Awareness of Simplicity

God has always created and creates things simply, but are we aware of this? The light of our eyes might be one of the most valuable treasures we have as human beings.

Did you ever think about the relationship between your two eyes? They move together, see things together, cry together, sleep together, and go blind together...even though they never see each other... but they are connected in a deep silent way, in oneness...(as twin flames maybe)

Why are we not aware of these simple things God created for us, within us, to simplify our understanding? Perhaps it is because of impure minds, thoughts we create, fear, pain, anger, desires and the need to control and domineering.

How can we be aware of the simple things around us? Freeing our selves from material attachments, frustrations and pains, in order to open our eyes more and observe things around us. Seeing the beauty God created for us, His children, so that we may enjoy our journey on earth. All this beauty is part of the Divine creation and it is our duty to keep it pure and uncomplicated.

Simplicity means freedom from hardship, effort or confusion and reflects beauty, purity and clarity of sight.

Your eyes can not see each other, but they can see their reflection in another person's eyes, in the water of a lake, when looking at the mirror ... and at that time when your eyes can see each other, let them take a look within, so that you can see your inner beauty admiring, appreciating, respecting and being graceful to God for His Divine Creation.
