At work I had the pleasure of meeting a rather cool, creative, interesting little gal who is pursuing a dream of hers in the digital media world. Her passion, her focus, is with the concept of minimalism which wiki describes as, “any style or design in which the simplest and fewest elements are used to create the maximum effect.”
She is the creator of HELLOMINIMAL, a site dedicated to keep you updated on the latest in minimal design and sources of inspiration because she believes simplicity is the new black. Her philosophy: Why overcomplicate things in an already complicated world? Her works expands from minimal design in home, to fashion, to design, to travel, and it’s all pretty sweet. Go check it out, learn, get intrigued, and share!
Currently she is working on gaining sponsors and advertising to launch her site to the public, so spread the word of HELLOMINIMAL and help her get it out onto the digital media map!
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”—Steve Jobs (2005 commencement address at Stanford University)
May your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless… - 1 Thessalonians 5:23
“Your whole spirit…” The great, mysterious work of the Holy Spirit is in the deep recesses of our being which we cannot reach. Read Psalm 139 . The psalmist implies - “O Lord, You are the God of the early mornings, the God of the late nights, the God of the mountain peaks, and the God of the sea. But, my God, my soul has horizons further away than those of early mornings, deeper darkness than the nights of earth, higher peaks than any mountain peaks, greater depths than any sea in nature. You who are the God of all these, be my God. I cannot reach to the heights or to the depths; there are motives I cannot discover, dreams I cannot realize. My God, search me.”
Do we believe that God can fortify and protect our thought processes far beyond where we can go? “… the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7). If this verse means cleansing only on our conscious level, may God have mercy on us. The man who has been dulled by sin will say that he is not even conscious of it. But the cleansing from sin we experience will reach to the heights and depths of our spirit if we will “walk in the light as He is in the light” (1 John 1:7). The same Spirit that fed the life of Jesus Christ will feed the life of our spirit. It is only when we are protected by God with the miraculous sacredness of the Holy Spirit that our spirit, soul, and body can be preserved in pure uprightness until the coming of Jesus-no longer condemned in God’s sight.
We should more frequently allow our minds to meditate on these great, massive truths of God.
