Our Giant Footprint

I've finally become aware of why I'm so obsessed with the amount of possessions I have.  In a book by Peter Walsh (It's All Too Much) he asks one to look at meaning of all the clutter.  What I realized is that reducing the amount represents  accepting the end of my life.   I am acutely aware that  when I die all my  worldly good will be  discarded.  Accepting that, I better  start accumulating less and discarding  these things myself rather than leave it to my heirs to  dump.
