I can’t get things done when there’s clutter around me. It makes me feel scattered and a little crazy. For instance, before I start cooking I have to wash any dishes in the sink and clear the table. The shoes, backpacks and jackets piled by the door to have to be put in their places and the counters must be wiped. If my workspace isn’t tidy and clear I’ll dither and wander and work haphazardly. When the space is cluttered, I can’t create or produce. When the space is clear and clean, the cooking and nourishment can begin. It’s like cleaning the slate.
That’s how meditation works too. When we meditate we’re clearing the clutter in our heads. When we gently quiet and still our minds through regular meditation practice, we create and allow space for the creativity, production, and nourishment to flow. It’s like cleaning the slate. A regular meditative practice is an important part of a healthy life.
