There are many mail-order catalogs as well as TV commercials selling clever, useful products that you normally don't really need. I had bought some in the past and they always got tucked away in the end and I never missed them. Our worldly attachments are somewhat like those products, so start detaching yourself from them. A recent example for me was the termination of one magazine subscription. Reading the publication did provide enjoyment, but the information was definitely not something needed for me to live on. One more detachment and life gets uncluttered a bit more. Our goal should be to drop all things that can possibly encroach upon our intimacy with God.
