Profound vs superficial minimalism

  • The minimalism of things argues that getting rid of possessions means ridding yourself of trouble. 
  • The minimalism of ideas means stripping away excess to see that the world is more troubled and difficult, and more wondrous and full of possibility.

The question is whether you accept less in order to assert your will more efficiently, or whether you assert your will to receive the reward of self-diminishment.
