I know all about living simply...it's easy - have no money left over for discretionary spending.
After having paid the rent, and installments on power, petrol and a debt or two, I have just enough money left over for food - and lately, i even tend to run out of that. My only 'luxury' is that once a fortnight i buy some incense, and even that I try to get when it's discounted.
Poverty - it works!
Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."
