I'm lightening my load, man

"Human life is like a man carrying a heavy load on his back and making a journey down a long road. If we add to the already heavy burden we must carry we are inviting nervous collapse. We must cut away all unnecessary baggage and walk triumphantly through this difficult world." - Koichi Tohei, Aikido Master & Founder of The Ki Society, from 'Ki in Daily Life.'
