Simplicity means sensible naturalness of the way of life and behavior, as well as modesty and lack of arrogance and self-importance. Simplicity is a pre-requisite of Love. It is also an indispensable tool of spiritual warriors, which God wants us to be.
The best way to develop simplicity is to keep close to nature and to learn how to attune to its harmony. Here, in the solitude of forests, fields and lakes, without make-up on the face, earrings, fancy synthetic clothes or even with no clothes at all — we can love the beauty of the Creation and the Creator, accepting help from God in the optimal way, expanding with the consciousness in the beauty of the Creation and in the Holy Spirit.
Simplicity is also beautiful in expressing our love for other people: in a smile, friendliness, tenderness and openness with friends.
But it is important to know the limits. For instance, walking naked among those who do not understand you and propagating your understanding of “simplicity” in this way — this is tactlessness; this cannot be called a harmonious and spiritual action.
The same principle can be applied to sexual relations: the “simplicity” that results in sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies, as well as that, which is connected with violence and selfishness — is not what God wants from us.
“Spontaneity” in expressing and realizing all of the whims, needs and desires, which is encouraged in some modern pseudo-spiritual sects and other organizations, also does not have anything to do with the true Simplicity.
Only the Simplicity of intelligent people who belong to the sattva guna and of those who have reached even higher spiritual heights is the true Simplicity.
People of the tamas guna understand simplicity as either sugariness or violence, rudeness, scuffle, and lying drunk in the mud.
The true Simplicity is one of the elements of the “training for God”. It is not for those who are far from Him.
