I’m thinking it’s going to BE hard for some to swallow this idea. Especially BEcause it was [okay, it still is] hard for me.
Even to grasp.
Overwhelm is all the too much that covers up my NOT enoughness.
It is worry. And it dresses itself up sometimes as my second and third thoughts.
Eliminating it seems an outright impossibility.
After all, I am living Here, Now, in this World.
The one where stimulation comes at me like a firehose. Even a taste is overwhelming, right?!
So here’s what I am thinking: Eliminate Everything Then Add Only What Is Essential.
Of course, In Real Life eliminating everything is NOT really DOable, except that really it is.
In my mind.
I can DO amazing things there. In my mind.
I go for the biggest things first, a little like cleaning in the Wee Cottage.
Somethings have to go outside. Most everything needs to move a little.
Ultimately, I “eliminate” all places for dirt and, well, golly, the ants and spiders…
And I clean.
When I bring things back it’s different.
I’ve learned to DO this inside myself.
To “blow the stink out” and let the clean air in.
Funny thing is, it works BEcause I BElieve it CAN.
And that’s enough…
I love you, Currie
