The essence of Zen is in the beauty of simple things.

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn. A cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind is not clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life. — a Chinese poem

We purify the mind of the force of craving through the power of simplifying, knowing what we need in order to be happy.

Our deepest happiness is not born from accumulating new experiences. It is born from letting go of what is unnecessary, and knowing ourselves to be always at home.

Simplicity reveals the nature of the mind behind the veil of restless thought.

“Our life is frittered away by detail… Simplify, simplify.” — Henry David Thoreau

Inner freedom allows us to savor the lucid simplicity of the present moment, free from the past and emancipated from the future.

Simplifying my life to extract its quintessence is the most rewarding of all the pursuits I have undertaken.
