Just as we frequently clean up our homes, we also need to clean up our lives. There are times we really need to get rid of stuff that no longer serves us – and be unafraid to let go. You may find all sorts of reasons or excuses not to do this, and continue in allowing your internal dialogue to keep that very tight hold over you.
Cleaning up our homes is physical, whilst cleaning up our lives is spiritual. Cleaning up our lives spiritually is far deeper, as it is cleaning up our hearts – the lies, the hate, the envy, the rivalry, the pain – those bad thoughts about others. Cleaning out those very things that clogs up our hearts, preventing us from progressing. You have to make it important enough for your mental, emotional and physical well-being. It makes no essence in fussing about your home, when yet your heart is filled with clutter.
When things begin to hinder our lives, we need to consider decluttering our homes as well as our lives – in cleaning up your act.
Some of us are so engrossed in trying to make things happen or lamenting over things we do not have. Continually searching for those things that we think may meet our needs, and make us happy. The more we search the unhappier we become.
Only recently, I was in conversation with a commuter, who shared with me that they were going blind in both eyes. Having gone through multiple consultations, unconventional medicines, they are now certain, that their problem is ‘beyond Science’.
Does it really take such stark conversations to remind ourselves how fortunate we are? I say ‘Yes, most definitely’. It certainly made me stop to think yet again, how ungrateful I can be.
This is a stark reminder, to practise sincere gratitude more regularly, for those very things that help us to function daily, such as our ears, our eyes, our mouth, our legs, or even a sound mind (as so many people in our communities are losing theirs).
We really have a lot to be grateful for, as ‘No king is saved by the size of his army’.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
When God orders changes to occur, chaos ensues, as struggle breaks out between materialism and spiritualism. For decades, materialism was allowed to reign, in promoting a material culture.
Materialism was happy in taking full responsibility, dominating whilst promoting technology, economic wealth and advancement in science.
Materialism prospered globally, though selfishly destroying our oceans, our land, our food, and our mind, all for its own personal gain. After a series of global setbacks, struggles, wars, greed, caused by the materialistic culture, the next stage of civilisation, is to give spiritualism the reigns again.
As we move forwards, the responsibility will be bestowed to spiritualism, as a civilisation that is to become more God-centered, spiritual way of thinking. We should not lose sight, of the writhe caused by materialistic gains.
More of us are leaning towards spirituality, and that which leads to increasing happiness and prosperity. No wonder things are not going well in our lives, as we selfishly continue only thinking of our own convenience.
Personally, I welcome a world in pursuit of spiritual wisdom and values, rather than material gains. As we are all fully aware, material gains, does not necessarily lead to peace nor happiness.
When we think of nourishment we think mainly of what we eat. Nourishment is far deeper and greater, as it is, all the things that we consume. It is the words we use, the programmes we watch, the music we listen to, the people we surround ourselves with, how we communicate, our behaviour, our attitude, our values, far more when we stop to think. All these are a form of nourishment, which continues to feed our souls in either a negative or positive light.
What is the purpose of life, if you continue ingesting those very things that causes you distress, to remain unhappy, to hate, lack of energy, or your ill-health?
Scientists have proven time and time again, that if we continue feeding the soil that produces our food with damaging fertilisers, it is only matter of time before the effects are evident. The results being evident in more ways than one. In our food, in our bodies, in our environment etc. This is precisely the same thing that is likely to occur, when you continue consuming those very things that demotes rather than promote your spiritual growth.
Nourishment not only supplies us with what is necessary for us to live in good health, it is vital for our spiritual growth, for us to cherish, for us to strengthen, a help in crises, to project change of attitude, keeps us alive, for our family, for our community. There is a far deeper and greater understanding.
When we continue to nourish our souls, we are being given the support in keeping upright, in preventing us from falling so hard in time of crises. An undernourished body prolongs the natural healing process.
We should spend more time thinking about those very things we consume, which are noticeably harmful, to you, our families, our communities, our environment, and life. It is only a matter of time before the results are inescapably visible.
In supporting you own plant life, ensure that your soil is nourished, with nutrients that enables your growth.
