Change Places

Try to pack everything you own into any number of varying receptacles, and then fit all of them together in as neat a configuration as possible in the corner of the largest room you have access to.

Then, load your packaged belongings into whatever vehicle you may have at your disposal and transport them any distance.

Repeat the above, but in reverse (unload, unpack).  Make as many trips as necessary.

You’ll very quickly realize just how many material possessions you carry along with you in your life, and equally if not more speedily pass judgment on whether or not they are true essentials.

It is a culture of constant consumerism we live in.  I enjoy the peace of mind I get from having many of what are probably petty frivolities…because I just might in some future projection of self need or want them on hand.

Beyond the basics of comforted living, am I measurably happier relative to the amount of possessions I have spread around myself?  Not really.  Things are cold and lifeless.  People — people are warm, and interesting.

Today I’m grateful to have people to share my things with.
