More, Is Less (May 18, 2016

It's the simplest
And yet
Most profound thing
One can do.

As we walk
Upon this journey
Of true
And lasting healing.

In realizing
The most elegant solution
Is the simplest one.

For some people
A paradoxical answer
That confuses
Them.

Conflicting
With their inner
Value system
And learnt ideology:

"More
Is better".

And yet
The opposite
Is true.

Give
Any young child
The choice
Between
A cardboard box
And an expensive toy.

They will chose
The box
Over the toy.

Playing for hours
With the box.

While
The ignored toy
Sits
And collects dust.

A lesson
We need
To remember.

It's the journey
Itself.

And not
One's lavish display
Of wealth
That matters.

Author's note: This poem grew out, of the therapy session of May 18, 2016, which I talked about how we approach life, will influence our pace of healing and world outlook. In that, more, isn't better, rather, it's harmful, to our spiritual and healing needs
