CLEAN YOUR VIEW
The window washers just left. I can see like I have never seen before!
Yes, I have cleaned my windows in the past, but this is the first time in the years that I have lived in my home that I hired a window service. They cleaned all my windows and doors quickly, systematically and professionally.
I watched from the inside of my house as they soaped the window in front of me. The deposits of the seasons and weather ran down the glass in a muddy rinse. As the squeegee moved back and forth the clarity opened with every stroke until the window was a bright exposed screen to life outside.
I had no idea the windows were that dirty. I had been living (I thought) comfortably in my home glancing occasionally out the window with little thought to whether I was able to see clearly.
Isn’t that how we live our lives?
We skip along day by day not even noticing what is in our view.
We are numbed by our thoughts and memories of the past and occupied by our hopes and dreams of the future.
We survive in a comfortable chaos somewhere between the two without realizing that we are missing out on our present purpose.
Our present purpose is to breathe this breath,
walk this step,
see, smell and taste this moment.
It is not to be so clouded by the dirt of the past and the film of the future that we don’t see the sparkling canvas of nowright in front of us.
Is it time to clean your windows?
Is it time to soap away the preoccupation of what has happened, stop dreaming of what might happen and live in the sparkle of what is happening?
Wash clean the window of your mind.
Today, right now, this moment is an amazing sight.
Relish the reality of now!
See like you have never seen before!
Enjoy the view!
