“I look within and uproot anything that is imperfect.”
This statement is the theme for this Journey of Fulfillment. I’ve been noticing things in my life, let’s call them personality defects, that I am dissatisfied with about myself. I won’t go into details, but let’s say they have to do with criticism, judgment, and lack of acceptance within myself. Then, there are also some practical habits that I want to change, particularly how I currently lack organization in some areas of my life and my space.
Simply put, there are things about myself that I want to change. It’s not that I find these habits or characteristics problematic, but I can do better. I can be better. And that is what I want.
I figure, there is not perfect fulfillment where there are imperfections. And so since I’m going for 100% Filled Full, I need to correct these little things in my personality traits and in my habits.
In addition to the uprooting, I’m going to reach, and stretch myself a little bit more on this journey. I’ve been thinking about this concept of 100% for a while now. And I really want to reach more into that. I want 100% fulfillment, 100% alignment with Divine Will, 100% Harmony within my body mind and Spirit. I want that 100% with my Divine self.
So these are my two goals, uprooting the imperfections while reaching for greater perfection. Let’s do this.
Of myself I am nothing, yet in union with My Inner Divine Mind, through My Own Loving Presence, I am everything and have everything. As I infuse my consciousness with Knowledge of my Inner Divine Mind, my activity expresses this Union and I experience life. I breathe in this life. I smile with Joy and gratitude, and I affirm: I LIVE.
I never get tired of this work. I never think, “oh I want to do less…” it’s always more like, “I need and want to do more!”. But I do get tired of not knowing, tired of feeling like I’m not getting anywhere, tired of wondering what my results are, what it is I am bringing forth, what effect any of this is having.
What am I doing?
On the show Talking Dead this week, Chris Hardwick asked Lauren Cohan, “How does Maggie remain so kind and understanding through all this, through all she’s been through?” And Lauren responded, “All the more reason tobe kind…” (paraphrased)
I wish more people had that attitude. People need kindness today more and more and more. We are not living in a zombie apocalypse, but the world is in crisis–the environment is in terrible shape; people are so disconnected; this disconnection is leading to more and more legal and non-legal drug abuse; there is war and famine and disease and destruction. Aren’t these reasons to be better people, to learn how to make things better, rather than as an excuse to be cruel to one another, to the planet, to animals? Do we collectively just not know any better?
Yes! That’s it! Collectively, we don’t know any better. That is both why this work is important (why every drop matters) and why I get tired of wondering what the results of these efforts are: there are a lot of people collectively who are not even thinking yet about “doing it better”, so the results are making the smallest of dents in the collective consciousness.
Each in their own way, little effort by little effort, we lift each other up. After all…we got ourselves out of the dark ages, and look how far we’ve come since 1400! There’s just more to do!
There are many who are working at it, working on themselves, helping to lift us all up–and to them I am truly thankful. To you for being here, working with me, I am truly thankful; to those sincere spiritual seekers, to the environmental warriors, to the leaders who want true peace, justice, and equality, I am truly thankful. To anyone working in their own way to be a decent and kind human being, I am truly thankful.
I am also thankful to my friends and family who contribute to my personal life with wonderful, loving, kind, motivating, healing, energy and interactions. It is my friends and family who are my constant supply of hope–It is possible for people to live with love and harmony every day; my life shows me this constantly. I lift me, they lift them, they lift me, I lift them…and so we rise.
