If tired, sleep

Short of sounding too zen, it really is quite simple.

The strange thing is I have, more often than not, complicated the process.

Turns out when you remove the mind chatter and the stories, and just bring your awareness to the present, it becomes a simple theory and a powerful way of life.

If tired, sleep.
If hungry, eat.
If sad, cry.
If happy, laugh.

If complicated, simplify.
