Oh the heart carries much, no? But last night I remembered something I'd learned on the Camino, which is this: we carry far too much. We must learn to lay it down. I learned this lesson physically and literally, because the burdens on my back broke my feet. The more we carry, the less able we are to walk free. And I learned it figuratively and metaphorically, because the burdens I carried in my spirit broke my spirit. And so I learned, however difficult it may be, we have to learn to let go.
oh, how much i carry, and how much i resist laying it down.
