Is the seeking of fulfillment really necessary, can't we just accept life as it is, live each moment the best we can, and not consciously try to attain fulfillment through our actions. In living this way we honor life and God. Fulfillment is not something that we can force life to give us. We can't say "I have done everything right," therefore I should feel fulfilled.
Could it be that once we reach the point that we let go our obsession of self-fulfillment, and simply accept life as it is, we become fulfilled?
Isn't it arrogant for someone to claim he is fulfilled? Isn't this delusional? How can one guarantee he will stay in that state forever? If you are fulfilled, why the need to say it? If you have it, then it's there, you do not have to convince anyone.
Why are we always trying to find fulfillment in the future? Doing so implies that we are presently unfulfilled, and therefore unsatisfied and unhappy.
Sometimes we find ourselves in awe upon seeing the beauty of nature and we say to our self, I can feel God's presence here, as if to imply that God suddenly made an effort to be there. In truth, God is always there. It is only our state of consciousness that actually changes.
