Thank You for Your patient waiting for me. Last week I spent in the peaceful place where I invite you for a walking. The place is magic and enigmatic. It is hard to find the place even on the maps and I almost sure you have not any chance to see it anywhere else. So take this unique possibility!
“The miracle of life is concluded in patience and simplicity” I thought when I was walking on this street in the small belorussian town where my mother-in-law lives.
Life is simple here. The houses are wood and small. Usually two rooms and a kitchen with a big wood-burning stove are in a typical village’s house.
There are no rooms for depressions here. The inhabitants even have never heard about psychiatrist and psychoanalysis. Scientists have confirmed rural life is better for happy life. Researchers have shown that the parts of the brain dealing with stress and emotion are affected by living in the big city.
Watching the spectacular sunset and feeling the warm air flowing in hairs are the best cure for our urban brain.
“Simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being. Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are. Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world”. Lao Tzu’s words is the fundamental truth we often forget. I will remember.
Simplicity implies beauty, purity and clarity here. A vigorous rooster’s cry is a natural alarm clock, the first golden rays of the sun on a pillow are tickling my eyes saying “Good Morning” and a tantalizing scent of a homemade pie languishing in the oven promises a really good day.
And in the evening when the sky is flourished with star myriads gentle wind tells his delightful breezy story about true happiness …
Happiness is simple. Sometimes everything we do to find it is complicated.
I am grateful for your smile now and these flowers I have gathered are for you. Thank you for your happiness now.

What a beautiful Home.. and I can see why Madam Depressions does not live here… Cosy and quaint.. a woodburner to keep all warm, Love a real log fire.. :-).. And simple living is often the best.. Good home grown food,, lots of laughter and home entertainment.. 🙂
I feel Glorialana.. that the future will be going back to something similar in many places… Life is getting too complicated and corrupted in Greed…
I pray one day people will see how getting back to our basics will bring with it so much more happiness..
