Ultimate Fulfillment 5

by Christopher Lovejoy on May 11, 2014

In the past week, I’ve learned something interesting: probing deeply into the nature, meaning, and purpose of everything and nothing exposes a loving, trusting heart of soul to pain and suffering.

Thankfully, such a heart can choose whether to take it on or to bless it and then release it.

This past week has found me being pulled in three directions:

  1. exposing the truth of who and what I am;
  2. probing the nature, meaning, and purpose of life and love; and
  3. realizing a dynamic balance between soul and spirit

At times, I felt as if I were coming apart on the inside; the energies inside me and around me have been highly instructive, and yet, quite intense, unrelenting, unpredictable, uncontrollable.

At times, I see and feel so much pretense in others around pain, so many failed attempts to disguise suffering, some of which affects me deeply, some of which has no effect on me at all.

I freely acknowledge: the fact that any of this affects me deeply is a clue that I have some healing to do on the inside, and for the sake of wholeness, I have no wish to spiritually bypass any of it.

I also have so much coming at me, so quickly, I hardly know what to do with it all; everything seems so relevant, so significant, and yet, at times, nothing at all seems relevant or significant.

Assuming a witness perspective helps, but is by no means foolproof, as it can be difficult to sustain 24/7.

For those who have taken it upon themselves to co-create the ultimate perspective, please be careful.

This compelling work is not for the faint-of-heart.

This past week saw me provide an outline (under part “.2.”) of the Cosmic Life Review, as I understand it, offering a brief overview of the who, what, when, where, how, and why of it, while posing essential questions relevant to the realization of the ultimate in personal fulfillment.

In the process of doing so, I was struck by this simple distinction: “things that happen” and “things that I made/make happen”.

This distinction came to me through a recent conversation I had with someone (a religious someone) about the ultimate fate of humanity. From a cosmic perspective, I often find that “the other” has much to share that is unusually relevant and significant to what I’m exploring.

Aside: I find that it matters not that “the other” seems unsophisticated, uneducated, or uncultivated. If I listen closely, something of value invariably emerges in what is said; even the way “the other” behaves, no matter how divine or noxious, can have much to share.

When viewing the world through cosmic eyes, it’s important to keep this distinction in mind. Certainly, it is absolutely fundamental to those who have undergone a Cosmic Life Review, but it’s also relevant to any distinction between soul and spirit, with the soul’s deep concern for “the truth of what happened and what is happening” and with the spirit’s inexhaustible interest or drive in “making things happen.”

In light of this distinction, I came across two perspectives this past week – one intriguing, the other breathtaking in its clarity and simplicity.

The first one would have us release all anchors to 3D reality, to renounce any and all 3D references to living life to the fullest as they are merely false constructs of an outworn 3D paradigm, and yet, curiously, the attribution, 3D, is itself a reference to third density. Presumably, in releasing all anchors to an experience of reality strictly in 3D (without benefit of 4D and 5D consciousness), one can then allow oneself to be guided primarily by sights unseen and by sounds unheard. While intriguing, this perspective nevertheless relies on the use of language to express its point of view, and as many of us know, language is full of references that rely on what we can see, hear, taste, touch, and smell. Still, I do appreciate its emphasis in having us make a shift from being centred in 3D to moving this centre through 4D into 5D.

Aside: for anyone unfamiliar with these attributions, 3D refers to a level of density of encounter and experience dominated primarily by issues of survival, safety, security, stability, and satiety; where 4D is a level of density of encounter and experience concerned primarily with learning to exercise unconditional love with respect to “the other”, 5D is a higher, lighter level of density concerned primarily with maintaining a finely honed balance with respect to love and wisdom, while exercising higher discernment for what is loved and who is loved; as of this writing, I’m still uncertain as to whether I can sustain a 6D perspective in a world that is enmeshed in a 3D paradigm (certainly, it can be entertained and assumed, but can it be sustained?) Living purely through Source consciousness is not easy, at least not with the current body and brain that I’ve been given; my sense is that some rare and beautiful and strategically placed souls do live this way much if not most of the time, and that more such souls could be incarnating on this planet as or when the collective earthly paradigm shifts from 3D through 4D into 5D

Speaking of 6D, the second perspective begins with this passage from the personage known as Gangaji:

The choiceless truth of who you are
is revealed to be permanently here, permeating everything –
not a thing and not separate from anything

This 6D message is profound, and if you feel called to do so, I invite you to take a moment to contemplate the full meaning of it, as it invites us to live purely from and through Source consciousness.

