Our life is frittered away by detail…Simplify, simplify.

  1. “Keep it simple” has become my motto, Eddie. When my life gets complicated and full of ‘stuff’, I lose myself. How I do love the simple things of life, the divine in all things, the beauty, the peace, the love. And I love the simple yet profound messages that I find here. Thank you, dear Eddie.

  2. I never get this kind of thing. How does one “fritter” away his or her life? Is there a blueprint we should be following? If there is, who made it up and why should we follow it? Doesn’t everything we do get us to the next place? Can “frittering” be fun? What is “frittering?” I’m not trying to be difficult, I just don’t understand how any of this can mean anything. You LIVE your life your own way and there are no rules. You do what you want to do, or have to do. Some people turn details into wonderful things while others sit quietly and dream of other places. What’s the difference? See, that’s what I don’t understand. Why is one thing better than anything else? And most importantly WHO DECIDES? Simplify, means different things to different people, right? So does frittering, I guess. I think we think about life, and how we live it, way too much. Why can’t we just LIVE? Why are there so many questions and rules? Don’t we fritter our time away thinking about all of that stuff? That would simplify a lot, if we gave up wondering about all of that, when there is no possible way to actually KNOW anything, right? I don’t know when, or if, I’m frittering but I’m happy just doing what I do, whatever that is, and I don’t have labels or words for how I live. I just don’t get this. Seriously. What is it supposed to mean?

    • Look at the title. It says ‘simplify’. Your last question is, “what is it suppose to mean?”.
      Simplify your life. Thank you very much for all of your kind thoughtfulness.

    • Human beings have a tendency to examine everything they see, touch, taste, and so on. Good in a way and yet there is a limit to what we should do or think about and allowing ourselves time for ‘peace of mind’. It is simply called the ‘Law of Limitation’. Thank you very much for your thoughtful comments
