Being a complete person

There is an Indian proverb or axiom that says that everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, a mental, an emotional, and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time but, unless we go into every room every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.

    What a good reason to go into the rooms that scare me--just to air them. Maybe, that idea makes them just a little less scary and maybe, over time, I can stay in those rooms a little longer with each trip.
