“I do protest I never injured thee,
But love thee better than thou canst devise,
Till thou shalt know the reason of my love.
And so, good Capulet—which name I tender
As dearly as my own—be satisfied.”
– William Shakespeare


It seems like a struggle to just accept life exactly as it is – not try to fix something, improve something, get something new, get rid of something old or do something better.

Why is now never good enough? Why can’t we just accept things as they are? Completely and totally accept things.

Just sink into life, inhabit the horizontal not the vertical.

The desire for change, whatever change it is seems to ultimately translate to dollars. These days almost every desire has a price tag. Every change costs you in dollars and cents but also costs you your true freedom.

Be satisfied. Satisfied with just being.

What would happen if we all stop trying to sell things to others and just connected with others instead?

Just sink into life with all it’s blessing and discomforts…experience them all fully.

The desire for change or something new is the desire to move away from discomfort. Yet strangely, the movement away from pain keeps the focus on a state of dissatisfaction. The movement away from discomfort is actually a large part of the discomfort itself.

I want freedom from the desire for change, the desire to act, improve, to solve problems. Freedom to really listen to my heart and to deeply listen to others. 

If we stop trying to fill that void then we must face that void. A void that feels so empty and scary yet when you turn into it you realize that it actually contains all the happiness and fullness you were seeking through change and improvement.

Needing more even if it is the need for more lessons or insights is still needing which is the seed of discontent. Full release from needing is the true path to happiness.

Be satisfied, now is enough.
