Conscious Freedom Essay Series

Freedom Joshua Fields Millburn

In January 2011 we published a three-part essay series called Conscious Freedom in three separate places:

  1. Everybody Worships Something (on Becoming Minimalist)
  2. I Am Not the Center of the Universe (on Exile Lifestyle)
  3. Awareness: The Most Precious Kind of Freedom (in Simplicity: Essays)

All three essays attempt to display the value of the totally obvious and the concept of freedom in our lives and how it relates to consumerism and other pernicious cultural imperatives we take for granted. Special thanks to Joshua Becker and Colin Wright, respectively, for allowing us to publish the first two essays on their sites.
