A Hidden Treasure

“To be satisfied with a little, is the greatest wisdom; and he that increaseth his riches, increaseth his cares; but a contented mind is a hidden treasure, and trouble findeth it not.” Akenatun 14th Century BC

Contentment is a state of being mentally and emotionally satisfied with things as they are. It is also assenting to or willing to accept a proposed course of action, etc…

Wait, I can hear many of you now … “I can’t, I won’t, accept this!”

Contentment is freedom in a hostile and dissent society. Allow me to explain.

There may be an incredibly difficult situation you have under gone or are currently weathering…whatever it may be, and no matter the level of severity, it is not a happy place. So one may ponder how they can be content with such dire circumstances. Be content with knowing things will change. It will not rain forever, and when the rain stops it may seem as if nothing will grow from this, yet one must know that the rain nourishes new flowers to grow in our garden. The garden of our heart ~   

 

The hardship may be a blessing when one allows it to be. Look at the situation. Really look and observe. What is the lesson that one may learn? How did our own drama contribute to things spiraling out of control?…and for those of you who are oppressed and had no hand in the oppression, know this: It is a Gift and a Blessing to be the one who is oppressed and to be saved from being the oppressor, for karma is their foe ~

 

What is it to be satisfied with a little? It means to not seek the world and chase after it and all its glitter and glory for it will run from its chaser. When one finds food, and shelter, and clothing, provided by The Everlasting, one is secure from worries for this is what we need. All else is a part of this world and when we chase it will run from us, causing anxiety, grief, confusion and heartbreak. When one finds the Self contented in matters of worldly living, the gate opens for blessings to flow through ~  

 

We allow not the raging waters into our ships for it shall only sink us to the bottom of a dark, cold ocean. The ship our hearts, the raging water, this worldly life. The ocean floor, heartbreak and grief.

Let Us Heal within our hardships so when the Sun shines again we will know the true blessing of feeling its warmth on our rain stricken face

Let Us Build ~ 
What is it that you seek? We so long for happiness and inner peace, yet what I see is everyone seeking a material possession, a relationship possession, and even for themselves to be possessed. Is no one seeking happiness and inner peace anymore?
For those who are this is for you ~
Plant a tree in your heart and a bird may come there to sing ~
Nurture your own heart, love yourself, no Truly Lo\/E yourSelf. Not the arrogant masked as confidence type of love yourself, yet the true, Divinely right  form of appreciating the Supreme Creator’s creation which is you ~ We must go beyond the limitation of our chains ~ Cultivate compassion and forgiveness with yourself, acknowledge your faults and wrong doings and Know that you are capable of higher achievement. Know that you Can attain that which you desire through actions of perpetual good. 
Wake up determined to achieve your goal and resolve your conviction every night before sleep ~ 
Remain on your spiritual path to the attainment of enlightenment, to the achievement of higher aims, and to the cultivating the cosmic force within our vessels ~
Our vessels are our bodies which contain our souls. Our souls will travel to the next realm of being, to a dimension of space and time we see not  ~ They will carry us through our journey and therefore it is imperative to comprehend that if the vessel, the body, is in a poor state of being, poor health, then one’s soul will not be able to fulfill one’s highest potential ~
And we shall continue our Build ~

We are more than our skin,

And the texture of our hair

We are more than brawn booties bound bare ~

The depredation of our ancestral skin 

Does not confine us to perpetual sin ~
