Simplicity

May 15, 2018

The principle of renunciation

is not to encourage a state of lack,

but to establish as complete

a state of simplicity as possible.

In that simplicity

you can more clearly see

those patterns of wanting,

not wanting, fearing, hoping,

as they take shape.

~Ajahn Amaro
(1956 to pres., Abbot of the Amaravati

Buddhist Monastery, England)
