Materialism and Naturalism are two extremes and today’s life style usually get carried away in Materialism. Balancing Materialism and Naturalism is of my great interest.
Materialism usually makes one’s life mechanized. Naturalism makes ones life tribal. Limiting materialistic aspirations and being selective in materialism according to naturalism is the means of balancing both.
For example, Camera is a materialistic aspiration. But using it for a Forest trip is the concept of balancing materialism and naturalism.
Its good to avoid the schedules which makes one unnecessarily mechanized and maintain some free time everyday to sit back and relax. Mind is at peace only when one is able to be relaxed for about an hour at least when there is no work and being still.
