What does it mean to live simply?

What does it mean to ‘live simply’?  Strange enough, I think we know what it DOESN’T mean more than we do what it does mean.

For me, it doesn’t mean going shopping for things I don’t really need.  It doesn’t mean creating or buying into self- or other-made dramas.  It doesn’t mean always trying to get more, be more, accomplish more.

Isn’t it really insane to think we always need more to be happy, peaceful, safe, complete?

Imagine what it means to be content with where you are right now, with what you have right now.  Imagine not worrying about the weeds needing to be pulled, the dusting and vacuuming that calls to you or getting to where you think you want to go on time.

Imagine what it feels like to need nothing, to be content and appreciative with what you already have.  Imagine.

Isn’t living simply really living in the present moment, feeling happy, fulfilled, content and safe?  Is living simply having the prayers of your heart answered and knowing that?

What does living simply mean to you?
