8 Good Reasons Why You Should Let Go of Clutter

We are shallow because we have become enslaved by gross materialism, the glitter of gold and its equivalents, for which reason we think that only the material goods of this earth can satisfy us and we must therefore grab as much as can while we are able.” ~ F. Sionil Jose

We live in a world that encourages us to buy as much as possible, and to clutter our lives with “stuff.” Because apparently, the more stuff we have and the bigger and shinier it is, the more valuable we are and the better our lives will get. But is that really the case?

According to Leonardo Da Vinci, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Simplicity, not complexity. And I agree with him.

According to Leonardo Da Vinci, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Simplicity, not complexity. And I happen to agree with him.

Here are 8 good reasons why letting go of the clutter in your life:

1. Clutter takes the life out of your life.

Since everything is energy and energy needs to flow freely, by cluttering your environment with stuff, and by refusing to let go of everything that no longer serves you, you create a lot of stagnant energy in your environment and you take the life out of your life.

“Clutter is stuck energy. The word “clutter” derives from the Middle English word “clotter,” which means to coagulate – and that’s about as stuck as you can get.” ~ Karen Kingston

The stuff you have, the material things you possess, and all the clutter you have been accumulating in your life up until this moment says nothing about your value or self-worth. It only says that you are someone who likes to gather a lot stuff. That’s all it says.

“The territorialism and desire to possess things comes directly from the ego, which strives to own and control things. Your spirit already knows you own nothing. It is a matter of realizing that your happiness does not depend on your ownership of things. They help you in your journey but they are not the journey itself.” ― Karen Kingston
