“Manifest plainness,
Embrace simplicity,
Reduce selfishness,
Have few desires.”
― Lao Tzu

I struggle to make my point. Undoubtedly, I make things too complex.

Perhaps this is why I’m attracted to Charles Bukowski.

But it goes beyond words.

The thing is, we’re swimming in an ocean of complexity, and we think, stupidly, we’re better off.


I can say from 50 years of living that having less (of everything) is more liberating than any other regime I’ve experienced.

If we must waste our life looking for an answer, then so be it. Personally, it’s easy — but bloody hard; namely, let simplicity be your north star.

And (then) see where that takes you.
