Tonight is the night that thousands (maybe millions) are lined up at their local Post Office to get their taxes in the mail before midnight. Yep, April 15, 2009.
This gave me a thought since there are those who feel overtaxed at this time, and then that led me to relate this to another overage, specifically the overage of overweight.
How Many Overages Do You Tolerate?
This thought, this space that many live in of feeling “over” something is really quite prevalent when you ponder it. Here are a few overages I came up with in just a few minutes:
- Overextended (in time, money, energy…)
Overweight Is An Overage
Think about it: overweight is an “overage” just like these other mental and emotional spaces (above) that you may be living in. And how do these overages in the list feel? Do they maybe feel a little heavy? Just like overweight feels heavy? Hmmm…
Overweight is a burden. It feels heavy, not only physically but energetically as well. Overweight is a debt you drag around on your body and it can drain you energetically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually just like a money debt drains you.
Overweight is an overage, a surplus of “stuff” that you are carrying around as a result of the “stuff” (the real issue; the overweight is only a symptom) that created your overweight body.
You might also be connecting with the thought here that the overage state of overweight is not just isolated to the body but can also be whole attitude, a space that permeates your way of living, a lifestyle that is overtaxed and overburdened with debt – the physical debt of fat that drags you down and the emotional, mental, and spiritual debt that resultes from this drag, this drain, and at the same time the experience of the same feeling of debt that permeates other areas of your life.
A Thought to Explore
Just a thought for you today, on this tax day, April 15, 2009, when some experience the feeling of being overtaxed while sending in their tax payments. Something to think about, to explore in your own life to see how many overages and instances of that heavy debt you are currently feeling in your life, and how overweight is a part of the overall lifestyle of thought, action, and feeling rather than being an isolated experience tied only to the physical.
Makes you wonder…if you began to clear up one area of debt how that could possibly, maybe effect other areas of debt and overextension in other areas of your life? Hmmm… 😉
