“We are what we make of our circumstances.” ~ Cloé Madanes
What is it that I desire?
If my deepest desire is for completeness – to be whole; how does this deepest desire align with anything else that I might want knowing that all desires will be connected to my thirst for wholeness?
If I want an Audi R8 Coupe – what would this car give me? And if I was fully and completely experiencing what this new car would give me, what else might I want that is even more important for me to experience now?
In other words, everything I do, absolutely everything, is always connected to a deeper need within me. Therefore I need to listen. I need to listen to my life’s story and hear the still small voice, who was, and is, always present in every chapter of my life. And I would be wise to heed this voice, because this voice, it knows the song of life and how to live life well.
What if my great forgetting is the sin of believing that I am not whole – not enough today, tomorrow and the next?
And if I am whole, just as I am with all my cuts and bruises; doubts and fears; what is it that I am truly searching for?
Do I really need anything else than to know that I am whole – that I am loved fully and completely for who I am today?
Perhaps this is where the mystery of contentment dwells. Contentment abides in the heart and soul of every person. And you and I, we just need to uncover it.
Here rests the simple beauty of living and living life well: “I am enough.”
Maybe this is the root of all our problems, a believing that we are not whole; and therefore, not enough; and therefore, not loved.
