The word Simplicitude came to me one day
as I was trying to put a word to what
I was desperately seeking in my life.
My quest for peace was elusive.
As the word emerged, I realized that life is not about
achieving resolution or a final peace, as much as learning
to be comfortable in uncertainty, embracing
the dance between the opposing forces of our lives
finding our balance, our courage, and our way to navigate
through the conflict, the chaos, and the complicated.
It's about going in... engaging in the struggle...
being present...discovering the meaning...
and seeking and seeing new possibilities.
Our life journey may often feel more like a childhood
game of teeter-totter, than a level, navigable path, yet I
believe as we seek and savor simplicitude, a natural
balance occurs, an understanding and honoring of what
is, balanced by the hope of what can be.
