HIGHLIGHTS OF LAST SUNDAY'S LESSON

 

Overheard on Sunday, June 11, 2017

Wrapping Up Contentment

 

I let my innate joy bubble forth to bless and harmonize.

Daily Word June 10, 2017

 

Dear Friends,

This Sunday morning, we completed our short series on Cultivating Contentment as a spiritual practice. Some would find the best way to cultivate contentment would be to stop coveting, having expectations or making comparisons. Others would find an attitude shift helpful – being optimistic or humble or rejoicing in another person’s happiness. Some would cultivate contentment through a classic practice such as meditation and contemplative prayer.

What science is now teaching us that we can reprogram our brain so that we more easily and quickly feel contented. Rick Hanson speaks of this in his book, Buddha’s Brain. He encourages practices that create new neural pathways in your brain, release dopamine and stimulate oxytocin to deepen your connection.

Three Easy Steps:

1.    Turn positive facts into positive experiences. Actively look for “good news.” Bring mindful awareness to whatever positive facts you find.

2.    Savor the experience. It’s delicious! Stay with it as long as you can. Make it last 5, 10, even 20 seconds. The longer we hold it in our awareness, the more neurons will fire together and wire together.

3.    Imagine or feel the experience entering deeply into your mind and body. Like the sun’s warmth on a T-shirt or water into a sponge. Keep relaxing your body and absorbing the emotions, sensations and thoughts of the experience.

 

Wrap yourself in contentment. Consider the “everyday” blessings of your life, pressed down, heaped up and overflowing, running over into your lap.

 

 

 

                                                                      Shalom,

                                                                                      Rev. Flossie Ernzen
