As I sit at the car wash I realize how lucky we are to be able to wash our cars; to have the water and to even think of using it for cars. I came to the car wash to use less water than I can at home and I loved the fact that they use recycled water. It got me to thinking of all the wash terms there are in our society and all the different things they mean.
Wash means that it’s “us” or “our clothes” getting cleaned. The word “brain washed” to most people is not a good thing. It usually means being under duress and fed propaganda till your thoughts are no longer yours but “the party line” of what ever party is washing your brain. For the record, I think we all need to know how to wash our own brains. This is how I want you to think of brain washing.
Washed up means something else. Something that has not been cleaned too much but something or someone who has hit the shore and been left there like debris. It means being cast aside, down on your luck, things way beyond working condition, and hopeless situations. So how does something that means “to make clean” become something we want to avoid at all costs? Try this if you are feeling hopeless and washed up.
Think of all the ways you can wash things in your life. You can
Washed Away (can be physical or emotional)
Think of all the types of washing you can think of and they are almost as varied and vast as the Divine. They cover both sides of the spectrum and every shade of black white and grey. Washing away the emotional, commotional debris of the past can be the hardest wash to do. It is not a one-time job. There are layers upon layers until the jewel of the self is revealed, naked and awesome; the priceless ruby we have always been searching for; the treasure hunt that is the only one worth finding.
