“The art of living… is neither careless drifting on the one hand nor fearful clinging to the past on the other. It consists in being sensitive to each moment, in regarding it as utterly new and unique, in having the mind open and wholly receptive.”- Alan Watts

Living a Simple Life

“Let your mind wander in the pure and simple. Be one with the infinite. Let all things take their course.”- Chuang Tzu

In our every day life, we rush through tasks quickly without much thinking.  Despite all our planning and multitasking, there is not enough time in a day to finish our work.  We finish as much as we can and rush from one destination to another.  We run non-stop and our attention is divided among tasks.  And when we get to our final destination we realize what madness this all is. Living a simple life allows us to see things clearer. Being mindful may improve our concentration, regulate our emotions, and help manage our stress.  Keep in mind all great things are simple.
