When It All Gets Too Heavy
    #3765504 - 02/11/05 06:30 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

For unknown reasons, this subject came into my head at 3 AM. What is "it"? What is "too heavy"? Should one "lighten up" when "it" all gets "too heavy"? Does "lighten up" mean one "cuts out" mental baggage and throws it into the mental "trash can"?

Taken literally, "lighten up" could mean lose a few pounds. Exercise the excess physical baggage, release some endorphins, and the excess mental baggage may get lost in the process?

I proceeded to do a Google search to be thorough.

"When it all gets too heavy"

Interestingly, my search revealed information All about the Australian Bush fly. "Sometimes, Tasmania gets no bush flies at all for several years". Hey, I never knew that.

Upon further investigation, I found some deeper answers to my questions.

"The fly in your eye" By Jim Heath

If questions like the following have been making your nights hell, you've come to the right place:

Why bush flies pester you.
How to keep flies out of your home.
What the dung beetles are doing.
How fly sprays work.
Why flies come at certain times of the year.
How long flies live.
An easy way to tell bush flies from house flies.
What blow flies are good for.
The extraordinary way that flies taste things.
What's impressive about a fly brain.
How bush flies came to Australia.
Bush flies: are they doomed?

It occurs to me that bush flies don't worry about "when it all gets too heavy". They probably don't "worry" about the prospect of being doomed.

Or do they?

Do Bush flies sleep?

And if they do, do they dream of sheep?

I think it gets to heavy when peoples thoughts take on more then they can reasonable manage and care for. We ourselves need to be able to discern what is within our reach and means to manage and what to let go of and drop.

Even if we can reach and manage something, it doesn't mean we have to be carrying it. It's great to take to time to run an inventory of thoughts running through your head and what you need not be carrying around and just let go of them, drop them.

This was discussed at another board and some said, "easier said then done". I disagree. If you understand that no one is making you hold onto anything but yourself and look for what value you gave the weight (thought) and why you did, you can then make the adjustments to drop it easily. Most of the weighty mental baggage people carry around are thought values that make them feel extra special or based on ideas of being extra special.

If you drop the need to feel extra special through your weighty meaningful woes, the rest drops with it EASILY. Maybe its not so easy for some to drop the need to feel extra special but then, well, carry it if you want too! I say that's weighty shit!

if humans keep logging uncontrollably, then the planet will start to spin faster and faster---just like a figure skater spins faster as she pulls her arms in. consequently, things on the planet will actually weigh less

Sounds like a great diet plan.
