Simple Secret

There is a famous book called “The Little Prince” that describes a tale of a pilot who meets a boy from a planet in space.  The story unfolds describing various unique characters that could represent an aspect about ourselves and society.  The little prince travels from planet to planet meeting with special characters along the way.  The story of the “Little Prince” is a story for all ages.  Children can be opened to eccentric and unique characters, while adults could find the story telling a representation of our very lives.  The story is noted to be in depth with philosophical meanings.

Throughout the book are quotes that can reach to you.  As you read the book, you may find that it will touch you.  There is a famous quote given about mid way of the book that was reaching out:

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly.  What is essential is invisible to the eye.” – The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

To fulfill ourselves, we should follow our hearts.  It is simple.  It depends on our perspective.  Growing up in a world with something new sprouting in every corner, we could face many challenges.  Each challenge is like a hurdle running in an olympic race.  Sometimes it is hard to see what is really true pass all the hurdles that stand like mountains raised upon a summits view.  Nevertheless, in a miraculous way, our hearts hone in to the signal to where we need to go.  If we listen within us, we can remember the simple secret shared by the little prince.

One thought on “Simple Secret

  1. Just found something that was awesome! When you read a book, there within is inspiration that the author suggests. The author begins by inspiring you. Though, who inspired the author?

    It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye. – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

    The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart. – Buddha

    These two quotes are very similar. There could also be many other authors and others throughout the ages that even made a similar quote. Where does an author find inspiration? When you read a book, there is the author’s intent within the reading. There is also a source where inspiration turns up.

    We also know the quote well as “to follow your heart”. It could be that an ancient wisdom and today, authors and sages like the buddha speak of natural wisdom told through timeless ages. Natural wisdom is that of what we all know. It could be like common sense. Though, it could be brought up again and again to help remind us in a way.

    When you find a connection, it is amazing! Reading the Little Prince, it is said to be with deeply rooted in philosophical meanings and it is surely fantastic. I hope you will find a connection in readings and also discover great adventrues out there.
