After hitting 50, we should all do a 'Death Cleaning'.
This is the methodical cleaning and clearing out of all things, material and mental, that we have accumulated over the years of our active past.
Firstly, the clothes, accessories, artefacts, momentos, collectibles, gifts, memorabilia and other sundry items, all of which we do not need - either going forward or in the new world we will all go into one day.
Once we are truly old, the world has no time or place for us. Our family will have no time for us.
After our death why then trouble others about clearing out our things?
It is better that while we are still able bodied and healthy, to methodically and systematically give away our things to deserving people, who are happy to receive and use them and will remember our giving in their minds.
Be firm and focussed when clearing out stuff. Do it in an organised manner, on a time schedule based on your own necessities. Don't get emotional and sentimental. Be practical.
Start by doing a little bit of 'Death Cleaning every week, every month, every year.
Don't buy too many new things. Things you don't need!
Just hold on to your money as long as you are alive and....write your will.
But.... treasure your memories for they are carried with us as we move on through different lifetimes.
If we have hurt someone knowingly or unwittingly, say sorry, seek forgiveness and clear our conscience.
Say thank you to all who've helped us. Hold no grudges, so when we go, we go peacefully, without any karmic baggage..... carrying only a good mind and good memories.... that is our genetic imprint.
