It talked about the expectations on us, striving to meet ideals and goals, with little hope of success.
It talked about why so many people these days are drawn to simplicity : "After years of believing the expectations and putting in the effort only to fail to measure up over and again, simplicity is like rest. Simplicity changes the rules. What an amazing possibility. "
And finally, he talks about how simplicity is not an end of itself, it will not make you have true peace, it can only give you an idea, a glimpse, of peace. It can and will make your life easier, it will lighten your load in many ways. But it can never solve all your problems, answer your questions, nor make you completely free.
"But I must caution (I understand this point will not be received by everyone) that simplicity is only like an amazing possibility. Simplicity is like this. Imagine huge, really big and thick and unbreakable, glass doors that open onto the most magnificent outdoor scene your mind can comprehend. If you like forests, it is a forest scene. If you like the ocean, it is a beach scene. If you like mountains, it is a mountain scene. Whatever it is, if you were out there then you would be happy as can be. But you are behind the glass doors, and they are filthy and curtains are drawn across them. Simplicity is only like pulling the curtains and cleaning the glass. And there is much benefit in doing so. You have let the light in. You will receive pleasure looking outside. By looking out you will come to learn something more about beauty. Probably you will enjoy your time inside more knowing something so wonderful exists out there. That is what simplicity is like. Grace is like someone unlocking the glass doors and welcoming you outside."
