Finding Self Fulfillment

Aug 17, 2007
Fulfillment: meaning accomplishment, achievement, realization, or completion. The word implies an ending of sorts, and therefore the implication that one "finds fulfillment" is inaccurate at best.

Fulfillment comes from a sense of "being," not from an ending. There are 3 important elements (that can be taken in steps) to live a life of fulfillment:

1) Want Fearlessly

2) Act Courageously

3) Be willing

Desiring to know your life purpose is important; it's a good first step or awareness to think, "I want to know why I was born." However, desire alone isn't enough. Desire, tends to come from an awareness of the opposing experiences in our life. Therefore, desire is focused on the negative, not on the positive.

For example, when a person moves to a foreign country, the desire for learning the language, comes from the awareness that, "I don't want to be misunderstood or frustrated."

The desire does NOT arrive from a "love" of the language alone. Instead the desire originates from a realization of what we don't want: communication frustration.

Therefore, when most of us say, "I want to live my life purpose," we are generally more focused on the feelings and thoughts such as, "This job is a dead end; I feel like I'm floundering; I don't know what I want to do; I feel dispassionate, lethargic, undirected, disorganized, unfulfilled etc."

As long as we are more focused on what we don't want, instead of what we do want, fulfillment will always be one step ahead of us. Once we recognize that we're in a place of desire, it's essential to take the next step and WANT that desire fearlessly.

By wanting something fearlessly, we begin moving the desire into the positive realm where we will be more receptive to guidance.

Divine guidance will come forth, and we will be inspired to take the right actions to fulfill our desire, but we must be in the "positive vibrational" quadrant in order to receive it.

Courage, according to Dr. David Hawkins' work in Power Vs. Force, is the first positive emotion, and begins at a calibration of 200 (which is in the positive vibrational quadrant.)

Therefore, the first action step will always be to take action courageously. By just saying the words, "I am courageous! I am bold!" you are beginning to vibrate with the positive energy that attracts positive experiences.

The positive feelings of fulfillment will begin right where you are. You do not have to change jobs, change mates, change your geographic demographics to find fulfillment, but instead evolve your mental attitude from "I want to know my life purpose," to "I fearlessly want to know my life purpose," to "I am courageously pursuing my life purpose." Then, proceed to a willingness to be fulfilled.

This means, being fulfilled exactly where you are, beginning now. Willingness will transform your current situation, but you have to be willing - to be willing.

Six months before he was assassinated, Martin Luther King Jr. spoke to a group of students at Barratt Junior High School in Philadelphia on October 26, 1967. The following excerpt speaks clearly the message I'd like you to hear.

"And when you discover what you will be in your life, set out to do it as if God Almighty called you at this particular moment in history to do it. Don't just set out to do a good job. Set out to do such a good job that the living, the dead or the unborn couldn't do it any better.

If it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures, sweep streets like Beethoven composed music, sweep streets like Leontyne Price sings before the Metropolitan Opera. Sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry. Sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will have to pause and say: Here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well. If you can't be a pine at the top of the hill, be a shrub in the valley. Be the best little shrub on the side of the hill."

When I propose to some clients that they choose to be fulfilled right where they are, I've noticed that it brings up the feeling of fear. They are afraid that feeling fulfilled right now, will keep their "perceived negative" experience with them. They falsely believe that "disliking" the situation protects them from complacency. It does not. Disliking a situation actually holds that situation in your experience.

Being fulfilled now, will attract fulfillment in the way of your life's work, your life's path, and the reason you were born. What you are learning now - is already part of your life's path. Be grateful for it, and more things will be added to your life to be grateful for. So Want Fearlessly, Act Courageously, and Be Willing. This will put you in the right place mentally, to be inspired spiritually, to act physically.
