The simpler a person is, the richer he is (epiphany)
Beautiful morning light, accompany you to read.
what is the most precious thing for a person?
I have seen an answer:
the most precious thing about people is the time that is not occupied and the space that is not occupied.
and this free time and space are actually used to place themselves, their own body and mind.
the simpler the mind, the more precious and rich life will be.
Life is simple
We live in modern times. Everyone has dozens or hundreds of apps in their mobile phones, socializing, listening to music and watching videos, entertaining games, and even ordering takeout. Each item needs several software to accompany each other, as if without one, hundreds of millions of choices are lost.
I don't know how difficult it is because we are always faced with so many choices such as mobile software.
just like, more is less, less is more.
the extreme simplicity is the great wisdom and beauty of life.
in 1664, Michelangelo's sculpture David shocked the whole of Europe after it was exhibited in Italy.
he was asked: how did you carve David?
Michelangelo answer: I chiseled off the extra stones, leaving only the useful ones, and David was born.
then Michelangelo said another famous saying: beauty is the process of purifying excess.
coincidentally, sculptor Rodin was once faced with such a question: what is art?
he answered without hesitation: subtract the extra part.
this is true of art, especially life.
in our lives, in fact, more than 90% of the things are self-depleted.
"self-depletion" is a theory that psychologist Baumeister shocked the academic circle, that is to say:
our lives, whether it is the extra software in our mobile phones or the extra objects in our rooms, or the useless social interaction in our daily life, are actually wasting our mental energy and energy.
the space of one's soul is limited. Only when life is simple enough, can the mind have an open space, and this space can hold the more important things in life.
desire is simple and rich
there is a short story about a fisherman fishing by the river, but when he catches a fish, he measures it with a ruler. As long as the fish is bigger than the ruler, he throws them back into the river.
people are confused and others hope to catch big fish. Why do you throw all the big fish back into the river?
he replied easily:
empire waist wedding guest dress provides women stylish and comfy outfits and gowns. Our magnificent garments will hugely boost your confidence.
Don't let endless desires seize your heart. "enough is good" is an excellent simple attitude towards life.
Thoreau once said: the more you let go, the richer you will be.
the more a person wants, the more he wants to show off, the less he is.
A man who is really rich at heart never shows off everything he has. He won't tell others what cars he has driven, where he has been, how many clothes he has, and what jewelry he has bought, because he doesn't care so much about what he has outside.
the simpler a person's desire for material things is, the richer and richer his heart is.
Happiness with a simple mind
Happiness is the ultimate pursuit that we want to live in this world.
but happiness comes not from how many external things we have, but from our inner hearts.
Tolstoy once said:
in fact, it was only when we were drifting away from each and every one of us that we suddenly realized that no matter how much we got along the way, it was never as good as spiritual and spiritual abundance.
as the saying goes, the world is its own and has never been directly related to others.
after many collisions and twists and turns in life, the river of our life will eventually come to an open valley and converge into a vast lake.
but life is also a process of constantly discarding and gaining, throwing away the useless shackles of life, but getting real wealth in the heart.
the yearning of the heart is at ease. The simpler the heart, the more you can enjoy the best taste of the world.
some people ask: why can others make their lives so simple?
that's because you only focus on other people's lives and forget how to take care of your own.
in your envy of others, you put a curtain on your life so that you can't see what your life is like.
discard the fetters of material desires and meaningless social interaction, and let the heart return to simplicity and purity. When the heart is rich and secure, life will be leisurely and life can move forward light.
in fact, our life has always been a process from simple to complex, and then from complex to simple.
simplicity is our ultimate choice and destination, and it is where our lives are rich and happy.
May we all understand and really enjoy this simple happiness in time.
