learning to live freely and lightly....

this one who teaches me daily....

"Are you tired?  Worn out?
Burned out on religion?
Come to me.  Get away with me and you'll recover your life.
I'll show you how to take a real rest.
Walk with me and work with me - 
watch how I do it.
I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.
Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."

-the words of Jesus in Matthew 11: 28-30
(the Message translation.  Line breaks and emphasis added)

What does "living freely and lightly" mean to you.  I welcome your comments.
