Simplicity of Life: Why does being Human Complicate Everything?

Steve Leasock


What has humankind done with the simplicity of life? The evolution of our species has induced complexity into our existence. This doesn’t necessarily stem, from our ever-changing and developing human-made environment, but from our misuse of the wonderful gifts of humankind, such as creativity, intelligence, and a higher level of consciousness, which surpasses any other known living being. A somewhat discouraging downside to our species development is that we are also plagued by emotions, conditioning, and the ego, which manipulate, restrict, and corrupt many areas of our existence.

This combination of human characteristics forms the basis of our complexity. The irony is that most of these self-imposed confusions, fears, and complexities are not needed in our daily human activities. This demand to dominate life has imposed an illusion of separation from it.

The forms and objects of our man-made existence content are mostly an illusion. We progressively maintain a behavior that enforces the patterns which were developed throughout humankind’s history. We hold on to unsubstantiated assumptions and beliefs that often only divert our human consciousness from corresponding with the universal intelligence. We have more and more difficulty in finding peace and joy in living.

We have been taught to seek man-made materialistic content to fulfill our supposed emptiness. Many people; including family, friends, and institutions wish to dictate how we should live and what we should think. We are no longer able to enjoy our existence. Mankind is compiled to search and reach for something, anything, to fill a void, which we ourselves created. This illusion is nurtured by the content of humankind’s society. The happiness that does seem to appear from time to time is very short-lived. There is no real substance in many of our human endeavors.

Simplicity of Life: Why does being Human Complicate Everything? Description:

Simplicity of Life is an exploration into self-awareness and human existence as a whole with ideas and insights that challenge the outdated belief systems of yore, and offers alternative ways of thinking that will allow anyone to tap into a larger and more universal consciousness. An increase in awareness has begun to pave the way toward unity.

We desire simplicity in our existence; but how do we reach it in a world that thrives on complexity? What has humankind done with the simplicity of life?

Life is what it is; there is no way to truly define it. The human species has taken this state of simplicity and made it very complicated. This complexity, which we deem as being a true reality, is only a man-made construction.

Every moment of life is, by true definition, the first, and the last of our human existence. Throughout most of human history we’ve been divided—stuck in structured behavior patterns and belief systems and confined to the stark cultural boundaries of a manmade world. This has led to feelings of confusion and loneliness, a constant sense of lacking as we search for something more.

Will you resign yourself to anxiety and suffering, or tap into the simplicity and beauty of a higher consciousness?

For the majority of humans, life comes and goes without ever seeing the open door in front of them. Now, more than ever, individuals are feeling the need to leave their old ways behind and recognize the universal intelligence that has always been our birthright.

“There is no teacher or student in life. We are all just walking each other home.”
