Carrying Productive Baggage in journey....


It's essential to travel lightly in order to enjoy the journey.

It is big challenge to restrict our physical baggage to a lighter version in our physical journeys .

But when we plan and understand ourselves and purpose of our journey it is manageable.

But these physical journeys are within a unique journey which everyone has embarked upon since our birth

We are referring here the journey called LIFE.

Often it is discussed and advised to avoid  carrying baggage of past (particularly the unpleasant past) in our onward journey of life.
But most of us not only carry burden of past in our BAGPACK  but also add a baggage of anxiety and worries about our future in it making it even more heavier

But by understanding ourselves and our purpose of unique journey the baggage can certainly be made lighter

Though most feel its ."Easier said than done"


Below illustration would throw more light ...

Illustration
Suppose an individual is travelling to Dubai now and in past say 6 months back had  travelled to Alaska .

If this individual carries all the cold weather baggage which he carried that  was  useful on Alaska trip to present Dubai trip and  has planned in future trip to Australia great barrier reef and hence also is worried and carrying the under water equipments to the present Dubai trip but has forgotten to take SUNGLASSES and SUNBURN creams, CAP and shopping list to his present DUBAI trip...

Imagine how will the DUBAI trip experience would be ???

Most of us are routinely going through the  same experience  in our  PRESENT journey of life.

The baggage has nothing for the present journey and it spoils future journey as well..

Each journey is unique and has learnings and experiences.

The whole point to illustrate a physical baggage chaos is  to only make a point that our mental baggage can be trimmed or made lighter or smarter (productive)

In other words we can make our BAGGAGE a PRODUCTIVE BAGGAGE instead of light or heavy.

As far as physical baggage is concern
Some things we wear like ornaments , watch clothes etc  and become part of ourselves during our journey and does not get categorised as a  baggage

Simarly during our life journey some experiences attitudes, habbits, behaviours must become our nature and not a memory to remember or not a worry to get  cautious about future new unknown  experiences  which get categorised as non physical baggage and burdens us .

We leave a PAIN BAGGAGE of a bad experience  which is heavy and not productive for our future journey and carry the LEARNINGS BAGGAGE  from that experience which are PRODUCTIVE and lighter as well

And over a period of time the LEARNING baggage becomes our nature eventually not being even a LIGHTER baggage as well and our journey becomes Productive

So CARRY PRODUCTIVE BAGGAGE  WHICH LATER JUST WILL LEAVE PRODUCTIVITY WITH YOU WHEN THE LEARNINGS BECOME OUR NATURE AND BAGGAGE IS LEFT FOR THE GRAVITATIONAL FORCE OF THE EARTH TO HANDLE.

LET'S not carry burden of earth ...
GOD has given gravitational force as an asset to the Earth to perform its task to pull every burden unto itself and free us to live a life free from  baggage or burden...

Dear Avinash
Good that you have added an example of travel to link baggage
To make it complete you could add some info on technique of getting rid of baggage

Truly said, Although there is no need to carry old baggage, experiences of old happening are useful in future too. Man behaves as per experience of his past life. Also the way to get rid of old baggage is not in everyone's capability. Is there any simple technique for the same.
