The Miracle of Simplicity

One of the key principles for life is Simplicity, and the more we understand and practise it the easier our lives can be. It can be miraculous.

I was reminded of this in recent days when a friend spoke of a dilemma she was experiencing with a neighbour who was increasingly negative in his interactions with her. Not only was he judging her personal affairs without knowledge and making erroneous assumptions, but he was spreading false and hurtful and totally unjustified rumours about her within the community.

In the end she decided to look at the situation through the eyes of simplicity, to strip away the layers of confusion that clouded the matter in order to find the heart of the situation, which was her relationship with the man next door. Rather than continuing to ignore an increasingly painful problem she confronted it, and him, directly, talking through with him very clearly the core misunderstandings and the best way forward. He listened and heard and understood, and while he did not apologise a simple harmony based on clarity and truth has been established, for now at least.

It is so easy for simplicity to be overshadowed by complexity in all aspects of life and living. When in doubt I look at the simplicity of nature, and always get the answer I need.
