"Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone." Pablo Picasso
I don’t believe that the majority of us sit around and think about what will happen back here on earth after we die. Many do focus on the afterlife and whatever the perception of that looks like. However, do we really put any thought into what is left behind when we are no longer here. Who will be able to break the code of the multitude of passwords to get into all the precious things we protect with those secret phrases or nonsensical combination of letters and numbers and special characters? What will happen to the tons of “things” that were so important and meaningful to us but may not have any meaning to anyone else? For instance, I hang onto things like cards that people have given me where they wrote loving thoughts. Those only have meaning to me and the ones who wrote them. Yet, there they are inside a suitcase that I lug with me everywhere I go because I cannot bear to toss them. I am a minimalist and have let go of pretty much all material things – well except sentimental cards, stuffed animals and too many pairs of shoes. I think of all those people I know who have garages stuffed full of things, most of which are in boxes that haven’t been opened in years. What do you think is going to happen to those precious items when you are no longer here? I have thought a lot lately of our earth planet and the resources we use up daily. Don’t get me wrong; I am not judging anyone for having material possessions and especially if it brings you comfort and a sense of pleasure to surround yourself with it. I am just typing out loud to express what it seems that few are addressing in our world. We seem to be suffering from a hoarding crisis but no one wants to talk about it. It’s like having that family member that we are afraid to say anything to but everyone is thinking “why does Aunt Millie own ten blenders?” Even as I write this, I am looking around at the small room I am staying in and shaking my head at the fact that I have two suitcases full of clothes in here and another one in the car. I’m asking myself why my car looks like the Beverly Hillbillies as I drive down the road. Why am I contributing to the waste that is happening in our society? This is a wake-up call for me to do my part in stopping the excess waste and hopefully lightening the burden of what someone will have to figure out what to do with when I am no longer here.
Dear Angels, I think about how it used to be “back in the day” when the clothes I owned could be hung on the back of a door and fit in a single dresser drawer. I did not feel that I was missing out on anything. I had enough. Yet here I sit with so much excess that it makes me nauseous to look at it. My focus now is on the sustainability of our planet and my heart aches at the waste that is piled high in our landfill sites while we cry about the price of everything as it continually rises. When will enough be enough?
Dear Ones, taking a self-inventory is a huge part of figuring out what your life is all about. Do not be so hard on yourself as you do so, however. This is all a decluttering process of letting go so you can feel the freedom that comes with detachment. What you are feeling is the weight of having excess baggage and is really only a metaphor for what happens in life when there is excess energy attached to the 3D world. You are now shifting into a 5D energy field and all that “stuff” does not fit in there. It is like the suitcase that is over full. You force it to zip up, then complain about how heavy it is. Would not the better solution be to only have what will fit into it? Do you not see that you fill your lives full of excess every day? What can you leave out of the suitcase? What is bogging you down and tethering you to the heavy energy? This is for each of you to figure out, Dear Ones. Only you can decide how to deal with those “things” that you are so attached to, whether that be habits or material possessions. Only you know when enough is enough for you. Only you can decide what your footprint is on your earth and how much of her resources you are consuming and that you can be comfortable in so doing.
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to declutter and lighten my load in my life and in the Angelmobile.
