Liz CA Posted November 13, 2011 Share Posted November 13, 2011 Do you occasionally find yourself fascinated by a group of people who live such a life of simplicity and peace in the midst of our society where we run, strive and compete every waking moment - or so it seems? This past week, I looked a little deeper into Amish & Mennonite customs and am wondering now if I could live like that. Would it be a relief to not have the constant onslaught of news and drama? Could I truly get to a point of "Gelassenheit" which evidently means for them a "letting go and let God" attitude. I think I envy them their peace, their sense of community and their orderly lives...
