When you walk past the sink, and it is clean
Are you the person who drops the spoon in
Or are you the one that walks by and cleans it?
Do you only wash it if someone else is there
or do you leave it for someone else to take on your work?
Are we really getting away with anything when we try not to do something?
We try so hard to get out of this, get out of that.
It is the truth as it is.
You either do or you don’t.
Some wait until the sink is full
And others wash and dry as they go.
Some keep the “Oh I have to do this, to do that, before I can relax”,
When cleaning up as you go along
Cleans up your mind as you think along, speak to another, or even watch a program on TV.
That spoon really tells its own story.
Do you hold onto your stuff?
Do you let it go?
Do you take things on right off
Or do you wait until you have piled up so much stuff inside
And you keep waiting for the day to clean it all up at once?
Do you just eat your best every day
Or are you the one who will diet tomorrow and eat everything in sight today?
Are you a planner or does everything all of a sudden happen to you?
Each of these types of people, they are all of us.
Trying to say one thing when we are another is our biggest bluff
And the blaming of others, for who we are, has also been the bigger bluff.
Once you clean up as you go along
You are just telling yourself the truth as you live your life
and those who threw it in and walk right by it
Are the “pilers” of everything else.
They will not tell you first off what they actually mean
And they will only come clean when they are caught
And maybe not even then.
Start washing the spoon in the clean sink
And you will find, you start finishing all the little things that start to take on weight much sooner.
When you walk by, stop yourself and remind yourself it is your job too.
No using others for you
and you will stop running from tasks and either decide to do them or not.
Honesty isn’t so far away.
It is as simple as a dirty spoon, you either clean it or you don’t.
Love isn’t so far away.
You either share it or you don’t.
Truth is always around.
And Purity is the cleanliness of your soul.
Clean the spoon,
Clear your mind, and go on to the next thing.
Clutter is man-made, not a natural part of us.
Clean purifies as you cleanse.
Cleansing is the weightlessness of our days, our thoughts, and how we are with others.
Anything else is the delaying of our self-love until we finish all our tasks that we walk by.
