English: A very simple image of some unaspected flowers in a small crack between pavement and cement (Monfalcone (IT), spring 2006). Life will overcome some day, even if manship hurts it so much daily. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

If you try to do the simple life, it can be maddeningly difficult. The needs in life: food, clothing, and shelter, can get so enormous that we get weighed down. The wants can overwhelm. We get trapped in a foggy cloud of consumerism. When we do get a clear moment, it lasts too short of a time to do anything about our possessions. Drowning in these possessions, our lives lose their spiritual value.

I now make time to be spiritual every day. That clear moment has opened a simpler world to me. I am rewriting the rules I live by toward a simpler life. Centered spiritually, the spiritual is THE most important part of the day. Anything else has a lower priority. My view of the world is taken at a slower paced momentum. I make sure I “smell the roses” as much as possible. The simple life grows with the seed of spiritually.
