Decluttering the Mind

While I was clearing up all the old clothes, unused items, some toys and some kids wear, I was feeling happy, as it created more space, and fresh air to move in freely, and I felt good and relaxed to do some work in a neat and clean place, and at the same time, I found some place where I could give away, so that somebody else can use it.

I keep clearing it every now and then so that clutter does not get accumulated, and ensured that the place is always neat and tidy. While I was thinking about this, I felt, a similar thing can be done with our minds too.

Our minds too are filled with so many thoughts, some of which are disempowering us, something that happened years ago, we remember that so vividly, and its there for a long time, because of which our relationships are hampered, we find it difficult to forget, and we do not want to let go and move on, for it’s a painful experience, and it does not help us.

Our minds too keeps accumulating everything, from our daily experiences, and some times we forget to clear it up, and it becomes a problem for us, we find difficult to relax, and we feel bound from within, holding on so many negative thoughts.

Life becomes difficult as we move along, because we are carrying unnecessary load in our minds, the best way to free ourselves is to declutter the mind, remove all that is not worth to be stored in the mind, empty our minds, and replace it with new empowering thoughts, let go off of all those things that is becoming a burden, and the moment we do, we feel much better, and travel light.

I have learnt that the best way to keep our minds free is to practice meditation, every day, and train our minds to think only empowering thoughts which are positive, motivating and energizing.

Be Happy !
