July 12 is simplicity day.
The consumption society has made us feel that happiness lies in having things, and has failed to teach us the happiness of not having things--Emily Boulding
We, who have so much, must do more to help those in need. And most of all, we must live simply, so that others may simply live--Ed Begley Jr
Simple Living is:
•freedom from stuff and over-consumption.
•living intentionally and with integrity.
•caring for the Earth and Earth's inhabitants.
•an act of faith and a spiritual discipline.
•a political act and an economic revolution.
•time tested and patriotic in the spirit of Thoreau.
•anti-empire and pro-community.
•our future as a species and a planet.
What will you do tomorrow to try to live more simply?
