Table of Contents
Exercise As An Essential Component Of The Daily Routine
Lights experience with exercising during the C-19 pandemic and developing a minimalist & yet very effective workout routine that doesn’t involve weights.
The importance of working out or performing some type of physical exercise for the body and mind.
The idea of living and pursuing a minimalist lifestyle while actively experiencing an expansion of consciousness.
The focus is not so much on the “getting rid of most of your things” part, but on finding true contentment and peace while living the minimalist lifestyle.
When you go from a state of comfort to one of discomfort but your internal consciousness state remains unchanged, that’s when one has mastered the art of Spiritual Minimalism.
The Life Of A “Modern-Day Hunter-Gatherer”
Light’s approach to life resembles that of the ancient hunter gatherers.
He doesn’t stay for too long in one place, carries with him only the things that are relevant for him to have during that period, and sheds all the things which are no longer useful in that time and place.
He has been essentially living for the past 4 years off a backpack + objects he borrows or rents for a short while.
Inner Guidance & How To Reconnect With Our Purpose In Life
The mechanisms by which one becomes capable of listening to the faint voice of the Inner Guidance and the tools that allow one to dial up the volume of that voice.
How to make Inner-work fit our busy daily routines.

Light eloquently breaks down the impact that meditation and doing the inner work can have on our communities and the world at large.
