Wishcasting Wednesday: What do you wish to fly free from?

In response to Jamie Ridler’s Wishcast Wednesday journal prompt:  What do you wish to fly free from?

Building on last week’s wishcast, I wish to fly free from the burden of materialism.  Yowza! Yes, materialism.  To what degree can I be free?  I identify myself thru my things.  Even my collection of books is a reflection of how I see myself.  For about $5 I can buy a book that seems to say something about me…it affirms me and makes flesh the concepts that float around in my head and my heart.

Yet, I am coming to a place where I know that only I can I-dentify myself.  I exist in the simple act of being.  The books, the art, the material world around me is not me.  And yet, what a trip to consider parting with the bulk of it.

Some part of me wonders why I am letting go.  I think it is that I feel like I could possibly be more free without this stuff.  And certainly, if I wanted to fly…to move or travel…I wouldn’t have so much trouble getting off the ground.

Also, I wonder about all the baggage I carry around.  Not just the material baggage, but the physiological and emotional baggage.  Could I feel more free of body and spirit if I let go of the environmental encumbrance?  There is one way to find out.  Let go…and fly.
