In the beginning was the world and the world was with God and the world was God. In him everything was created and there was nothing created without him and on the sixth day, he said let us make man in our own image. He created man and breath into his nostrils the breath of life and said be fruitful and multiply. Man is a unique being with a body spirit and soul. Then, his spirit was properly attuned with God and he communicated with God like a friend. He had no knowledge of good and evil. The devil came with his vices,deceived man and he fell from his spiritual state to a state controlled by the flesh. Every spiritual connection was severed and since then man has been in 'thirst' for that which would bring fulfillment to his life.
From dawn to dusk, birth till death, man is in need of that which would bring fulfillment, satisfaction and add happiness to his inward and outward being. He expresses his thirst through the diverse needs, desires , urges that he exhibit. The insatiability of the human nature is one of the weakest attribute or characteristics of the human life .sometimes, we see people who are both financially stable and also sound in other aspects of life still craving for more while those who are not, pray and work hard to be in their position .Also some people in diverse fields of specialization or occupation wish to be free from the daily stress and challenges they face while others desire to go into that same profession or job , all in the need for contentment, inward satisfaction and fulfillment.
Can we gain fulfillment through all these?The answer of course is in the negative. We can never gain fulfillment nor inward satisfaction from our jobs, businesses .financial independence or even family life,but all these are crucial aspects or the human life. If a man relies on the material aspect for fulfillment, h3e gives the body or flesh the ability to flourish more, which is a temporary phenomenon because as he does this. The spirit and soul diminishes in strength and this in time affects the body. The spirit needs proper alinement's with God through constant prayers and meditation on the word of truth while the soul needs information, knowledge, an education both spiritual and temporal for proper advancement. Thus, the three components of the human life needs to be in balance and the discovery of of one's life purpose for the much craved fulfillment to come into existence because 'man does not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds put of the mouth of the creator
At times we seek people's approval by doing that which does not suit us with hope of being accepted by others. Sometimes we tend to forget our real selves, values and personality all in the act to please others. By doing these,we abandon our abilities, talents and even potentials. We put away things that makes us who we are, things that would have brought our potentials to utilization ,personality to limelight and give us inner joy and also forsake the part that would have led us to our life fulfillment.
