Santosa
 

The second of the five observances of the Yoga Sutra

In the second limb of eight of the Astanga path of yoga

Santosa… contentment with the moment that is

Or in other words, my surrender with my war with reality

This is not complacency with what is, but reverence

True contentment bubbles up from within

Never can it consistent from external sources

The amount of peace I have with life

Equals the amount of my contentment

No events are good, no events are bad, but all things

Are the opportunity for life to shine through us

Stillness… steady, firm, unyielding, unwavering

Heart open to love and to be loved

Life brings us the chance to walk in Santosa

To be still in perfect contentment

To be still inside

Allowing destiny to unfold before me

Walk in the perfect path of Santosa
