The Truth About Fulfillment

Fulfillment. What does this really mean? And are you feeling fulfilled?

I believe fulfillment is far beyond anything normal. In fact, I think fulfillment is the hardest thing to actually achieve in life.

I’m going to be honest: many times I feel empty. And I think that other people do to.

I also believe that true fulfillment does not come from anything the material world has to offer. In fact, I believe that’s the problem with modern day society and the way children are being raised. People are parenting their children and the children are being advised through media outlets that fulfillment can be found in money, success, or other ideologies.

In fact, I believe this to be highly false.

I don’t think that one can find true fulfillment through chasing the world’s desires. I believe that fulfillment can only be found by connecting with one’s moral system or internal compass and continuing to make the decisions that keep them within these moral guidelines.

The more one stays aligned with the truth of who they are, the better their actions feel as the move along in life.

This is only a working theory.

I’ve found that, in my personal journey, the emptiness felt inside can not be filled by these external things.

It can be filled by creativity and by the creation of something new. At least for a period of time.

So if true life or internal joy can not be devised from material items, then how come everyone seems to be chasing those things?

Well, I believe it is because of the lie we have been told. The lie and the society ideology that if we achieve these things or we reach a certain point, then we will feel happy.

But what if that wasn’t true? What if we stopped chasing what we think will bring this idea of happiness? What if we began following the thing

I believe it is the opposite. I believe that if we take action on the things that feel good, then we will achieve what we desire in life.

Because what we desire is the feeling, not the outcome.

So with so many feeling unfulfilled, what can be done to create change around this epidemic? How can the feeling of fulfillment be experienced?

I don’t have the answers to these questions.

I think it’s something each individual has to figure out on their own. It’s something that I’ve been working on in myself a lot lately.

I think it comes with asking the question, what do I want to give my life to? What do I want my life to be an example of to others?

I believe that’s the greatest gift you can give to the world: yourself.

Much love,
