We all enjoy a clean and organized space, but getting too rigid about this can make your home feel sterile and disconnected from nature. Life itself is blatantly sensuous, not fussy… imagine the scent of fresh dark soil, the relaxed chaos of the forest floor, waves kissing dry sand wet as the tide rolls in.
Nature becomes a more integrated part of our homes when we relinquish attachment to sterile perfection. Once in awhile, let a breeze come in and blow some papers around. Watch them fly. Casually nudge some artwork crooked to match. Then you can relax with a cup of tea, and be at peace with the way things are.
