{December 7, 2006}   Simple Wisdom

Our task is to strike a balance,
to find a middle way,
to learn not to overstretch ourselves with extraneous activities and preoccupations,
but to simplify our lives more and more.
The key to finding a happy balance in modern lives is simplicity.

Personally, I wouldn’t take that advice too literally, but I can see it’s application in a world where we’re inundated with “what to do”, “what to buy”, and even “how to be”, advice.

You know that warm feeling you get when you take yourself back to your childhood and remember how easily pleased you were? That for sure, is to do with the simplicity inherent in being young. The trick is, how to re-incorporate that into our “mature” lives.
