WISDOM OF THE SIMPLE LIFE


It is characteristic of the left brain to complicate life by all the efforts of the ego to appear successful…rarely does it enjoy the present moment but instead is preoccupied with its past history and the goals of the future…the right brain on the other hand prefers to be aware of present by simply enjoying the gifts of its sensory perceptions.
