To mirror francopoli, you don't crave poverty. Poverty is a nightmare. You crave simplicity. You said so yourself. The thing is though, it's probably not really even simplicity you crave, but modesty and humbleness. So live modestly and be humble. It takes effort to get started, but once you get the ball rolling it's easy to keep going.

It may very well be so. To admit, though: I don't understand what that might exactly mean, to live modestly and humbly. Could you elaborate, so as to set my vision right?
