What is garbage?
We should first make clear what trash is actually. Under waste or garbage (Swiss also rubbish, Austrian also crap) means no longer needed remains. And no doubt: living in trash and garbage is no fun. We enjoy the beautiful, untouched nature, in good air.
Exciting is this consideration: Especially the civilized man produces waste. The more, the more MANY. In nature, on the other hand, there are no mountains of garbage. Consumed becomes new useful, new building material.
It's about personal waste
In this chapter we only use the stinking garbage “out there” as a metaphor. It's about “our” rubbish. We have accumulated a lot over the years.
Not just material in cupboards, basement and attic. We collect garbage in many areas of our lives. Garbage, the cost of living, burdening us and making our lives unnecessarily complicated. Just think of:
- the good feeling of tidying up
- the feeling of being free again
- the creation of new open spaces
- the inner pig-dog, who often opposes the mucking
It's about YOU
Ultimately it is about YOU. To do all the things you still do, even though you do not (really) satisfy these things.
It's about thoughts that you do not have to think about for a long time. To emotions that have their roots in the past.
Identify your personal garbage
Maybe you do not care about it - then you can continue browsing. Perhaps, however, you have now become curious to find your garbage.
Because he likes to hide in dark corners. He thus becomes one with the other and has already become part of the personality.
Important! Only you know what is garbage for you. Only you decide what you need and what not.
A handbag has changed the owner for 152.000 Euro. These two surprise egg characters Smurfs were worth a collector over 7000 Euro. The Matchboxauto even brought 420 Euro without wheels.
What is the value of modellauto, wine, surprise egg smurfs, shoes, handbag and envelope? What would these things be worth to you if you could not sell them but use them?
The more emotional, the more we stick to it
Would you perhaps dispose or give away some of these things? What is the difference between garbage and collector's item? And what do you think an old letter can be worth? For you, for others?
Over the years, our brain has processed, analyzed, and stored situations. The more emotional these experiences are, the more durable they are burned as on a DVD. This is confirmed by neuroscientists and psychologists.
Experiences as part of our ego
In this way, painful experiences such as failure, loss and fear, but also moments of happiness such as success, love, satisfaction and joie de vivre become part of our self. But this “DVD” does a lot more: It speaks to us!
We are constantly confronted with old experiences through inner dialogue - seductive, hurtful, admonishing, encouraging: “Don't act like that!” "What are you doing here?" "What are you wasting your time with?" "Think about your age." "Be reasonable!" "Give your best!"
The power of the inner voice
And we do not even seldom speak aloud, which makes us the inner voice amazed - unreflected and not really appropriate to any situation.
This voice can give us valuable impulses, for example to make good decisions quickly. But it can also hinder us from simply being “free” for new experiences. Free to cross borders. Free to live our own life.
The dramaturgy of life
Allow your voice to be the definitive director of your actions, largely shaping the dramaturgy of your life?
Or do you recognize that some of what is stored on your DVD and which is "for the best" (of course only for your best) is simply rubbish for you in the current situation? Garbage that obscures clear thoughts; Garbage that complicates your life; Garbage that makes change and satisfaction difficult.
Dispose of the internal garbage
Pay attention to this soon: Whenever something touches you - no matter if it is a lot of annoyance or a lot of joy - your personal “DVD” will be particularly active.
Then you know it's time for psycho-hygiene; Time to recognize the garbage in our thoughts, worries, ideas, moods, emotions, expectations, fears, instincts, lies and other things and, if necessary, dispose of them. Because too much rubbish in the head is burdened and makes in the long run ill.
