Your mind is just like your house.
If there is clutter and chaos everywhere you can barely move around in there.
Your mind is just the same. When you’re thinking a mile a minute it’s very much like you’re living inside a house that is far to cluttered.
There is stuff everywhere, and even though it may seem to be orderly, there is still no room to breathe.
If you’re in a house like this, then there is no room to spread out and create new projects.
The exact same thing is true in your mind.
It becomes incredibly difficult to be creative when there is no room left for it, in a mind that is going at such an incredible pace.
In Minimalism There Is Peace
The reason so many people and cultures are drawn towards a minimalist approach to their homes and décor is that; perfection is not achieved when there is nothing left to add, but, when there is nothing left to take away.
The most peaceful and serene settings in nature are the simplest.
A perfectly still pond is quite often referenced as the epitome of peace in the mind and of the spirit.
To allow your mind to calm, focus and become creative enough to provide you with the answers you seek in your life you must eliminate the clutter, chaos and confusion.
With just a little thought we know this to be true.
This is and has been the goal of all the great thinkers, philosophers and monks throughout the ages.
Then, when you want to convey your ideas and thoughts to others it becomes increasingly difficult when your thoughts are all crowding together to get the next available space on your tongue.
So, how do you clear your mind so that it resembles the calm serenity of a Zen Garden?
The technique is quite simple and easy. In fact, it’s so easy that you can literally go from cluttered to clean in 60 seconds or less.
Here it is.
