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.”

20140806-233330.jpgDay 17 – Accepting Every Part Of Me

Thought for the day: As I am willing to accept all of me, I am more willing to accept more of you

Daily Quote:
Trust does not mean that everything will be all right. Trust means everything is already all right. Trust knows no future; trust knows only the present. The moment you think of the future, it is already distrust.” ~Osho

Today’s message from Osho is about accepting all that is the Self.

We comprise of good and bad, dark and light, and beauty and ugly. In order to be whole, we must accept all of us. The minute we reject a part of ourselves, we judge ourselves, and this keeps us from being kind, loving, and compassionate toward ourselves… and others.

Everything starts with our own selves. If we cannot accept ourselves fully, we won’t be able to accept another. If we cannot love ourselves for all that we are, we won’t be able to love someone that way also.

Acceptance is letting go and allowing. It is allowing our authentic self to shine. So let’s shine on and be our beautiful, authentic selves. Let’s make our own unique mark in this world.

Excerpt from the course
The moment you judge a part of yourself, you are dividing yourself into two. You are a whole. All these tricks you have learned about division have to be dropped. You have learned to divide yourself into the godly part and the devilish part, the good and the bad, the high and the low. Drop all divisions. That’s what acceptance means. Acceptance means there is no question of condemnation and whatever is the case, you accept it. Suddenly, there comes a transformation in your being.”

20140805-000954.jpgDay 16 – Relaxation Through Awareness

Thought for the day: As I release any tension in my body, my mind follows

Daily Quote:
We are given only one moment at a time, so to live rightly one needs only to know how to live rightly in the moment. One need not worry about the whole of life. If you can take care of the present moment you have taken care of your whole life; then everything will fall into line by itself.” ~Osho

Today’s message from Osho is about giving up control and letting go.

Giving up control (and allowing for the natural unfolding of things) and letting go are difficult! I know, I am still working on them! 😁

According to Osho, not feeling in control and not living in the present moment causes all the tension (i.e. from constant battle to feel safe and secure, from frantic preparation for the future, from stressing yourself out, etc.) in your body and in your life.

The only way to deal with tension and stress is to relax. To relax is to slow down. To slow down is to live in the present moment. To live in the present is to trust… Trusting that everything will unfold the way they are supposed to for the highest good of all.

I think today’s meditation is a message I needed to hear today. I needed this beautiful reminder.

Relax. Let go. Live in the present moment. Trust.

Excerpt from the course
Relax the circumference of your being – relax your body, relax your behavior, relax your acts. Walk in a relaxed way, eat in a relaxed way, talk, listen in a relaxed way. Slow down every process. Don’t be in a hurry and don’t be in haste. Move as if all eternity is available to you.”
