Reducing possessions

28 & 29 May’15 ~QofDay~ Reduce Possessions

If you were prioritizing your possessions to live in a space half as big as you have now what criteria would you use?

History – mostly images on hard-drives. A few family heirlooms, like my Great grandfather’s illuminated address that I am keeping in trust for my son.

I would keep most of my tools, and enough food to survive 6 weeks.

And I don’t want to downsize any more.

We have half an acre, and it is becoming close to productive enough to support us.

Another couple of years and we wont need a lot of external resources for food or energy (solar power systems should be installed up and running).

And that doesn’t necessitate that we disconnect, and it does give us the option.

And if things go to plan, I will have little time for our self contained home, as I will be fully engaged in the process of transcending our market based system and creating universal abundance.
