Engagement with the material world is unavoidable, and measuring its worth according to my needs feels cold and self-centered. [… Therefore I] shifted my view of objects from possessions to companions […]. Discarding the concept of ownership means that objects are free to come and go naturally. 

Before making a purchase, I used to consider if the thing was worthy of the space and money it would cost. It worked, but it felt miserly and judgmental. The process was full of skepticism and devoid of joy.

Instead, now I ask if I can provide a proper place for that object to rest, not so unlike taking in a new pet. Is there a place for this thing in my life? […] 

When my appreciation for an object has diminished or its place in my life has changed, it’s that same respect that requires me to send it on its journey to a new home. It doesn’t make sense to stack unused and unloved objects in my closet, no more sense than it makes to imprison my friends in my house indefinitely just in case I feel like hanging out with them someday.
