In You’re Trying Too Hard, Joey Lott talks about a more complex simplicity.
I like that way of talking about it.
Joey Lott’s simplicity is a simple simplicity. And I find it beautiful and very helpful. It’s a direct pointing to the utter simplicity of reality.
For others, the simplicity is equally simple, and also more complex. It’s a richer simplicity.
It’s a simplicity that allows for practices, soul centers, development, voices, shadow, projections and more.
And all of that is happening within and as the simplicity. It’s the play of the simplicity.
When the simplicity is very clear and in the foreground for me, I too tend to favor a simple simplicity.
Right now, there is a draw to a slightly more complex simplicity, exploring all the things I am exploring here, and also noticing the simplicity it happens within and as. And seeing if I can find any of it. Can I find a shadow? Soul centers? Development? Projections? Or even a thought? A sensation? An image? Sound? Awareness? Emptiness? Can I find any of those as a real thing?
– joey lott, a simple simplicity – clear, ordinary
– can be more complex too, more richness, including practices, development etc. (within/as the simplicity, the play of the simplicity)
The simple simplicity is helpful since it’s as free of distractions as possible.
