“Ease” is the psychological experience of feeling little to no internal resistance in relationship to a given activity.
“Difficulty” is the psychological experience of feeling considerable internal resistance in relationship to a given activity.
Complex tasks can be fulfilling and stimulating when one is able to eliminate, transcend, or cope with the resistance they feel around those activities. Conversely, simple task can be exhausting and depressing when one is not able to manage or overcome the resistance they feel around those activities.
Neither the simplicity nor the complexity of the elements involved in your life have anything to do with your happiness.
It’s always about you and your relationship to your own internal resistance.
In the absence of resistance, even the arduous can feel effortless.
In the presence of resistance, watching an episode of Sesame Street can feel complicated.
That’s today’s two cents.
P.S. Watching episodes of Sesame Street has been known to reduce resistance in many of its viewers. You’ve been warned 😉
