Less is More
What do we really need? I am thinking, hardly anything. The more time I spend with less belongings, the more it strikes me that most of what we own, most of our 'stuff' is entirely unnecessary. It seems that it is becoming more and more attractive to me to have less and less. It is not that I have so much, because as far as 'objects' are concerned, I do not, but I am being, more and more drawn, to having less and less. I find this very interesting and very, very liberating. Although, there are so many beautiful objects everywhere, the desire to possess them isn't there like it used to be. In fact, it is a bit overwhelming for me to be around excess. It was exciting once, but now it is just sad. I find myself almost resistant to acquiring any new thing. I find myself enjoying an empty room. I find myself not being able to breathe in a cluttered space. I find myself in awe of these beautiful people. I find myself.
