G.I.G.O.

Our trash-can at home seems to almost always be full.  I really don’t understand how the Mrs. and I generate so much junk. One day it’s empty and soon after one of us is trying to cram one more paper cup, empty can, or spoiled left over into a bin long past needing to be changed. Usually we end up spilling refuse on the floor because of the overflowing mess.

Growing up I was taught “G.I.G.O.” It’s an acronym for Garbage In, Garbage Out. What we put in our minds is what we get out of them.

Wisdom, mindfulness, stillness and contentment comes from a mind that isn’t filled with trash. When a person crams their lives with junk; a quiet, reflective, aware spirit is often the first thing to get thrown away.
