Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication

…..choose to live simply so that others may simply live
The little things? The little moments?
They aren’t little

The Kingdom of Heaven is within you
Look within; thou art the Buddha
- Gautama Buddha
Atman [the essence of the individual] and Brahman [the ultimate reality] are one

Simplicity is the final achievement …
the crowning reward of art.

…….Toynbee ………wrote that the progress of a civilization is not accurately measured by it's conquest of land and people. Instead, the true measure of growth lies in a civilization’s ability to transfer increasing amounts of energy and attention from the material side of life to the non-material side – areas such as personal growth; family relationships; music, theater, and other others; meditation; community life; personal expression; and democracy.
……the revered Indian sage Ramana Maharshi said that silence speaks with “unceasing eloquence.”
