creating boundless space in our lives

Clutter

Leave a comment

Clutter is all around us. We are preoccupied with things to do and think about. We feel empty inside and so we try to fill up this lack with the things of the world. We fill our minds with worthless thoughts, our houses with useless stuff, and our lives with harmful emotions. We are drowning in things and yet we don’t feel satisfied.

Here’s a thought: let’s get rid of the clutter and bring space into our lives. How do we do that? We start by observing things, people and situations as they unfold without taking part in the action. We become detached and so we feel the essence of people and objects. We notice the beauty of each moment and observe stillness that is in, between, and around the situation.

When we leave things as they are, we become aware of space. This awareness comes from deep within us that is untouched by what is happening around us. This stillness connects us with the power of the universe and the intelligence in each being, so that right action happens at the right time with the right people. We have given the universe the space it needs to work its magic. We realize that we are not here to control the world but to be conscious of the world–to enjoy the flux of things. We experience the joy of being that is natural and spontaneous.
