How do we travel light?

Traveling light can be very difficult. How do we travel light?

When it comes to buying a promo airplane tickets the only allowance for "carry on" is 7-kgs for PAL and Cebu Pacific and with specification sizes of bags to use. For PAL if your bag goes beyond 7-kgs. (as of the moment) they allow up to 15kgs. baggage weight without extra charge, the "carry on" bag will be checked in as baggage.

Now, for 7-kgs. How do we travel light?

For example we can avoid bringing shampoo in plastic containers and bring sachets.

Pack a light weight clothings. Usually thick cotton blouses are heavy than silk or satin which doesn't absorb too much water.

And, this can be compare how we travel light in our everyday living. If we carry too much "thick cotton clothing" meaning we can easily absorb all the negative comments and energies, you'll end up being burden with so much unnecessary weight and gets you stressed and in return suffer from health problems. Being a cotton is not good because all the unimportant emotions like hatred, anger, jealousy, and talking negatively about your acquaintances or gossiping - can not be easily "dried", it stays there on and on until the sun shine through and your eyes will be opened to the truth in what you're doing are all wrong. Now what if there's no sun shining? The cotton will end up with the fungus rotten with foul smell.

Bad memories are hard to forget it's our natural defense mechanism to teach us not to do it again. But if we let Jesus - heal our awful memories - all the hatred and rotten fungus will be gone - though the memories are still there the pain are all gone.

I pray to all those whom I didn't know that I have hurt, let the sun shine through their hearts to dried up all the negative emotions I have caused and though the scars may still be there, let all the pain be completely gone.

Think about it, do you still want to travel like a cotton or foam?


If you look into my eyes
will you see my love for you?
If you look at my lips
will you know it's meant for you?

Everything happens for reasons...
Every moment has its own seasons...

The right time will come,
we will be together for eternity,
The right moment will come
our bond shall be filled with God's Blessings and Security.
