The art of developing the virtue of contentment

English translation of my published Gujarati article in the paper, Gujarati article link: સંતોષનો ગુણ વિકસાવવાની કળા

We know the power of positivity, but how we should utilize it in our life is the biggest puzzle. As every puzzle has a solution, have tried to establish a solution, hope this solution can help!

I am not talking about anything you should focus on for positive energy. Positive energy is all about just “YOU”. You are the source of positive energy but mostly we are unaware of it.

We have some set pattern in the mind about situations. When situations are in our favour we are the “happiest bird”, and if it doesn’t then we are the “sad bird”. Our happiness depends on the so-called situations and when the situations are not as per our choice we suffer in the dissatisfaction state in life.

The ultimate way to be energetic is to be detached from situations. This is the theory which you should apply practically. Train your mind to implement new thought. This is the secret to happiness and satisfaction in ourselves. It is also a path towards spiritual thinking.

Have gratitude in your existence, feel contentment in your situations. Have faith in God, feel blessings from God, accept life as it is, treat life as a gift. Whatever your Guru or the God has written for you, it is good for you. It is the truth in a world. Trust in him.

By adopting this philosophy, you can develop the virtue of satisfaction. Through this, your mind spread this positivity in whole your existence (personality). This becomes your energy. So, you become the source of positive energy for yourself.

You are the source of positivity and negativity as well. How is it? We will understand by two circles: The satisfaction circle and the dissatisfaction circle.

Circle 1: The satisfaction circle

Satisfaction Chart

The satisfaction circle start with the satisfaction that represents when you are in satisfaction mode, you feel positivity that converts into positive energy. Positive energy leads to happiness and peace. That is your positive power which you created on your own.

Circle 2: The dissatisfaction circle

Dissatisfaction Chart

The dissatisfaction circle start with the dissatisfaction that represents when you are in dissatisfaction mode, you feel negativity that converts into negative energy. Negative energy leads to hatred and frustration. That is your negative power which you created on your own.

Hence, we have already energy power in ourselves. You should choose which energy power you want. It is definite that all want positive energy power which shows in circle 1 but mostly we are unaware to get it so we become the victim of circle 2.

Human beings have all the power which we want. But we must realize it by focusing on our self and find our energy.  If we get it, we can achieve everything we want. It is up to us how much we desire in life.

Satisfaction mode gives you more productivity in life. Your personality becomes cheerful and whatever your role is, whatever your tasks are, you will perform better and get the best results. Even if some situations are tough, you will able to deal with calmness. But earlier when you followed the dissatisfaction circle, you could not have achieved this much result when you get this time by following the satisfaction circle. Just try it, it works for sure.

The tough situation that bothers you, if it is in your control, try to search for solutions to overcome it instead of getting stuck over there. A situation that is beyond your control gives you a mental burden. do not try to control a situation or people in this instance, it will convert into a mess. To avoid the mental burden, you can adopt this philosophy and become a free bird. Why focus on the mental burden? It creates negativity in us. When we stop “could be” and “would be” and accept what is in the present gives us immense pleasure.

Live in a present and have contentment for your being and feel a positive energy. Live life fullest.

The choice is yours:
Journey towards satisfaction and feel positive power 
Journey towards dissatisfaction and feel negative power
