|Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by mrphysics(m): 1:48pm On Oct 07, 2017|
This is my first post on this section, the aim is to help people live a happy life.
How hard do life seem to be? Do you aim to add more value to your life? Statistics have revealed that very many people are not happy with their lives and how things are going with them. A lot have been depressed while alot will be depressed. They wish they could do more, add more, be more, and get more in this life. What we see today are people who are neatly dressed with loads of problem and challenges. People who are being harassed by tons of demanding, unspecific, irrelevant, and time wasting activity. In the light of these, how do you make yourself happy, how do you free yourself from this cluster that have placed you in a web you find hard to escape from.
The secret to a happy life is simplicity. Life is easy if you make things simple. When you surround yourself with excesses, you lose control of everything, they weigh you down. You see yourself in a dilemma where you don't know where to start from. Life is made to weigh you down. The arrangement is made in such away that you keep going down till you hit the rock. Do you know those that win? They are those who don't care. People who are not bothered with lots of things that add nothing to their life. Life is simple if you get rid of those clusters of excesses.

Simplicity of things makes you focus. It gives you an added eyes to see how things should move. A simplified life is an automatic life. When you decide to live a simple life, you examine yourself and see those things that make your life stressful. You are always busy, busy yet you are achieving nothing. You can't point what you did with your time, yet you were occupied. A simplified life take yours mind out of unnecessary things that take much of your time. Ever looked at your browsing tab and see that you have like 10 to 15 tabs open? Take a closer look at those topics you kept, there are things you can discard and get anything you want. You didn't even open them again after you switched to another tab, yet they increased from 1 to 10. They are clusters of unnecessary things that complicates your life. Start removing those things, search within you and you will see a lot of people that are not adding anything to your life; weed them out. Life is simple, you just have to keep reducing excesses.
I accept the fact that we are living in a complex world, a sophisticated society. Everything seems to be connected to make your life complex. We now have complex weapons, phones, cars, and society. The very simply things of the past have been replaced by complex things. Simplified methods have been replaced by chains of methods to achieve simple things. Equations keeps getting longer and harder. The former almighty formula have been replaced by the long schrondinger equation. What issues are you contending with now? List those wasteful, useless, dangerous, negligible issues that are competing with you. They are things that seems to cluster your life and make you look like everything is hard. Remove them. Get rid of them. Life Happy

Wow....I'm completely blown away

That's a super write up Physics...Trust me, don't discount on your abilities because you feel you don't wanna be humble

Simple life usually have the best impact in our lives. Working in a dark room isn't the problem, it becomes hard when you think there are so many things in the room. Life is best lived when you have insufficient information to live your life. Those of your classmates who knows nothing in class seems to live a happy and prosperous life why those intelligent ones have encompassed themselves with lots of information and rules that make things to hard for them. They are constrained by so many knowledge they have with them. Life is simple. Reduce those excesses. Strive to lead a moderate life. Don't take life too serious. Don't complicate your marriage. Learn to trust, to give freely, to help, to love, and to be happy.
Insufficient information is the mother of creativity. When you knows little, you think faster. But when you have so much around you, even the simplest of things become a burden to be processed. Excessive lifestyle keeps you behind. You want to be the miss Nigeria of 2020, where is the Miss Nigeria of 2002. When you have a lot of choice to make, even to choose a cloth to wear becomes a burden. Reduce the choices you have to make. Objectives are the hardest questions because they live with choices you do not know the right one. A very simple objective questions can be the toughest you can answer. Cut down those excesses. Life is simple, life is easy

The last, Number 4
Imagine how we came to this world. Naked, blind, fragile, yet we have opened our eyes to behold the complexity of life. Consider how we live this world, in a wooden casket, a single and unnecessary cloths to be turned to sands? Nature made things so easy. Don't you think you are allowing the quest for what you don't have to control your mood, your lifestyle. Yet day by day you lived with the ones you have. Don't you think you can be contented with the ones you have. Making your life simple doesn't necessary means living an archaic life. In US, the best relationship gift is a flower, but in Nigeria, it must be complex.
Living a simple life is like clearing the bush on your way to success. Life is easy, just cut down those excesses. Keep reducing those excesses till it becomes very light to live. Is relationship easy? or are we the ones that made it complex? IS marriage easy? it seems like our demands, needs, and what we think we need makes marriage complex.

