The Good Life: Sustainable and Simple
This blog is about my own journey to sustainability—getting outside of the box and being more authentically human. It’s about not viewing 'wealth' as money, but as something much more holistic and broad. The ideas presented here come from my newest book, The Good Life: How to Create a Sustainable and Fulfilling Lifestyle. The recent global markets downturn is an opportunity to reintegrate with our most essential selves. It is a time, not without some suffering, that we can step outside of our roles and inhabit our souls. But, it’s not just my journey: it’s one that anyone can choose. Each person has to make their own map, find their own way. My work has broken open the ground before you as surely as if I'd gotten up a little earlier than you did and, forceful in the powerful morning light, turned over a garden of healthy, vital soil. It's all there for you, ready, if you choose to dig and plant.
