I read these posts and feel a kindredness with people I have never met. So what is it that draws us to speak out that “stuff’s bad m’kay.” To answer my own question, there is a disease that infects us all. Wether we believe it or not, most of us are unhappy with who we are, what we are doing, hell…who we are with. Why? I have not answer to that. For me, I was and in some respects still am that person. I could not see beauty for beauty and love for love. I could not accept being loved, I could not accept anything about everything that I had become. So I started getting rid of things I felt impeded my “true self.” And what I found is beyond words…..It was hidden so deep down inside of me I fear one more day and it would have been gone forever. I found love, thats the only word I can come up with, everything around me became so much more then a conquest. I didn’t have to change anything around me. It all came from right inside! Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead. Getting rid of “stuff” to me is not what I see as a minimalist life, it starts inside and the result, is less to obscure your view of what is truly beautiful:)
Be at peace where ever you may find yourself.
