What is the absolute simplicity for a state of mind?

My thoughts after I watched wonderful movie “Seven year in Tibet“. The excerpt from conversation between main character (Brad Pitt) and Dalai Lama, which I love very much:

- Tell me a story about climbing mountains.

- That’s one way to fall asleep. Those stories bore even me.

- Then tell me what you love about it.

- What…

- The absolute simplicity. That’s what I love. When you’re climbing, your mind is clear, freed of all confusions. You have focus. And suddenly the light becomes sharper, sounds are richer, and you are filled with… the deep, powerful presence of life.
