Keep life simple. How many of you can do it?
It sounds or look easy to be done, but how many of you can really do it? To be able to keep life simple mean you should feel peace and ease.
However, everybody are talking about stress and fear. Everybody are worried about surviving and their future. So where is the peace and ease?
Living in the Now
In order to keep life simple, we have to learn to live in the here and now. What are the benefits of to live in the now?
When you are to live in the now, you have no fear, worries and stress. Because all these fear, worries and stress are come from thinking too much about the future which is yet to know.
The mind is always busy thinking. It either thinking about past or future or making up it owns stories.
Our mind has made our life complicated, no more simple. So how to keep life simple when you have a busy mind?
Your life is being created by your mind whether you are conscious or unconscious. Throughout our life experience, we have created a lot of belief and condition through our mind.
And these beliefs and conditions have created our current life. We are therefore responsible for our current life situation because we are the one who has created it.
If the current life situation you don’t like it, you have to learn from the mistake you have made, accept it, and tell yourself you will not make the same mistake again and move on with your life.
However, most of the people reaction when facing their current life situation which they don’t like it, they will either complain or blaming others. They didn’t learn from their mistake.
Therefore, they always face the same unhappy life situation and got stuck there until the day they learn and realize that they are the one who have created it through their mind and make an effort to stop it and change.
How to Control our Mind
When we are able to keep life simple, there is no busy mind. We live in the NOW. We are mindful and aware of ourselves and surrounding. We give no judgment of things we hear, see and feel. We just simply listen, watch and feel.
When there is thought arise, we just simply watch it with no judgment. When there is no judgment to it, there will be no reaction to it. We become in control of our mind, instead of being control by our mind.
How to do it?
Stop identify ourselves as the mind. Because if you think you are the mind, you will think the thought is you.
The mind is just a memory storage of the thought you have created in the past and for your future. Therefore, the thought is just a memory.
Think your MIND as a computer and your THOUGHT is the memory store in your computer.
So the MIND actually is just a tool like a computer. It’s helpful and useful as a tool. YOU are not the tool. YOU are using the tool to do work for you. Therefore, you should have the control of your tool.
However, what is happening now to majority of humanity?
They become the tool because they thought that they are the tool. The tool take control of YOU. You are no more the true real soulful YOU who is hiding behind a mask now. Therefore, you have no more in control of your own life because your life is being control by your tool.
Empty Your Cup
We got to take back our own power and in control of our own life. We are not the computer. We should be the one who are using the computer, instead of the other way round.
Our education never really teach us who we really are. We become a computer and live our life as a programmed computer.
Do you call this life? Everyday struggle to survive because we are being run by our mind, our tool?
Life is beautiful if we know how to take back our power and take charge of our own life.
We have to re-learn again who we truly are. Remember, we are not our mind.
In order to re-learn, we got to empty our cup first because now our cup is full of our programmed memory. We can’t fill up any more water when the cup is full already.
How To Start a Learning
We have to be determined to let go of what we have learned in the past, those old programs, that doesn’t serve us well, before we can start to re-learn again and become a child, a student.
We can start by learning more information by reading trusted articles or books on this topic.
One thing good about internet is nowadays you can find lot of information easily.
However, you must be careful too as majority of the stuffs in internet are actually bad influence. So you must be able to identify what information serve you good.

Live Simple Life
What does simple life mean? It’s not what people said it’s a boring life.
Simple life is peace, beautiful and meaningful. Simple life is not run by the ego mind. You are living your life with your truthful self, the origin of you, not the one hide behind a mask. You know what is the meaning of life.
Life start to get complicated when we think too much, allowing the mind to take charge of our life. Therefore, you are feeling lost, never be able to find a permanent true happiness no matter how much you have achieved.
Live life from the heart instead from the mind.
Have faith and trust the unknown with no fear as the universe will guide and lead you along your awakening journey. You are never alone.
