WINNOWING

WINNOWING:   I find this an interesting word.  It’s somewhat like take what you need that is beneficial and leave the rest or removing the weeds from the crop.   Merriam-webster  defines it as: “to get rid of (something undesirable or unwanted), winnowing what is true and significant — Oscar Lewis,   separate, sift .”

How much baggage do we carry that is of no benefit?   How much stuff on TV do we accept without winnowing?   How much on the internet do we absorb without winnowing? 

This is not just physical baggage; but emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. Do we winnow our thoughts?

My goal is to rid (winnow)  myself of what’s not good for my path, my spirituality, my development.   An ongoing realization.  Allowing me freedom to BE.
