Simple is Beautiful

Simple is beautiful. It cannot be fragmented into different parts as it is one composite whole without any layers to it. That is the beauty of nature, that is the beauty of music and that is the beauty of knowledge and power. They are so simple that it is hard to explain……..We cannot say which note of piano sounds better than the other, we cannot say, that droplet of water is better than this one or when we are out there enjoying the beauty of nature, it’s hard to figure out if the chirping of birds sounds better or the different colors of trees or the mountain behind it or the sky above it. Despite having their own particular uniqueness, they are all so well amalgamated with each other that they all look like one integral whole……….which cannot be broken into different parts and existence of one without the other is absolutely inconceivable…………….


When I listen to Mozart, Beethoven or pandit Ravishankar, I cannot marvel more at its beauty and power. I just submerge myself in the calmness and serenity that it provides. What Mother Teresa was doing on this earth was so simple that it couldn't have been explained. She was helping people!! but that was the power of it ........

Sometimes it makes me sad to see that in the modern world there is nothing simple, there is no harmony, it is an incongruous Whole where we could very easily do without the other……………..............!

What you wrote is poetical. Life is very easy, when we enjoy one second a time. J. Krishna Moorthy taught to LIVE IN THE ETERNAL PRESENT which is the meeting point of eternal past and eternal future.
