Just how much money do we really need to live the lives of the rich? If being rich means not having to worry about money anymore and if it means living a life of idleness, then we might be surprised how little we need to live such a life. Ordinary people have found ways to live simple but rewarding lifestyles without having to earn fortunes to pay for it. These people of leisure have come to understand that being stress-free is the greatest of all luxuries and achieving this object is a lot easier than anyone has imagined. But such has been our conditioning that we have come to accept society's interpretation of what is acceptable and what is not, what is "cool" and what is not, and we have enslaved ourselves to this value system. But there is no reason to continue to labor under such delusions. We can break free of it all.
