Live Simply - Rohr
When you agree to live simply
people cease to be possessions and objects for your consumption and use.
Your lust for others to serve you, your need for other people’s admiration,
your desire to use other people as a commodity for your personal pleasure
slowly fades away.
When you agree to live simply you are free to enjoy
but you never let enjoyment become your master.
You practice non-addiction every day by letting go.
When you agree to live simply, time is not money any more, time is life itself.
When you agree to live simply you can find a natural solidarity
with people on the bottom or at the edges of life because you stop idealizing the climb
and finally realize that there isn’t a top anyway.
