The Bare Necessities

I was watching Jungle Book with my daughter today and some of the words of the song "The Bare Necessities" struck me as very interesting.

Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature's recipes
That brings the bare necessities of life

We all have worries and strife but we should look for the bare necessities the simple bare necessities of life.

And don't spend your time lookin' around
For something you want that can't be found
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinkin' about it
I'll tell you something true

The bare necessities of life will come to you

This part of the song is very interesting - we spend a lot of time looking around for something that can't be found, but do we stop when we realise that we can go on with life without it. Very rarely we do - but the song goes on to say that if we go on not thinking about it we wont really miss it and the bare necessities of life will come to you. It is the bare necessities of life that are important.
