Clutter

That clutter in our house is in fact clutter in our mind too.

We are subconsciously aware of that clutter and it is a mental distraction, it is like a weight on our shoulders slowing us down. The thought of sorting it out hangs on us.

Having a clear out allows us more space to live, more peace, more calm, to see the things that we cherish instead of shit we bought that we don’t need, it gives us freedom.

Most importantly, de-cluttering frees the mind and that is a big thing for any of us. It lifts that weight that we’ve been dragging around. It calms the mind, and that then allows us space in our heads to do things that matter.

Fighting the waves

A couple of years ago I wrote about swimming against the tide, apart from Salmon who swim upstream to mate, there is no point to the battle.

King Canute famously sat on his throne at the water’s edge trying to prove his divine power by stopping the waves, of course, he failed.

We fight the ‘waves’ of life when instead we could surrender and allow life to take us. That does not mean resignation or giving up. It just means stopping the negativity that resistance and fighting cases.

True peace as a human comes from surrendering to life not from fighting things.
