Ultimate Fulfillment 4

by Christopher Lovejoy on May 4, 2014

“Why am I here?” To learn. “What is my purpose?” To love.

The soul who received these responses to these questions on The Other Side is content with these answers. I am not. Not for a minute, not even for a second. In other words, not at all content.

Interestingly, this same soul did not (at all) want to come back to body after this soul’s encounter with what this soul perceived as God, which word (God) seemed to this soul much too limited and inadequate to express the immensity and intensity of what this soul experienced.

Aside: I am not using gender, as all sense of gender is dropped when a soul goes out of body, and by body, I mean the vibrationally densest body of which souls are capable of occupying

Why am I here, on this planet, in this dense manifest realm?

Suppose I am here to learn. Myself, I love to learn – a lot – which begs two fundamental questions: to learn what? And why?

What is the purpose of my life, here in this dense manifest realm?

Suppose I am here to love. This is my purpose in life, begging these questions: basically, essentially, and ideally, what is love? Am I here to love for love’s sake or am I here to love for some other purpose?

Other questions go begging, which I’ve already posed:

  • what is true love? (what is false love?)
  • what is the quality of my love?
  • is true love the only thing that matters?

At this point, and with these basic and essential questions in mind, I am called to review the material on this page and highlight those points that beckon to be highlighted (in yellow) as I go along.

I invite you to join me in this inquiry, viewing the results on this page.

Before you do, I recommend that you go to calm.com and make Soothe your first choice. Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds for as long as you feel it necessary to open your heart to love.

Enjoy the soothing, and if needs be, let the tears flow.

More content has been added to the sections below, including a section called Commentary, which explores a simple yet provocative question: why is humanity failing to fulfill its true potential?






(Setting the context)




(A cosmic perspective)

Current study: the cosmic life review (learn more)

View this page to explore some basic issues




The ethical imperative: guard guide your eyes, guard guide your thoughts, guard guide your steps

What the cosmic life review indicates we do in the earthly realm: (1) sanctify; (2) purify; (3) justify

Does “what does it take to be fulfilled?” = “what does it take to be sanctified, purified, justified?”?




Proposal: our prime directive as a species is finding the balance

  • finding the balance between soul (being) and spirit (becoming)
  • finding the balance between being perfectly full and becoming perfectly filled
  • finding the balance between living soulfully (truly, deeply) and living spiritually (wisely, freely)




(A context for living life to the fullest)

proposal to universalize human need:

need 1: “a safe place to eat and sleep”
need 2: “a way to satisfy all my needs”
need 3: “someone to love and cherish”
need 4: “a healthy, vital outlook on life”

a vital distinction to observe in daily life:
satisfaction of need v. fulfillment of desire




(A practice for living life to the fullest)




(a global perspective: why is humanity failing to fulfill its true potential?)

exposing the causes and consequences of two widespread (and related) social phenomena: cynical detachment and egocentric entitlement

the story of Howard Storm: how a visit to The Other Side cured his soul and spirit of cynical detachment and egocentric entitlement, transmuting his contempt for humanity into compassion and compersion




1. “I just can’t stand it anymore … why go on?”

2. “Wrong body, wrong family, wrong planet … why?”

3. “Why am I making such a mess of my life?”

4. “What does it really take to be (become) fulfilled in this life?”

5. Soul: “a sound approach to being perfect: possible?”

6. Spirit: “a sane approach to becoming perfect: desirable?”


Study Notes


  • incorporate the use of symbols with these elements: sphere (soul), spiral (spirit), pyramid
  • presence and pretense: best to view them as complementary, rather than as mutually exclusive?
  • follow these elements of perspective: form, structure, substance, orientation, appearance
  • the devil challenge (problem, difficulty, obstacle, inadequacy, struggle, conflict) is in the details
  • the privileged among us: a little too preoccupied with celebrity, technology, personality, positivity?
  • extroverts and introverts: “living on the surface” and “living from the depths with presence”
  • the cosmic life review: a representation of the ultimate in personal fulfillment for a life lived?
