Is living a simply life such a complex thing?

It seems to me the process of simplifying life and sustaining it can be quiet hard to achieve at times.

Simplicity and complexity are part of the same thing. Something can only be complex if you deem it to be. Change your perception on a simple life and then you’ve solved the problem. Cheers!

Life is a big mystery and I think it was designed to be like this. If we knew actually what would happen after death, our life wouldn’t be like it is now.

Imagine for instance, that after death we have a perfect world of peace and happiness… If we all were certain about it, nobody would want to live: people would just suicide!

Sometimes I think we are living in something like in the Matrix movie… but a game. We are stuck here and the universe is just a huge picture to make us wonder even more about our existence.

I think we have an infinite life somewhere perfect. Then we choose to enter this world to experience a life and feelings that don’t exist in our infinite reality, such as fear, anger, sadness, sexual desire… This experience should be to grow our souls and also to kill the boredom of eternity.

I believe Christ created this environment. That’s why Christ is God and when we ask him any help, He will give us. Like a bonus in the game we entered… the creator will always be there to guide us into a happy ending.

As this world is so big and full of requests, we can also ask help to the good souls that already finished the game. They have a big connection with it and authorization of God to give us a hand when things are not going the way we want here.

I think some people played the game many times already and are big winners… So they choose for huge challenges! Such as getting born with the dream of being a doctor, but being very poor and having no money for education.

I think sometimes also that some people are just part of the game… they are not real… don’t have soul. It feels like some people are so empty or so basic minded.

Society has made life complex, it had told you that you need this and you need that.

But, human life is as simple as any other life.

Think of what requirements there are of a planet in order to sustain life, that is how simple life is. It is even so simple that, everything you need is all around you, otherwise there wouldn’t be any other life.

First ‘live’ life, gradually you will forget the concept of simplicity or complexity.

Thanks for all the feedback
@livelifeloving, Yes i know this isn’t the case all over the world but in my society it applies, Maybe the essentials have of life have become to readily available to us that we take them for granted and start holding them with less value. therefor Making us consume more and filling our life’s with unnecessary junk and going to outrageous lengths to get our kicks.

@meghashyam, I like that thought, reminds me of “living in the present” When your fulling immersed in the moment everything else fades away and you are left with contentment.
