Plain living and a high thinking are recommended for everyone. Simplicity means to find balance in our life by which our mind, our body are in the most optimum condition. One should not eat too much or eat too little, sleep too much or sleep too little.If we do anything in extremes, then our whole consciousness becomes very much infected and affected.
Just like a wife of one of the dictators of eastern Asia had over 7000 pairs of shoes. If she rotates them, she will probably wear only one every twenty years. Desires are endless, the more we have, the more we need and we are never satisfied. We need to do everything in right proportion as per our requirements.
