“I think developed countries – so-called developed countries – should reflect upon the way of living and the waste of energy.”- Hugo Chavez.

Just so you know, ownership is an illusion. Because, we can’t take anything with us when this life reaches its final chapter. Therefore, this means you are pretty much a custodian of inanimate objects. The question is, how big of a  custodian job do you want? The more stuff you have the bigger the burden. So much of our time(and life) gets eaten up by working for, shopping for, and paying for said items, and then taking care of it all! After  I nearly  died these inanimate objects lost nearly all their value to me. I began not only going through the loads of things   I owned but also giving away and selling much of it. I no longer found  as much value in  objects as I once had.  Simply put, you assign value to things, they don’t assign value to you. Our culture is unbelievably wasteful to the point of insanity. I still marvel at the hoards of things that occupy giant shopping malls. What happens to it all? Where does it all go?   Furthermore, do we  really need any of it!?   Just watch the video below. Also, avoid regular trips to Forever 21, H&M, and the website Modcloth.com!

A designer purse will not make you happier, just as  no inanimate object was going to restore the  physical functions I nearly lost in my body. Therefore,  I saw no point in becoming a collector of things that would only burden me. At some point I even questioned a bewildered friend, what the point of saving money was. Since it really didn’t  serve me at the time or hold as much value anymore. When you  nearly lose everything,   lets just say your perspective changes a bit. The continual dance  that people do, to obtain and maintain essentially useless objects became   very unnecessary to me. Instead of petitioning for a better environment, perhaps we should quit dumping tons of unnatural materials into the  Earth.  Our time would be better spent on experiences that create incredible memories, rather than objects  that cause us grief.  Additionally we could use our resources to help another person either financially or with our time. Now that is something very worth doing!

Go minimal!

  1. This amazing Truth confirmed in Bible says a person’s life is not made up of confidence in materials possessions. After indepth reflection shows such a lifestyle promotes vanity of vanities as King Solomon said. The Saddens God because all things belong to God as Patent Owner Creator others usurp so encourage greed to grow their wealth. But will all account to God one day for irresponsible illusion of grandeur. You have summed up the sad tragedy of capitalism that puts passion and interest in love of money the root of all evil above love of God’s Priceless human beings. This destroys GOD’S PLANS and Purpose for all mankind to Freely richly enjoy all things God Has Already Provided and Supplies. This tragedy is being taken care of by God to Restore His Perfect Kingdom again through His Son JESUS Christ. Thank God you have seen the Light JESUS so translated from kingdom of darkness into the Glorious Kingdom of ALMIGHTY God in Christ Jesus. God bless you abundantly. Thank you for sharing this Powerful Truth.
