HOW MUCH DO YOU REALLY NEED?
Almost everything I own now fits in my car, and it feels good. Having a lot of material possessions still creates pressure for me. It will probably change again, but at the moment, my flexibility is too important to me. I'm not ready to completely "settle down" and have a lot of things that I may still have to take care of. But I feel that it's slowly becoming conceivable again.
However, this time with a different feeling than before and a different "importance". I enjoy things, but I don't need them. Especially not to be happy.
What have I done?
I radically cleared out, sold or gave away things. I even let some things go in "fire rituals". What I really need to live fits in my car, and there are still about 4 moving boxes in the basement with documents, for example, that I still need.
It was an incredible liberation, and I am convinced that it was necessary for a real new beginning. Shedding ballast. Creating space for new things. It's amazing how little I really need.
Often we cling to memories, certain objects boost our ego, or we feel we absolutely "need" something.
Why? What does it give you? What feeling or confirmation are you looking for? Is there fear behind it?
"In the end, you only have what you had with you from the beginning. You can only take from this world what you brought with you." Osho
Who are you without your possessions?
