“The experience of being yourself is innately satisfying. If who you really are does not give you the experience of health, happiness, love and full self-expression – or “aliveness” – then that is not who you really are. When you experience yourself as yourself, that experience is innately satisfying. The experience of the self as the self is the experience of satisfaction.
Satisfaction is not “out there”. It cannot be brought in. You will never get satisfied. It cannot be done. When you want more and different or better, that is gratification, and while that is gratifying, we always want even more or even better. Satisfaction is completion, being complete – what has been called “the peace that passeth all understanding”. It is a condition of well-being – a sense of wholeness and of being complete right now – a context of certainty that right now is completely all right as right now and that the next moment will similarly be, fully itself. Not a judgment of good or bad, right or wrong, just what is.”
