We tend to collect things over a lifetime that begin to weigh us down and make our lives more complex - clutter requires maintenance. Moving provides a unique juxtaposition of perspectives - on one hand we realize that we can live just fine with a few basic necessities, but on the other hand we see the enormity of our tendency to collect "stuff."
Eliminating clutter and living simply enables a certain clarity and focus on life that we tend to lose in the noise of the every day. It's also an apt metaphor for the rest of our lives - personally, professionally, and spiritually.
