Less Stuff, More Freedom

Something good starts to happen as soon as you want more freedom over more stuff.

I believe we are reaching a tipping point at which humanity is more concerned with freedom than with stuff. In all the global protests over the past few years I have not heard a single crowd or mob chant, "We want more STUFF!"

We are cluing into the fact that we don't need to buy anything, or go anywhere, to foster our personal growth, to be who we truly are. We are born with everything we need to achieve lasting peace and happiness.

Fostering personal growth free of outside influences, can be done right here, right now. A sure sign that you are on your way is when you begin to have a desire for less stuff and more freedom.

People have been sharing the 'less stuff/more freedom' message for thousands of years as a route to not only saving money and the environment, but more importantly, as a route to freedom, and happiness.

And it is not a secret. People have been and continue to shout it from the rooftops - "It is not what is out there, but what is inside you!"

All the answers we seek will be found within, not at the mall. Or on an exotic beach far from home.

Although, that is not to say that enlightened moments can't happen in either place. When we are ready, the moment can come anywhere at any time. Have more such moments by simplifying your life now.

Living simply with reduced material and psychic clutter, and having the time and space to be fully present in the moment, leads to self discovery, which leads to freedom.

Freedom makes all living things happy.

Let your mantra be "Less Stuff, More Freedom" and you will discover an inner peace such as you have never experienced before.

“I believe that the greatest truths of the universe don't lie outside, in the study of the stars and the planets. They lie deep within us, in the magnificence of our heart, mind, and soul. Until we understand what is within, we can't understand what is without.”

    1. Savvy Sister, So glad you introduced us to this amazing woman. Her story of coming back after terminal cancer is inspiring and hopeful.

      In these times her message is desperately needed by an increasingly jaded and depressed public.
