Simple things come along very slowly. In other words be slow to get simple things.



Simple things are easy. If you choose the easiest way, it should be the simplest solution you can utilize at the moment.



The world is getting more and more complicated, but when you look at a technology such as computers, they are the smartest organizing tools. They can store innumerable data, and yet they are very small and compact. So as history rolls out and collective human knowledge increases, we can either make a simple choice, or unprecedentedly complex choice.



You do not have to, and should not fuss to live a simple life. Instead, cut off most of your actions and unnecessary things. Slow down so that you can naturally cut down on everything that stresses you out.

68: Why You Should Believe in God



68-1



Time passes when you do nothing. Time passes when you do everything.

















68-2



No scripture, no gathering, no spreading. God is you.











68-3



God deals with everything.













68-4



Loss is fear.











68-5



God is all when there is no religion.

68-8

If you already know something, you don’t have to “believe” in it. You don’t believe in water because you know there is water. When you believe in God, you either consciously or subconsciously know that fairly many people do not believe in God. By “believing” in God, you accept the fact that you tend to forget to believe in God. As a human, you do not have to know God, you have only to believe in God.

All is in those words. All is in a book. All is in a computer. All is in my memory. All is in my imagination. Look at that lady at the corner. She is lucky because she is happy. Look at that guy stooping down for something. He is lucky because he is unhappy. Look at this stone. It is lucky because it does not feel happiness. I agree with you but I am your enemy. Nothing is in those words. Nothing is in a book. Nothing is in a computer. Nothing is in my memory. Nothing is in my imagination. Look at that lady at the corner. She is happy because she is lucky. Look at that guy stooping down for something. He is unhappy because he is lucky. Look at this stone. Hopelessly it cannot feel anything. I am your enemy but I agree with you.
