A fundamental paradox exists in my fundamental life intention to be whole. That wholeness represents rightness, completeness and fulfillment, in which I gain a temporary sense of it.
Within that intention is the implication that I am unwhole. Although a paradox, the intention to achieve wholeness motivates me to need to solve the problem of unwholeness over and over and…
Resolving an Intention Ends It!
Satisfaction would also end my motivation were it not for the need to problem-solve. For every thought of unwholeness, there’s a thought I generate to solve it. In other words, the achievement of my fundamental intention to be whole would end my life as I know it.
It’s a paradoxical conundrum of intention in which fulfillment of need = not dying as opposed to living fully.
So, I defend against the satisfaction and fulfillment of the very intention I seek to fulfill. I do whatever I can to NOT achieve wholeness. Thus, my ever-present sense of dissatisfaction. This gives me a sense of purpose, which drives me to defend me against wholeness in a game of separation.
Although I need the goal of wholeness, I also need to avoid it – to have an experience that validates separateness. Need satisfies this sense of validation by giving me a sense of purpose to be whole. In this way, I avoid satisfaction of the fundamental intention while feeling like I’m achieving it. It’s a paradox!
Satisfying a Fundamental Paradox
Want could be defined as a response to a desire of that which I perceive can satisfy a non- life-threatening sense of lack.
No matter what I want, I’ll tend to get more of it. That “it” is need fulfillment I call want. Those are the wants outside of survival needs. The more I want, the more want I’ll perceive I desire.
I can get all I want without ever depleting want. I can achieve a wholeness of want and so satisfy my need to be whole.
In the separation game that’s brilliant!
