My ‘STUFF’ Belonged to Ego – Not ME! : 2012 wave #22

{catch the other posts at Riding The 2012 Wave}

As I mentioned in ‘ego swiped my surfboard’,
part 1
part 2
I felt I had too much stuff.

And I did!

Over 50 years accumulation of personal belongings
to get rid of or haul to my new …. location. (ego is waking up)

All my belongings were in my house [mostly in the unfinished basement] and garage.  (ego recommended the storage areas when I first moved here)

Oh, and can’t forget the things in the yard;

  • the benches Dean made me,

  • statues from friends,

  • large rocks I hauled home for their sheer beauty and placed them as borders to my rock garden.  (ego keeps piling it on)

The rock garden!
Was I going to haul all those rocks to my new….location?
I loved those rocks!
I collected them with my kids and friends.
Those rocks had memories!
I had to bring them!
I can build a new rock garden.
(ego starts to chant “garden, garden, garden”….)

Garden?
Oh no!
My beautiful garden of flowers, herb, fruits, vegetables.
I put years into that mixed up garden.
(ego is spinning like a top, grinning from ear to ear)

It was my ‘meditation zone’.
How can I leave that behind?
I could take clippings and start a new garden at my next…. location.
Will I have a yard for a garden?
(ego reminded me)

To be continued,
