Most of us have compartmentalized our lives, making dockets of this or that theme, plugging it into the holes whether relevant or irrelevant, segregating it into the debates of philosophy, spirituality, consumerism, materialism or what not, and forgetting when we enjoyed its simplicity.

Simplicity, that is their in every passing moment.

The common makes for the most uncommon is a well reverberated realization now.

Because, the ‘common’ has been rendered as the most ‘uncommon’!

And we do this. We let this happen to us.

No one can say when it starts happening but it is happening in most of the lives.

It cannot be said when the ‘spirit of existentialism’ starts taking the backstage in our lives.

Probably, it starts happening when the ‘simplicity’ starts losing its appeal in our lives.

Probably, it starts happening when we start losing touch with the free flow of life, delving into the realms of compartmentalization, consciously or subconsciously.

Life is every development that it comes across.

Life is every positive and negative outcome that it witnesses.

Life is every relevant and irrelevant event that it goes through.

Life is every common and uncommon moment that it lives.

Life is in every moment. Life feels about it in every moment. Life is in every positive, negative, relevant, irrelevant, common and uncommon development. It flows from one moment to other, irrespective of how we see this moment from that moment. Every moment is the building block of life and it reflects back on it. It doesn’t segregate but we do.

We don’t appreciate the simplicity of going straight in life. Yes, seeing life in differing perspectives is necessary but those perspectives should be driven by us. Instead, we let the perspectives drive our lives.

We don’t appreciate the life when it efforts to learn from the moments that we think are hostile to us. We don’t appreciate life when it expects us to understand its unidirectional flow – a simple transition from this moment to the next, from this day to the next.

Life lives its every moment but we don’t. Life likes us to go simple but we don’t. Life intends to weave further on this ‘simplicity’ fabric but we don’t.

Simplicity, that makes every day a new day.

Simplicity, that makes you a ‘new you’ every other day.
