I know that these questions still linger in many people’s minds; they want to know how one can live a life of satisfaction in today’s world. I will approach my answer to the question of how do we find satisfaction in life, in an uncommon or from a different approach. This is because living a life of satisfaction is an important lesson worth learning and being honest about without any sugarcoating.
Amazingly enough, we live our best life when our lives reflect love, joy, peace, patience, faithfulness, and long-suffering. And lo and behold, these are not qualities or attributes gain of wealth and money. These are the life of a person who is yielded to the law and the principles of living a spiritual life. So, with the blessing of success, and a life of purpose, satisfaction can be achieved or experienced in this context.
Finding satisfaction is possible when we follow the rules, which are embedded in the Golden Rules.
Unfortunately, many are diligently pursuing the issue of money, and wealth, with the hope that the much money or material possession they have the more satisfaction they will derive.
So far, experiences and research studies have shown that to be a false assumption. And that is why wise King Solomon, after investigating how much pleasure, satisfaction one can drive from riches, and money concluded at the end that all is vanity and vexation of the soul. https://markmanson.net/why-you-fail
Living a Satisfied Life Draws People
Do you know that when a person is truly reflecting the positive qualities, when we reflect joy, peace, love, patience, kindness, goodness, and such greenness in our souls, it draws people to us? Because these are qualities that benefit others. I just read today a speech by Pope Francisco. I will share this beautiful message here for us, maybe it can bring healing, restoration, or bless someone.
Pope’s Message to the Family
Contains the Golden Rules, of “Forgiving others of their offenses if we want ours to be forgiven.
“There is no perfect family. We do not have perfect parents; you are not perfect yourself.
We do not marry a perfect person or we do not have perfect children. We have complaints from each other. We cannot live together without offending one another.
We are constantly disappointed. Yes, for so many reasons at different times we are disappointed by one another.
There is no healthy marriage or healthy family without the exercise of forgiveness. Forgiveness is the medicine of family joy and happiness.
Forgiveness is vital to our emotional health and spiritual survival. No matter the offense or who is the offender. Without forgiveness, the family becomes an arena of conflict and a fortress of evil.
Without forgiveness, the family becomes sick and unhealthy. He went on to describe forgiveness as asepsis of the soul, the purification of the spirit, and the liberation of the heart. No sin is too big to be forgiven.
He who does not forgive does not have peace in his soul and cannot have communion with God.
Unforgiving is Evil and a poison that intoxicates and kills the one who refuses to forgive.
Keeping heartache of unforgiving in your heart is a self-destructive gesture. It’s autophagy.
Those who do not forgive are physically, emotionally, and spiritually ill. And they will suffer in two ways.
For this reason, the family must be a place of life and not a place of death; a place of forgiveness,
A place of paradise and not a place of hell; A healing territory and not a disease; an internship of forgiveness and not guilt.
Forgiveness brings joy where sorrow has brought sadness
Of Healing where sorrow has caused the disease.
A family is a place of support and not of gossip and slander of one another. It must be a place of welcome not a place of rejection. Shame to those who plant evil about others. We are family and not enemies.
When anyone is going through a challenge all they need is support.”
I have to share the complete message for a better understand and reflation.
You see why living a life of satisfaction eludes many people. An unhealthy mind can’t know satisfaction. Today, we see so much animosity, hostility within and without. Nation ions are not forgiving one another, states, cities, religious groups, political groups, families, there is unforgiveness, some generational! How then do we find satisfaction?
Certainly, we can only find satisfaction, a life of peace and fulfillment by having a healthy mind, free from fear and worry, hate, and unforgiveness, and by practicing the golden rules thought by Jesus and other founders of different faiths.
Unless, we change our ways, to embrace the mind of peace, love, joy, and all the qualities that a healthy mind signifies, it will be difficult to experience a satisfying life. How do we find satisfaction? How to Have a Better Life
Notwithstanding all the differing views, I strongly that when we develop the habit of self-control, it leads us to gain balance in our lives. And it is in the process that we can use to integrate other qualities fully.
