“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” … Leonardo da Vinci
Adults have developed such an awesome ability to complicate things. Have you ever watched a child playing? They don’t waste a lot of time of planning elaborate schemes … other than big, fun fantasy worlds … nor do they spend endless hours trying to foresee every possible eventuality to every single moment … they simply live.
If aforementioned child were to be transplanted instantaneously to an adult body they wouldn’t waste time on Googling every nuance of life unless it was of interest … of use … and downright fascinating. When did we lose this ability to dive into the moment and resurface refreshed … rejuvenated … and simultaneously possessing the knowledge that we need right here … and right now?
Long ago Capital “L” Life whispered in my ear: “The best way … the easiest way is to K.I.S.S.” … and no … It wasn’t referring to a Big-hug-and-a-kiss. Having fallen into complicated, adult habits it took awhile for me to figure out that what It was trying to tell me … in its own cryptic way … was to Keep It Simple Susanne! “Ah-h-h-h” said I: “Got it” … and to a certain degree I did get it.
These days I am walking through life hand-in-hand with Perky Polly and Ms Sunshine. … after all they don’t come any more kid-like or simple and clear in their viewpoints and interactions than those two. Miss Perky and Ms Sunshine remind me not to fall into the potential abyss of “other-people’s-stories” and to check in with my Heart and with Life on a regular basis. “So” saith I: … “this time I think I’ve really got it Life … or at least a good chunk of it. … Oh … and if I’m missing something my good and dear friend … could you please do your best to make sure that the next lesson is more easeful!??! Much gratitude and love from your “simple” and grateful friends.””
