THE BIG TIDY UP

Leave a comment


When I was a kid, I can remember a children’s book I owned entitled: “”The Big Tidy Up”. It was well used and very worn. There were several torn pages and the inside front cover had green crayon scribbled on it by it’s previous owner. Despite its wear and tear I always remember it being a favorite read. Essentially the book was about a little girl that took part in the cleaning up and cleaning out of her very messy bedroom. I can remember using the book as a step by step guide when I was told to clean my room. I would actually follow each page like an instructional manual with slight adaptation to each listed task. In fond memory of that book comes the title of my latest article. During Spring, many seem to participate in a frenzy of cleaning projects. Sometimes the projects are small, such as, going through closets and donating items. Other projects involve bigger and more organized efforts like renting dumpsters and cleaning out basements. Ultimately though, all cleaning projects have one thing in common, creating space. When the desire appears to grow, change , or evolve we ultimately need space in order to fulfill this transformation process. The same can be true of AWAKENING. Everything must be cleaned out in order to create space. Our entire lives we collect concepts, thoughts, beliefs, and opinions about everything including and not limited to people, places, and things.  But when we awaken to the truth of what we really are everything changes radically and it all falls away. Shiny materialistic items lose there luster. Earned awards, degrees, and certificates of accomplishment once revered and coveted are now just pieces of paper hanging on the wall in glass frames. Reputation is not cared or bothered with and even money is no longer a concern. All of these things once so important literally fall away. Identification is no longer needed. Trying to realize, understand, and accept this when you are still spiritually seeking is like trying to explain the concept of fire to someone that has never seen it before….not really possible. Best advice I ever heard was from Jed McKenna, “Come see it for yourself!”
