I’ve always bought into the simple life. I innately believe that living with simplicity gives us peace, over and above any materialistic wealth.
Living simply, means we can focus in the moment, with what we have rather than what we’d like. We must learn to focus on our understanding of what simplicity means so that we can add that to our life, not in terms of what we give up.
Simplicity is about beauty: seeing beauty in the simplest of things. The simple things are the least complicated. Without simplicity we won’t have a life, well not in the true sense. Instead what we will have is an existence.
Simplicity needs nurturing and if we continue to nurture we can have peace. Peace gives us a feeling of wholeness, achieved by us taking out the clutter, emotionally and physically and by being simple at heart. It’s not difficult to develop these qualities.
We’re human, we evolve, but we must have the inner desire to change, to bring simplicity into our lives. We must want to acquire and to live the simple life with simple thoughts. With simple thoughts we’re humbled and grounded.
The more simple our lives, the more understanding we have of our roots and of our experiences, the less likely we’re going to run from them. We’re also more likely to think about life in its simplicity without things having to be so complicated, after all it’s not our life that’s complicated, it’s us who makes it complicated.
