The Plague of Consumerism

Relinquishing the possessions of the ego
we all amass inside ourselves
is the most demanding form of poverty.

Simplicity immunizes you from the plague of consumerism.

Through simplicity we learn that self-denial
paradoxically leads to true self-fulfillment.
Simplicity allows us to hold the interests
of others above our self-interest.
Real simplicity is true freedom.
