Travel Light

The travel that I’m referring to in this article has nothing to do with actual travel (think planes, trains, and automobiles), but everything with how we travel spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. Think within. Think inside versus outside.

One thing is certain in life, given an average lifespan now of seventy plus years: All of us will go through a multitude of experiences. That’s just the way life is. There will be experiences that we label good because they make us feel that way; and conversely, there will be those that we label bad, for obvious reasons. In regards to the latter, those experiences might include death of loved ones, breakups, divorce, unemployment, homelessness, disease, and poverty; to name only a few events that may challenge our well being. When we go through such experiences, it can feel as though the world is actually coming to an end. Our burden of suffering can feel so incredibly heavy.

At the heart of the Law of Attraction is the truth that we bring about what we think about. Habitual thoughts that are imbued with emotional charge create in accordance with their nature and quality. Like attracts like. The body-mind is a broadcasting station. In the case of seemingly negative events and circumstances listed above, it’s easy to realize what type of life experiences we would be attracting. Now, let’s give some meaning to the title of this article:

When we travel on an actual trip, most of us probably choose to leave behind all of our unnecessary baggage. If we can get by with two suitcases, we don’t needlessly burden ourselves with four. By doing so, we more easily transition from airplane to bus, car to hotel, or country to country. It just makes good sense. For the sake of manifesting the positive results we desire, I’m advocating the same strategy–only this time at a level of mind. By lightening our load, we are actually attuning our vibration.

Although it’s natural to go through a period of anguish with many of life’s biggest challenges, there comes a time when it’s wise to set down our mental baggage. Why? Because for every time that we tell ourselves (or anyone else who will listen) how miserable our lives are, we’re needlessly creating a more painful future. That’s just the way this system functions. We create by using thought; it’s key to manifesting what we desire. Therefore, we owe it to ourselves to set down our painful stories as soon as possible and wake up to the shining beauty of the present moment. There’s a world of goodness to experience when we travel light.

Dare to dream (and care for one another).

With heartfelt regards,

  1. Thanks Art for continuing to inspire us in this waking dream. When we leave the baggage behind, as you said, we are free to embue our thoughts with feeling, and truly manifest our desires.
