You’re climbing to the top—almost there! Just a few more inches and you’ll arrive at your final destination. It’s taken
you a lot to get there, but in just a few short minutes, you will have arrived. Pure bliss surrounds you as you realize that you have almost made it.
“Uh oh! What’s going on?? Something’s happening… something’s going terribly wrong! I’m seemingly falling back down the mountain when I should be going up it. Something’s weighing me down. I can’t move. I’m slipping further and further back down it… what’s happening?? I feel so tired. I don’t understand why this is happening to me!”
You’re doing everything right and almost at the top, but you forgot one major thing. The rocks and stones that you “pre-packed” in your backpack will eventually tire you out if carried for long periods of time. In essence, the higher and longer you climb the more energy you exert—this weighs you down. In life, we are always climbing. Climbing to graduate from school, climbing towards financial freedom, climbing to love our neighbors, but we have “pre-packed” stones and rocks [negative mentalities] that are weighing us down.You thought that masking and covering up your “issues” (the unforgiveness, hate, disappointments, and your attitude) would go unnoticed too, but the past always has a way of making you remember, as it will slowly creep up on you.
When will you let go?
Today, as you continue climbing, throw away your backpack! You don’t need it anymore. It is causing you to fall back down and lose much ground. Let go of the old mindset and mentality that has causes you to keep falling. Embrace FREEDOM.
