Why simple living?

“…there are often many things we feel we should do that, in fact, we don’t really have to do. Getting to the point where we can tell the difference is a major milestone in the simplification process” 

Elaine St. James

Choose simple living…

As an antidote to culturally induced achievement neurosis,

As a form of psychological hygiene,

As a method of financial security where a broader range of lower skill occupations can suffice,

As a protest against waste, excess and destruction,

As a means to support human ecology,

As a more just way to live fairly with other people,

As a way to lead life less at the mercy of external influences, and

As a  expression of joy, happiness and kindness.
