We rarely ask ourselves if we actually need the things we’re schlepping around; these superfluous trinkets and “ancestral” pieces, hanging onto us like millstones around our necks (Matthew 18:6). What’s all that shit worth? Like, it’s ACTUAL worth. What’s it costing us?
In a culture that measures success and happiness on how big one’s home is, how much stuff one has, what KIND of stuff one has, and the volume of resources or capital one has, it’s almost inevitable that members of the aforementioned culture would be more susceptible to remaining ignorant to the insidious price for connecting their worth and identity to the material.
Awareness leads to elegance and simplicity, and the ability to create cosmos from chaos.
Time to have a Garage-Sale-for-the-Soul. Free up those internal resources bound up in all the stuff. Reclaim power.
(See y’all tomorrow)
