The Quiet Revolution of Voluntary Simplicity

How arrogant we were! We thought that we invented “Simplify and Retire”. It is an ongoing Quiet Revolution-worldwide…It is the concept of accepting a lower income and foregoing¬† consumerism and garnering time and freedom to pursue what makes you happy.

Did you think it was a new concept? There were some pretty important people who thought of it first:

  • Confucius
  • Buddha
  • Diogenes
  • Jesus
  • Mohammed
  • St. Francis
  • The Quakers
  • The Shakers
  • William Morris
  • Henry Thoreau
  • Tolstoy
  • Gahndi
  • Lenin
  • Helen and Scott Nearing

And many more. Certainly we walk the path of some very amazing folks.
