ski boot of the mind #mindfulness
After wearing ski boots all day, walking back to the chalet in them and then putting on normal shoes – you suddenly feel very light-footed and almost as if you are floating.
It made me realise that very often I carry ski-boot thoughts and feelings in my mind that weigh me down unnecessarily. Becoming aware of them enables me to let them go and experience the lightness of awareness and being rather than the heavy weight of doing all the time.
You have to experience that inner freedom, to appreciate how heavy our normal way of thinking can be, and how light witnessing our thoughts rather than being a victim of them can be.
