Not many people today live simple. We tend to make it all as complicated as we can - to create drama, to put moneymaking first, to get obsessed with everyday matters. Very few have remained or returned to the easier to achieve and still sweeter things in life.
There is a great joy in something as simple as growing your own food. In the evening when you put on the table a salad, produced by your own hands, you feel like your day really mattered. Doing it is something common, that does not pretend in any way to be sophisticated. It needs just love and some patience, but it provides rewards, greater than most jobs can offer.
Most people living in a more simple way are not just farmers - they are happier, healthier farmers. They don't stress out, they don't get allergies.
They have found a balance with nature, that would provide them calmness and in the meanwhile would give them everything they have deserved. It is the fairest deal one can make, that I can think of.
