Our mind is a clutter of thoughts.
All of you agree that thoughts are evergrowing and they keep on coming unless one is asleep.
So, after a period of time, your mind will be dumped with an innumerable number of thoughts and you will get much perplexed and disturbed.
Now, most of these thoughts can be of no use at all. They are merely repetitions of our old memories which may make you feel either sad or pleasant depending upon their nature. Nothing more than that.
Or, most of them can be about your future perceptions and fears of survival. You can develop worries and anxieties by a mere thought of going to face a certain situation or a particular person. It can make you fearsome or much disturbed.
But, all these unnecessary fears and worries are wholly due to those thoughts in your mind only. Those are not real circumstances. It is only your imagination that such and such a thing happened in your past life or that something is going to happen in your future. It makes you worried and develops fear or disturbance in your life.
So, in order to be well balanced and cheerful, you need to drive away those unnecessary thoughts from your mind and keep it clean. You need to keep only those constructive thoughts which aid your life and discard all the other clutter from your mind.
Just like a fruit seller or a vegetable seller sorts out all rotten items from his stock and keeps only the fresh and useful ones for next day, we also need to sort out all those useless thoughts from our mind and keep in stock only the positive thoughts that are beneficial for our progress in life. Otherwise, the entire stock will decay and create much loss.
So, let us make our minds clutter-free and keep them healthy and pleasant to achieve success in life. Thereby, our body will also be healthy and strong.
