The idea to sell everything and maybe keep this or that has, I believe, it's basis in the yearnings of the soul. We can be connected to our animal nature to possess things that we believe is instrumental to our happiness or we can be spiritually enlightened and understand that true happiness is never a possession. Something within or without is usually unbalanced and one may be willing perhaps to make big changes in order to effect something new, some new path perhaps. Overall I have never met a person who was not relieved to discard the material things that they believed were instrumental to their lives. Once the debris is cleaned out there is always a lightness to their being and it seems opportunities abound. My ideology is never to be afraid to give and to get rid of. The source is unending and our needs are always fulfilled in the most amazing of ways.
