Simple Ideals

via Daily Prompt: Successful

Simple minded people often are labeled “unsophisticated, foolish, or mentally challenged.” However, for evidence to the contrary, I offer a quote from Jiddu Krishnamurti, “It is a great art to have an abundance of knowledge and experience – to know the richness of life, the beauty of existence, the struggles, the miseries, the laughter, the tears – and yet keep your mind very simple; and you can have a simple mind only when you know how to love.”

The Apostle Paul wrote to the church of ancient Corinth, “But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.”  Jesus spoke the message of love simply, “A new commandment I give to you: Love one another.”

I may be labeled “simple-minded,” but I wonder if our Country will ever really be wise enough to implement these simple ideals and just love each other.  I sure hope so, so I pray for it every day.
