August: Striving for simplicity

HAVING DISCARDED THE OBVIOUS IN FAVOUR OF INTELLECTUAL COMPLEXITY, MEN AND WOMEN HAVE LOST TOUCH WITH THEIR FEELINGS, INCLUDING THOSE FEELINGS THAT PERTAIN TO THE MYSTERY OF GENDER.

Volume III

The warrior, on the other hand, knowing that the secret of being successful lies in saving as much personal power as is possible, always aims for simplicity, since complications are an unnecessary drain on personal power.

A WARRIOR CUTS OUT ALL UNNECESSARY ACTS; IN THIS WAY HE SAVES HIS PERSONAL POWER.

To assume that something must be difficult in order to be worthy of consideration is to be prejudiced, and prejudice, for or against, is an unnecessary act. The warrior, knowing that nothing in the world is what it appears to be, does not make the mistake of assuming that if something looks simple it cannot be true, or for that matter, that it really will be so simple in practice.
