22-129 Simplicity

Today’s Mandala
Simplicity

“I have just three things to teach:
simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.”

— Lao Tzu

“Simplicity in character,
in manners, in style;
in all things
the supreme excellence is simplicity.”

— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Truth is ever to be found in simplicity,
and not in the multiplicity
and confusion of things.”

— Isaac Newton

Today’s MotD reminds us to KISS: keep it simple, sweetheart. When in doubt, go the simplest route. Too often we complicate things, usually to distraction. It’s worth the extra moments to contemplate how best we can do what we need to do, in the simplest way.

Simplicity can apply to every area of lives, internally and externally. Do we really need all the stuff we have? More stuff means more energy needed to maintain our stuff. And what about our inner stuff? Do we really need all the outdated beliefs, conditioning, and rules that keep us from being true to our Authentic Selves?

Today’s mantra: Where can I simplify today?

For fun, here’s comedian George Carlin’s rant on ”Stuff”:
