This is my wish for you this new year 2017:
Comfort on difficult days,
smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds,
laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart,
hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see,
friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe,
confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself,
patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.

The past is an object of our study, of our meditation, but the way to study it or meditate on it is by remaining anchored in the present moment.

"We can find true refuge within our own hearts and minds—right here, right now, in the midst of our moment-to-moment lives. We find true refuge whenever we recognize the silent space of awareness behind all our busy doing and striving. We find refuge whenever our hearts open with tenderness and love. We find refuge whenever we connect with the innate clarity and intelligence of our true nature." - Tara Brach, True Refuge

Very thought provoking quote Evelyn!

So, to clarify if I am understanding it right...

If you abandon your fears, compulsions and materialistic dreams, then the simplicity one 'seeks' will just BE filled with love?

My husband and I are working on this everyday!

It's a hard thing to do!

One day at a time!

You can be creative only when there is abandonment--which means, really, there is no sense of compulsion, no fear of not being, of not gaining, of not arriving. Then there is great austerity, simplicity, and with it there is love.

Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.
