Contentment: The Battle For Synchronicity

20120726-171634.jpg

Emotional contentment can only come about when your your Inner World and your Outer World are in synchronicity with each other. You can meditate or pray all you want. You can go to church, sign up for yoga classes, or Pilates. You can get massages, mani/pedis, plastic surgery … and on and on. These things are only temporary, topical treatments … contentment substitutes.

The first step to this process is finding contentment within … I have found that such contentment will come from connecting to God on that inner landscape of your soul. We each are unique and so this Divine connection that you have with God is yours and yours alone to discover. A relationship with God is exactly that … a relationship. Do you know any two relationships that are exactly the same? I don’t. So explore, open yourself, get to know God in a way that you never dreamed of and makes you vulnerable … a place that will really show you just how MUCH God actually DOES love you.

It may only be five minutes a day, to start … so you start with that and grow it from there. The easiest way to achieve this is through meditation or some form of prayer. Eventually, if you are diligent in achieving this state of contentment, you will find that you begin to be content wherever you are. This is where the battle for synchronicity takes place..

Whatever relationships you have that don’t fit with your new state of contentment … will immediately make themselves known. Either because of the routine that has been established, or because there is jealousy that you have somehow found contentment and left them behind … you didn’t share it with them. What they fail to realize is that contentment is up to each person to find … a person’s exact path to contentment is specific to them. The relationship either gets worked out through honest communication … or it must end … or you have to give up and go back to who you used to be. Contentment is addictive in its own right though … going back may not be an option!

Other aspects of your life will begin to wage war against you as well. If you have addiction problems, of any sort (food, alcohol, drugs, sex, emotional dependency, etc.), they will constantly clash with your newfound state of contentment. Each one requiring you to either sacrifice or … change.

This is not about religious dogma, or zealotry. We are all unique creations … as such, we each need to find what works for us in our own personal relationship with God. If we truly want to achieve contentment, then we must synchronize our outer world with our inner state of content.

This is no easy task. Do not get discouraged. It will not happen overnight … it takes time to change your ingrained habits. Just keep going back to that inner state of contentment … if you have the desire, and maintain your commitment to an open-hearted connection with God, in time you will achieve the synchronicity that is true contentment … in both your Inner and Outer Worlds.

Be strong … Peace and Love.

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
