Things are always more complicated than they seem ... and they're also always far simpler. It all depends on what level we look at. Examine events on too microscopic a scale, get distracted by day-to-day ephemera, try to do too many tasks at once, turn everything into a crisis --- and life becomes impossibly complex. Or focus on what's really important --- and life is suddenly simple. Most of what we worry about is unworthy of us. Some situations, individually or in conjunction, are critical. Keep watch for them. Relax & be alert.
