Minimalism - the Power of Simplicity

Life left to itself tends to become more and more complex and cluttered. It takes a concerted effort to reverse the trend - to simplify, to become a minimalist. 

Some thoughts worth reflecting on:

  • Could the best way to organise your stuff be to get rid of the heap of it?
  • How might your life be better if you had less?
  • What would it look like to get rid of your excess and enjoy the remainder more? 
  • Our physical world represents our internal state. Dealing with the external can affects the internal. Do you suffer from mental clutter?
  • Is it time for you to create a 'not to do' list rather than continuing to add more and more tasks that you will never get around to doing anyway?

Jesus once said: “Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own" (Luke 12:15. NLT)

Do you feel like you need to simplify? Here is some reading you might find stimulating and challenging from a range of authors and thinkers:

Some final words from Jesus:

John 14:27. “I am leaving you with a gift— peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid." NLT

May you know that peace in your life today.
