Doing with less

I can understand why some people today are finding a renewed interest in the philosophy of Stoicism. After all, there is an appealing quality to the idea of a reduced distraction with wordly things which take us away from inner peace by adopting a type of minimalism; the primary goal being to focus on things we can control and leave the rest the variability of the universe. This philosophy predates Christianity, but there was some belief in the divine intervention of Zeus as part of its structure.

In one sense, today's minimalists are taking a page from this philosophy which has always existed in some form over the centuries, and I myself am finding an increasing comfort and joy in doing with less than I ever have before.
