Is it because we forgot the word 'Contentment'??


  • There is so much people have to say, about everything under the sun. Why?
  • There is so much people want to know about everything under the sun. Why?
  • There is so much people want to do at all times whether they have the potential or not. Why?
  • There is so much money people want to make and consequently spend too. Why?
  • There is so much fame people are after and struggle to keep up. Why?
  • There is so much of highs as much as lows in one’s mind. Why?
Is it normal?? Was the world like this before? I agree about the evolution, intelligence and the need for making more and more of everything, but so also we must be aware that too much of anything is good for nothing!

There have been constructive stupendous advancements in science and technology, engineering and medicine, spending power and buying power, earning and investments - No doubt.

So also, there is a lot of stress over having all of the best things including the natives and often neglected peace of mind, happiness and satisfaction. It does not always happen. Why??
  • Is it because we are aiming too high?
  • Is it because we are depleting in our energy and enthusiasm levels?
  • Is it because we are dependent too much on materialistic things for happiness?
  • Is it because we are moving away from spirituality?
  • Is it because we do not understand life’s miracles as much as we understand the science in it?
  • Is it because we want to understand everything to believe it??
  • Is it because we no longer can differentiate needs from wants?
  • Is it because we are conditioned to be judgmental and resistant than being open-minded and accepting?
  • Is it because we forgot our original self?
  • Is it because we never really accepted that we are unique and need not be like someone else?
  • Is it because we want to feel accomplished all the time?
  • Is it because we are over confident about our abilities?
  • Is it because of our ego?
  • Is it because of peer pressure?
  • Is it because we have no idea how to live?
  • Is it because we no longer understand the real meaning of happiness, love, peace, and satisfaction?
  • Is it because we forgot the word called Contentment??
Somewhere, I read : Always be content with what you have, never with what you are!!!

Fear

With new opportunities also comes to fear and self-doubt. How can we navigate these very strong forces in order to reach our fulfillment...
