Guidance on Contentment

 

Santosa

Many people in the world today are forever seeking something new. They change their cars, their jobs, their houses, and even their partners, always thinking that these changes will bring about the happiness they desire. They think that changing the physical things around them or changing the company they keep, or their shape or size, will bring the final solution. This is not so.

Certainly change is necessary. There is only one thing certain in this world and that is that things will change. But people need to look inwards to bring about change. Outward changes do have their place, but it is the inner state which brings us true happiness or contentment. Those who study yoga should remember to give themselves time each day for quiet reflection, for rest and relaxation and for meditation. God is within and will provide you with all the answers you seek, you only need to listen to your Inner Voice.
