In a recent Skype conversation, Dad was telling me about the unknown amount of dust he uncovered around the house as he embarked on spring cleaning.
“I didn’t know there’s so much dust! It’s like the more I clean, the most dust I find! And I can’t stop until I’ve cleaned it all!”
After a pause:
“It’s just like our minds … We never know how much dust we have in our thoughts until we start attempting to clean and control them.”
“Mm hmm.” I nodded in agreement, amused that an activity like spring cleaning can be used as an analogy for control of the thoughts in our mind, and glad for the timely reminder.
