SOS BOOK - Chapter 1.22 Why are we unhappy & unfulfilled?
When we really look within, we usually find we’re still unhappy and unfulfilled. We are not at peace with ourselves! There is a subtle but pervasive emptiness and lack of contentment. What then should we do?
WE NEED TO BREAK FREE from our past traumas & conditioning TO CHANGE OURSELVES.
But maybe we’re not yet fully committed! Our conventional ego mind might perceive changing ourselves to be difficult or risky.
This is the next life lesson (No.64):
BREAKING FREE FROM OUR PAST SEEMS THREATENING
To help our decision making, let’s view our life situation from a different perspective: WHAT IS OUR LIFE ALL ABOUT? What’s the true meaning of our lives? Most of us still haven’t grasped this! We grow up, work, fall in love, age and then we die! BUT all this seems insufficient! WE STILL SEEM UNFULFILLED! We fail to grasp the meaning and true purpose of our lives – we miss the point!
In order to find lasting contentment & deep fulfillment in our life, WE NEED TO DISCOVER OUR INDIVIDUAL LIFE PURPOSE. We need to find our unique purpose and then seek its full potential. This might require a little more information or clarification, but more importantly THIS REQUIRES OUR COMMITMENT TO THIS QUEST. This quest is AN INNER JOURNEY: an inner process of self-discovery.
This is an important principle and life lesson (No. 65):
FULFILLMENT INVOLVES A PROCESS OF INNER SELF-DISCOVERY
What is the purpose or point of our life? THE FULL ANSWER IS DIFFERENT FOR EACH PERSON! The specific answer for an individual can’t be found by just reading a book. This quest isn’t a journey of distant travel. It’s an inward journey, a process of contemplation, reflection & realization. We don’t even need to go anywhere special, except inwardly, deep within our self. Our individual and unique answer only resides there - deep within!
THE PROCESS OF INNER DISCOVERY, REFLECTION & REALIZATION DOES THE REVEALING.
In this inner process, some guidance and a little special knowledge may certainly help. Lots of advice, descriptions and opinions are also available. There are many suitable books, and whole lifetimes have been devoted to studying these questions. However, for each of us, for each unique individual, the answer or ‘way’ is different. The path for getting there is different for each of us! We are each of us so special & exceptional, despite what we might think. Even if we could be perfectly cloned genetically, our subsequent life experience would still not be identical.
Thus, there can be ONLY ONE UNIQUE ‘ANSWER’ OR PATHWAY for each person.
WE MUST FIND THIS WAY BY OURSELVES – WITHIN OURSELVES, AND WITHIN THIS PROCESS. This book will help explain this process.
This is our next principle and final life lesson (No. 66):
EACH JOURNEY OF INNER SELF-DISCOVERY WILL BE UNIQUE
We are all so different and so exceptional. If we want to start such a unique inner journey, continue reading this book to learn how to intuitively create your own uniquely fulfilled life.