This wisdom resonates with what I said earlier about allowing “the other” to speak to me and guide me in my realizations as I go about my day (even if “the other” is not aware that this is being done).

As I see it, “the other” is best viewed as inclusive: “other” souls (at all levels of density), “other” things (other than my body), “other” events (other than events that occur inside my comfort zone).

Living “the choiceless truth of who you are”, involves a paradox: it implies no concern for thought, no interest in thought, and yet, if we are to articulate or entertain it, we have need of thought.

Perhaps we can see it this way: if actually living from and through 6D consciousness has already released thought, then living from and through 5D consciousness (on the way to 6D) involves thought.

To wit, a soul in 6D “just is” – no need to involve thought; a soul in 5D is still drawing on thought to make sense of experience, human or divine, and to fully explore the relation between human and divine.

My personal inclination at this time is to live through 5D with two foci: (1) bringing my humanity through 4D from 3D into 5D; and (2) bringing my divinity through 5D into 6D with a view towards 7D.

An articulation of 7D consciousness is beyond the scope of this post. My sense is that 7D consciousness has no direct connection to 3D consciousness, or if it does, it is extremely rare, as when 7D (angelic or prophetic) Beings intervene with care in the affairs of earthly life.

In Michael Newton’s book, Journey of Souls, he references what he calls “A Council of Elders” who serve to discuss the results of life reviews with those souls who have terminally transitioned to The Other Side. He also references a group of beings that certain others have called “The Old Ones”, who make their presence felt at these meetings. If these Elders are at a level of 6D consciousness (with Elders-in-training at 5D making their transition into 6D consciousness), then “the Old Ones” could be at a level of 7D consciousness (or higher). The light being who intervened on Howard Storm’s behalf is likely at a level of 7D consciousness, and the light beings who subsequently came to the aid of Storm are also 7D or in training to sustainably occupy 7D consciousness.

In light of this continuum of consciousness, one might speculate that Source itself is 8D, and it ends there, but then if one views Source (for this universe in which we inhabit) as a fractal of a higher level of consciousness, one might then suppose even higher levels (9D and beyond).

I’ve also wondered whether 8D Source Consciousness might be comprised of a group of Beings acting as One. This idea has a precedent in the NDE literature, with at least one reference to a human soul merging with a group of light beings to share its experience on earth.

Initially, I had no intention of articulating what might be called The Continuum of Source Consciousness, but I find myself being called to do so, especially in light of a synchronicity that occurred while I was doing so. This synchronicity offers an intriguing idea: that the lack of progress of souls on earth affects or delays the progress of souls in higher, lighter densities of consciousness. Incidentally, this lack of progress could be understood in terms of the behavior and conduct of those souls who chose or choose to assume roles in 1D consciousness (the core of pure evil) or 2D consciousness (those who do the bidding of those in 1D) as demonic or archonic, respectively. These influential and consequential arrangements might explain (1) why Life Reviews are deemed necessary, and (2) why souls having an NDE who have “more work to do” are compelled to go back to body. It’s also my understanding that the barrier between 2D and 3D is currently being strengthened – or is it that those in 3D are being helped along through 4D into 5D so as to make any talk of a barrier between 2D and 3D irrelevant? Perhaps both.

In retrospect, it seems that we are (all) truly One, in ways and by means we are not even aware.

a message for our times: “be true, be wise, be free; love is the key”




(Setting the context)


The syntactical nature of reality, the real secret of magic,
is that the world is made of words, and if you know the words that the world is made of,
you can make of it whatever you wish ~ Terence McKenna

consider this truth: “there is no truth”: true or false? if true, then false; if false, then true

words are powerful, as and when they are spoken in the light of truth, love, and wisdom




(A cosmic perspective)

Current study: the cosmic life review (learn more)

View this page to explore the 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

the body is but a vessel for soul,
serving to contain all that the soul needs;
the body is but a vehicle for spirit,
serving to convey all that the spirit desires;

how might body serve to contain and convey
both soul and spirit as vessel and vehicle?




(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?
