Stephanie Dowrick on YouTube: Gaining simplicity

Stephanie Dowrick writes: “To open and inspire this talk on simplicity, I used a teaching from the Upanishads: “There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. That is the light that shines in your heart.”  Later in the talk I reflect on how unconsciously we sometimes subvert our peace, complicate our lives, allow ourselves to be distracted from what most benefits us and others. But we do this not because we are ignorant, but because we forget what most profoundly supports us. I hope that this talk is itself very supportive. It was supportive to prepare and give it! The quality of the filming is not up to our usual standard, but the sound quality is fine. And a lovely lesson of simplicity is to focus on what’s going well – and to have more of it! Enjoy.
