Time to Spring Clean

A Zen Parable

Walking along a lonely road, a wanderer came upon a flooding river that had washed out the bridge. He decided to build a sturdy raft, and it carried him safely across to the other bank. "This is a good raft," he thought. "If there's another river ahead, I can use it." He carried the raft the rest of his life never finding another need for it.

This Zen parable applies to Spring cleaning.  How many things am I still holding onto long after they have served their purpose?   It's time to lighten the load!
