Contentment

contentment

Contentment is a power as well as a virtue.

As a virtue it allows me to be generous and free. As a power it makes be stand tall and complete, without the need for support.

I feel discontent when there are still unfulfilled ‘needs’ within the self. Emotional needs as well as physical needs.
Then when obstacles prevent me from fulfilling those ‘needs’ it causes upheaval inside and out. It is the subtle fear and insecurity of potentially being deprived.

Like a half filled jar of marbles, the slightest movement on the outside will cause disruption and noise on the inside.

To develop contentment I need to see benefit in everything that comes to me. It will free me from expectations and allow me to be flexible and internally satisfied.

Contentment is the key to remaining stable in the face of external challenges as I have nothing to gain and nothing to lose: I am already full.

 

Om Shanti
