Letting go becomes easier when we see not what we lose, but all that we gain, in creating space for something new.
The function of a room,
Is in its emptiness.
A room that is cluttered,
Has less space to live.
So it is with the Dao.
To know how we are feeling about our life and to understand who we really are, we need to create space during our day; to connect to our feelings, to let go of any emotions that hold us back and be open to create space and receive.

as empty & ready
as a wrung
Beautiful! The only way to be. 🙏🏻
Thanks for the reminder Karen, I need to clean out in my working room to find space for the new 🙂
Happy cleaning Irene. 💚
Powerful pairing of message and image, Karen!
I think we all feel good in spaciousness Lori. Thankyou 😉
I need to creat that empty space nth in my mind and in my house. Both are too cluttered.
Our homes often reflect what our minds are doing too Emilie! I have found clearing out any clutter really shifts my mind. Happy clearing! 😉
Oh, so true. Love this wisdom, Karen!
Thanks Eliza! 🙏🏻
Thankyou Nico, you are very kind. 🙏🏻
I LOVE this. Just what Is needed right now.
Wonderful! Enjoy each moment Jennifer 💚
This is so true, Karen. Thanks for the timely reminder !
My pleasure! Thanks Helen 🙏🏻
This is so true, as much for our rooms as our minds! 🙂
Indeed! When our minds are cluttered and in chaos, so is our outer world. Nice to have you here Carol. 🙏🏻
I’m glad to be back, Karen, after a rather long holiday from blogging. It’s a bit hard though getting back to a routine…like going back to school after summer vacation!
Yes it can take time. It’s good to have a break and clear our minds. Lovely to have you back. 💚
Like this, Karen. Like the rich man who asked Jesus what he could do, beyond obeying the Ten Commandments, in order to enter Heaven. He sadly turned and went away when Jesus said to give up all that he owned to the poor and follow Him.
We must also empty our hearts of those things that bind us. So then we can make room for God’s love which frees us.
It can be such a challenge for people to act on these important words Alan. Making room to receive and grow does free us and create peace., Thankyou 🙏🏻
Oh, I love when I read one of your posts and realize we were channeling the same bits while writing separately. My recent spate of clearing things–real and metaphorical–in my home reflects what you have here.I’m a believer!
That’s exactly what I thought when I read your post! It’s great when we finally understand that letting go, equals freedom. 🙏🏻😃
I just read something earlier this morning about how we tend to hold onto “bad” ~ generally negative emotions that create grudges or arguments, instead of letting them go…creating space for good. This is just the feeling I had when reading your post here ~ let go of the negative thoughts, to create space for good/for life. Cheers to a great day.
It’s true Randall, I think holding on nurtures our ego and creating space nurtures our heart. Have a great day too.
I love how you brought such a big topic down to today. This moment. Our feelings right now.
Thank you Karen.
Yes it all comes down to this precious moment doesn’t it? Much love 💚💚
Karen I totally agree, the old saying one door closes another opens is what I said this week. Letting go of things I did for others last week in the hope other opportunities arise. I have freed up my time a bit to work on my art. Finished my volunteering at the school and at a local Information centre. It is time this gal made some space for the new opportunities involving my art.
Well you deserve that Kath! Your gift is our gift, so spread your wings make space and share it 💚💗
Working hard to do that, thanks Karen xxx
