Simplicity in Action

We long for the simplicity of our youth.
No bills, endless days of play.
But all of our lives happen in relationship...
relationship to others, to things.
My car, my wife or husband, my child.
Our relationships bring us pleasure and pain.
It is not the other that cause pleasure or pain.
Really it is our desires we long to fulfill with that person or thing that brings about the pain or joy.
We are the creator of our experience.
We each have the potential to choose our desires and let them go.
The seed of desire is even deeper still.
Have you considered the seeds lately? Why do I long for my beloved?
Why am I seeking a better job? A bigger home? Another trip?
Is it then a wise desire? One that leads me to greater expression or one that fulfills a longing for safety, for painless living?
Always choose growth, connection and your truth.
