Satisfaction on the Spot

January 7, 2011

Realizing that you don't need any fresh, new, extraordinary things to entertain you, you can be there on the spot and celebrate what you have. You don't need new objects of appreciation. To witness and experience what you have is good enough. In fact, it's wonderful. It's already a handful, so you don't need anything extra. When you are not searching for a substitute or a better alternative to what you have, you feel quite satisfied. Satisfaction is appreciating ourselves and what we have already, naturally speaking. It is respecting the sacredness and the beauty of the world.

From "Sacredness: Natural Law and Order," in Great Eastern Sun: The Wisdom of Shambhala
