“Simplicity is to experience reality, not in relation to ourselves but in its
holy independence. Simplicity is to see, judge and act from the point
where we are resting within ourselves. How much then does not fall
away! And how much of the rest does not fall into place?
Resting in the centre of our being we meet a world where everything, in
the same way, is resting in it self. Thus the tree is a mystery, the cloud
a revelation, the human being a cosmos whose richness we perceive in
glimpses. For the simple person, life is simple but it opens up a book
in which we never reach the first syllable”.
To understand – through stillness
To act – from stillness
To win – in stillness"
--Dag Hammarskjöld, from “Markings”.
