And to top that, half of that bookshelf, because the two lower shelves are occupied by hubby and his stuff. But yeah. I got another item ticked of my to-do-list of this mini-cleanse, which felt good. And I got another armful of books to donate, since I’m not going to read them, and apparently none else in the family will either.
As you can tell, I am not as disciplined this time around as when I ran my original #cleanse4expansion-project a year ago. And I think I know the difference. This time around, the driving force is logic. It’s a sense of “. It’s been 6 months since I finished off the project, and if I do a month at the beginning of every year, it will never get as bad as it was when I started out in 2015.“. Whereas a year ago it was definitely just something that came through and to me, that it was what I needed to do. Hence, last year, no feeling of resistance, it was just something to do, that I knew was mine to do. This year, much more resistance, and “Ah, nah, not today, I’ll get it done tomorrow, and if this mini-cleanse takes more than January, so be it…“.
The interesting part is – I can get things done either way. But having tasted what it feels like to act on that which comes to and through me, as opposed to the logically and rationally wise thing to do, I would much rather go for the first, anytime! So the question that pops into my head is: what’s mine to to now, as it’s so obviously not this mini-cleanse? Am I listening to the soft voice within, or am I drowning it out with my rational and logical thinking (seemingly taking the form of a large brass-band drowning out any chance of a soft voice to be heard… until there is a moment of stillness!)?
This blog is a part of the #cleanse4expansion-project initiated by Helena Roth as a part of the Create the impossible-online course that started January 11th, 2015. The aim of the project was to do a physical and digital cleanse, to enable spiritual expansion, and also to get 500 000 page views on the blog. The course ended on April 10th, and after that Helena embarked on another 90-day stint of #cleanse4expansion. Day 90 + 90 occurred on July 9th, and as of then, only occasional posts will turn up here. Perhaps. Or perhaps not. Who knows? However, this post is part of the mini-cleanse in January 2016, with a fixed agenda.
