Time to unclutter and cleanse

A dear friend sent me this presentation, and it made me reflect and share:

On the day of Naw Ruz, I was putting two dishes aside after having washed them, and I dropped them. One got broken, one was left intact. I thought to myself, how appropriate a metaphor — of keeping what is worth and throwing away what is not.

Ridvan rosesThen on the 9th day of Ridvan, I had brought two vases for the roses I used to decorate and then give away to the friends. The wind was strong and while I was away it knocked the vases — one broke, the other survived. Another reminder that some things survive and some don’t, but we move on.

Time to unclutter and cleanse:

Thy heart is My home; sanctify it for My descent. Thy spirit is My place of revelation; cleanse it for My manifestation.
(Baha’u’llah, The Arabic Hidden Words)
