Feeling Full

I realized this morning that simplifying--letting go of possessions, commitments, desires--has allowed me to experience a state of psychic fullness. Not so long ago, I was feeling a lot of anxiety, about where to put all our household stuff, meeting all my commitments, and acquiring all that I wanted. I was experiencing both an overwhelming sensation of fullness as well as scarcity. Actually, I've been letting go of scarcity feelings for some time, but only recognized the effects of that since I started letting go the stuff and the commitments.
