You probably think this is spiritual death…but in fact the opposite is true.
Contentment with your lot in life allows for an expansion of energy.
Releasing tension invokes relaxation and when the body and mind can take a collective sigh more energy is made available. Stress requires a great deal of fuel to maintain it’s restrictive hold on the functions of the body and the mind. Letting go of the need to have more, be more, do more can be very liberating and ironically, in all probability you will be able to do more.
Contentment requires a letting go of ambition, desire, expectation. Contrary to popular belief, all of these things create restriction and severely limit your real potential.
This is because your real potential exists beyond what you know to be truth. It is so very much greater than you can comprehend and to a certain extent requires you to stand aside and allow it to reveal itself gradually but surely.
This is not say you do nothing waiting for your potential to magically appear. Go on with your plans whatever they may be and gently allow the energy of creation to flow around them. Enjoy each day, do whatever you do because you enjoy it. let go of achieving for achievings sake. Check your attitude during each day.Are you relaxed? Are you creating a series of moments that you can truly enjoy? Are you observing life and making choices that are considered and not reactive? Practise making each moment a perfect moment. Load it with all of the joy you can access and be amazed as this moment joins with the next to create a joyful experience.
