Fulfillment is not found in any goal you attain, any dream you actualize, or any purpose a clever mind has imagined and continues to chase. Fulfillment is how deeply and vividly you are experiencing whatever you appear to experience, and how freely you allow what comes and goes, to freely come and go.

The Deeper Purpose of Questions

I have a love-hate relationship with Facebook. Well, no, to be perfectly honest, I don’t really. I┬áhave a *distaste* for Facebook. There’s not much I love about it, and my feelings are not so extreme as to qualify as “hate.” But I have an account that I would delete in a heartbeat if Facebook allowed me to. Since that isn’t an option I have deactivated it. Again. I get lured back in when people I know tell me I’m missing something–an update by a mutual acquaintance, lovely photos of something or other that are only available on Facebook, etc. But I never last more than a day or two. It feels so impersonal to me… and so busy. I can’t find stillness there. But that’s just me.

It is interesting to me what spiritual teacher and healer Matt Kahn has to say about this very topic. There is no judgment in him, he simply points out how one (in this case *I*) could look at my judgments about Facebook as a gift. Here’s a snippet from his web site:

…every post is simply an opportunity to explore the vast gift of infinite possibility.

Doesn’t that just pique your curiosity about what he means by opportunity, gift, and infinite possibility? It did mine! You can read the entire article by clicking here:

So, what are you…?

I am the kingdom that you seek,
the simple truth that words can’t speak.
I am the Buddha’s silent vow,
and every question asking how.
Within all shapes and in-between,
I am the space that rests unseen.
I am the spark engulfing mind,
the noticer, you’ll never find.
With inquiry, you’ll find what’s true,
I am this breath that breathes as you.

I am the stars, I am the sky,
I am the life that cannot die.
I am this word that came and passed,
like a sound in time, that cannot last.
I am the now, I am what’s here,
and every thought, that’s seen so clear.
I am the love, I am the light,
I am the dark that’s burning bright.
I am the grace, I am the heart,
I am what can’t be pulled apart.
I am the trees, I am the birds,
I am the dream that reads these words.
I am the war, I am the peace,
and all resolve, when choices cease.
I am the joy, I am the dance,
of temporary circumstance.

I am the all, I am the one,
the truth that is, when all is done.
I am the life, just passing through,
and what remains – so, what are you?
