Simplicity is the best way to narrow our focus, one which is most important
Stripping away the layers of greed, peeling back the material to reach the spiritual will bring great rewards, happiness, contentment, peace.
It is not the things we need, but inner joy
The joy that can only come when our eyes are not focused on earthly desires, but the desire to know God, to serve him, and to love Him with all our hearts, minds, and souls.
That should be our greatest goal.
*this was written by a friend's grandmother many years ago*
