    “… all the money I spent and then gave away, [...] was an investment in me getting to know me.”

    What a brilliant way of looking at it!

    I LOVE this…you collected all the thoughts (and more) that have been rattling around in my head for the longest time. And how timely as today I am starting a massive pre-Christmas clean-out and clean-up. It has been occurring to me lately that I have not been true to my core values and how I want to live my life…it takes courage in this day and age to be different, so thanks for the encouragement, Nathalie.

  3. Thank you for explaining those two very important concepts in yoga. Unfortunately, most of us do not have a true spiritual training in the West, which would introduce us to such fundamental principles that truly impact our happiness. I appreciate your story!

  4. The funny things Yoga does to you :)
    For me it wasn’t a conscious influence, but I started minimizing my things as well about a year after I started doing Yoga. I never looked into the spiritual things closer though, meaning I never studied anything about it consciously, but I guess the message still came through.

    This is an amazing story. Thank you for sharing!

    I think, very often the mess in our houses or flats equate the mess in our brains and thoughts. Cleaning out the old stuff (physical and mental) brings us room for emptiness and stillness we are seeking for. It’s a challenge to deal with it when it comes (beginning to look inside you because now there is a lack of distractions outside of you), but it’s the source of great happiness and inner freedom we can never achieve by possessing things.

  6. What an inspiring story, Nathalie. Thank you for sharing. I really feel so much lighter without all the “stuff.” It is a challenge not to replace it. Even though I don’t really want for anything, I find that old habits are very hard to break – but so worth it!

  7. A very inspiring and heartfelt story!
