OpinionI should give away everything that I own. I can do, it's not a problem. My photographs and paypal balance not included.

Age 34, my Mum is just out of hospital, and will shortly be sleeping in the next room. But she will be OK. I'm staying up until not long after midnight. For just a personal reason, but nothing so personal that it could not be shared.

Sorry to keep posting but I want to ensure that the avatar/heaven on earth concept will be followed through as well as possible.

Maybe the language or cultural barrier prevents me from fully understanding the comments, I can only say that it's great to have relatives out of the hospital and back at home. About the topic, don't do it, you'll have to buy it all back.

I agree with BorgClown. You might not miss your possessions at first, but nostalgia is (or becomes) a powerful thing. OTOH, some people might benefit from a break from their existing life.

If someone wants to be free of material possessions, would it be less satisfying to just give it all one person? I suppose part of the morally uplift is doing the greatest good possible while getting rid of it all, so giving it all to your best friend would be kinda anticlimactic.

It's difficult to imagine that one person would genuinely want all of your possessions in the first place?

I read more stupid drivel here than anywhere else. Why would someone want to give away everything that they own?

@Lee J Haywood: I seriously doubt anyone would need simultaneously all of my possessions, a subset of it is of little use to me, and I'm pretty sure a different subset of them would be useless to almost anyone.

@DigitalBoss: What about monks, don't they give up material possessions? Nuns? To be fair, modern asceticism isn't, that's why the concept of renouncing all material possessions is so alien to us.

I don't really have anything to posses and I can pretty much get extra money to continue the things I really want to continue with, it would make my life more difficult but not unlivable.

There are many possessions which are essentially useless, some possessions which are replaceable (but probably useful enough to be almost necessary) and some which are irreplaceable. My sunglasses are irreplaceable in the sense that they have a unique design and I cannot buy new ones which are the same, even though technically I could buy any old sunglasses if I lost the ones I have. But I don't wish to lose them because they're excellent.
