As I’ve said many times before my favorite book of all time is Illusions by Richard Bach.
The foreword for the book tells the story of a Messiah preaching to a crowd and the audience becoming so inspired that they swear, en masse, to do anything — ANYTHING — to serve God.
To which the Messiah asks: what if God’s one and only commandment was that you be happy for the rest of your life?
In other words, what if your purpose were ultimately to quit-yer-bellyachin’ and just ENJOY LIFE?
To Hindus, being content is a not an ideal — it’s a sacred commandment.
SANTOSHA literally means “thou shalt be content.”
Today let’s explore ways of being content and accepting this challenge to “be content” as a sacred admonition.
Remember to post your questions and comments — I respond to them all personally.
BTW, you’ve probably noticed that I don’t accept outside advertising — that’s because cool people like you share these messages with coworkers, friends, and family who will often hire me for speeches, and/or purchase my books, Complaint FreeⓇ bracelets, and online programs.
So if this post inspired you, touched your heart, or expanded your mind, please do everyone a favor and share it with at least one other person whom you think would like it as well.
How does one stay content and grateful with an undiagnosed immune issue and living with chronic pain for five years.
I love your book To: You Love, God and Just purchased Happy Stories for my Dad for Father’s Day.
