While away on a short trip, I kept thinking about “contentment”. Humans are constantly running and chasing after something throughout their life. It could be money, a better title, a bigger home, more travel, a life partner, etc. How does one reach a stage of being happy with what they have?
Would you be content if you didn’t know what more was out there? I hear from my folks about how people in the pre-internet era were more content and the only reason for that was that they didn’t have access to the information about what else was out there.
But would you be content if you were away from everyone, in a beautiful nature-filled, picturesque place and you were self-sufficient? (With no information getting to you from the outside world)
How do you think humans can be more content? Are you content with where you are and what you have?
