The focus for today's inspiration is:
Simplicity is... being connected to nature.
Simplicity is a key to spiritual growth. Gandhi understood the secret of simplicity. The Shakers sang, “Tis a gift to be simple, tis a gift to be free. Tis a gift to come down where we ought to be.”
Simplicity is being directly connected to nature. Recent research is finally proving what we’ve intuitively know all along.
In one study by cognitive psychologist, David Strayer, twenty-two psychology students scored 50 percent higher on creative problem-solving tasks after three days of wilderness backpacking. Doctors around the world are calling it “The Nature Cure.”
Today's inspiration was excerpted from the InnerSelf.com article:
