Phoenix

If anyone ever asks me what my spirit animal is, it’s the Phoenix.

This Greek mythological fire bird tells the most wonderful life transformation story ever. It is said that there is only one Phoenix at a time in the world and the bird lives in a 500-year cycle. Nearing the end of its life cycle, the majestic bird gathers cassia barks, frankincense and myrrh, flies up to the highest point in the world and builds a nest out of the fragrant twigs, barks, and spices.

Then, the Phoenix sings the most beautiful song the world ever heard and it ignites itself into a blazing fire. Out of the ashes, a new young Phoenix emerges. Once it is strong enough to fly, the Phoenix flies out in all its glory into the sky and lives for the next 500 years. And the cycle continues on…

why traveling light part 2

In the last post, I wrote about how we tend to accumulate material possessions as we go through life. Take a moment to look around your house and notice the stuffs that are lying around. If you are to box up all the stuffs that you haven’t used in a month, how much more empty is the house? Do you really need all those stuffs? If not, why do you still have them around? If you need to move, won’t they be like baggage you need to lug around making your move so much harder?

There are also other kinds of baggage that we tend to carry as we journey in life – the emotional baggage. These are the negative thoughts or feelings that burden our soul such as fears, guilt, worry, doubt, weariness, grief, and disappointment.
