How to be content?
If you are not content, it means you have some unfulfilled desires. Right?
Do you have the faith that these desires will be fulfilled? If you do, then there is no problem, your mind will become calm and contentment will dawn.
For many people this is not the case. They have so many unfulfilled desires and have absolutely no faith that these will be realised. In this case, you have to learn to drop these desires. You are going to die. What difference is it going to make, if a particular desire is fulfilled or not?! If you can take your mind to this place, you are done. The remembrance of your own “mortality” will calm your mind and you will instantly start to appreciate what you have in life and contentment comes to you.
If you can’t even do this – well then, Pray. A sincere prayer is definitely answered. It’s quite amazing to know that unfulfilled desires can lead you to prayer and surrender to the Divine Almighty!
Pray, work for whatever it is you desire, and wait, and know that your desires and you yourself will be taken care of.
If you see any of the Gods in the Hindu pantheon, you will see that they have many arms. One of these arms is usually held up, with palm facing outwards, another held down and blessings coming out of it. Ever wondered what it means?!
It means – Wait, Wait … It’s coming to you… Wait, Wait … I am giving!
Ask, Pray, Work, Wait.
Don’t forget to Smile!
