satisfaction

A Quote by Ayya Khema on ayya, khema, ayya khema, satisfaction, self satisfaction, content, contentment, and meditation

We could become quite satisfied with ourselves because we are sitting in meditation and are endeavoring to practice the spiritual path. Such satisfaction with ourselves is not the same as contentment. Contentment is necessary, self-satisfaction is detrimental. To be content has to include knowing we are in the right place at the right time to facilitate our own growth. But to be self-satisfied means that we no longer realize the need for growth. All these aspects are important parts of our commitment and make us into one whole being with a one-pointed direction.

A Quote by Robyn Griggs Lawrence on simple abundance, living modestly, satisfaction, and wabi-sabi

Wabi-sabi is not a decorating "style" but rather a mind-set. There's no list of rules; we can't hang crystals or move our beds and wait for peace to befall us.

A Quote by Abraham-Hicks on appreciation, let in, wanting, satisfaction, and more

You want appreciation. Even though you like what's happening now doesn't mean that you still don't want appreciation or greater stimulation. It just means you're not using something in your now as your excuse to not let in all those things that you've been wanting. The perfect creative stance is satisfaction where I am, and eagerness for more.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on happiness, god, and satisfaction

My Lord does not want to know what I have done for Him. He just wants to know how I am. If he hears from me that I am happy, then he himself becomes exceedingly happy. In umistakable terms He tells me that my happiness is His real and only Satisfaction.

A Quote by Darshni Dave on religion, education, and satisfaction

Any virtue that I have garnered is due to the teachings of my religion. Any fault that I retain is due to my own shortcomings. I find that what education and intelligent men haven't taught me, religion has, It has given me a threshold to live a completely fulfilled and satisfying life.
