Elul Day Reflections Day 15 - Defragging

Defragging is a process that physically reorganizes the contents of your computer hard drive into the smallest number of contiguous regions (fragments). It is the computer equivalent of taking a jumbled pile of miscellaneous papers that are strewn across your desk, organizing them into files and then putting them into a cabinet in alphabetical order. Our computers run more quickly, efficiently, and smoothly after this process of defragging. Similarly, we benefit from a similar process. While we can do emotional, spiritual, and interpersonal cleaning at any point, Elul affords us our yearly opportunity to 'defrag.' The best part about defragging is that it creates larger areas of free space. When we put in order all of the various stuff that clogs our lives, we too will have more space to do more of what matters.
