At 20, I studied abroad in Australia and visited Fiji. I met a local who lived in a beach hut with 8 other people. He was poor as dirt, but happy as a clam. He bought me a bag of snacks and in that moment my life changed.
As globalization and consumerism evolve, we get caught up in the material world. Every poor nation I visited, the people had the clearest minds, were thankful for having food to eat and were some of the happiest people I ever met.
As a yogi, you learn to dispose of your attachment to materialism. The less you have, the less have to lose. And sometimes less is more.
The less you have the happier you are since you appreciate the small things in life (the basics). Living a minimalist life gives you freedom. You are not bogged down (or responsible) for piles of shit that drag you down emotionally, spiritually and physically.
As always, inspired by the sun,
Inspire your Sunday with positive quotes, images, random thoughts & sweet nothings.
