The rock Stars!

It’s a very old song but I was humming it the other day and the following lines struck a chord with me:

 “Imagine no possessions

I wonder if you can

No need for greed or hunger

A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people

Sharing all the world……

You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only one

I hope someday you’ll join us

And the world will live as one”


I love idealizing and being a dreamer. I have also pictured a world filled with love and no boundaries.

Answer this honestly, how much importance do you attach to your possessions? This world is an amazingly beautiful jungle. We are all creatures who are meant to be free. Notice the animals; they are so free to roam about, the birds that migrate when the weather changes, fish that swim from one place to the other and the list can go on.

But as humans, we have loaded ourselves with way too much stuff. Another honest answer: would you like to take a world tour? I know it’s not a feasible option for everyone, but does the thought excite you? Out inherent nature is that of greed and selfishness. This makes us collect and share less.

You might own 10 cars, but the real experience is in strolling along a beautiful quiet trail. You might own10 AC’s but the beauty is to be outdoor and see the sun set or to enjoy cool breeze along the beach. I love the tag line of one of the visa cards: there are something’s money can’t buy…

I envision a time when my husband & I do reduce our possessions by donating or giving away so that there is more space for spontaneity.  So that, there is space for us.

I just can’t explain the lightness you feel when your attachment to possessions dies out. Because then you start new attachments, with fresher things like nature and people.


I recently read this article about Sir Mick Jagger and his ways to reduce clutter. He doesn’t keep any of his awards because he prefers to live in a minimalist home and is adamant having shelves of prizes on display would ruin the atmosphere.  So inspiring coming from the rock legend!

    Lets quit our jobs and we will travel the world. There is so much too see and experience. Lets leave the load behind and be free, clutterfree and enjoy the sunsets that you have mentioned. Life is too short to take so long to decide.

    • feel in love with your comment. but the point is not to leave the load behind but to remove the load completely from our lives so that there is almost never a thought about loads and what to do with the load. if the load is removed permenantly, quitting our jobs is the simpler task.
