Clearing Space for Clearer Thinking
Lilly Cat has made a bit of a nest of my desk, but I have to take responsibility for the materials with which she constructed it. My desk is a mess, as is the rest of this writing room and pretty much, well, the house.
It's a lot like my brain.
We started the cleaning process yesterday. First, we cleared and rearranged the bedroom, and then we created a much needed meditation and prayer space at one end of that room.
Good start. I need a clear space to focus my mind.
All of this is so intertwined, isn't it?
I am writing from the Cleveland Clinic, having driven a friend here for some tests. Staying meditative in such a large hospital is still far beyond my capacity.
How about you? Is your meditation space literal or have your managed to clear your mind and heart enough that you carry it with you?
