Choosing Voluntary Simplicity is a good manifesto for how I've been living & wanted to live for some time now. Anything you make yourself is better than the fanciest junk you can buy. A smile is a better gift than money. Doing anything (making something, doing a chore) is better than watching anything. Fixing something or making do is better than replacing. Relaxing is better than being busy. The beauties of nature are better than anything man can make. The pleasures of our senses are the greatest pleasures we have. Not wanting physical things or status is the path to freedom. There's a ton of good self-helpy stuff on that site, but also some silly nonsense.
