I don't know about you, but as I grow older I have less and less interest in all this stuff I've accumulated. My house feels so cluttered at times it drives me nuts and I feel like I can't breathe. I'll go through it, clean it out, and find that I'm just making room for more stuff to be brought in! If there is empty space in my house, my family will just fill it up with something.
I think I could give away most of what I have and never miss it for more than a few minutes. I could live in a smaller place too. Then when I wanted to go somewhere, I'd just get up and go. Clutter, houses, stuff - I find sometimes is a weight - to keep you from doing other things.
You think that maybe it's a sleeping sage in me that's trying to get out? You know, so that I can move to a mountain top and think? Stuff keeps you from thinking. Yet again, does Chatty need more time to think? (Lol) Hmmm, not exactly. Honestly, though, I long for a day when I can live more simply.
It's funny, when I take time to meditate I feel better and I feel so free. Breathe out the heaviness let in the lightness. Freeing.
These last two days have been drop dead gorgeous here in Georgia. Anywhere you look your view is like a beautiful oil painting. Pinks, whites, greens - the sun - feeling the wind - working in the garden - it has been heaven. I mean it is beautiful - pine pollen and all!
