The Contentment Dividend: Meditations for Realizing Your True Self
You have the power within you to liberate your soul from the mind’s dominance and achieve reunion with God. The forty-nine intuited meditations of The Contentment Dividend take you on a journey of discovery toward realizing your true spiritual self, understanding the immortal truths of existence, and focusing your mind and life to achieve contentment. The meditations are sourced in the author’s many decades-long study and practice of the teachings of realized Masters and true Saints. These are the fully God-realized humans who come to awaken us to our unlimited spiritual potential. By engaging with the meditations, you will access the wisdom of your higher mind and undergo a revolution in how you navigate life’s challenges.
Goddart (author of A New Now) delivers an impassioned plea urging readers to meditate on various issues and troubles to connect with their true spiritual selves and achieve daily contentment. Goddart declares, “You have the power within you to liberate your soul from the mind’s dominance and achieve reunion with God.” To that end, The Contentment Dividend presents 49 bite-sized explorations of issues, emotional states, prejudices, fears, and inevitabilities, and offers new ways of approaching them or applying them to our life to bring out a sense of control, grounding, and spiritual awakening. The first meditation sets the tone, centered on the “Inescapable Unknown” of our life and death, and how this uncertainty fuels anxiety. In the face of that, Goddart contends that to accept the unknown we should embrace life as it is now, be present, detach mentally, and strip away everything from our life and commune with our true self.

The meditations are based on spiritual teachings that Goddart argues can help us navigate life’s challenges, access the wisdom of our higher mind, and evolve spiritually. A meditation on the topic of “Unsparing Kindness” involves letting go of our ego to understand the ways others suffer so we can offer unsparing kindness and return to our state as a divine spark of God’s love, known as the LoveSource; one dedicated to the “Illusion of Success” suggests that earthly achievements are as fleeting as our past lives—and that true success involves the soul becoming LoveSource.

Throughout, Goddart makes the case in clear, inviting prose that we need to become attached to something higher within ourselves and pursue spiritual purpose. With many, varied meditations on everyday life and situations, the book will prove a valuable compendium of thought-provoking and spiritual reflections for readers who strive to better themselves through meditation and spiritual growth.

Takeaway: Meditations to discover one’s spiritual self and achieve spiritual evolution.
