The Significance of Cleanliness
A clean house is important for the health and well-being of your entire family. First of all, a dirty house is a germy house, and the best defense against the spread of illnesses is to keep the germs washed away.
Cleanliness is an important aspect of life. Cleanliness is not just about the body. It is also about our surroundings. If our surroundings are not clean, or in other words, if our surroundings are not pleasant to our senses, then the images that we create in our mind, the projections that happen upon the seat of our experience turn unpleasant.
The importance of making your bed, you have been told at some point if not by your parents, at least by your grandparents about how to keep your clothes and bedclothes.
In India in particular, they say that if you leave your bedclothes crumpled and unfolded, ghosts will come and gather. When you sleep, they will sleep with you and trouble you. I think in English there is a saying, “As you make your bed, so shall you lie upon it.” This is essentially about the forms around you.
The well-being of the family is enhanced by an uncluttered atmosphere. If the rule of “a place for everything and everything in its place” is observed, the environment will be more serene and pleasant.
Today, scientists tell us that the whole existence is just one energy manifesting itself in a million different ways. As energy has generated forms, forms can, in turn, generate energy. And every form around you is generating a certain type of energy.
Everything we are is what we make it, and the kind of structure we live in, the way we arrange ourselves, and the way we keep things around us. So make a clean environment near you and see the change it brings in your life.
