Personal environment for protest
Alchemy is the process of gold plating. Internal alchemy (personal transformation) occurs when we clear inner and outer clutter and let go of things that are no longer serving us well. It creates a balance and space, a place that feeds the satisfaction that I think is a real success. ~ Laurie Buchanan
You know how it is. The demands of life, work, family and commitments require many other things but are not urgent. Finally, you realize you can not endure that you can not do things in the "I'll take it sometime" category. This is often the case where we do housework and other boring tasks.
Here's the problem. Your environment influences your peace of mind. His work and living spaces reflect not only attitude, but also influence. The crowded, dusty, crowded spaces give rise to sharp, confused emotions. David understood the importance of the environment. As a shepherd boy, he was rich in nutrition, water and relaxation in the lush environment. The stock was well stocked and protected. When you wrote Psalm 23, you made your concerns about the sheep with God's concerns. From his personal environment he wrote: "Sure, goodness and grace will follow me, God will restore my soul, my cup will run!"
Do you think it is blessed, goodness and peace surrounded by your own personal environment? Feel yourself and your environment in peace? Or are there any things we give up?
When God created a space for his family, he declared that they were all "very good"! We still refer to such beautiful, peaceful places as Eden. God wants his children to live in a beautiful, peaceful environment. Peace and satisfaction are part of your inner attitude and the other is from your own atmosphere. How to make your own Eden piece? First, understand that peace is actually an internal work, and it may even be, regardless of what's going on around you. Jesus said, "I give my peace to you … do not let your hearts be disturbed or afraid." In other words, leave all "stuff" that makes a mistake. Instead, seek for peace and pursue it (Ps 34:14). Persecution means persecution must be valuable and necessary.
My husband is getting worse by "stuff": traffic, people, devices, computer, remote control. In a very real sense, angry and nervous. One such thing is not intentionally trying to upset her, but to allow them. He forgets the peace. However, it is possible that you can take negative emotions and tell yourself, "No, I'm looking for peace, I will not let myself get angry."
Here is a revelation: the devil knows exactly what keys life is to bring to you. He sets up to annoy you. Do not give him power. You are at the heart of the personal environment. Focus on God's blessing and take all the negative emotions. What do you see, bless you? Do you have a smile or smile? Or are all "things" matched … confusion and chaos?
My mother collected angels and birds … and disks, and … When she moved on, her collection was inherited. I took it home, I put it on a shelf (well, more!), Then they had to be dust regularly. It was not something that was blessed – it was simply my mother and I was not sure how to let them go.
Sometimes we create emotional ties to physical things that replace relationships or spiritual peace. Failure for my mom's stuff has changed the relationship and memories. Finally, I sold most of the collections and kept only a few key pieces that really touched my heart. Now there is less maintenance, less clutter, and the pieces I've been washing.
Confusion is the external sign of internal confusion (plus a check schedule). How much do you really need? What if we scaled down, reorganized, and cleared the mess? Think about it. Do not you feel better after cleaning the house? Does not the fresh smell and the visual look make you smile?
Take care. Things you're committed to affect the environment. For example, I have several committees in several organizations. Each of them includes appointments, documents, To Do lists and sometimes personal conflicts. It's easy to let your calendar be so confusing with other people's projects that there is no "my time," peace time.
Here's a tip: if that's what you're doing does not inspire you, then it's time to go out. There are always groups and organizations that do good things and need time and money. Maybe you did because a friend asked for your help. Perhaps what you do is long gone. Perhaps it is time to appreciate the blessing and stress of that commitment. Maybe it's time to let go.
Look over. Go into your home or office and look over as if you were a stranger. Suppose you have not seen it yet. What would change? There may be a new paint layer or a new set of curtains shining in the atmosphere. Rearrange furniture. Add some ambient lighting. Put a new picture on the wall. Do something that calls the heart, "Wow!" when you enter the space
Never underestimate the power of the Wow factor. This is an inner satisfaction that says, "This is beautiful, here I am comfortable, this is my Eden, I want to spend time in this space."
Hubby and I donate to more charity organizations. One is Habitat for Humanity. Why "Because I think everyone should enjoy and enjoy his home like ours: home is a shelter, a personal Eden, and I know God's blessing." The Bible says to enjoy (I Tim 6:17) I try to maintain the atmosphere of peace and blessing, the comfortable place to go home and my friends want to visit. Ultimately, your personal environment and your personal peace is an internal work, your decisions, or lack thereof, from moment to moment to create your life and your environment, you can choose to sit on the couch or get up, or decide to clarify the mess – then keep it clean! Take responsibility for things you do not do or do … or things that you do not like
I like playing games on my tablet, relaxing, and suppressing concerns and responsibilities. you play solitaire every second, then you realize I really wanted to do the laundry and clean the kitchen. My selfish choice now means I'll look at dirty kitchens when I get up in the morning and have no socks! And no one can be blamed, just myself.
Your personal environment and your peace of mind are the direct result of elections and acts. Look at your attitude and quit worry and confusion. Look around and make changes that are consistent with peace and satisfaction. Describe the clutter in your environment and your calendar. Then look around and declare it as God, "this is very good!"
