A Return to Simplicity


Sometimes the best solution is the simple one. Yet, it seems that as our technology becomes more and more advanced, the more we have accepted (and believed) that only complex solutions are what we need.

My son’s tablet was being recharged. He then began to play not with his Lego set, but one super bouncy green ball. There was so much pleasure in his face as the threw it to me and I in return threw it back to him. Who knew that such an inexpensive toy would bring him so much joy? Sounds funny to even type these words, yet, I have become so accustomed to technology that I forget how much fun “no-tech” games can be.

Then I look at my work where I show patients simple exercises to fix their physical woes. Some of them return to me after their initial consultation in disbelief that what I’ve taught them has been so effective in such a short period of time. It does not always have to be complicated, I tell them.

In noticing that my 2 month old piercing was becoming more red, I began to apply salt water compresses to it, in addition to my normal cleaning routine. Within just one application, the redness began to wane and the area was less sensitive to the touch. Simple. Effective. Without any side effects.

Where does this apply to being free? The most simple and effective way to work through my emotions has been found through simply sitting with them and allowing them to move through me. It just takes a little bit of courage to know that you can get to the other side. The more you practice, the better you get. It really is that easy. The journey begins within.
