Cultivate the Art of Contentment
Our consumer society feeds on fears of scarcity and feelings of desire, telling us that more is never enough. Wake up from the trance of scarcity thinking to the abundance hidden in the every day. Every moment offers a wonderful opportunity to see God in the details, and you can begin right here and now.
Living lessons of abundance hide in the heart of a lovely rose. Bugs and bees and butterflies busy themselves in nature’s glorious creation. The stars remind you of the vastness of the universe. Find contentment in the simple things in life: sunsets, delicious food, loving friends and family, beautiful flowers, and peaceful pleasures.
We live in and ascending scale when we live happily; one thing leading to another in an endless series.

-List twenty-five things you are grateful for today, such as: a bed to sleep in, good work to do, a friendly smile, a rose on your desk, etc.
It’s important to take care of yourself. Yet if you’re like most people, you probably put yourself last on the “to do” list. Taking time out to relax, refresh, and de-stress is an important part of nurturing your soul. If you’re exhausted and frazzled, you won’t do anybody any good, including yourself.
Take time for a warm, soothing herbal bath. Get a massage. Take a nap. Take a full day off—sleep in, read, putter, relax. Put work aside, save the chores till later, and go out for a walk. Pamper yourself and it will pay dividends of energy and renewed perspective.
The good life is not only good for one’s conscience; it is good for art, good for knowledge, good for health, good for fellowship.
Set aside a full day off as a Sabbath for your soul. Rest, meditate, relax, get away—do whatever you want to do.
