Spring cleaning

I've been organizing some drawers in my room. You know when you start cleaning in a particular place and that leads you to other things and the next thing you know all your house is turned upside down? And then you get lazy and things stay out of their places until you've regained courage to sort them out.

So my room is full of opened boxes, nothing's in its right place at the moment. But I'm throwing things away and that's the main thing. It's Spring cleaning even though if you look outside the window it's been raining a lot.

Have you been cleaning your house and your soul?

Song of the day: Unfinished Sympathy by Massive Attack
I adore this song, it's a master piece, it's not just a song, it's a whole dimension. It's not melodic or something that stays in your head but it's fantastic.

i spring cleaned the living room. i don't care about the other rooms, because i don't live there that much. Same goes for my soul. xx

I am having a BIG spring cleaning because I'm probably leaving. So I am parting with more than I normally would...and finding I'd collected more than I thought I had.

LOL Same here, my room constantly looks like I've been cleaning it; not because it's clean all the time, but because I start out to clean one thing or the other and things are placed here and there all the time :)

devil mood!
this was me today.
it started with wanting to shift one side table out to make space for my photo studio.
so i shifted it.
then i needed a place to put it in.
so i shifted a chair to fit this table in.
then the chair needed a place.
so i spent most of today redesigning my room.
(beause once i rearranged it, then i was inspired to recreate it)
but all it all, ts been a good day :)

Chloe: The important thing is what's directly around us, that's what has an effect on our souls, right?

Stephanie: I can imagine. I've been collecting too much, I noticed it yesterday.

Miss Iyer: Well, at least we're trying, right? Gradually we'll clean everything!

Mahima: lol that's funny. But I think it must be good to move things around and shift the energy that they contain, preventing stagnation.

I don't normally do spring cleaning, but we are actually having to clean out our storage room, and got rid of a lot. It's cool to get rid of what's no longer important.

i have been going through PILES
of clothes! thrwoing away stuff in my bedroom so that we can see our floor again! : )

Devil Mood said...

Kimananda: I know, it feels great! Liberating!

Holychaos: I'm sure you'll feel so much better afterwards, even if it's difficult to begin.

i try and possess fewer things, that way, they're mostly organized and there no need to clean frequently.

the soul, my dear friend - i believe it is fundamentally blemishless, and therefore there is no question of cleaning it :)

Devil Mood said...

Dharmabum: Wonderful thought that is :) We should probably clean the minds so it reflects the soul better.
