I don’t often do sessions at my home but for some types of work it doesn’t seem right to do it at the office; I do multiple types of bodywork, some of which have more to do with spirituality than physical healing, and I actually choose my living spaces so that they can double as “temples” for special sessions. Anyway, I had to clean for tomorrow’s session…took pretty much every spare moment of the last week. At least it looks like a house rather than a lair now. lol. No, actually it looks pretty good. I find myself wishing I had maybe one more small closet; if I had that much more space there would actually be room for all my current stuff here, but this place is by far the best I’ve ever lived in – no major complaints, even the size works reasonably well. The problem I’m having is that cleaning regularly, even when I try to break it into small, manageable tasks for each day, is just too much to do. I suppose if I’m truthful with myself it’s a matter of priorities. I want a clean house very much but there are things I value more.
My top five essential daily tasks – prayer, meditation, practicing music, studying, and working/managing money without excess drama or stress – are actually more than enough to keep me busy 24 hours a day, and if I do them I see changes in my life. Frankly I’m not willing to take time away from any of those processes in order to clean the house, which doesn’t really improve things over time. If I knock myself out and spend 12 hours out of the week cleaning I can keep the place looking good…but there’s no evolution there; there’s no growth, no change, no improvement. The most I can do is maintain, and maintaining takes more time than it’s really worth. Not sure what to do about this.
