In the name of development and progress, we modern humans have complicated our lives way more than needed.
And in the name of paying our bills or advancing our careers or earning a livelihood or being independent, we complicate them even more.
Isn't this true? It is. It most definitely is.
This episode is an attempt from my side to make you, the listener, think deeper on this subject. It is an invitation to reconsider HOW you are leading your life, not WHAT you are doing in it.
We need to have the courage to identify where we are complicating things for ourselves and then to act on these realisations and simplfy them, so that we can focus our energies on our real needs, not the imagined ones.
I build on a real life incident from my life to expand on a quote from Henry David Thoreau's Walden, "The farmer is endeavoring to solve the problem of a livelihood by a formula more complicated than the problem itself."
