How cluttered is your life?

“Most people’s lives are cluttered up with things: material things, things to do, things to think about. Their lives are like the history of humanity, which Winston Churchill defined as “one damn thing after another”. Their minds are filled up with the clutter of thoughts, one thought after another. minds are filled up with the clutter of thoughts

This is the dimension of object consciousness that is many people’s predominant reality, and that is why their lives are so out of balance. Object consciousness needs to be balanced by space consciousness for sanity to return to our planet and for humanity to fulfill its destiny.

The arising of space consciousness is the next stage in the evolution of humanity. Be aware of your breathing. Notice how this takes attention away from your thinking and creates space.”

It’s kind of a heavy couple of paragraphs, but it speaks to the need to fill our heads with thoughts, and our physical space with things.

Staying in the present moment and not allowing yourself to be encumbered by “stuff” is what makes a person feel happy and peaceful.

Most of us treat the present moment as if it were something to be gotten through on the way to something better. It’s seen as a means to an end, as if this moment were less important or fulfilling than the moment when… you get that new job, move to a bigger house, marry your perfect partner, etc.

We aren’t happy with what we have, so we look past what we have and desire something better. But shortly after we get that thing, its luster fades and we’re on to the next “must-have” that promises to make us happy.

De-clutter Your Mind Today!

And finally find the peace and quiet that’s always been there…

With the help of our 8 Minute Deep Meditation!

In the process, we lose sight of the precious moment we are living in. We fail to see the subtle beauty. Or we are in too much of a hurry to appreciate a kitten’s snoring and we don’t slow down enough to fully appreciate the drawing a child has made. We are so absorbed in finding the ways and means to obtain another “thing”; we look forward to experiences; and of course, the other half of our thoughts is in the past… trying to relive past glory, wanting to undo pain, and wishing that mistakes could have been avoided.wishing that mistakes could have been avoided

We still aren’t here. I don’t want to get into too heavy of a discussion here on our purpose and our true nature – I just want to put the idea in your head that “less is more” – less things, less thoughts. The space between them allows us to be fully present and living in the moment.

You can start by de-cluttering your physical space. Whenever you’re hesitant about donating or throwing out something that you don’t use and doesn’t give you joy, just remember, you had to pay for that item once through your hard work – and you are STILL paying for it now, with energy, and with even more work because you need a place to store that thing.

Create more space in your home by getting rid of things – and you’ll feel physically and energetically lighter and more free!

Then, in meditation, practice de-cluttering your mind.

Try this: Use the breath to create space between thoughts. Let’s say you’re sitting and observing your thoughts. As a thought finishes (for example, “I need to get to the post office today”, bring your full attention to your breath. Inhale fairly loudly through your nose – listen to the breath, drown out any thoughts; exhale – again, listen to it and feel it fully – and then let your mind start rambling on again. Allow only one thought, though, before you return to the breath focus.

This is a great way to realize that you can have space between thoughts; that your thoughts don’t have to be a nonstop torrent that goes from the moment you wake up to the moment you fall asleep.

And in that space, there is peace and quiet.
