Minimalist Living Vs Abundant Living

I am seeing scores of articles and books written on Minimalist Living. The one book that triggered me to write this is "The more of less" by Joshua Becker.

All books and blogs are written as though it will bring a great deal of happiness to life, or things that will facilitate happier living. I have lived as a minimalist during the 5 years in college, with all my belongings filling into one 21 inch suitcase. I have lived a life of abundance with hoards of junk. Life is the same on both these instances. I dont think life was more happier just because i was a minimalist. I think minimalism may bring a sense of relief while you transition from abundance to minimalism, similar to a "Joy" that will come to you when you transition from "Minimalism" to "abundance".
