Simplicity isn’t a result, an outcome of effort or aspiration. You can’t cultivate it by de-cluttering or embracing the ‘zen’ aesthetic.
Like wild wideawakeness simplicity is a reflection of original innocence – uncomplicated, unadorned, naked.
It flowers naturally when there’s no longer anyone who needs to impress their apparent world with aggrandizement of body or belongings – including the intellect and the movie of personal experience.
Simplicity surfaces when thinking knows its place.
