Thanks Joshua and Ryan, I enjoyed this a lot as I have been enjoying your blog since I found it last year. I am on this journey too still in an early stage, but on it nonetheless. Lookng forward to reading the rest of the series. I enjoyed this immensely. It was buried under eight pieces of luggage in a storage cubbie under the stairs.
I kept one backpack and donated the rest. This is an excellent exercise in putting our priorities into order. Why do we attach so much importance to things? Thanks for helping us to pause and reflect! Amen,This essay bought tears my eyes and pressure to my chest. Consious thinking is the only thinking. Thankyou Guys. Beautifully written as always. This class became life changing for me because of the teacher who said he was a former Catholic turned Jew or vice versa turned atheist turned agnostic.
Even though it was a literature class, the students loved to challenge his spiritual beliefs. Some worship God, some worship food, some worship money, some worship stuff, etc. Look carefully and watch their deeds. Powerful words. This is such inspiring, thought provoking stuff, thank you guys so much for posting. I plan on becoming a regular reader of your blog right after I make another trip to Goodwill or Salvation Army. People like you are the reason I write. Thank you for your enthusiasm and kind words.
I really appreciate it. I think the reason that a lot of people embrace minimalism is a sort of spiritual detox. The greed, keeping up with the joneses and instant gratification in our society can be pretty soul-eroding. Very well said. You just encapsulated what we were trying to say in a much more succinct way what? Holy crap — you guys completely nailed all my feelings when it comes to minimalism.

Some people get so wrapped up in commercialism that they see only money and luxury as their highest value, and they forget the value of family, friendships, and most importantly our personal relationship with ourselves. Surprisingly, you guys also summed up my feelings on religion too. That to me is a very real kind of faith. Wow, wow — truly phenomenal post. It got me thinking in all the right places. Thanks for reading the essay, I hope you enjoy the other two as well. Thank you for this post and your blog in general. My initial goal for this year was to speak more directly. This goal has now morphed into wanting to live an authentic life and taking the measures to do so.
I am very much looking forward to the next two segments of this essay. Again thank you for your thought provoking words. Anyway, I like how your goals have morphed an essentially improved.
I am really digging this. Looking forward to the rest of the series. Get that stuff on eBay. It is immensely important for me to go to the mall and shop today. Wow guys. What an incredible post! Your list of what is really important; family, relationships, friends, health, community building… all of those items are at the top of my list. Minimalism definitely helped me refocus my priorities. Thank you for sharing this. I have to let it settle in and come back and read it again tomorrow. I hope you enjoy the next two essays on Wednesday and Thursday as well.
Good stuff. I did feel pretty silly saying that my clothes felt super important to me, but I think it was the point. I would feel totally fine telling people that dance is one of the most important things in my life. You are correct, that is the point.
It sure does feel silly, right? Dance certainly sounds like an important thing for you, like writing mainly fiction writing is important for me. I am ALL about bringing the un or sub-conscious beliefs and practices to the conscious and truly examining what surfaces.
I think that the biggest factor here is mindfulness and taking our lives off autopilot. Like you state, we would never say our clothes or belongings are more important than our family, but by living on autopilot, we make choices that speak loudly. Fantastic post, I look forward to the other parts and coming back to digest some more! Bernice PS. This is one of those posts that makes so much sense and is packed with so much truth that it will have me thinking all day.
Thank you Joshua and Ryan!
