Contentment and Fulfillment

 

What brings true contentment and sense of fulfillment? How extraordinary it is, to discover it doesn't come from what you consume or achieve. Actually, it's a simple sense of complete acceptance within, of oneself and the moment. I find it comes most strongly of all, when I'm letting go of things, rather than acquiring them.

Thank you for this snippet...I am presently in the space of asking what is at the root of this lack of fulfillment...is it social conditioning to produce and achieve in order to have value, or is it a soulful yearning drawing me toward a deeper and more full expression? Maybe both...When all the distractions are given less energy there is the core sense of lack here. It's easy to imagine that's because of stage of life or a need to express more masculine energy...but at the core it feels to me like a membrane that needs to be sunk through.This membrane feels like a boundary and acts like rubber bouncing me back to the surface and into distraction. If I stay with the lack and find okness with the experience then the membrane ceases to define the experience and clarity and rightness of action can emerge. Otherwise all of my actions are out of an avoidance of this feeling.

I feel the need to express masculine energy as well , a lot these days actually. Its when I feel I'm being carried other than my soul. I'm being here in this moment whether I express or not , whether I take the choice or not , dissolving the need, restrictions I place on myself , giving permission to be. Glad to see your posts here Jen <3

Sometimes it's understandable we may want things, and it might be entirely right within the flow that they should come your way. But there are no guarantees, as the flow is always shifting and transforming. One thing you do have management over though, is your own response to events and who you are being within them. As more acceptance of self emerges, and of the moment the way it is, that tends to bring enormous sense of well-being - it's naturally there, without even acquiring anything. Funnily enough, as this arises naturally within, it's most likely to reflect into the outer.
