Following on recent posts on relaxation, Contentment is a perceptual art that requires cultivation.
As you contemplate contentment you realize that to be otherwise is refusing reality and refusing creation. Contentedly accept each moment/situation for what it has to offer and give. In acceptance and contentment you allow life to evolve in the manner it has for you. You are not trying to force your life to follow a path other than that evolving for you. You are not trying to tell creation and life what is best. You are congruent with the forces of creation and nature.
In contentment accept Now. In contentment accept current reality. In contentment accept whatever situation you find yourself in. Relax into life and flow with it.
