The following piece is an excerpt from my book, “Word, From Your Mother,” a daily guidance journal written for my children, Liv and Pierce-Gabriel.
What is your idea of fulfillment? Does it mean having a lot of things? Does it mean that your heart is content? Is it your idea of peace? When I think of the word fulfillment, I equate it with the feeling of contentment- that all is well and that my life is “full” of those things that bring me peace and joy.
In his new book, Metahuman, Deepak Chopra explains fulfillment a bit differently. He describes it as the need for nothing. It is the need for nothing because you are enough in yourself. He says that it is the ego that is never satisfied and always needs something to have fulfillment. If “I” can only get that job, I’ll be satisfied. If “I” can only get that house on the water, I’ll be happy. If “I” could get a perfect grade average, I will receive recognition.
You will find that even if you have all these things, it will never be enough because true fulfillment comes with the soul’s alignment to the self. How does one acquire this? By being aware that you are aware. It all goes back to consciousness. If you are the silent onlooker of your thoughts and emotions, you can transmute them. The need to fulfill the “I” will eventually dwindle as you become aware that the need for things to feel fulfillment is an illusion. It’s a human-made concept of perceived happiness with the “having” of things.
Wait a minute, then are we being superficial when we are manifesting something to be? Perhaps it’s in the wanting of something to fill a void. If you think of it in that manner, then as you are aware of it, you recognize that you are expressing lack. If you believe in lack thereof, then that is what will ultimately materialize.
You can ask for something but then believe that you’ll never get it. That’s thinking on opposite ends of the pole. If you desire something because the “having of it” will bring along the feelings of satisfaction (for example, desiring peace), well, that’s very different. Then what you genuinely want is satisfaction, not a material object. A material object may show up by default in some manner or other, I suppose. For if we ask, it is given. Maybe that’s why Neville Goddard told us to skip to the end of the show. Go right to Act III to the wish fulfilled. Then you experience the feelings associated with the having of (whatever it is).
Vibrating at a higher vibration promotes the fabrication of (whatever it is) in the material world. It all has to do with quantum physics. I’m no expert on quantum physics but do know that it’s an elementary understanding that “electrons and other particles are not real but exist only as ideas or concepts. They become real when someone asks questions about Nature, and depending on which question you ask, Nature obligingly supplies an answer.” (Heisenberg, as quoted by Deepak Chopra article on LinkedIn, December 23, 2019, Why You Can’t Always Believe Your Senses).
Therefore, if you ask, it is given. The wish is fulfilled. So, for what are you asking. What do you choose to manifest, and why? Ponder this question daily to observe in which way you are serving yourself in the highest manner.
