At times it seems that I am always rushing here and there, busy with more things than I really have time for, and trying to figure out what needs to be dealt with before other things, and consequently not getting too much done in any timely fashion. I stay up too late to fit more things into the day, or I stay awake running things over in my head when I should be sleeping. Either way I lose sleep. At times my body will give me a couple of signals that I am on a slippery slope, such as an ache or two in the back or shoulder or a headache. You probably can understand that. If I ignore those little clues they get a bit bigger. Somehow I get to a spot where I have to pay attention.
My house is a good indication of where my mind is at. At times its cluttered, things don't end up in thier place, little chores get put off, and soon its a major thing. I have to roll up my sleeves, and just get it done and my mind is still again. I can "work" through a lot of things while I work through my house!
And then can I surround myself with those things that calm me, the things that are soothing and calming to my eye and to my soul.
Every home should have a sunny window, a pot of flowers, and a clear path to the stillness within.
