Spring Cleaning

The tidy house-wife prides herself on keeping a very clean house, but when spring comes she takes up the carpets and has them carried out and beaten, which reveals a lot of dust and dirt, and perhaps moths, and so on through the furniture and draperies she uncovers the accumulated dirt. She lets the light into many dark corners, and is forced to admit that all this dust and dirt came out of the best room.

If we would search ourselves as thoroughly and force ourselves to see and admit the fact that we are concealing in the dark recesses of our hearts selfishness, anger, jealousy, suspicions, malice, envy, etc., and bring these thoughts into the light of Love, we would find them fast being destroyed, and their places filled with love and peace.
