If we have the Gift of Simplicity in our life then we are blessed. We will be fulfilled. We will be much happier more often because we have our priorities right. Simplicity cuts out worry. It enables us to breathe. It enables us to see life clearly. We don’t need all this stuff. We don’t need it. So let’s cultivate a love of simplicity in our life and we will find our joyousness increasing, our sense of freedom growing, our relationships thriving and our bank balance right where it needs to be. No more, no less. And because life is life, it always has its cycles. There will be spontaneous windfalls, and there will be more spartan years, but that is all just the ebb and flow of fate. Simplicity thrives anywhere, regardless of external conditions. It thrives because it is rooted in the essential, in love, in freedom and in the creative human spirit that can turn any situation to its advantage through seeing it simply and behaving accordingly.”
