Living with Less
Channeling Minimalism in a Maximalist Society
Capitalism teaches us that the more we buy, the more we consume, the happier we will be. What happens, though, when the consequences of overconsumption result in the obliteration of our world's precious ecosystems? When the purchase of a sleek car does not, actually, bring you true bliss? The minimalist movement rejects the notion that what you buy or what you have determines who you are. It redirects one's attention to the cultivation of experience, of relationships. It reveals the truth that what makes you worthwhile is not external to you but internal.
"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." - Leonardo da Vinci, 1452
