Simplicity – The Essence of Life

Simple Living

Simple living is one of those traits that makes a person amicable and liked by all. It is said that, for a successful and peaceful life, one should adhere to the principle of ‘Simple living and high thinking.’ 

Where There Is Will There is a Way

It is not difficult to develop any quality in oneself. One only needs to have the inner desire to change. It is said that we can improve only by bringing about a change in and around us.

Simplicity is Beauty

In this world there is nothing more attractive and joyous than the simple little things in life. We keep running after pomp and show but what we forget in this rat race is that we miss out on vital things like peace of mind and the feeling of wholeness in life which can only be achieved by being simple at heart.

Simplicity Leads to Solutions

There is no problem in this world that cannot be solved. As nobody makes a lock without a key, there exists a solution to every problem. What bars us from finding the solution and implementing it is our own ego.

When we develop the quality of simplicity in ourselves, we automatically cut down our inflated ego and get humble enough to be on the right path to receive wisdom to think about the solution. Otherwise, our own ego keeps coming in our way to the solution of the predicament.

Simplicity is the Doorway to all Qualities

Simple living does not mean staying away from a luxurious life style. The basic idea behind simplicity is, having a simple thought process.

Being humble, not harming or cheating anybody, obedience to your elders, and not gossiping about anyone are all simple attributes of life that lead to other qualities that make a person appreciable in everyone’s eyes.

Purity in Simplicity

Simplicity seeds in purity in one’s heart. By being pure at heart, one refrains from committing misdeeds that arise due to desire and ignorance. Purity in and around oneself imparts wisdom to demarcate between right and wrong.

The pride blinding us vanishes and can no longer lead us to the incorrect path of wrong deeds and thoughts.

Simplicity and Satisfaction

A simple life-style accompanied with a simple thought process helps one cut-short on unnecessary desires and needs. It helps one stay on the right path of life and stick to the basic moral values. By staying simple one can avoid the chances of being blinded by the glitter of immoral ways and activities that ultimately lead to dissatisfaction and unrest in life.

It is not that one has to renounce in order to live simply or detach himself from worldly bonds but it is always to be remembered that simple living does not lower one’s social profile or status.

Instead, simple living makes life easier for us and enhances our ability to deal with unfavourable circumstances with an open mindset and ease.
