“Hello, and welcome to the airport where you can fly to your dream destination. Anywhere you want to go, you can go, for free. All you need to do is check in your baggage then you can come and collect your ticket. If you just head towards the door over there, my colleague will check in your baggage.”
You walk over to the door, not quite believing what you had heard, a ticket to anywhere you want to go! Where on earth will you pick? What have you always wanted to see? It is all just a short time away, anywhere you want to go, for no cost at all? What an opportunity. All you have to do is check in the baggage. What baggage? This is where you realise you don’t have a bag with you. What was the lady at the desk going on about, has she not seen that you do not have a bag?
You are already approaching the door, and you are about to turn around and walk right back to the lady at the check-in desk, however, someone grabs your attention. ‘Hello, just this way please, we need to check in your baggage’ A gentleman dressed smartly starts leading you down a corridor expecting you to follow. He hurries along, so you don’t have a chance to say anything about this none existent baggage.
‘If you could just place your baggage on the scales, please. You can go anywhere you want to go but your emotional baggage must be left behind. That is in the past, you must not let it weigh you down.’ He said as a matter of fact.
You can go anywhere you want to go but you must leave your emotional baggage. What are you leaving behind?
