The Secret of Life
By Paul Hinsberger
About 40 years ago, this simple realization came to me: “The Secret to Life is...Simplicity!”
When we look at Life with the innocence of a Child, when we Live with Wonderment and Curiosity and with Love and
Joy in our Hearts, our life becomes something very different. Very different, indeed!
Our everyday world challenges our desire to live this Way. We live in a world that favors fiscal and career advancement,
consumerism, keeping up appearances and places us in competition with our parents, siblings, neighbors and friends,
creating rivalry and pettiness. There is great pressure from the Outside World to conform with social expectations, so
much so that the Inner World is ignored and its voice silenced. The Simplicity of Life is pushed way down on the to-do
list or it is blatantly denied, leading us further away from Freedom of Spirit.
When was the last time you asked your Soul; “What would
you like to do?” And then, having done so, when was the
last time you listened and acted as your Soul desired?
If you step back and look at the request of your Soul, what
it may desire could, perhaps, be far away from where you
are now in your Life. If so, don't worry about the “How to
get there?” Instead, look at where it will take you. Most
likely, it will take you somewhere that brings more
simplicity and hence freedom.
It may be a challenging road to get there and it may take
years to do so, however it is so very much worth it!
