I was reading an interview with Minimalist Everett Bogue, author of the e-book 'The Art of Being Minimalist' on the blog hilife2b.com. In the interview, Everett had a few quotes that made me pause and reflect. The quotes are as follows:
*I believe we need to re-imagine our civilization as an interconnected network of people who own less and live free.
*Location independence and minimalist freedom aren’t going to be a mainstream reality for a really long time, because there will always be a large section of society that isn’t ready to embrace new things.
There’s nothing normal about being free, apparently.
*Reduce your life expenses to the basis of existence
*I’ve been thinking a lot recently about my own impact on the planet. I think we’re at a moment in time when we’re dangerously close to destroying everything — I also think we’re at a moment that will be seen as a breakthrough point, when we stopped consuming and started focusing on having experiences, being healthy, and creating human civilization that will be here for the future.
*I believe our own personal freedom is deeply intertwined with the health of the planet. To pursue one goal is to pursue the other.
