Well, after lazed enough during my semester holidays, i finally got the urge to write.
I was happily sweeping the floor this afternoon, trying to help out in house chores, when suddenly something struck my mind. I just realised the difference of sweeping the floor using a broom together with a dustpan compared to sweeping with just the broom itself.
Imagine yourself sweeping the floor.You have a dustpan with you. You tend to sweep and gather the dust in a small pile and sweep them into the dustpan u have with you. This action is repeated until u finish sweeping the whole house.
But what if you don't have a dustpan with you? Probability is that you'll continue sweeping and compiling the dust until u finish with the whole house ending at your back door.
If u try this out yourself in practical, you'll realised that it is so much easier to sweep with the company of a dustpan. As the dust were swept into the pan from time to time, u feel it's easier and less of burden to sweep the floor. Besides, it's cleaner that way because you don't have to keep track of so much dust flying around as you continue sweeping through the whole house.
So what is it that's so interesting about the theory behind the sweeping process?
In real life, the dust represents the problems and troubles we're facing in our daily life. And the broom, is us, while the sweeping process, is the way we handle our problems and troubles. As for the dustpan, it's any way of us to release the tension and stress caused by the problems. It could be by writing, sharing with someone, chatting or reading.
When a problem hit us directly in our face, sometimes it's unlikely to close one eye towards it and act as if nothing has happened. These life challenges are ineveitable and may be the cause of burden and constraint in us. Many would keep and keep and keep their problems deep down in their hearts and mind not knowing the importance of releasing them once in a while. At one point, when the burden got so heavy that they couldn't handle them anymore, their system break down.
If we had observed the theory of sweeping closely, we solve the problems in stages and once they're solved, we close the file and release (or even flush) them out of our system. Wouldn't our life be so much lighter that way? Everytime you face with a problem, you solve them in stages and release them in stages. Let go the past and hold no grudge, for every experiences you have gone through has made who you are today. Concentrate on the present. It's more energy savvy and 'cleaner' to your (mind and body) system this way.
So, that's my theory behind sweeping the floor. Hehe. Hope u have enjoyed reading :)
