‘Cause, both the body and the mind get happily fat as life’s temptations are too yummy for them to resist.

Excuse me… Did I hear you blabber something just now? Did you say ‘give up on pleasures and be lean & simple’? Are you nuts? We just started. We aren’t sages. Not as yet.

It’s just about knowing how things work. And, how they don’t. Once that realization happens, the lifestyle changes. Just like that.
