Walking the Tao – Chapter 7

The concept of “contentment” is tragically misunderstood in our culture. We believe the lie that we must be discontent in order to do creative useful things. But contentment is not some future goal, achieved when the right job, family, house, etc. are achieved. It is a fundamental quality of human life. It is the basis, rather than the result, of all creative achievement. To be content in the present moment is to be open to infinite possibilities, synchronous events, and marvelous surprises.
