Break for a minute and refresh your spirit. Cleanse the heart and mind. For without cleansing comes a buildup of suffocating grime and dust. This is true for all things, no matter what it is. Just as you need to clean your physical home of dust and clutter, so do we all need to clean our own inner house. We must learn the sphere of humility, and perform the due diligence of letting go of our fears, our wants, our guilt and most often.. our pride.
Many may say that pride makes a man, it throttles him forward to perform his work with a sense of purpose, it motivates him to be the best at what he does. This is often true, but pride can inhibit a man as well. It can keep him from experiencing a world foreign to his ambitions and ideals, a world that may be just as noble as his own.
We often hear the phrase “swallow your pride.” But, for many, pride is a hard pill to swallow. In fact it may be too big to consume, in which case it consumes the man and envelopes him in a sphere of limited vision; into a tunnel of one-sided thought, a mental prison of sorts limited by ego.
When the day comes that a human being must cleanse his house, and he is torn by tossing out the many things he’s kept for ages, He must make a choice. In this critical moment we can find solace if we only keep in our house that which bares the light of spirit.
We must all remember one simple rule when cleansing.. Simply, let it go. If we do not let go of what our ego holds, of what we have collected for eons, we will one day be suffocated by a horde of negative emotion, self-aggrandized ideals, and self-righteous ideas. This will be the death of spirit, and the end of man.
In this anthropocentric world we inhabit, as time speeds by with no intention of slowing down for those lacking to keep up.. We must forego the demands of our ego and instead nurture the divine spirit within and around us all. Our world should visit the sphere of humility often, and cleanse this divine house… Letting go is also letting in; opening the door to a new and unrealized beauty and awakening
