A Yen for Zen
We know people who love to clean. “You get into it,” they say. “It’s like Zen for cleaning.” We know people who should love to clean, because they live surrounded by clutter. They have a yen for the Zen, but not enough to do anything about it.
A question: How many books are there now that will help you with your clutter, help you realize that your clutter, as long as it’s there, is merely an outward manifestation of an overburdened mind? (Or something like that. Maybe it’s the other way around.) Anyway, no matter.
Proposition One: Most of us have clutter at home.
Proposition Two: Most of us want it magically to disappear or organize itself.
