Cleaning up

It is fall.  Time to take out clothes from storage for a cooler season. Time to look at what I have used and not used. Time to get rid of things that no longer serve.

The yogic principle this relates to is "saucha".  Saucha translates as cleanliness. It is really cleanliness in outward ways of life and in inward ways of life,  Habits with clothes and possessions as well as with thoughts and people.  Yoga encourages us to look at them and see what is clean and what is not clean in all our habits.

I had a bunch of nice clothes that I used to wear years ago, but have not put on in years.  They were crammed into my closet along with lots of things I do use and wear now.  They were so fancy I did not want to let them go.  But they were no longer useful in my life,  

So, with saucha as my guide, I went through and got rid of them.  I took them to my neighborhood church's clothes closet.  Now some people who do not have the money to buy nice things will be able to have some nice things,  and I have some closet space.

Letting go of those things felt hard.  But then it turned out to be so nice.  Clean.

To rearrange your closet for winter sure is hectic. It stresses you out both mentally and physically. during this when you are stressed out about where to place your sweaters, charity sure is a noble way of solving this problem out because out there are loads of people who need that sweater more than us where we have stacks of them.

I think your blog is precise yet is about very important issue. It is true that not all people can afford new clothes because they are jobless or pennyless and therefore can’t manage to make ends meet. It is very nice of you for your good deed.
