Simplicity

Excerpts from Sri Chinmoy’s Books – The Divine Hero

To have simplicity is to run towards God without darkness, worries or impurity. In the spiritual life the higher we go, the deeper we go, the farther we go, the more we will see that Reality is only the song of simplicity and nothing else. God is simple, but we think of Him as complex. The entire cosmic Game is extremely simple, but we look at it from a different angle, in an obscure way.

For us everything is complex because we always use the mind. We do not want to walk a straight line. If a path is simple and straight, we feel that it has no value. Just because we value complexity, we do not take the sunlit path – the simple, straight path. Right from the beginning of our lives we become accustomed to doing things in a very complicated way, so simplicity is most difficult for us.

Be simple, be sincere,
Be pure and be humble.
Go back,
Go back once more
To the basics of your inner-life.

~Sri Chinmoy
