Taking Out The Trash

There’s a scene in the movie Way Of The Peaceful Warrior where the character Socrates throws the character Dan Millman off a bridge.

The purpose of this was to be present in the moment.

At the start of the scene, Dan Millman runs up and asks Socrates if he can make it quick because he has other things to do.

Then he was thrown off the bridge.

This was the quickest way for Dan to throw out the trash.

Socrates had these words for Dan.

“The trash is anything that is keeping you from the only thing that matters… this moment, here and now.”

With the amount of noise that we have going on in our lives, we need to take the trash out more frequently than we do.
