The 2nd niyama: Santosha/contentment
Contentment is the gravity of waking up, and also, the levity of lifes' hilarity, and also, the clarity of what’s important, and also, the connection to spirit…..all at the same time. Simplified, I would describe contentment as; the integration of gratitude, awareness, levity, clarity, and connection.
Contentment is the ability to fill the moment with quality content. When the contents of our moments adds up to a day, a week, a month, a year, a lifetime, and we are consciously participating in meaningful conversation, enlightening books, artistic expression, integrated movement, healthy food, and sincere intention, then we will have lived a life of quality content. This will inevitably equal contentment. When more moments are of this essence, than not, we will have lived a life of contentment.
