Leaving for Japan

Currently, I am in the process of going through the normal routine one goes through to move including: packing up possessions, selling possessions, giving away possessions, and throwing away possessions. This time really makes me think about how it is nice to really simplify our lives with all of the possessions we accumulate over time. This also made me realize that there is a lot of emotional attachment to every-day mundane regular items! This article really comes to mind at a time like this:

Jesus' own words come to mind as well:

"And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth." - Luke 12:15 KJV

What is really important?
