Peace Is An Uncluttered Mind

by Suzanne on June 20, 2012

Do you feel life zooming past faster than ever?  And is it carrying an infinity of information overload with it? 

 

I don’t know about you, but life’s traveling too fast for me lately.  Days rush by in a blur of tasks never quite completed.  Information flies into my life from every direction.  Perhaps one-tenth of the things I hear and see have any lasting value.  I feel overwhelmed and lost.

 

I’ve reached the point where the constant noise of the world is dragging me to a halt, inundating my mind to the bursting point.

 

It’s time to declutter.  Time to rid my mind of the buzzing, distracting accumulation of Nothing.  To pause and reflect.

 

Tonight I’ll select a favorite CD.  Lighting a candle, I’ll gaze past the darkness into the living flame.  With each deep inhalation, the aroma of unconditional love will rise from the rose oil anointing my hands.  I’ll allow the healing energy of music to declutter my mind.  And knit the raveled tendrils of my connection to the Universe. 

 

 

 

 Flame of Peace

 

 

 

Life is beautiful, uncluttered and clear.

 

I Am Peace.

 

 

 

What do you do to unclutter your mind?  Please share in the comments.

Days – how about years? I keep begging for the fast forward button to be disconnected because it feels like someone is standing on it these days. Too much of everything from everywhere. I’ve come to accept what I can do on any given day as enough. I’ve taken to blocking out the outside world for the most part, catching up on important things on designated days. And decluttering and rerouting efforts to things that are truly important to me and trying to do so as peacefully as possible. My hope is for you to find much serenity and tranquility in these crazy times.

I laughed at the image of someone standing on the fast forward button. Oh yes, we’re traveling the same road, TC! I’m working on accepting that everything won’t get done around here, and being okay with it. But it’s a constant struggle not to get down on myself for not being able to be Superwoman and whisk everything together in ten minutes.

Today I did manage to sand and prime three drawer fronts for my kitchen cabinets. That task has been creeping forward day by day as I set up my schedule. That’s the hardest part of the job – just getting started.

Thanks for sending wishes of serenity and tranquility. I send joy and peace back to you, TC.
