Wholeness is the concept of feeling healthy and complete in the realms of body, mind, emotion, and spirit. When we live from wholeness, we have a deeper sense of general well-being and are more able to respond to the vicissitudes of life from a place of poise and balance. Like many things, wholeness is less a destination and more of a continuous journey, where the more we learn and grow, the more there is to realize and achieve. Perfection isn’t the ultimate goal in wholeness, because wholeness is a constantly moving target, whereas perfection is a fixed point. Important hallmarks of wholeness include self-awareness, mental flexibility, emotional regulation, physical well-being, and spiritual fulfillment. We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
The experiences of what is happening in our inner emotional life and the outer, more material aspect of life, are often dissociated. It is basically fear that causes this contraction or split of awareness. Meditation can help to bridge this gap, supporting the person to wholeness and presence.
