“Human beings have the capacity to learn to want almost any conceivable material object. Given, then, the emergence of a modern industrial culture capable of producing almost anything, the time is ripe for opening the storehouse of infinite need!…It is the modern Pandora’s box, and its plagues are loose upon the world.” – Jules Henry.
The more stuff you have, the heavier you feel. It’s true. Have you ever felt just mentally drained at teven the thought of having to move? Or have you ever been on a trip where you had to lug around your heavy suitcase?
Whether you are aware of it or not, clutter creates distractions and requires mental energy that you have no way of knowing how much – until you get rid of it. The less stuff you have, the less you have to dig through to find the stuff you need, the less time you have to spend on maintenance, and maybe the less time you have to work to earn money to buy those things.
Take this opportunity to go through you cabinets and donate food, dishes, furniture and sports equipment. Books can be given away or sold on Amazon.com. Furniture and other items can be sold on Craigslist or donated. Garage sales are perfect for those smaller things you have lying around. In a few hours, you can arrange for a pickup for a charity to haul it away and take a nice tax deduction for yourself. It is a great way to clear your space and your mind and give life to your unused things.
Having stuff around that you don’t use or need fuels negative energy…. Negative energy can affect they way you think about yourself and your life. Why? Because negative energy breeds negative thoughts.
Thoughts are what propels us. Negative thoughts propel us backwards by breeding negative things in life – poor relationships, poor health, financial distress. Positive thoughts, on the other hand, propel us forward by nurturing optimal health, financial abundance, and rich relationships. Make others happy for allowing them to get something that they wanted that you had but really had no use for. Good karma comes back around.
