Dear Friends, 

as a follow up to my thoughts on business in superfluities and bad examples, I offer a (top ten) list of attitudes and behaviours to follow John Woolman in today's context. These examples are meant to show how I apply the rather abstract thoughts to every day life. They are part of my lived testimony of simplicity.

The one important attitude that I forgot to include in my top ten list is possessions. I think in our society we are way too obsessed about possessions and property rights. If we can let go of owning things, and instead focus of sharing resources for sustainable use, it will contribute greatly to a simpler life. That way, it is not necessary to hold on to possessions long after we have no need for them anymore.

Please find the other ten attitudes and behaviours here: 10 Complex Ways to Lead a Simple(r) Life
