Does being satisfied with life lead to stagnation?.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


“I am 39 years old and have a constant desire to do something or the other. 

I want to learn new things, meet people, join different groups, etc. 

I don’t know what I am searching for exactly.

I have been advised by friends to be happy and satisfied with what I have but I feel it is death.

My basic instinct is to learn and explore.

Remaining satisfied with what I have will rot me, it is stagnancy for me.

I am pro-growth at any age.

Most of the situations I come across I can handle.

It gives me mental satisfaction that I am not only doing my routines but also taking part in what the world is offering me at a given point in time.

I am enriching myself. 

But in doing so I have realized that the happiness of the past events doesn’t stay with me.

I am always looking for new things and new thrills. 

Do I need to look within? 

Do you think I should change something within myself?”


It’s a good thing to have a mindset that is always growing, learning, and exploring.

That is the nature of life. 

However, this new growth doesn’t necessarily lead to a sense of wisdom, compassion, and real happiness if there is not a stable, contented inner Self upon which it can build. 

If we feel empty and reject our present reality, then no amount of stimulus or searching will fill that hole. 

I think that is what your friends are pointing at. 

They don’t want you to stop growing and enriching yourself. 

They only want you to do it from a place where you feel good about yourself, and feel grateful for the blessings in your life. 

That feeling of gratitude and contentment doesn’t mean you feel complacent or stagnant—just the opposite. 

It provides the value and sense of direction for your desire to grow, learn, and improve your world.
