    Hello bert, in other words it seems that your answer is “No”? . . . . . or do you mean that through the Earthly experience, and through complete non-attachment to all facets of the Earthly experience, one can achieve the contentment described?

    • bert says:

      I think the answer is YES, we shouldn’t look for some ultimate thing to arrive or wait for enlightenment or beatification, in a nirvana, next life or afterlife. Contentment has to be here and now, and that implies, yes, also here on earth at this moment. From this perspective, everything is perfect since there is only one absolute reality remaining.
      Regarless, a very long way to go for me … 🙂

    If you cannot find contentment on earth, you will not find it anywhere. If you cannot find contentment within yourself then there will never be contentment at all.

      Thanks for both, bert and. as for it being a long way yet for you remember that when we look ahead at a goal it seems far away, yet when we look back at a goal achieved it seems like only yesterday 😉

Well, what do you say?
