I Mahatma Gandhi was once asked to describe an ideal lifestyle and he is responded by saying 'simple living and high thinking'.
Simple living is the right way to live. one does not get lasting happiness by living a flashy lifestyle. We do not need branded clothes to wear or wardrobe full of designer clothes. simple fare would be far better than straining our system with huge variety of Exotic food frequently. To commute one does not need top end vehicle- I am not advocating public transport for those who can afford private transportation. however no point in having huge fuels guzzling vehicles to move around.
High thinking is what will help us in our evolution path. Human beings are better because they can think far better than any other beings. we should make use of this faculty to probe further into the real purpose of our existence and what we need to do to reach our goals.
just look all around; look at the ocean,look at the sky.How can you manage not to be simple and not to be humble?
Most people try to become clever every day but I attempt to become more simple and uncomplicated every day........
