Simple

I am simplistic. I can't imagine anything I'd rather be accused of than reducing life to great simplicities!

When modern astro-physics declares the origin of the cosmos to be a mathematical singularity, that is simplistic, but I get it. When Gandhi says, God has no religion, that is simplistic, but I get it. When Jesus says, Let your yes be yes and your no be no, that is simplistic, but I get it. When St. John writes, God is love, that is simplistic, but I get it. When the Upanishads affirm, Om Tat Sat: Everything is God, that is simplistic, but I get it.

What I don't get is why so many people hide behind complex arguments, and drape themselves in mind.
