This year my newsletter of weekly wisdom Seeds is 21 years old. It was inspired by the prodigious work of metaphysician Emmet Fox. I wanted to send a weekly inspirational gift that was a quickie — to cause a deepening of spiritual thought, word, and deed. It seems to be working; I still have some of the charter subscribers.

Seeds XXI, 16 Seed: Just in Case
Simplicity expert Courtney Carver inspired me to clear my bookshelves which have a way of multiplying their contents when I am not looking.
When I began to let go of my just-in-case clutter, little pieces of fear went with it and it became easier to let go in other areas of my life.
Just-in-case is the phrase that got to me. When I turned my eyes to my books, I realized that I have owned many of them for many years beyond their usefulness to me. Translation: I’ve shlepped reference books all over the country for things I now look up online automatically. Duh.
I don’t need three baby names books. I no longer really need a dictionary. I no longer need those rich overview books that I used to use for book ideas. Time to give away my just-in-case books.
How about you? Any just-in-case clutter? Ms. Carver is correct. Our things can tie up our energy. Time for a little spring cleaning?
