Santosha means contentment.  It is a niyama within Patanjali's 8 limbs of yoga (see the November 3, 2011 "8 Limbs of Yoga" outline).  Lately I have experienced contentment.  There will be future opportunities to work with discontentment.  I know that.  Right now I treasure the experience of leaning back into life. From this place of relative inner-rest I can feel compassion for others.  We all struggle with dissatisfaction and ultimately it is our own to sort out, look at, grow from.  Of course there are tools and people who can teach and lead.  And, it is empowering to act on your own behalf.
