“It is very simple to be happy, but it is very difficult to be simple.” ~Rabindranath Tagore
i love this quote.
the practice of renunciation is important in Buddhism and other traditions, not only as an act of sacrifice, but i’d say even more so as an act of freedom.
the more we add into our lives, the more we complicate our lives, the more we can feel trapped and bogged down. the freedom given in simplicity allows us to give more of our life and love fully to what is in front of us.
simplicity is a practice of freedom.
