The Practise of Simplicity
From the Words of – Lao Tzu …
“I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.”
I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions but I have learnt to listen to that intuitive push within.
This year I continue my journey in the practise of living life “Simply,” still with baby steps, but I feel a greater confidence and trust in listening to my internal cues.
It is a journey that is taken, in small increments, slowly but surely. Along the way, it enables self-nourishment, through the many layers of the being, moving with the flow life, bringing in greater clarity and purpose, allowing windows of genuine joy and happiness.
Now this is a lifelong practise and I don’t always get it right! As I share with my clients, no matter how you define your unique journey… change is about courage, conviction and ongoing practise.
The Act of Simplifying … allows you to define your own life, goals and values and not be enticed into our human impulse to over complicate, to chase the collective demands, the need to keep up with whatever is trending … which more often leads to Mind Body overwhelm, anxiety and stress related disease… the act of “Simplifying” is key to quality of LIFE and wellbeing.
Focus and simplicity…
According to Steve Jobs … “Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end, because once you get there, you can move mountains.”
