Ultimate Fulfillment 34

by Christopher Lovejoy on November 30, 2014

This past week saw me continue to develop a resource page for coming to terms with fate.

As I delve more deeply into the nature of fate from a cosmic point of view, I am coming to realize that an approach that I call “wholesale abstinence” is advantageous for my purposes.

As I mention in my most recent addition to the resource page referenced above, abstinence is one of those love-hate words that gets injected into cultural discourse, more positively associated with abstaining from excessive drinking than with refraining from sex before marriage.

Unfortunately, with respect to abstinence, I cannot think of a better word to convey my understanding of what is required in approaching the realization of the ultimate in personal fulfillment.

As I’ve already made clear, in my view, wholesale abstinence is not an approach intended to promote an ascetic lifestyle, whose severity can do serious damage. Personally, I welcome the notion of attracting, manifesting, and enjoying, not only all that you love and desire, but all that you can love and desire, both in terms of most and best, which of course brings us back to coming to terms with fate, with a cosmic view towards bringing fate into harmony with destiny (and vice versa).

If fate is fixed, or even if fate is merely perceived as fixed, we have something solid, something substantial, with which to work, from which to proceed, but the ultimate work to be done can only be done, in my view, with an energetic blank slate or canvas that I call wholesale abstinence, as I feel that the energies of this world (and my own tiny version of this world) are too wrapped up in the energies of separation and exclusion. I wish it were otherwise, but I must work with what I’m given.

I humbly expect that my contribution to this work will be viewed as unique by my willingness to provide and present a cosmic view of the basic, essential, and ideal elements that comprise it.

The most recent addition to my resource page for coming to terms with fate begins with this question: “So where do we go from here?”

Note: my evolving outline on the ultimate in personal fulfillment can now be found here, accessible from the nav menu under “Be Here Now”. I’ll be sure to inform readers of any updates
