Today is National Simplicity Day in USA
What EXACTLY is Simplicity ?
The quality or condition of being easy to understand and do
The quality or condition of being plain or uncomplicated in form or design (1)
The fact that something is ordinary, traditional or natural and not complicated
The fact that something is plain and has no decoration (2)
So here we have kingpin Google and a well-known dictionary giving us their version of the word Simplicity.
We can all agree that Simple is not complicated and we know if something is simple it is easy to understand.
It would be easy to do something if it was classed as simple because it would be uncomplicated.
This website is called Simple Living Global.
Does the title give away what it is about
This website is plain and certainly has no decoration
For most it would be something ordinary and the content is saying something about the word traditional – let’s get Back to Basics.
Nothing is working in our world and it is full of Complications so why not bring in simplicity in absolutely every area of our living way and see what happens.
On that note, this website is committed and wholeheartedly dedicated to presenting Another Way that is all about living Simple, because having tried and tested the author claims it works and so do those that have used the presentations as part of their Simple Living.
Imagine if this website was called Complicated Existing
Sounds strange, weird or funny but the truth is many of us are choosing to live a very complicated lifestyle which feels like we are existing, as we do not feel alive and full of vitality every single day.
Do any of us have simplicity in our lives
What would Simple Living be like for us
Have we even considered what Simple Living would be like in daily life.
Have we ever wondered what life would be like without any Complications.
Have we been dreaming of the day when life becomes Simple in every way.
Do we wish our Crazy lifestyle would end if it was easy to swap it for Simple Living.
Do we hope for the day that life is simple and there is no tension.
Do we know anyone out there who chooses Simple Living as a way of life.
Do we think we are missing out on something if we opt for Simple Living.
Do we think we would want More and more as simple feels like it is just not enough.
Do we ever consider what might happen if we bring simplicity into any issue that we may have.
Do we wish for days where all is Simple and it feels like life is on track.
Enter Simple Living Global
This website is all about Simple Living
In other words, a way of living that is Simple
No more Complications = no more nonsense
No more existing because we are really living our life in the Flow Zone.

USA | National Simplicity Day | 12 July 2019
The official website is telling us to get Back to Basics and celebrate National Simplicity Day
The date is in honour of Henry David Thoreau born on that day in 1817
He and his contemporary transcendentalists believed in simple terms that people have knowledge about themselves that “transcends” all the external forces in their lives.
They advocated for living a simpler life to better get in touch with those feelings.
“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler”
Henry David Thoreau (3)
The fact we want to celebrate on the day that this philosopher Thoreau was born is saying something.
Was he making sense back then and we are only just considering his wise words 200 years later.
What was this man on about when he and others who were like minded were saying that we have the knowledge about ourselves.
Is this some prophecy or are there amongst us today, those who actually know this to be true.
What was he communicating to us about ‘external forces’ and is this something we all need to be aware of.
Can living a simple life help us to deal with the ‘external forces’ in our lives because we are better equipped and can get in touch with those feelings.
Is this what he was saying to us and we are only just getting it
As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler
What is he telling us here –
We need to make our life simple and if we do, then the laws of the universe will be simpler
Does that mean that we have no chance of ever knowing what the laws of the universe are if we continue with our busy-ness and crazy complicated lifestyle choices.
Does it mean the laws of the universe will be simple for us but only if we make our life simple first and keep bringing in ways to simplify even more.
If we for one moment, consider what Henry David Thoreau was telling us, could we learn something that would support our evolution.
For the record Simple Living Global have been presenting blogs and articles from their Back to Basics program on this website since 2016.
We are on the front foot because we know that Simple Living actually works and delivers results.
Our World is in a mess and no one can negate that fact.
We have stuff going on every day, which many of us are not even aware of.
We have Children with mental illness and we don’t know what to do.
We have illness and dis-ease at epic levels and our health systems are at breaking point.
We are finding ways to continue distracting ourselves and there seems to be an un-rest.
We are busy entertaining our minds and seeking where we can find comfort in this.
We are seeking experiences and our minds keep creating more pictures of what we want.
We are holding tension inside our bodies and we look for Solutions to not feel that.
We are living with a constant un-settlement and yet we do nothing about it.
We are demanding more self-medication – our drugs of choice to numb out what we feel.
We are blaming the Drug dealers but not looking at where the actual demands are coming from.
We are busy championing this and that but not looking at who is behind endorsing this stuff.
We know there is no safe limit for Alcohol but yet we continue with research to prove this wrong.
We know CAFFEINE keeps us stimulated and without it we would be simply exhausted.
We know SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT but say nothing as that is the easy option.
We Blame –
AND anything and everything about why things happen to us, but never once Stop and take Responsibility for the choices we are making.
We bury our issues and the misery that comes with it by living an irresponsible lifestyle.
We moan about work day in and day out, instead of being Honest and saying our lifestyle choices are not supporting us to do the job.
We go to work and think about our next Holiday as it helps us ignore the agony we feel.
We are always searching for the next trend, the next Diet and the next fashion thing but it seems to leave us feeling even more empty inside.
We have this need to upload on Social Media endless times a day and at the end, we still feel dis-connected from this world we have created.
We want the day where we feel content with what we have in the knowing it is enough, but it never seems to come.
We feel self fury and envy at the choices another is making when they just Get on with It.
We want the JOY we see in others who are getting on with a life of Simple Living.
We want others to make our home simple for us but we have this habit of not Letting Go.
We want to end our Holding On habits but that would mean a life where things become Simple Living.
We want the manual, the handout, the book, the audio for Simple Living but we do not want to take the actual steps and make the changes.
Simple Living is a way of living that supports us to work in harmony with what is within our body and all around us.
We have the space to cut the nonsense out of our life and lock in stuff that has meaning, value and purpose.
What is possible when we choose Simple Living is beyond anything we can work out with our so called intelligent mind.
This website is living confirmation of what is possible when one chooses to live a life of simplicity.
