Rollercoaster Ride Again
Tuesday, August 24, 2010
I had two horrible days. It's like all the good was sucked out of my life and I was living in Hell for a while. I'm feeling better today though. Of course I had to read a message from God to my sister (via facebook) that said, "You have to know what you do NOT want to truly know what you DO want." Basically, we're given Hellish situations so that we enjoy Paradise a little more.
So, lesson learned? I think so. I'm seeing a coralation between the amount of junk in my house and the amount of junk in my trunk. The more we aquire the less money we seem to have. I also read a buddhist parable about a man who was missing his cows, the buddhists discussed how having those cows created suffering and weighed whether it was better to suffer with the cows or not to suffer without. So... I'm thinking I have some purging to do. Actually.. a lot of purging to do. I'm not sure where to start, or how to start really.. I've been kind of doing it for the past few months by getting rid of a lot of things we don't need, but I've also been aquiring more things at the same time, sometimes at a faster rate than what I do to get rid of things.
Kind of like my weight... I do healthy habits to lose weight but I'll eat a bunk of junk food and counter the positive effects.
I don't want to live the life of a monk, but I need to reduce a lot of things.
I suppose I could go back to FLY lady... Every day there's decluttering involved.
Would Could Should... Wonder what lesson I'm missing there?
