Ultimate Fulfillment 22

by Christopher Lovejoy on September 7, 2014

This past week saw me locate, secure, and settle into a new place to live, making it virtually impossible for me to devote much time to reading, writing, or thinking about personal fulfillment.

Nevertheless, the ideas keep percolating.

I’ve been preoccupied (mostly) with viewing the cosmic field of play from many different vantage points and I’ve come to realize that it holds much potential for bringing presence to pretense.

field-of-play-plus-self-in-To give you a taste of what I’m talking about, I invite you to contemplate this representation of the cosmic field of play, along with the insertion of a border delineating what I call The Love Zone (red), with its predominance of light pretense and light gray pretense, and the placement of a True Self, resonating at the frequency of peace (green).

From this vantage point, a witness to the heart of soul for a True Self has observational access to a fairly broad range of pretentious conduct in others. As and when the frequency changes to blue, so as to enable the Will of Self to act with spirit, the True Self has participatory access to a fairly broad range of pretentious conduct in oneself.

In giving free reign to your imagination, you can contemplate what happens when you shift the border, shrink the border, or expand the border within the perimeter of the cosmic field of play, as well as move the solar representation of the True Self to fixed positions on the field or along various lines of travel.

I’ve figured out the optimal placement of the border and the most favorable positioning of the True Self for a master creator, but I expect it will take a while before I can justify my reasoning.

In the meantime, I encourage you to locate, secure, and settle your True Self on this field of play in a way that resonates best with You. That is, find where you are now and adjust accordingly.

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

 

Context

 

(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

 

Basis

 

(A cosmic perspective)

First installment: the cosmic life review (learn more)
Second installment: a cosmic perspective on birth, life, and death

Current study: fate, birth, life, death, and destiny in context

View this page to explore the basic issues

 

Essence

 

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?”?

 

Ideals

 

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)

 

Integration

 

(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?

soul spirit

unity harmony
peace bliss
love joy
being becoming
loving caring
intimacy ecstasy
quality vitality
encounter experience
sacred divine
promise possibility
realization evolution
truth wisdom
responsibility freedom
depth height
inward outward
descend ascend
contemplation evaluation
involvement engagement
satisfaction fulfillment
cultivation celebration
dwelling peacefully flowing blissfully
heart of soul soul of spirit
contains conveys
accepts expects
let it be make it so
receptive assertive
attuned to what is required aligned with what is desired
dignity integrity
religious
spiritual
awakening enlightenment
being alive being alive

 

Application

 

(A practice for living life to the fullest)

 

exploring …

the ways and means by which I can be centred in love
the ways and means by which I can follow (or manifest!) a path with heart
the ways and means by which I can be love truly and wisely

if the first pointer serves to expose the truth of who and what I am,
and if the second serves to reveal the meaning, purpose, and direction of my life,
then the third serves to realize a dynamic balance between my soul and spirit

 

the three deep, dark fears of spiritual beings in human form

1) a fear of letting go during sexual orgasm (the sexual fear)
2) a fear of losing control, of losing one’s mind (the political fear)
3) a fear of dying in pain, in anguish, in misery (the religious fear)

dysfunctional, maladaptive, unsustainable ways to maintain personal control
(here presented as pairs: a passive matter of soul, an active matter of spirit)

obsession
compulsion

abnegation
addiction

reclusion
pretension

repression
suppression

hesitation
distraction

insulation
rejection

submission
domination

regression
aggression

inhibition
deception

procrastination
manipulation

dissociation
exploitation

when life gives you lemons, turn them into lemonade ~ a popular proverb

how people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours ~ wayne dyer

 

Commentary

 

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

weaving a terrestrial narrative that aligns with a cosmic perspective, including historical, interdimensional, extraterrestrial, conspiratorial, and eschatological elements, is an exhaustive process

such a terrestrial narrative would have us explore and expose 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

If darkness is your problem, talking about darkness won’t help.
If darkness is your problem, nothing can be done about darkness directly.
You cannot throw it out, you cannot push it out, you cannot switch it off.
Darkness is an absence. Nothing can be done about it directly.
If you have to do anything, you have to do something with the light, not with darkness.

~ Osho (Fear: Understanding and Accepting the Insecurities of Life, p. 136)

 

Questions

 

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?”

7. The ultimate in truth, love, and power: dare we ask?

 

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?
