The most obvious in life seems to be the most difficult; the most simple seems to be the most difficult; the most simple seems to be the most complicated.
The reason why it happens so, is because the mind is not interested in the obvious.
It wants the challenge of the impossible; only with the challenge of the impossible can the mind fulfil its ego. With the obvious, there is no space for the ego to grow or even to exist.
The obvious is the grave of the ego. The simple we take for granted, because it is so simple. Only the far away, the distant, catches our eye, invites us for a journey.
Nobody bothers to enter into himself, and to see the most miraculous, the most mysterious, the most fundamental principle of life, the very source of life – it is so close, so obvious, so simple.