Nice write up OP
Godliness with contentment is great gain .....
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by Nobody: 2:57pm On Oct 07, 2017|
Oh my goodness...This is me oh in another vessel oh.
Man is good by creation, but corrupted by desires and schemes, besides our genetically wiring, we came empty...all sorrows can be linked to the inability of the soul to become satiated and the troubling and the wrangling of the soul pushes people in chase of desires that in most time leads to a path that produces pain, frustration and lack of satiety, you're100% on point Brother
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by mrphysics(m): 3:13pm On Oct 07, 2017|
supersystemsnig:Wow, nice comment. Our desire to have more, to be more, and to earn more have placed us in a web of activities that takes most of our time. 80% of my fiverr orders are on natural recipes, weight loss, and health. The paleo diet is the diet that was eating during the stone age. That is what people want to go back to. Grill recipes is most consumed. This is because, people wants to return to the way nature made them.
Here in Nigeria, things are different. We make things so complex that we don't even know the value of simplicity
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by mrphysics(m): 3:17pm On Oct 07, 2017|
Joislim:Joislim thank you so much, hope you got something?
Yes, Godliness with contentment is great gain. My aim is to help people reduce those things that complicates their life. During my work, I open a lot of tabs, things i think are necessary, but on a closer look, there are things I have already used, yet my browser looks complicated. Many tabs open, about 20 of them.
We can all go back to that simple life. The life of a baby, a simple life, a fun filled life. Cutting down on excesses is the fastest route to achieving that.
Once again, thank you.
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by Nobody: 3:43pm On Oct 07, 2017|
Not essentially insufficient information, this is flawed bro, but i rather you use the term flexibility, which is the ability to be able to take things up and drop them without constrain. Many times the knowledge we acquire in this world morphs in our soul and produces character, as a result our actions are tied to our knowledge and in order to make changes, or improve or make significant strides, we need to be able to drop truths that were firmly part of us that becomes our actions and take up new learnings from time to time. So not the inadequacy of information, but the ability not to hold on to things too firmly and being open to learning new things, through new experiences and being open minded.

supersystemsnig:What do you think of professors? How do they reason to you? Their life is too complicated. lawyers too.
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by Nobody: 3:46pm On Oct 07, 2017|
Until people get entangled in their own contraptions,and schemes they don't value simplicity.It takes a heart that has experienced war to value peace. Or shall another of three be scared of pregnancy again? Simplicity is golden, it is hitting the rest button,it is offloading all the stuffs in us to become lighter in order to accelerate faster and attain higher objectives.
90% of the world's problem is rooted in a lack of awareness of this condition, that people have brought sorry upon themselves because of their knowledge, it twists their souls, their hearts and pushes them to make decisions that could have been done differently under a different light.
A heart of simplicity is the wise one, not the one with many words
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by Nobody: 3:52pm On Oct 07, 2017|
Bro when i called you yesterday what did i say? The most problematic people in life are intelligent people? Why are ladies confused, knowledge...Why can't educated people seek and find God, knowledge. Too much knowledge twists the heart and makes it opaque, rather than making the fabric of the heart become lighter and susceptible to becoming more elated, too much knowledge causes the heart to swell, and in this swelling pride is produced. Why do you think Germans don't believe in God? Upon the face of the earth, besides Israel and Russia, Germany has the most tenacious people when it comes to knowledge, skill and impact. They know how to take things up, see the thin lines and produce excellent result, so, when we have much knowledge, we look up, that's the mental posture of a mind that has knowledge, but in looking up, intelligent people don't see the broader picture, which is the expanse horizon. Take knowledge away from a man/woman, their lives becomes simpler. That's why intelligent people don't see the need for God because they feel and think life is a product of their capability, but then wisdom breaks down, and expose the little things that God is actively involved in, that he even in His silence has his finger on all the buttons and has the control in His hands.
My brother, an intelligent man is a fool, his intelligence is only of use, when he's soul has become excited to the higher grounds
Bottom-line, professors are full of thrash they call knowledge, an intelligent man without God is not better than a pig, the mind is the same as that of an animal, when people cross into the divine light, then true wisdom comes, take it from me as a simple scientist
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by mrphysics(m): 3:53pm On Oct 07, 2017|
supersystemsnig:A simple life is the formula to today's changing world. I see people complicate their life that the most simple thing becomes complex to them. The method of achieving goals is by simplifying those goes. Dividing them into sub goals, until they are achievable. Our imagination is often limited by the volume of things we cloud our minds with

