20140824-184336.jpgDay 10 – Living With Contentment

Today’s quote is from Andrew Weil. “I think we should be working for contentment… an inner sense of fulfillment that’s relatively independent of external circumstances.”

Today’s centering thought is I am content, just as I am.

Today’s Sanskrit mantra is Sampriya Hum, which means “I am complete contentment.”

From today’s message:
When we speak of spiritual contentment, we mean more than just feeling satisfied with the circumstances of life. Too often that kind of contentment includes a tinge of resignation as well. Real contentment is the happiness that at your core, all is well in your world. In this state, you are aware that you have everything you need right now to feel good about yourself, others, and life. Even with outer conflicts and uncertainties, your core existence is settled, self-contained, and you know you possess whatever is needed to meet any situation. Living true contentment is more than confidence, it is the feeling of inner fulfillment.”

The tenth day of Oprah and Deepak Chopra’s Expanding Your Happiness Meditation Experience was about living with contentment.

Oprah shared that “what is the secret to beginning from a starting point of happiness every day? It is this… allowing your life to unfold with this confidence–knowing that all is well, and all will be well, no matter what.”

Through my Spiritual journey, I am learning each and every day to Trust, with a capital “T.” I have mentioned many times before that I am allowing the unfolding of my life with Divine Guidance and Divine Timing. That I am trusting the process of Life, because inside I know that no matter what happens, all will be well. So this day’s meditation was a very good reminder and validation for me, and I am truly grateful for it.

Deepak said that “being happy doesn’t mean that everything looks perfect and ideal every minute of the day. It means that life is unfolding without struggle… that anxiety and insecurity aren’t our companions, and that the best time of our lives is now.”

Celebrate the present now, and know that no matter what, “all will be well.”

20140817-182507.jpgDay 6 – Feeling Hope

Today’s quote is from Bryant McGill. “The greatest joys in life are found not only in what we do and feel, but also in our quiet hopes and labors for others.”

Today’s centering thought is hope lights my path.

Today’s Sanskrit mantra is Shreem, which means “I am all possibilities.”

From today’s message:
Hope is a key spiritual component of our joyful self. Spiritual hope is not a feeble, anxious wish for things to be better…it is the active engagement of our aspiration to the almighty force of evolution. True hope ties our individuality to the cosmos, giving us the guidance and support to move toward out hopes and dreams. This expansion and fulfillment of our aspirations is an essential joy of life.

We feel happy when our love grows and our territory of influence expands, and hope is the leading edge of this expansion.

The sixth day of Oprah and Deepak Chopra’s Expanding Your Happiness Meditation Experience is about hope.

Oprah said, “your truest self doesn’t wait for hope, or hope for hope. Your essential self emanates hope–rooted in the all powerful certainty of Source… If dreams reflect the past, hope summons the future. Access that certainty and hope, and the happiness that flows to you will be more powerful than you can imagine. It is a force that grounds you and lifts you up, all at once.

As mentioned in another post, I feel like I am at a crossroad. I feel like my life is gearing up for some major changes, but I am not sure the “what,” the “when,” and the “how” yet. This is making me feel anxious.

Yet, the only thing that is helping me is my hope in the knowledge that “all will be well.” That’s why I am only anxious, but not afraid. It took a long time to stop gaining new fears. That I am just anxious is a big leap. I guess I need to work on the anxiousness part. HaHa! 😁

Deepak said that “happy people are optimistic and hopeful. Hope is a positive force in their lives which is different from feeling anxious and hoping that everything will turn out all right. When your sense of hope flows from The Source, you know that new possibilities will emerge and that good outcomes are in sight.”

I hope for good outcomes, whatever they are. I will focus on the now, and trust that everything will work for my best and highest good.
