For those who struggle, it is a nightmare.  For those who have had their lives torn apart because a loved one committed suicide, the pain continues.  The questions continue.  Suicide of a loved one often destroys the lives of those left behind.

Please join me for a free online webinar as we discuss a mother's promise to help prevent suicide.

The Simplicity Of Life

Another favorite book of mine is "You Are The Answer" by Michael Tamura.

In this particular quote that I'm sharing, he talks about how we sometimes make life too difficult and mostly because we have learned to ignore the simple things and the simplistic part of life.  It is a survival mechanism, but as we wake up, so do we begin to see the simple things.

I often use the example for people that most will walk outside and never hear the birds, or see the simplest things around them.  When this happens, we miss out on so much in life.  As you begin to wake up and become more conscious, these things become a symphony for your life that you will rarely miss.

Anyway, here's the quote that I wanted to share today.

Most of us have learned to disregard the pure simplicity of life in our struggles to survive in an increasingly complex world.  It's funny that we so readily sacrifice the simple for the complicated, with the excuse that we don't have the time for it.  Yet its the simple that doesn't take much time. (Page 215, You Are The Answer by Michael Tamura).
