There’s a concept in art (and decor of many types) that deals with the manipulation and utilization of blank areas. Empty places which are intentionally not filled in.
This is a difficult one for me, I’m a filler. A boarder-line hoarder who needs to gather and keep. I have a hard time letting go. Of anything.
What I’ve been learning though, as I study (gather and hoard!), is that the more we let go, the more opportunities we have to get MORE STUFF!
Here’s what I woke up with today:
When we leave some “space” (making areas more “available” and accessible) we are opening up our entire lives to more options. This is why change and release are so VERY important. We have to do it, or nothing new can come in.
And what if the next new thing is BETTER than the crap we need to get rid of? If we don’t do the releasing, (instead, hanging on to every scrap, never taking anything out to the curb) we can’t have fun new surprises and fabulous new opportunities.
Because, this is a Universal Law. True, there is an infinite amount of space and prosperity. However, there is a finite amount which we can accept.
Partly due to our physical limitations, but also it comes down to the impeded and crushing-under-its-own-weight atmosphere that is created when the world is spinning along freely, but we’re holding on with a white-knuckled death grip dragging our feet and screaming for everything to just STOP.
An easy way to get started is by listening to our daily draw message. While cleaning is decidedly NOT a fun task for me, that feeling when you’re finally fucking done, is kinda nice.
(As I said, this is a process for me, too. So don’t think I’m all “de-cluttered” – I am not even close. What I am, is starting to understand it.)
“Angel of Pleasure ~
‘Take pleasure in the things you do.’
The message for you today is to start to take pleasure in all the things you do. It’s not all about hard work, achievements, and performance.
What is important is that you make the most of every moment in your life. Start to do more things that bring you pleasure and that bring pleasure to those you love, work, and play with.
Try it. You may be surprised to find that when things become pleasurable, you accomplish more, with less stress and effort.”

Final FLP Report:
begins with this view.
And finishes with another Virginia, two separate Tennessees, an Ohio, South Dakota, Kansas, Arkansas, BC, two Floridas, a new York, and one new New Mexico.
This feature has no officially come to an end. Those changes I mentioned a few days ago? Yeah, this is part of it. As I said, I will absolutely keep you posted all along the way.
