Ultimate Fulfillment 8

by Christopher Lovejoy on June 1, 2014

“I follow my bliss for joy, through peace and love, with grace and ease.” This fundamental declaration is a perfecting ideal for anyone who desires a functional, adaptable, sustainable enlightenment.

I’ve seen many souls embodied as human who give the appearance of following their bliss for joy, through peace and love, with grace and ease, but I surmise that relatively few souls can sustain this ideal.

In my view, souls who embody as human with little or no karma are relatively rare.

In this light, consider these rather potent words of wisdom from Wayne Dyer, which I incorporated into my outline last week: The way people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.

The shadow side of this vital distinction is that it acknowledges separation between ourselves and others, while having us be self-conscious about how we respond to poor treatment from others.

The lighter, brighter side of this distinction is that it makes us aware of the importance of having and maintaining personal boundaries in our relations with others, especially with those who suffer.

One (cynical) law of (earthly) power would have us avoid the company of those who are unhappy or unlucky. Many relatively happy and lucky people already do this, either consciously or instinctively. For those professionals who deal with the unhappy and unlucky, the facades they use to manage their dealings are carefully crafted and highly polished.

Many of us have conditions for acceptance, some of which are superficial: is this person attractive enough for me, either in body or spirit? Is this person smart enough for me? Successful enough?

And yet, if we were to remove all conditions for the acceptance of another, just how vulnerable to suffering would that make us? For a while now, this is a question that I’ve been asking myself.

The Ideal of Love underlies the Life Review after transition: were you able to love The One, The Other, and The Self unconditionally and spontaneously, not just on occasion, but every moment of your life?

This past week saw me complete a draft of the Cosmic Life Review, where I offer a radical existential response to the Big Question on Love in the section labelled “.5.”.

This coming week will see me introduce and explore the basic cosmic issue of Birth, Life, and Death for guidance on seeking earthly fulfillment both personal and practical.




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: a cosmic perspective on birth, life, and death

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)


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

How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours ~ Wayne Dyer




(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)




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?
