We are wrapped in technology and bound by the rhythms that they require. Instead of rejoicing in our freedoms, we find ourselves tied to the electronics that reduce our humanity. Time is devoted to the mundane rituals that bring little happiness. In this condition we will find ourselves losing the rich complexities of life around us and it may be time to begin shedding the unnecessary and returning to simplicity.

To live in the light and enjoy the simplistic nature, you may wish to delve into the center of what you truly need

Reducing One Layer at a Time

Adopting a more simplistic life should be peeled back, a layer at a time. Removing the exterior will reveal different levels and each must be approached on an individual basis. Reducing time at the computer can mean taking additional ‘me-time’. That, in turn, can transcend into adding walks within a natural environment or even added playtime with family and pets. Less time observing television and social media opens the doors to those wonders that you once had in your life.

Examine What You Need, Not What You Want

There is beauty in fulfillment and this can encroach on examining the needs of your heart and soul. To live in the light and enjoy the simplistic nature, you may wish to delve into the center of what you truly need. This may be the opposite of what you think that you want. A moment of relaxation in the sunshine, reading that book will entice you to a higher level of devotion. This is the level that can open your humanity and encourage the true center of your being.
