We all want to live happily.
Everyone can do it, there are no requirements on high income or some equipment that is difficult to get. That’s the main point – we are capable to live happy right at this moment provided that have “enough” of our basic needs.
The latter is quite simply enough food, shelter, clothing and medicine. It would be irrational to ask a man to be virtuous if they cannot get at least this right for their livelihood. Hence it is very important that we all strive to achieve some sort of universal income, it will allow to be kind to ourselves and others, do not overwork, have guaranteed income, have a choice and a liberty to engage in volunteering to help others. Everything else is an extra. Surely, these extras are our “wants”, not needs. Other marketers are working hard to make us believe that we need the stuff they are trying to sell.
The livelihood of nonviolence is a concept of “economy of enough” for every person.
It doesn’t mean every one of us will love to become an entrepreneur and own their own business. We are trying to achieve a life in which earning a living can be mindful and ethical. How grateful it would be not to stress out of a constant need to grow? After all, there is a point where your needs are met and your business is striving!
We want to hear from entrepreneurs, businesses and governments – what could be that ‘economy of enough’ for you? Is there a number or a formula in mind?
