This I Believe Today

I believe in so much that it is hard for me to choose just a few words.  I love the notion of voluntary simplicity. The more we do with less the better.  Is it just doing less? Is it just feeling more and just being?  We make matters more complicated than they need to be. We lose sight of what really matters.  Living happily is my vision. What if we live everyday to the best of our ability and do as much good as possible?  We live our lives to the fullest, not separating but merging as many aspects as possible.  Making fewer distinctions and separations allows me to live life meaningfully and passionately.  There is meaning in it all. I may not know it all yet and may never know it, but trusting that it is there.  Trusting my instincts and being intuitive enable me to see the good in most things and continue to move forward, taking many with me on the same path. At the same time, I let others pass through or cross my path or run passed me.  So, live life to the fullest with its bumps and bruises along the way.  Learning occurs when we have to struggle the most. Experience has taught me that there is always going to be a way out or beyond it.  It may take longer sometimes; however, it is all worth it in the end.

 

My pledge

I vow to live according to as many voluntary simplicity principles as possible.  I vow to be the best I can be and to do the best I can do.  I strive for happiness and be there for others whenever I can. I will take care of as many relationships as possible in the human and nonhuman world.  I will change the “ I” to “we” whenever I can.
