Spring cleaning, spiritual cleaning
As spring blossoms fresh and new, the dreaded task of “spring cleaning” beckons us. It might be seen as an opportunity or a threat, depending on your perspective. The process of de-cluttering our shelves, cabinets, and email boxes frees up space (opportunity). Sometimes, however, it means letting go (the threat) of treasures, memories, and even connections with people.
The dawning of spring invites us to a spiritual cleaning, as well. Time to clear out and make space for a new way of being in the world. The choices are many:
• To be attentive or to be distracted
• To be blessing or to be blaming
• To be available or to be preoccupied
• To be distant or to be intimate
• To be with or to be ahead
• To be compassionate or to be right
Gifted with this present moment, how are you going to BE?
