Growing up in a society where more is best:
The more you have… the bigger the house… the more gadgets… the most amount of clothes… shoes… bags… more you travel… more friends… larger family… more to do…days filled… more food… bigger portions… more success…more choices… more words…
More, more and more.
So here we are in ‘The Land of More’, where has this gotten us?
Stressed, spiritually empty, tired, overwhelmed, and obsessed, over thinking, no time to sit and stare, and no room for contemplation…
Our mind reflects our external world, if more is the theme, then the mind speeds up and creates the pace required to live in ‘The Land of More’.
With more things and keeping ourselves too busy, our mind is fuelled to keep up.
What is the problem?
Simple, if you want to feel stressed then remain of ‘The Land of More’, or you can choose to feel at peace and at ease living with less.
Children and animals know this instinctively, they need very little to be happy; it is the grownups that have perpetuated this addiction to more.
Take a moment and imagine having less… less things to do… time for quiet… a few items of clothes to choose from… fewer things… no clutter… there is time to be listened to…the grass can be felt under your bare feet… you taste your food…breathe consciously…
With less, you have cleared a path for your imagination to spark and for life to have more meaning, beyond the busyness.
Take some time to think about how you can create less in your life.
