Sutra 2.42 Santoshad Annuttamah Sukkha Labhah.
(Through contentment, supreme joy is obtained)
The second Niyama is Santosha … or contentment. In looking at Santosha, we tend to look outward for fulfillment, which will always disappoint us and keep contentment just out of our reach. Let us not look across the street and see what we don’t have but look at where we are and what we do have. What a huge gift to give yourself when you can look around and be nothing but thankful … for the good and the not so good. Living in Santosha is living in your heart, not your ego.
This week practice gratitude and nonseeking and notice and question when you feel that you’re looking elsewhere for fulfillment.
