The shape of things

Let’s start with a simple question to stimulate your imagination for a second: You are asked to reduce all objects that surround you into the three basic shapes: a square, a circle, and a triangle.
                             
I’m sure most of you have already imagined your entire room invaded by these as you start feeling hesitated by seeing all your things change into equal repetitive shapes. Now imagine all those shapes popping like balloons and dissolving into the air. You are left with only one shape of each type: a circle, a square, and a triangle, and that’s it.

Your room has all of the sudden turned into an empty space that houses only three things reduced at this point to the three main shapes. You can now go on and continue your life with only these essential shapes. I might have moved on a little bit too fast but you get the point, right? 

Having excess in your life is just an example of how many things are just filling in space with no purpose. When not paying attention to what these objects add into your daily life you are consistantly adding things in a continuous and endless loop convinced about the fact that you “need” all these things. 

As we often hold beliefs on things being useful in our life we also forget to dig deeper and make an effort to distinguish between objects that serve a purpose and those that are simply filling in an empty space that could be replaced by other non-materialist things.

Start by taking a step at a time as you watch those balloons popping one by one, instead of all of them at the same time. That hesitant feeling starts to shape into something different.

What does that feel like now?
