The basis for true fulfillment

From the August 2016 issue of The Christian Science Journal


“I need more ___. ” How would you fill in the blank? I need more money? More time? More friends? More patience? Isn’t it interesting that the underlying premise for all these desires is the belief that we are somehow incomplete, and that we can find fulfillment only by filling this assumed void through the addition of something that is not presently ours? The desire to accumulate things or knowledge or attributes to correct some lack or deficiency seems to enter into almost every aspect of human life, and it parades itself under the guise of personal growth or personal fulfillment.
