Simplifying life to ease tension

words & design by Brian Thompson.

“Be as simple as you can be; you will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become.”—Paramahansa Yogananda

We complicate our lives in a desperate effort to find prosperity, success and happiness, but we often only find the opposite—stress, anxiety, worry, jealousy, greed and fear.

We run ourselves ragged in a quest to win a race that can't be won.

But when a person's life is simplified—when Life is no longer believed to be a game of Monopoly or Risk—happiness has room to stretch and grow.

Tensions ease in the air of quiet simplicity. It's here where you realize what truly matters.

The natural state of peace, calm and happiness is already within you—here and now—it's not an achievement or possession that can somehow be attained.

Look within.
