As I look around me, my house is a mess, my workshop is a mess, the yard is a mess. In the past I have cleaned up this or that, only to have it become a mess again in a very short time. Each time I did the cleaning, I didn't change anything about be, or how I have related to the environment and my surroundings. I've heard it said that the first thing to change is to admit that there is a problem. More than that is to admit my part of the problem. For much of my life I've been a messer-upper. I have not contributed to improving myself or my surroundings in a consistant ongoing manner.
What does it mean to live a spotless life? Is it even possible? In this article, I will attempt to answer this question as best as I can for myself. This will be an ongoing article that I may keep adding to and revising as I learn more. This article was prompted by, and inspired by, my (what I hope to be) series of blog post about living a spotless life.
