weights, light and stuff

a friend of mine said something so cool.
he was talking about seeing something and saying how that was freeing his mind up
a bit to be lighter. he said the darkness was still there, but the weight was a little lighter.

i loved that.
i really really loved that.

cause it occurs to me that it's really the weight we get to work with.
i'm not sure how the darkness stuff works.
sometimes we go thru periods of darkness and they lighten....
but sometimes we carry darkness inside us.
and i'm not sure that ever leaves.
i don't know.

but i know how we react to it, how we carry it, when we carry it,
when we put it down or pick it up again....all that stuff seems like stuff
we can work with. and the fact that his weight got a little bit lighter
made me smile really big.

and it got a little bit lighter by his seeing stuff inside him.

i love that.

it's so helpful to see someone else with their stuff.

I love this too and it is so true - when we have darkness in and around our everything is heavier, we all have it, you're right ter. Good to share and know we're in this learning while living thing together experiencing a lot of the same issues.
