I enjoyed looking for Snapshots of Super Simple Satisfaction – and I took pictures of several which I added to the end of the previous post.
I am determined to accustom my mind to appreciating and adjusting to the Super Simple as a modus operandi. I really am looking for ways to increase simplicity – or reduce complexity in my life. And I’m doing well. For example, after all this work absorbing and practising the Anthony William (Medical Medium) protocols, I have drawn up my own protocols as the following simple guidelines which suit me:
I am using a Daily Food Tracker, a Daily MEDS tracker, a Daily Planner and today I designed a Daily Money Tracker. If my life is too complicated to track what I am doing, then it’s too complicated! And tracking what I do do helps me grow my consciousness of my actions. This helps me s l o w d o w n.
It also makes me feel more secure, grounded and anchored. It suits and speaks to my beautiful Aspie nature too.
-29- Whoever wishes to take over the world will not succeed. The world is a sacred vessel and nothing should be done to it. Whoever tries to tamper with it will mar it. Whoever tries to grab it will lose it. Hence, there is a time to go ahead and a time to stay behind. There is a time to breathe easy and a time to breathe hard. There is a time to be vigorous and a time to be gentle. There is a time to gather and a time to release. Therefore, the True Person avoids extremes, self-indulgence, and extravagance. (Tao Te Ching, Chap 29)
Beautiful. I’ll go with ‘avoids extremes‘ as my takeaway phrase. Yesterday I was extremely tired. The day before that I was extremely nervous – and extremely hard-working. The day before that I was extremely anxious. My adrenals can not take it. I can’t take it. It’s not sustainable. And it is not WISE.
I’m heading into such an ‘extremely’ busy period, I’m not sure I’m going to be able to see my loved ones properly. How can I reframe? How can I get WISER on my use of time for work in order to AVOID ANY EXTREMES?
Sometimes we feel virtuous in the extreme push or the extreme occupation. We pat ourselves on the back for being flat out and ‘giving our all’. It is the apparent and visible-to-others antidote to our fear of our own laziness, apathy or self-indulgence.
Sounds like a classic ‘Protestant work ethic’.
And maybe it is – until we decide to listen to our inner promptings. What do you inner promptings say now?
Haha, this old chestnut: ‘Slow down, you move too fast…’. Will I ever learn this?
Be true to yourself. You are learning it. And you are learning the boundaries which allow you to put a foot down and say ‘No thank you’ to others. This is all revision, and deeper incorporation of that which you know and are practising. So start by thanking yourself for the work done on this so far.
Thank you, good me. Well done. Good work. I’m not flying out the door most mornings. I am working on the MEDSAN routine. Can you imagine if I changed things so I had a max of ONE day-long outside booking a WEEK?!
Yes! Of course. That would work beautifully. Or 2 half days in the afternoon. You are welcome to restructure how you work, always. You are learning how to do this. Keeping it all Super Simple is your key to the door of peace.
That is serious stuff. Tell me more today about keeping it Super Simple.

- That which we grab, we lose (see Lao Tzu above)
- The Magnet does not grab, or reach, or stumble out entangling itself. It lets the correct elements come to it.
- Let your inner anchor be ‘magnetic’ and trust that it will bring to you that which you need, no more and no less.
Just allowing patiently, trustingly, tending to your inner state, polishing your gold anchor and keeping it primed.
I shall not reach and grab. So, today I am…? I’m cautious of saying ‘attracting’…
Ok. Ty. Let’s work with that.
I am magnetic
