WE HEAR A LOT ABOUT SIMPLICITY…
But when you feel sadness, deprived, longing… getting rid of what you already have does not seem like a sane set of actions or behaviors for filling that inner emptiness.
Yet while we all have different stories (or in other words, our excuses for being right where we are and clinging to our coping mechanisms), what we all want is the same thing. We want more purpose and meaning in our life… in our daily activities, relationships, work, and effort.
We want to know what the true essence of life is… on an intimate level… and to know that it is sublime.
So how do we go about obtaining it? This is my question… and if you’re here, it’s probably a question you’re asking, too.
Does simplifying… cutting away the excess… really bring joy? Does having less make life more full and rich?
All I know, is that the way I’ve been doing life so far–striving more, accumulating more, worrying more–doesn’t work. So its time to do the opposite.
I’m embarking on a quest to simplify… to see if this whole minimalist/simplification thing really allows me to experience more with less.
Your dreams matter.
