Life can be terribly hard and complicated. There are stealthy demands on who we should be and what we should be doing. The push always seems to be more, to do more, to earn more, more, more, more.

But more can leave us with burdens we were never meant to carry. Perhaps a life lived sencillo-
simple, easy, straightforward, easygoing, simple-hearted, quiet- would leave us happier and lighter.
This doesn't mean there won't be murky waters. It means we calmly arise through the waters like the lotus. It doesn't mean life won't get crazy or hectic. It means we move from a place of centeredness and peace. Like it states in Isaiah (26:3) "You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You."
It is a subtle shift away from the pressure of the more and towards the simple gratitude and enjoyment of what is. A focus on the good, a focus on the pleasures of everyday life, a focus on being in the moment, and making life pleasurable for ourselves and those around us.
