220: Simplicity, Joy and Social Change

pm220_550.jpg

When Cecile Andrews asked herself, “What matters?” the answer popped up: “Having time to do the things you want to do.” She simplified her life, quit her full-time job, and started simplicity circles to support others in savoring life. Now she has expanded into neighborhood stop-and-chats and a Gross National Happiness movement. Her latest book advocates broadening the joy in our lives Less is More: Embracing Simplicity for a Healthy Planet, A Caring Economy, and Lasting Happiness. [cecileandrews.com]

    If I could stop and chat with Cecile, I would encourage her to read Finite and Infinite Games. She seems to have succeeded in making simplicity a finite game.

    What a terrific message! Way to go, Janaia and Cecile. Despite moments of anger and despair at the state of the world, I often think about how there is such a joy in wanting less stuff and living more simply, and that peak oil is a blessing! Thank you for spreading the good news, Peak Moment.

    “A finite game is played for the purpose of winning, an infinite game for the purpose of continuing the play… Infinite players are not serious actors in any story, but the joyful poets of a story that continues to originate what they cannot finish.” Dan, do you see Cecile as trying to “win” at simplicity? Or being too serious?? Or could you elaborate on your comment please? Thank you.
