The world has chosen to define simplemindedness. Here are a few examples:
• Simpleminded in Merriam-Webster: Unsophisticated/ foolish
• Simpleminded in American Heritage: Lacking in sophistication or subtly.
• Simpleminded in Dictionary.com: Mentally deficient
You may notice the happy serenity in the lives of the “simpleminded”. A subtle sense of humor working in harmony with life’s circumstances. A natural power in their original simplicity. Plain. Honest. Natural.
Why is complicated revered and simple ignored?
Why does an explanation give answers while silence leaves questions?
Why does doing more seem better than doing less?
Why is intellectual knowledge admired but knowledge gathered through experience not?
“No matter how it seems to others, he is able to accomplish what he does because he is simpleminded.” – talking about Winne the Pooh
