cummings' Poem of Simplicity in Life

I finished Soulful Simplicity today. I had many moments of clarity, teary moments, hopeful moments and joyful ones. I am ready to get to work but I am promising to be patient with myself- as I have a lot of work to day. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your stories, words and soul. I am very grateful to have found you, your blog and this beautiful book. I wish I had participated in the Closet Challenge- although, I think I will still write the essay on why I want my life and my family’s life more soulfully simple- just for myself. Thank you again.

Writer’s Goal By art to attain simplicity.

Successful simplicity is extraordinarily difficult, but worth the effort in the end.

However, its simplicity is what makes it so complex.

Leonardo da Vinci said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Some people choose to downsize their lives for spiritual reasons or out of concern for the environment. For others, the decision may be out of economic necessity. Whatever the reason, living simply has inspired belief among these essayists.

Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity.

In this increasingly complicated world, the idea of simplicity has a powerful allure. Just look at the success of magazines like Real Simple. Simplicity has become very popular. It has become an aesthetic. But is this true simplicity? To me, the ideal of simplicity that is so elegantly arranged on the glossy pages of magazines looks a lot like advertising for more stuff. So, is it true simplicity people want or just the appearance of it? To simplify does not mean to simply organize an ever-expanding cache of possessions. It doesn’t mean having it all but just being better organized about it. I’ll admit, I’m as big a fan of IKEA as there ever was. I have, at times, become obsessed with the pursuit of the perfect home image, attempting to model my entire home to look just like it came from the pages of a catalog or magazine. But do I really need all this stuff? It’s an easy trap to fall into.

The iambic tetrameter along with the simplicity of the poem conceals the actual meaningfulness.
cummings describes the link between age and happiness by relating the two with simplicity.

What makes art and literature so interesting is that it presents us with unusual things that encourage us to ask questions about what we already know. It’s about returning us, especially we older readers, to a state of unfamiliarity, offering an opportunity to rediscover some new insight through things we don’t quite recognise (as it was for all of us in the very beginning). This is perhaps what reading and visual literacy are all about - and what picture books are good for - continuing that playful inquiry we began in childhood, of using imagination to find significance and meaning in those ordinary, day-to-day experiences that might otherwise remain unnoticed. The lessons we learn from studying pictures and stories are best applied to a similar study of life in general - people, places, objects, emotions, ideas and the relationships between them all. At it’s most successful, fiction offers us devices for interpreting reality, and imagining how many such interpretations might be possible. The novelist Milan Kundera has said that we go on being children, regardless of age, because in life we are always encountering new things that challenge us to understand them, instances where a practised imagination is actually more useful that all laboriously acquired knowledge.

With this simplicity, however, there is a break from reality, and there are consequences.

The eighth virtue is humility. To be humble is to take specific actions in anticipation of your own errors. To confess your fallibility and then do nothing about it is not humble; it is boasting of your modesty. Who are most humble? Those who most skillfully prepare for the deepest and most catastrophic errors in their own beliefs and plans. Because this world contains many whose grasp of rationality is abysmal, beginning students of rationality win arguments and acquire an exaggerated view of their own abilities. But it is useless to be superior: Life is not graded on a curve. The best physicist in ancient Greece could not calculate the path of a falling apple. There is no guarantee that adequacy is possible given your hardest effort; therefore spare no thought for whether others are doing worse. If you compare yourself to others you will not see the biases that all humans share. To be human is to make ten thousand errors. No one in this world achieves perfection.
