Ironing out the creases of life is a life well spent Or else to truly forget and make merry. Celebrate life every day. Some of us who were brought up to admonish our own shadow for losing our seriousness value the light moments of our lives more than others would understand.
To shut out anything heavy consciously is no mean task. The lightness of being happens as we drop the burdens we carry. Ironically and contrary to everything else, this process is not time bound or tabulated. One spark of realization about the futility of carrying your load and it can be like instant coffee. Instant Nirvana! Or then, there is always the possibility of the one step forward and two backwards theories.
So much unlearning and unwinding precedes becoming light for many of us who have wound ourselves tightly and created several knots. Generally takes a lot of time to loosen and let go. So, there is no better time than NOW to start, Better late than "The late".
