Contentment comes from an inner serenity that permeates the whole person. The ancestors spoke of the stat of grace and called it walking in beauty. When people are at peace with the world the inner peace that they carry shines , allowing all who see them to recognize their contentment.
In the modern world where accumulated material things things seem to be the standard for contentment, we often see that material success doesn’t bring serenity. Many people discover that vanity is not beauty, jewelry does not indicate a person’s worth. . . Contentment comes from being at peace with the Self and with all life, honoring one’s connecting the whole without judgments.
