There are deep levels of awareness and understanding that only blossom with continual contemplation. Even the simplest, most basic things hold great depths of meaning that we often miss because we gloss over them, thinking the concept is too simple to hold great meaning.
I often feel a complete understanding of a concept that resonates with me and it seems at first that I know everything I need to know about that concept, but time after time, I realize there is a greater, more profound depth of meaning to that simple thing … when it suddenly lights up and gives that emotional AHA moment, “oh yeah, I knew that instinctively, but NOW I really KNOW what it means!”
I LOVE when that happens! But, if we do not believe there is value in simplicity, we continue to search only for deeper meaning in more complex things and therefore miss all the really valuable lessons of simplicity.
May we see the beauty and purpose of all things, great and small ♥
