Untying oneself

As part of the retreat talk, Fr Raj Kumar presented another point for reflection:
Just like a boat still tied to a peg on the shore, we are often held back due to some of our own choices.  In order to row ahead and progress, we need to untie ourselves.  No amount of rowing the boat will take us forward, if the boat is still securely tied to the post on the shore.  No amount of effort to progress in spirituality is of any use, unless we untie ourselves, detach ourselves from some of those things to which we've tied ourselves to.

This Lent, it is good to reflect and see what are those things that I've tied myself down to.  Perhaps good and useful things but really necessary?  Time to move ahead....
