I’ve been just enthralled with a book that I picked up yesterday called Tiny Homes on the Move by Lloyd Kahn. It’s a collection of pictures and stories of people who gave up their big “American Super-Sized Houses” and most of their “stuff” for really little houses capable of being moved. Some of them are boats, some airstream campers, converted school buses, and even old circus caravan cars. In just about all of the stories the people speak about how liberated they felt by getting rid of all of the extra “stuff” in their lives.
So, I’ve been thinking, how much stuff do I really need in my life, and what of it is actually weighing me down? I’m a self-professed neat freak. Nothing gets me more on-edge than clutter. Here is an interesting article on the mental implications of clutter and how it can be a symptom of an over stimulated brain:
What are the spiritual ramifications of an over-cluttered life? I feel that when I am disorganized and over-cluttered I am unable to rest and reflect (two very essential pieces in the spiritual puzzle). So, turn on the tunes and purge, my friends! Purge! Give yourself enough space (literally and figuratively) to live a simplified and spiritual life.
Peace, Love, and Laughter,
