Sattva is not exhilaration or excitement. Rather it is that feeling of being content with everything just as it is right now. It can be a feeling of completeness, of tranquility of the mind. It is also out natural state of mind where we feel fulfilled. In this state we are aware, mindful, calm. There is no concern for what has been or what might be. We are simply at one with what “is” right now. We do what needs to be done, with no attachment to an outcome.
