Weekly Inspiration: Contentment


After a visit to the countryside over the weekend, it's hard to believe we live in a material world. When you experience the simplicity and beauty of nature, you wonder why you need all the stuff you've accumulated over the years, and why you would want even more.

Materialism and greed are associated with the Devil in Tarot, and they go hand in hand with limitations and dependency.

"Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need." - From the movie Fight Club, based on the novel by Chuck Palahniuk

Isn't it time to let go? The recent economic crises may be a blessing in disguise. Now we have a great excuse to say "I can't afford that" and start spending our money wisely rather than freely.

"You have succeeded in life when all you really want is only what you really need." - Vernon Howard

Living a more spiritual life is saying good-bye to excessive consumerism, and instead enjoying the simple pleasures in life, shifting our focus and energy from "acquiring" to "creating" and just "being".

"To the right, books; to the left, a tea-cup. In front of me, the fireplace; behind me, the post. There is no greater happiness than this."  - Teiga 

What are you doing this week to feel more content? How much does your happiness rely on acquiring things that you may want but not necessarily need? How could you utilise your energy and resources in a more sustainable and fulfilling way?

Check out my quick and easy Nine of Cups contentment meditation.

  2. This is so, so true. I was recently in Mexico and enjoyed the simplicity of the ocean, the sun, bare feet, no makeup. Life is easy and joyful when you get rid of all that extra stuff.
