Simplicity of Life: Why does being Human Complicate Everything? Paperback – December 20, 2016
"An insightful book that touches on all aspects of our existence in this Universe. Steve's knowledge is impressive,but even more so is his ability to help others connect the dots between matter,mind and consciousness. As I read this book I was reminded of the "Mind the Gap." I felt honored to understand better what was happening in our minds,while the mind was tuning into the silence that supports our every move. Perhaps most importantly, I was able to see a meaningful life living by the heart. This is a wonderful book!"
- Nikki Cordonnier, Belgium
"So much truth.....the song sound of silence by Disturbed....the music video keeps playing in my head while reading your book. So much truth. Being a woman in the process of awakening your book came at the rite time. I loved the book so far and the message and facts keeps me glued to the book. I just relate so much (my views or understanding of your book) may differ from others. But yes overall 10 out of 10 read even for a amateur like me." - Heidi Olivier, South Africa
"Thank you very very much for your precious book which you named beautifully Simplicity of life. You are a real little Buddha . In fact, we are all little Buddha although we are still dragging among our conditioned mind.But, you can reveal everything is HERE and NOW...nowhere to us to go no time to wait,too.You lit the world by experiencing from your daily life and also all words come from your heart not from mind." Kalu Di Di, India
"I would love to read your second book Steve Leasock. Congratulations! Your first book, One Moment In Life was amazing. Good insight and inspirational. Enjoyable to read. Thank you and keep writing. Namaste" Sandra Sandi Rocks, America
"In one way or another you are an amazing writer and obvious a teacher. Your writing strives to explain to the readers. And when reading, you sense immediately your deep insights of life which transforms in your words. When reading your book you sense you're writing with the flow.That's an amazing talent. You make sense of our world. Constantly reflecting on your writing and in most paragraphs recognize myself, what to sense in life. What we shall understand in life. What we ignored or misinterpreted in life.What life is all about. Thank you for sharing your amazing gift." Lotte Linn, South Africa
Is it really that simple? The author tells us that life really is that simple. The book offers alternative ideas for experiencing how we live.Steve Leasock describes aspects of belief patterns and behavior that human beings have not really benefited of, so far. The book material illustrates what we have done in our attempts to explain who we are, why we experience this existence and is there a God?
Have we been fooled by the activities of the mind? If this is true, it is because we are not conscious of the difference between object existence and life? What are beliefs, thoughts and behavioral conditioning? These are some of the topics that the book considers. We are playing a game of illusions projected by the mind. Is it time to stop playing the game? That is what the author is asking us. Will we be able to find the Answer? 5.0 out of 5 stars By Cristian on 31 Jan. 2017 Format:Paperback Amazon UK
I am inspired and grateful to be touched by Steve's Book "Simplicity of Life". Which he shares awareness about the individual and collective consciousness transformation conditioned by society, culture,religion, family, friends. These factors appear to shape our perception or reality which presents that complexity results from these mental constructs.This book can remind us to be aware of our own mental states and question the nature of our own perception or reality. Me and my family and friends have had meaningful discussions about "Simplicity of Life" I recommend this book and the author Steve Leasock. Great book; very inspirational. Thank you.

From the Back Cover
We desire simplicity in our existence; but how do we reach it in a world that thrives on complexity?
Being in sync with life will allow you to experience daily activities naturally, as each unfolds, and not how the mind construes the experiences. The human species has taken life and made it very complicated. This complexity, which we deem as being a true reality, is only a man-made construction.
Any life-form that evolves beyond a given mental and conscious level can achieve a deeper synchronicity with love...life and ultimately universal consciousness.
Simplicity of Life is an exploration into self-awareness and human existence as a whole with ideas that challenge the outdated belief systems of yore, and offers alternative ways of thinking that will allow anyone to tap into a larger and more universal consciousness. Author Steve Leasock provides enlightening insights for anyone who has ever found themselves searching for something more.
We have the ability to alter and change the energy ebb and flow within the dimension of universal consciousness. Simplicity of Life offers useful stepping stones for you on this inner journey.

Will reading Steve's 2nd & newest book be a "head - scratcher", an awareness amplifier or totally discarded by your own beliefs? Only one way to find out is to order a copy to read for yourself...keeping in mind just because one believes something doesn't make it Truth!
Clearly a catharsis for the author and reader alike, Simplicity of Life, by Steve Leasock, is an extraordinary effort that poses fundamental questions about the nature of human experience. Though the author bemoans that it is in the questioning that complexity arises and diverges from an innate simplicity of Life, the author asks; “Why must there be a reason or answer for everything? What are we hoping to find?” Leasock further postulates; “Life does not wish for us to ask any questions. Life essentially only wants to give and be experienced. The secret is that we (all forms engulfed in life) are the source. The importance lies in accepting that your body (any body), including the brain’s mental images of the Universe, is not, and can never be what we are searching for during our form existence. We are a form that has
been blessed with life. It is our choice what we do with the content of this human form. There is no God, and there is no deity responsible for life or the content of our human existence. We are responsible for both. Our form’s true essence is life, thus by use of our own definition of life (oneness) we are God. We do not have a genuine purpose. Our form existence is without significance. Do we persist in searching a field of illusion for answers to questions that we already know? Human beings are the actual Gods and/or God that most people insist have created us.”
In reading Simplicity of Life I am made to wonder. Is the world that we know anathema or pathway? Are worldly conventions purposely duplicitous and nefarious or merely well-meaning even though often blind? Is “what we have been taught or told” a fair and condemnable indictment of the failings of being human or simply an immature process toward eventual spiritual maturation as a species? Is the world and universe “dependent on what we think, what we wish and what we decide.”, as the author suggests? Or, are we, in human experience, merely fortunate passengers on a journey of special dispensation, affecting the world in which we live along the way? What is simplicity of life as distinct from complexity of living? Perhaps, as the author points out, complexity is only illusion, Reality is simple.
In search for answers, Simplicity of Life considers spirituality in a thoroughly thoughtful manner, and In doing so, Leasock encourages the simplicity of inner reflection on complicated questions of ultimate consequence.
A must read! Thank you Steve Leasock!