|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by Nobody: 4:00pm On Oct 07, 2017|
Too much knowledge beclouds our minds, and with a clouded mind, one can't see the true state of things. The bottom-line of the problem of this world is complexity induced by a clouded mind, too much knowledge and a lack of need to strip one self of one's self knowledge to the most basic form, to break things into bits, and then take things a step at a time. So to achieve bigger goals, we need a finite understanding of simple things, allow me quote here quantum basics. I.e to launch a rocket, we need an understanding of the tiny intricate parts, car, the piston, ignition system, and so on...so understanding the simple things produces the ability to do things small and then strive for the higher goals
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by mrphysics(m): 5:57pm On Oct 07, 2017|
supersystemsnig:True. Simplifying our lives makes us free, so light such that we can make a step on at a time. But when we heap in ourselves loads of things, complex laws, principles that only exist in our mind, then achieving them becomes difficult if not impossible.
How can simplicity be made in a relationship? Methinks that first, people need to set realistic requirements. In business analysis, needs analysis is as a result of gap review. When you have listed where you are and where you want to be, there is this gap. In this gap, you make out your requirements and then your needs.
But what do we see, we see too intelligent individuals going into relationship. Say a little thing, you are either judgemental or you are too harsh. We have so much surrounded ourselves with knowledge that it needs energy to defreeze them from us.
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by Nobody: 6:09pm On Oct 07, 2017|
Knowledge is good, but it takes wisdom to dish out as appropriate my brother. A default setting wouldn't work optimally, cause what is a deterrent at level one, is a wonder at level thus, suffice to reiterate my earlier position that the ability to be flexible to learn to " mentally pick and drop " ideologies so we can test truths and hold on to the ones that are effective will help people live better life and achieve peace in this life.
It is knowledge that complicates, do you remember how complication came into this world? Yes, it was the chase after knowledge, thus corruption came in, knowledge must be tamed, if not, it causes its owner sorrow, many decisions that could have be managed better are bastardized by a knowledgeable mind most times... The underlining principle is how open are we to dropping our own theocracies, ideologies that are subsets of our actions and embrace the need to change. Many couples, business partners when they clash don't know what truly happens, it is their foundational doctrines that have formed their core that is the problem, hence peace can be attained if people can be lax on their core indoctrination and adopt or be willing to test new concepts. Invariably, we all all compatible, we all can work and live together peaceably, if these truths are understood, that's why i told you days back, that if an individual is of a willing heart and mind, nothing can be achieved, in business,relationships name it. This is an absolute truth that has spanned thousands of years...I searched it out and have tested it personally.
Back to been judgemental, it takes a heart of understanding to receive correction. Even God doesn't correct everybody that's why the scripture says He chastises those He loves. God may be the father of all creation, but doesn't call everyone His 100%. Suffice to add that this is a generation that people have their minds flooded that people hate on them for their prowess, wisdom etc, hence, they pull out the shovels and spades when correction is made, but in Isaiah, even the Lord said, judge Israel, that he may repent, it takes correction, and a sense of awareness for understanding and a change of character to be produced, that's why people are unrepentant and remain in their circuit of wretched character...
Bros leave the world, save yourself...You have elevated, let people learn from their experiences, i hope their days are long enough for many errors and plenty rebounds
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by Nobody: 6:10pm On Oct 07, 2017|
