Chinese New Year is around the corner.

Normally, for Chinese practice, we are going to do spring cleaning, to clean up the dirt, dust and also to recycle items which are in good condition.

Why we need to do spring cleaning? To have a clean environment to welcome a new year and to start a new life.

Normally, we are going to use modern tool to help us for cleaning purpose.

I believed most of you are going to use vacuum cleaner or irobot.

Have you ever observe how the machine works?

It’ll suck up all dust and dirt at home.

The machine will not do any filtration about what type of dust or dirt, then only suck them.

Think about it, some of us just like the vacuum cleaner, we love to “suck” all negative input, emotion and gossip from others, store in our mind and keep thinking about it.

The more we think about it, the more we are in angry, emotion turmoil….

Do you think this action will bring more peace and calm to your mind?

It’ll never.

Why not, we listen from left ear and let go from right ear, never let whatever others saying to affect our peace and calm.

Peaceful joy is priceless!
