The Flow of Simplicity

Spirituality comes down to such a simple process--experience the things you value the most, ask inside for more and listen to the response of the true self that will guide your next step. Existence was designed to liberate us and our task is to accept such an incredible gift with humility and joy.” -Deepak Chopra

While listening to another great meditation by Deepak Chopra, I slipped into a deep state of calmness and started daydreaming about how my life would be if I had more of the things I value most. One word to describe this feeling is, freedom! When I was about eight-years-old, I learned to ride a bike. The bike belonged to a friend and I learned how to ride it in seconds. After a few tries, I could steady myself enough to have a smooth ride, I pedaled as fast as I could--the wind caressing my face and hair. It was the most freeing feeling ever! It was joyful nirvana!

Decades later, during this meditation session I was able to realize that my first bike ride experience was a spiritual moment! I was humbled and joyous and wrapped up in the simplicity of enjoying the ride, even if it wasn’t my bike. The most beautiful part of this memory is that when I’ve had other moments in life when I’ve longed for a sense of freedom and simplicity, I always remember my first bike ride and how great it made me feel. It’s time to return to the simplicity of life--to enjoy the liberating goodness that flows and frees me to be humbled and joyous with the things I value the most.

In hope, I am fearless.
