Tony Fry writes that:
'To become a human (super-being) implies, as Micheal Tanner has pointed out, living in exile, outside the norm, with a great deal of self-sufficiency. Life so lived has to be made rewarding, provide pleasures, be attractive and not rest on idealism or moralism. It has to be designed to work as an agency for all.'
I've been thinking about living simply a lot in the past year, including what holds me back from a more simple life. I think making these kinds of decisions, requires a certain level of letting go, which in my case might mean letting go of the fear of social isolation. Or perhaps there's another way? I think this is what I'm interested in exploring through the simple living project.
