Without the need to look up, I can see the beauty of the sky, dark clouds that move over the tips of pine leaves. From a reflection, the silhouette of pine leaves look so simple under the splendor of the sky. Even so, both of them also illustrate the majesty of the universe and life. Really, I was fascinated to see that.
I immediately thought of people, or friends, or anyone who was always grateful and enjoyed life in simplicity. We all know that in the midst of modern and sophisticated civilization today, living in simplicity with full sincerity without being tempted by a various worldly sheen that’s so tempting is really not easy, both those who have or who don’t. They are happy because they enjoy what they have, not because they feel compelled to accept the situation. I am sure, in this community, there are many friends who have that such magnanimity.
You and those who enjoy simplicity with joy are happy, peaceful people who live their lives as they are, without complaining, without burdening the mind with anxiety over what they don’t have. They enjoy all tastes; sweet, bitter, salty, sour and tasteless, as is, in the same way, as is reasonable, appropriately. Really, I admire them, rich souls, who feel well off in simplicity.
Do you know anyone with such a rich soul? Or even yourself?
