The Simple Way
Choose Life (real life!)
Real practices, real food, and real adventures by in-joying the sacrament of the present moment
There are no overly stringent requirements for what you must accomplish in a given day or week beyond doing your duty with
gratitude and contentment—in all other choices for living, focus simply on
being present in the moment and on abiding in the presence of God. Allow yourself to be the truly yourself in the reality of the present moment, taking it as a gift of God's grace, whether the moment is easy or hard, and share the experience with those whom God has given you to bless and to be a blessing unto you.
Therefore, avoid fake living—diminish idle screen time as much as possible, in favor of reading books, enjoying the beauty of God's world, doing creative tasks, and interpersonal time.
Feed on true goodness—not processed or unhealthy foods—choose real food, eaten at normal times, to meet (but not exceed) the real needs of the body.
The bottom line is this: live along the grain of reality, which is nothing less than the love of God experienced in the particularity of the present moment of your own life.
