ऋतश्री, the True Beauty – Simplicity

The Mother once said: “Spirituality is supreme simplicity. ” (CWM, 14:151)

And yet we keep on complicating it all. Why? Because we lack true spontaneity, true sincerity. And because we allow the extremely limited capacity of this instrument called mind which is ever-busy dividing, classifying, organising, compartmentalising and judging to rob us of the simplicity and spontaneity. But it is not the crude spontaneity of the lowest impulse or the empty simplicity of the rudimentary undeveloped mind which we need to go back to. It is the divine spontaneity which is a sincere expression of the truth and the divine simplicity which contains everything in it that is the goal of an aspirant on the sunlit path. Because in such simplicity is found the supreme harmony – within and without.
