In a world that is governed mainly by materialism and capitalism, it seems as if there is never enough that a person can own. Even if a human being has already achieved so much of which mostly are material things, it seems that these things do not entirely satisfy his needs, but rather his wants. Such a characteristic that primarily describes more than half of the nation, it is therefore important to take action before people destroy one another for the sole benefit of becoming much richer, much more successful or much more beautiful.
These people have to realize that all of the possessions and pleasures in life are only temporary which they can never bring with them when they pass away. However, with a thing called spiritual satisfaction, a person can finally say that he does not want any worldly things to satisfy himself but more of a spiritual wealth.
And while attaining spiritual satisfaction is definitely difficult to reach, such a process is actually the same with people called hermits who choose to live in the mountains in pure solitude and peace. However, considering the world like ours, it is much more difficult nowadays to live like hermits especially that our lives are now basically dominated by materialism. It is then wise that a person does not take being a hermit literally, rather take it as a challenge in order for him to live in simplicity and satisfaction.
Basically, the first things that you have to do are to think with a divine intelligence and disregard the value of quantity. More often than not, people mistake quantity as the basis for richness and value. However, it is exactly the opposite of it.
Living At The Moment
The second thing that you can do is simply live at the moment. Many people are too concerned with their past or perhaps their future that they soon fail to realize that they are in fact living in the present. Thus, they ultimately forget the value of the things that they have today since they are totally blinded by things that have already happened or have not even occurred yet. In order to live with spiritual satisfaction, you need to live right now and right here without exceptions. Enjoy every moment that has been given to you and make sure that every second and every minute counts for something important. As long as you are aware of this need, then you can definitely develop into a much more satisfied individual.
Accepting That You Are Enough
The third and perhaps the most important part that you should know is that by being yourself, you are already enough. The act of belittling one's self or perhaps saying that he is not enough can totally hinder him from achieving spiritual satisfaction. As long as you see yourself not worthy, then you are limiting yourself to every possible thing that can come about to you. Remember that as long as you do not see your true image of yourself, then it only means that you are slowly getting farther from the one Creator who has made you from His likeness.
