Be your own raddiwala

What happens to anything in the house that is in excess – not wanted anymore…..not of use anymore – a raddiwala is called for and all that is religiously handed over to him. In fact some households have a fixed periodicity too for the same – i.e. he visits once every month, or once after two or three months as the need be. After each visit of the raddiwala the house looks cleaner and spacious because all the ‘excess baggage’ has gone and it is clutter free – almost as good as new! That is the time when you usually think about changing the decor of the house or buying something new because suddenly there is space around to add new and better things! Now, this is the external scenario…..what about the internal ‘cleaning’- the cleaning of our minds? We need to do the same even there – we have to de clutter, create space. I’m sure all of us have ‘excess baggage’ inside us too, and for that clean up there is no raddiwala – we have to be our own raddiwala! We have to keep cleaning our minds of whatever is not required, not needed anymore for a fresh and new ground for exploring, experiencing and enjoying all that the world has to offer – just like buying new things or rearranging things in the house. It is very important to learn this art of being our own  ‘raddiwala’ . All of us have a limited number of days, and I feel it’s a great idea to keep playing the role of our own raddiwala regularly to lead a happy, stress free life, and making the most of the time allotted to us……
