When Spring cleaning season arrived this year I decided that it was time to get rid of more than just a Winter's worth of dust and dirt. I decided that it was the time to get rid of years worth of accumulated stuff as well. This stuff was lining my walls, filling my shelves, and crowding my closets.
又到今年的春日泥膏型季,我想着得要泥膏型的不只是是一个夏天的无机污垢尘霾,另有长时间集结的其它没用的产品。另外其它没用的产品有人靠着墙,有人在柜橱上,另有人在我挤挤插插的衣橱。

This stuff was cluttering my home and my mind and not bringing me one bit of happiness. I couldn't even remember how I got some of it, but I knew I wanted it gone.
睡觉的地方的产品乱成一团,想到这我一点点都宁愿不一块。我都想不一块是甚么时间有人,目前我只想让渠快点恢复正常。

It turned out to be an even bigger job than I thought. Twenty year old bills and receipts were tossed in the trash. File cabinets were cleaned of papers that were no longer necessary or needed.
去除渠比我非常的少的要工赫赫。二十国家的发货票发货票、文件夹得用不上的废纸,全体丢进垃圾箱。

Broken bowls, dented pans, and cracked knickknacks were finally thrown away. Unworn clothes were hauled out of the closet and bagged up to be given away to the local Goodwill.
破掉的碗、变形的平底锅、有裂缝的小摆件都扔掉了。从衣柜打整出不穿的衣物,卷捐给本土的社会机。

Old books were boxed up to be passed on for others to read and enjoy. It took several days to get it all done,but in the end I was able to walk through a home that seemed a little less cluttered. My heart was a lot lighter too. It felt so good to be able to get rid of all the junk and to just focus on the essential stuff in life again.
故书入箱传递给人们悦读。我花了好两三天的时间才把另外各项都办妥。当我在手头上核查感到没总之乱了,意识也较前后平心静气非常多,抛弃徒劳之物,把兴趣安放基本的各项上,让人美。

What is the essential stuff? What is the stuff that brings meaning to our days? A loving heart is essential. A joyful spirit is essential. A soul full of goodness and God is essential.
甚么是基本的各项?另外各项对我要蹉跎的每某天有甚么理念?有一颗慈祥之心特别基本。有一个生意向上的操行特别基本。心存善念和观音特别基本。

And a lifefull of sharing all of these things is absolutely essential. The essential stuff can't be bought, sold, or stored. It can only be chosen, created, and given away. The essential stuff is the stuff we all really want. It is the stuff we all really need.
了解施予也有其基本。名实相符基本的各项不应该贩卖与保留。渠只应该被寻找、被发明、被废弃。名实相符基本的产品是我想要且得要的。
