Contentment is when we tell the Shepherd that His presence is sufficient for all our emotional needs. We seek solutions for our emptiness in many directions, all of them lacking. But those who go deep with Jesus discover He is always better. The greater our intimacy, the greater our contentment.
Mindfulness includes letting go of the tendency to want things to be a certain way or to judge how you’re doing. If it is going to make a difference, this thought process must go beyond meditation and into in everyday experience.
