“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.”

– Thoreau

Everything is complex, until you recognize simplicity. While our mind is filled with complexities and tends to complicate most everything, Who we truly are is like a rose, free in its simplicity.A rose stays simple. With no ‘why’ attached to it, it blooms because it blooms, has no thought of itself, or any desire to be seen.

Imagine your mind as free and simple as the rose:

* Released from the persistent ‘why’, it no longer ‘needs’ to know.
Who you are knows without needing to know.

* Freed from the judge that races to label, compare and control.
Who you are stays open to perceive ‘what is’, present in the now.

When you let go of the complicated mind that thrives on its opinions and stories, you’ll feel restlessness and anxiety dissipate.  This quiet simplicity allows open Acceptance of life; inner peace resides here.

“The greatest wisdom is in simplicity; love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude and forgiveness. It’s not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It’s encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way.”  ~       Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder

Taste your own Simplicity by gathering roses and placing them in a vase. First, notice the state of your body and energy. And then sit down next to your roses for 5 minutes. Recognize how your state shifts. Most likely you’ll notice yourself both relaxing and expanding.

A simple rose is a de-charger. It has the capacity to lift dense energies you might have accumulated in your day and raise your vibration. Put your thumb in the center of the rose for de-charging.

Embrace the beauty of the Rose as it is!

Embrace life as it is!

Embrace yourself as you are!

A rose has the most exquisite fragrance, just as you do. A rose has a vibrant energy field, just as you to. As you simplify your mind and your life, you’ll naturally connect with the special fragrance and light that is you. You’ll begin to let down and rest into greater ease.
