On Minimalism

King Solomon Five Truths

King Solomon’s five truths above are really a good set of baseline—foundation, so to speak—for minimalism lifestyle.

Minimalism is not only a matter of removing clutters from your life, be them physical or mental, but deep down there is an old wisdom on which minimalism lies.

Minimalism is about focusing on what really matters. All the essentials.

It focuses on the least needed to make the most of life. In this perspective, abundance of things is not an evil. Our way of consumption is. Compulsive consumption is the real evil, of never enough.

What matters to you in the physical level, and how would you decide to use it to add values to your life as a whole?

That, I think, is the real question.

Pace e Bene. 🙂
