Why Do we Make Life so Difficult?

I recently came across this TED talk by Jon Jandai, which basically talks about how we as humans make our own lives complex. You’re first reaction could be that my life is really simple, but take a few moments to watch this talk, you may find good meaning in it.

Jon compares us to animals and birds, which we in the modern day have got so disconnected from, how they build a nest in 2 days or a rat burrows a hole in a nights time. But we humans take a 20 or 30 year house loan/mortgage, where we end up struggling a good part of our lives to pay it back.

Is this the life we really want to live? Can there be a better way for us? Is it possible for us to have a house to sleep in that is beautiful yet free from debt that ties us down? Can we thrive without a stressful 9 to 5+?

An Earth House that Jon Jandai Built

Jon talks about how he moved into the big city to struggle and how he realized it wasn’t his cup of tea. He recalled the days when in his village people would work for a few months in a year and get the rest of the year free to connect with each other and oneself.

One can definitely draw inspiration from Jandai’s life, how he came back to his roots and discovered a way to become completely self reliant. He changed his life around with minimal effort and has enough to keep him content. He also has managed to build not one but a few houses… he jokes about which one to sleep in at night 🙂

Jon now runs the Pun Pun center that teaches people how to become self reliant and live a wholesome life. The center holds courses that teach people the art of building earth homes, organic farming and how to save seeds for the future.

Please share, it really helps! :) <3
