    It really depends on what we are talking about. To be content with what we have in the moment is I think what you mean, but to not be content and not want change, which is life itself, is important for growth. There are people who bemoan the fact of change in our society, but to leave some things as they are is death itself, like the attitude of racial diversity. We do want something more, something better and different there! We do want science to continue to seek something more, something better and different, especially when we are talking about the pandemic, or climate change.
    Our wood flooring has been losing it’s finish for 2 years, but because of the pandemic we have not been able to replace it. Maybe this summer we can. We are looking to do it in the summer because of open windows and such. That is indeed something more, better, and hopefully different.
    In alot of areas of life, I think you stop growing when you stop seeking.

    There exists a term in the Algonquin language, one or another variation of “wetigo” which describes a sort of cannibalistic spirit that possesses an individual, not in the literal flesh eating sense but rather the idea of consuming others – human and material – as a means to acquire personal security and wealth. The idea of wetigo became particularly relevant as the First Nations came up against the insatiable appetites of European settlers to conquer and control. This mental virus or parasitic meme is very real and still active in modern populations of people referred to as “consumers”.

    When I stop seeking something more, better, or different when it comes to material goods, I find myself free from unnecessary clutter.

    Breathing out. A stand still of inner movement and embracing in gratitude what is.

    Contentment, equanimity, happiness.

    Thanks for the question; I was sliding into FOMO despondency, what happens when I focus on the what isn’t instead of the what is.

    The direct experience of “what is”. All of it. The folly of more, better or different becomes apparent.

    I love this question. As Americans, we are taught to always strive for more. It is refreshing to think about not doing that, and instead, just be in the moment, with gratitude.

    My mind tells me that I’ll become complacent. But that’s not really what happens…..rather feeling grateful, content, happy… you stop comparing yourself to others.

    The serenity prayer comes to mind with this question, because “what happens” depends on the circumstance.I try to stop seeking something more from the past, from others (in most circumstances), even from myself in some circumstances. It is an important virtue to be able to let go and accept.But there are other matters when I think it important not to stop seeking something more, better, or different. I hope I never stop seeking equality and food justice for all people, for instance. I expect something more of our government leaders. I seek patterns in society that will not create climate change or destroy our natural resources. I seek to better myself with more love and compassion for others, more patience for some. I don’t think I should stop seeking these things. Too many people give up expecting something more.
