I took a parenting class, years ago, from a very well-known, recognized Family Counselor in a city close to me. One of the things that really stood out and I remember from the ongoing classes a group of us would attend was that “A Sense of Order” was one of the (numbered) items necessary for Good Mental Health. That made such good sense to me. Now that I have learned the concepts of Feng Shui it really makes sense. It’s hard to think clearly in a state of outer confusion. Our outer world truly does reflect our inner world. I have even heard that our hand-writing reflects many things about us and if we are feeling overwhelmed and our surroundings are unorganized we can help change this even in slowing down and painstakingly making our hand writing appear more legible and neat. Funny concept, isn’t it! I tried it and I think it did make me slow down and try to be more mindful of my actions. To be accountable for my circumstances. A clean, orderly home (that is something we have the power to create) really does free our minds from the constant state of disorderliness, stagnation and even depression.
These are some amazing rocks I found outdoors in various places, except for the green turquoise one I bought in a rock shop in Sedona, AZ for my mother. In moving into a small home, very small, I had to move a table I inherited when my mother passed away, whose leaves drop down, making it very slender, into the bathroom of all places….directly across from the toilet! I didn’t put the rocks on it at first but had them in a deep window sill in my bedroom in front of a row of books. I later got the idea to display them on this narrow table. Now they are something I see and rearrange, just ever so slightly, every day. I felt this photo is a great depiction of a sense of order, the title of today’s post. They make me happy when I see them every day…lined up like little sentinels, showing me the beauty and art to be found in nature.
As part of this assignment, I am to challenge another blogger to do this as well. (They can accept or refuse of course and I sure don’t want to put more pressure on others. We are all so busy and this blogging is all so very personal, how we choose to do it. ) So, today, I will challenge a blogger I found on the BUGs wall whose blog I found extremely interesting!
