“A little consideration of what takes place around us every day would show us that a higher law than that of our will regulates events; that our painful labours are unnecessary and fruitless; that only in our easy, simple, spontaneous action are we strong... Place yourself in the middle of the stream of power and wisdom which animates all whom it floats, and you are without effort impelled to truth, to right, and a perfect contentment.”
~ Vernon Howard, (1918-1992) American spiritual teacher, author, philosopher, The Mystic Masters Speak!

My attitude has changed significantly when it comes to the subject of contentment. My love of science and philosophy has broadened my definition. Is a blade of grass content to be just a blade of grass? Is a bird content to be a bird? Are all living things in the universe content to be what they are? I would have to say yes. Even humans, though often not satisfied with their immediate situation, are quite content being human.

Great passage because it is very true if we would only stop to realize that which is right in front of us we would understand that we are far off the purpose of this journey.
