-- “A simple appreciation of ‘what IS’.”
This page will attempt to help you with questions like: What do I do about feeling fulfilled? How do I hold onto it, and what does it mean? (Quick answer: feeling fulfilled is just you getting in touch with who you are this very moment, just you feeling Your True Self. Just notice, just enjoy, for it will pass (and return) soon enough…)
Another three minute guide to a common thought/feeling (a la The 3 Principles).
My Thoughts About Feeling Fulfilled
Hmm, thoughts about feeling fulfilled, well they might look a little something like this, for me:
- Feelings of deep okayness
- Feelings of ease, grace and alignment
- An understanding (and feeling) that nothing is wrong (it isn’t)
Hmm, none too personal or helpful, maybe.
Let’s try again. Most of my life something has felt wrong, there has been something for me to strive for -- better understanding of how the world works, a girlfriend I fancy/’get’ and love who fancies/’gets’ and loves me, improved relationships with others, etc. It’s only recently, as I actively looked inside for answers, that I have started to notice feelings of fulfillment (fulfilledness), for no reason at all.
So, yes, I’ve felt fulfilled for no reason whatsoever, other than I allowed myself to feel the feeling (that is always there, waiting to be felt -- how could it not be).
I’ve felt fulfilled simply because I had less on my mind -- less worry, less thinking, more clarity.
And so fulfilled feels, for me at least… solid, real, whole. It feels like love. Like I can come to no harm (and I can’t, I know I can’t).
It is a quite beautiful feeling, really, a feeling of Who I Truly Am.
(These are just words, though, and words always lose something in translation. More words could be Home, Love, God, The Infinite, Source. And another word could simply be… Hmmmmmmm. Hmm.)
About Feeling Fulfilled -- The Inside-Out Understanding
Feeling fulfilled really is getting out of your own way. Thinking much less. Not having plans for any other reason than it’s nice to have plans.
- The world doesn’t have to look a certain way -- be at peace, for example
- People don’t have to believe the same things you do
- And it’s okay if you stop feeling fulfilled -- it will return to you, it will
Contrary to popular mis-conceived belief, there is no doing, when it comes to feeling fulfilled.
Feeling fulfilled is feeling Who You Are -- it is your very essence:
- A rose enveloped by freezing snow is still a rose
- When you are poorly (under the weather) or just in a low mood, you are still you beneath it all
- No matter the weather in the sky -- rain, bright sunshine, the foulest of storms -- the sky is still the sky, holding it all, judgement free
You are the sky, you are the rose, you are You.
There is no need for comparisons, no need to think, no need for anything -- because you are enough.
This is what it means to be fulfilled -- to be in touch with Who You Truly Are -- at least they are my thoughts about feeling fulfilled, anyway, this bright October morn in 2015.
About Feeling Fulfilled -- Video
Here’s what I was inspired to share in a video I recorded in October, 2015:
What Are You Thinking?
Is this making sense to you? Either the words I’ve shared, or the 3 minute hero video I recorded. Do you agree or disagree about my thoughts about feeling fulfilled (bout it not being about achievement) -- I’d love to know!…
