Complicated

Complicated

Many situations may seem uncompromisingly complicated, until we unravel them.

Every complicated situation has a beginning and an end.  Some are of our own making and in our own mind, and we suddenly find the answer and wonder why we thought “it” was so complicated in the first place.

A child comes to you with knotted hair, an elastic entwined, and you settle down and carefully untangle the webs nest gently moving the offending piece of elastic until the knot is gone and the hair becomes tangle free.

Complicated is a puzzle.  We start somewhere, anywhere, and work our way back and forth until we find a beginning and an end result that makes sense. Suddenly, whatever confounded us, is no longer complicated.

The universe is complicated spectacularly brilliantly.  Scientists have thought pondered examined and puzzled on it’s make up eventually finding startling results that create answers and often even more questions.  Still the quest goes on.

Relationships get complicated when we don’t understand another persons point of view or stand on a topic or situation of extreme value to  us.  Suddenly it’s complicated. Why don’t they understand? Emotions get in the way walls go up suddenly we aren’t speaking freely any more fearing perhaps a confrontation or negative response.  The result, “it’s complicated.”

In reality, complications are either solved and answers found to our satisfaction, or we are in a position to understand it or we stop moving freely.

Luxury

Luxury

Luxury means different things to different people.  To some, it relates to things such as fine dining, cars, homes, furniture.  To others it is comprised of vacations, warm, welcoming, pampered.  While some luxuriate in a great read or perhaps music that invigorates the soul.  Then there’s the luxury of time and the ability to use it freely for whatever we wish.  What of the luxury of thought?  Or the luxury of freedom? Freedom to be who you want to be, do what you want to do, when you want to do it, with whom you wish to enjoy it!

Luxury whatever the ideal, brings relaxation, happiness, peacefulness to the body and the spirit like a summit reached, or a dream fulfilled.  No matter how large or small the scale, it is attainable, refreshing, and pleasurable.

Some would turn up their nose and yell it is selfish and meager and unimportant and lasts momentarily scoffing at the idea.  To those who reach out for the luxury of a pair of shoes, their next meal or a roof over their head, or a warm winter coat, or that last breath, or freedom of speech, it is meaningful and filled with relief, a luxury incomparable.

Most important of all is the luxury of good health with which we are able to partake in life, in simply breathing.