Let's keep gisting, you've made my day, glad to meet another vessel of the same intellectual prowess...I celebrate your wisdom brov
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by mrphysics(m): 7:23pm On Oct 07, 2017|
So many people are currently holding on to many things that they truly do not need. People build themselves with so many doctrines that complicates their life. People accept to be complex beings than to examine themselves and make life easier. Someone ate in a dream and it becomes a spiritual problem. A teenage have sex in a dream and he thinks he is possessed by a spirit wife. These are complications that we heap on ourselves. Even in science, we are not being more creative in discovering things that do not solve our societal problem. At the forefront of physics are discoveries of things that are lightyears away from us while at the basic level we are filled with needs and wants.
It is complication of self that lead to the preaching of self discovery and realization. People clothe themselves with lots of things that they don't really know who they are, what they want and whole lot. Lots of people just want to do anything at all time. Nothing specific about their life. We really need to search for things that changes our society.
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by Nobody: 7:28pm On Oct 07, 2017|
I agree with your points, but when things get lumped up necessitates the quest for answers to lingering issues, hence spirituality. As a scientist and a believer, it's not an easy challenge knowing when to drop faith and apply logic, hence the need to probe issues with different tools, don't blame people that opt for spiritual means to resolve issues, bros, i know a guy who stayed with me back in campus some years back, he was doing business and attracted envy, he got shot in his dream 30 bullets, woke up and became sick for the next 5 years unto death, he just kept dropping weight, things kept tumbling...There's vacancy for intellect, while appropriatey for faith bro...
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by Nobody: 7:29pm On Oct 07, 2017|
Truth @ many people complicate their lives. Many times after i listen to people, more than 90% of times, i see the problem is their self-knowledge and many times like a psycho, they try to think, talk and treat themselves, tell them a truth, they grab a knife. I'm done with this world of losers abeg. E do me.
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by mrphysics(m): 7:31pm On Oct 07, 2017|
supersystemsnig:Truth hurts them. People want to be lied to.
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by peterphd(m): 8:32pm On Oct 07, 2017|
Hello, why do you think 'God' is necessary for a simple life? Don't you think those who are atheists live their lives by the second, for the here and now and not for some heaven up there? Intelligence may lead to complexity but complexity is merely an offshoot of the comforts intelligence has brought us.
Which God is the true one?
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by Nobody: 8:35pm On Oct 07, 2017|
God is not needed for a simple life, some people stumble into these paths, or their lifestyle reflects it, i met one recently, so you're correct...I'm not entirely accurate..Thanks for pointing it out.
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by Nobody: 12:57pm On Oct 08, 2017|
Lets continue today with our discussions bro.
I want us to talk about something, let's think and brainstorm. Got anything you like us to chat about?
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by livingseed: 4:05pm On Oct 08, 2017|
The source is okay, the channel is where the problem is.
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by Nobody: 4:07pm On Oct 08, 2017|
Source okay, channel the problem..lol..like friends
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by livingseed: 4:27pm On Oct 08, 2017|
Well what I meant was that, (Knowledge, Wisdom and Money) sources are wasted, when not put to uses/channels that are creative, considerate and compassionate.
The VALUE of anything is what you can do with whether good or evil.
|Re: Life Is Simple, Life Is Easy by Nobody: 4:32pm On Oct 08, 2017|
Wisdom, applause applause, applause, i respect your wisdom. May God add more
