Ritual of Simplicity (Excerpts from the Book: The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari)

This ritual requires you to live a simple life.One must never live in the thick of thin things. Focus only on your priorities,those activities which are truly meaningful.Your life will be uncluttered, rewarding and exceptionally peaceful.

Living simply means reducing your needs:stop wearing expensive clothes, you do not have to read six news papers a day,stop needing to be available to everyone all the time, eat less, maybe become a vegetarian.Stop picking up the phone every time it rings.Stop wasting time reading junk mail, spend more time with your kids, cut on the club membership,and reduce eating out every now and then, simple things that clutter our lives.

Lifelong happiness does come through striving to realize your dreams. You are at your best when you are moving forward.The key is not to make your happiness contingent on finding that elusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow rather enjoying the journey while at it.
