What Is Clutter?

Our clutter isn’t relegated only to material things.
We clutter our lives with destructive relationships,
careers, obligations, rituals, busyness, minutiae,
news, media, politics, gossip, drama, rumors.

We clutter our attention with glowing screens.
We clutter our creativity with distractions.
We clutter our free time with trivialities.
We clutter our desires with attachments.

Our lives are brimming with existential clutter,
emotional clutter, mental clutter, spiritual clutter.
So much so that it’s hard to distinguish
what is clutter—and what is not.

We are stressed out, overwhelmed, and anxious
because we’ve filled our lives with disorder, chaos.

Though there is another way.

Look at an object, a commitment, a habit.
Does it bring tranquility or increase your well-being?
If not, let it go!

Not an easy path,
but a simple one.
