A proverb to ponder…

I am a house with four rooms.

“There is an Indian proverb or axiom that says that everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, a mental, an emotional and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time, but unless we go into every room every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.”

Rumer Godden

It is an interesting thought that I will continue to ponder throughout the week.

I have not been visiting this “room” for a long time now, instead trying to do more off screen, keeping up with housework, my job, my family.

However, I have also had this nagging thought at the back of my mind that I haven’t sat down to write for me. I haven’t (since February) dedicated time daily for my so-called “Unicorn Space” to blog, to journal, to be inspired and breathe life into those little things that make my soul smile.

I will be searching to find for me, how can I visit each room, even if briefly, on the daily. What does each room hold?

What does it mean to visit my spiritual room- prayer? Meditation? Millie’s garden?

What does a visit to my emotional room look like- sitting with my feelings? Being more mindful of my emotions and labeling them?

And what about the physical and mental rooms? What lies behind their doors? A walk in nature? Quiet time to read a book or listen to a podcast?

Let’s continue the discussion :

What are in your rooms, and how can you take care to go into each room every day?
