What It Means To Live Spiritually Fulfilled

Being happy is often misinterpreted in many ways. Most of the ways that the feeling of happiness is derived from is really not the product of true happiness but only a temporal feeling. People associate happiness with things like money, power, achieving dreams and goals, fame, accomplishments, all of which have material connections and bench marks.

“For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Mark 8:36(NKJV)”

True happiness is when one in completely at peace mentally and physically in the spiritually fulfilled life. Being able to find contentment anywhere, anytime and in anything is true happiness, and spiritual fulfillment.

“Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content:” Philippians 4:11(NKJV)

In order to live spiritually fulfilled there are certain guidelines or recommendations one can follow. Here are some of them:

  • Come to the realization that your life has a higher purpose, and that just achieving material goals for short-term comfort is understanding that there is more to life than just these tangible things that bring temporal happiness and no lasting spiritual contentment. “While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18(NKJV)
  • Spiritual fulfillment is finding the blessedness in life. Blessedness is the thing that brings most happiness to you. Keep it constant in the cycle of  your life daily. “You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy;” Psalm 16:11(NKJV)

Love life and love the path taken in life. Even if circumstances don’t allow you to love every aspect of the task at hand, looking at it with a positive mind-set allows the mind to change the thought process from negative to godly positive, thus successfully transcending the feeling of love and peace which in turn evolves into spiritual fulfillment.
