The Secret of Contentment
It is said that if you knew who it is that walks with you in every moment, you would never again have to be afraid. The only reason why we fear is because we think we are not being taken cared of. But the truth of the matter is, we are not alone in this universe. This does not mean that we are accompanied by other people so we’re not alone, but what it means is that wherever we go, God is always walking with us. The secret of contentment is knowing the divine power that is taking care of you in every moment.
The divine power is taking care of us because we are not existing as separate entities in the universe. We are not apart from the universe but we are a part of the universe. The universe is taking care of itself all the time, and therefore when we place ourselves in its care, we will never experience any lack. How do we place ourselves in its care? We do so by trusting in the directions that it gives to us and to act upon them in every moment. We are not living our own lives, it is the universe that is living through us.
The universe is one gigantic being and we are all parts of the same being. The universe is living and expressing itself through all parts of itself. We were created as part of the universal work that is in operation. Therefore the work that we came to do is not our own but the work of the universe. Everything we need to experience a life full of joy, fulfillment and abundance is present when we walk the path that the universe has for us. It is only when we walk our own path that we experience lack, frustration and fear.
We might think that we are doing our own thing when we try to walk a different path that the universe wants us to walk. But we are not really doing what our true selves wants to do. It is because the universe is not something outside of us telling us what to do. The universe is us! The universe is your true self. You are bigger than you may realize. In the larger scheme of things, you are just a portion of the bigger you which is the universe, and you are here to do what the total you has purposed for you to do.
You and the universe are one, and when you know that, you will understand the true meaning of what it means to be in divine harmony with all that is. Everything you do has an effect on everything else that exists. There is never one thought or action of yours that is insignificant no matter how small it is. Think of your thoughts and actions as the thoughts and actions of the universe itself. Every single thought and action you make affects the whole universal you. You will never again think small about yourself.
The universe is unlimited and infinite. When you know that you are the universe, you will know that your true nature is unlimited and infinite. We only experience limitation and lack when we separate ourselves from ourselves. A branch that is cut off from the vine loses its source of supply and therefore it withers and dies. Since the universe is abundant and unlimited, all we have to do is to go with the flow and we will experience the joy of being provided in every moment and transcending limitations that we face.
The universe is always operating in perfection and harmony. When we align ourselves with it, we will experience the same perfection and harmony for ourselves. That is how living the perfect life is possible. It is an illusion that the world tries to pull over our eyes about what the perfect life is about and how it is supposed to look. The truth is thatthe perfect life for every individual is different and unique according to the special purpose and life path that the universe has for them. All they have to do is to go for it.
When you are connected with your true self, you know what is it you are being guided to do and you will be doing it. You will know that it is the best thing in the world for you to be doing in that moment and therefore you are perfectly satisfied about doing it. You are totally present to the moment and are truly living life in the now. You are following the spirit always. You are connected to the essence of who you really are which is the power and the presence of the creator that is expressing itself through you.
You never have to worry about whether you can be what you want to be, do what you want to do or have what you want to have. Because whatever that you are meant to be, do or have has already been chosen by the larger you as the universe for the smaller you that is living in this world. What you are meant to be, do and have is the best choice that you could ever experience because it is that which fully satisfies the innermost desires of your heart. Your deepest heart desires are also given by the universe.
Godliness with contentment is great gain. Those who know they have enough are truly wealthy. What you have and what you are getting now is enough. Where you are is perfect because it is exactly where you need to be. Perfection is not something that you have to wait for until one day when it comes. Perfection exist in every moment. It is because every step of the way is part of the process. The process does not exist without the steps. Every step is perfection itself and when you are in it, you are perfect.
The universe operates all things in such perfect precision and harmony that you will only be presented with a situation at the right time and when you are ready for it. Everything occurs as part of the universal plan. You will always be provided with the resources you need in the moment, not before or after. When you know the divine power that is always taking care of you, and have the awareness of all things happening in divine order and divine timing,you will be perfectly contented in every moment.
