As I’ve said many times before my favorite book of all time is Illusions by Richard Bach.

The foreword for the book tells the story of a Messiah preaching to a crowd and the audience becoming so inspired that they swear, en masse, to do anything — ANYTHING — to serve God.

To which the Messiah asks: what if God’s one and only commandment was that you be happy for the rest of your life?

In other words, what if your purpose were ultimately to quit-yer-bellyachin’ and just ENJOY LIFE?

To Hindus, being content is a not an ideal — it’s a sacred commandment.

SANTOSHA literally means “thou shalt be content.”

Today let’s explore ways of being content and accepting this challenge to “be content” as a sacred admonition.

Remember to post your questions and comments — I respond to them all personally.

BTW, you’ve probably noticed that I don’t accept outside advertising — that’s because cool people like you share these messages with coworkers, friends, and family who will often hire me for speeches, and/or purchase my books, Complaint FreeⓇ bracelets, and online programs.

So if this post inspired you, touched your heart, or expanded your mind, please do everyone a favor and share it with at least one other person whom you think would like it as well.
