Could It All Be So Simple?
I wonder: What if life doesn’t have to be complicated?
One thing that has really motivated and inspired me lately is the concept of minimalism and reductionism. Not just minimalism as a lifestyle but as an art movement, minimal house music, and everything related to the concept of less being more.
I’ve learned that being present in the moment allows you to witness the potentiality of those objects in your life. Now you can see the world with much-needed clarity.
Objects can help us make sense of an otherwise weird and crazy world— but what if those definitions and expectations of our reality and the things we think define our world become obstacles?
Due to our unwillingness to change or let go, we can find the very objects that gave us joy are creating barriers around our imaginative power.
In spaciousness, I found freedom. In less, I found myself. Without, I gain all.
How much of the things do we think matter in life actually do? I started to think about my last days on earth— what would really matter to me in my life? I realized that the things I thought would matter to me or seem necessary in my day-to-day life were quite trivial.
I want to focus on the things In life that make me feel like I can think clearly and without pressure from artificial forces. Building a healthy relationship with objects and living more intentionally may be the key we need to unlock the door of true freedom and simplicity in life.
