There are many millions of people on the planet now with a important purpose. They are here to play a role in the creation of a new world that will operate on very different principles than the one we live in today.
Most have no idea about this. They are just living ordinary lives while doing extraordinary things. New insights, new values, new behaviors, new ways of thinking, new actions and more care are an unfolding part of these principles.
They are setting a new baseline for how the game of life actually works. Their job is simply to become more conscious, to take on the new awareness that is available to them and apply it in meaningful ways.
The changes people are experiencing are significant and they are taking place quickly. As a result, many people are asking “What’s going on?” “Why is everything including me changing so fast?” “Why am I here?” “What am I suppose to do with my life? What is my life’s purpose?”
There are a number of ways we tend to define our life’s purpose. Identifying with our profession is a common example. “I am a….” “What I do is….” This approach to define our purpose is valid. what we do for a living, what we identify with, and so on, does define us in a way. However, there are limitations in determining our purpose through only that lens.
What we see as our purpose is often a reflection of ambition and comparison, not a deeper heart-based assessment.
We want to have status, to be respected, accepted and admired. We want to be like others we think have a desirable life. As a result, the pursuit of finding our real purpose through only what we do externally often misses the mark.
I believe that one reason finding our purpose can seem elusive is that our life’s purpose is usually not just one thing, and it’s not static. it moves with the times. Staying in resonance with our life’s purpose is a moment to moment, day by day process that is hard to put in a box.
First…recognize that it is a heart directed process, not just an intellectual, factual pursuit that provides alignment with purpose. it requires intuitive discernment. It requires letting go of some of the assumptions we have made in order to let new understanding emerge. Cultivating the intelligence of the heart gives us a better shot at seeing our purpose.
Another tip is this….the best way to find your ;life’s purpose , and the various ways it manifests, is to draw it to you instead of chasing it. Ambitious pursuit of purpose can lead to fulfilling experiences, but the rules are changing and, in this new emerging world, the payoff won’t always be what you think.
The most fulfilling experiences happen when they are surprises and/or when life exceeds expectation.
….an opportunity that changed the course of my life came to me. I recognized it, assessed it and then after checking in with my heart, maximized the situation.
….things we choose to do should be an outward reflection of an aspect of our inner purpose. Purpose often find us….we just have to be open.
Methods to draw in an ongoing understanding of life’s purpose…
Appreciate all of the things you already have in your life. Be proactively appreciative. Feel the appreciation; don’t just think it.
When you are doing ordinary things, look around…see what there is to appreciate and feel into it. This might be challenging at first but will get easier over time. There is always something to appreciate, even in a bad situation.
Appreciation and Gratitude has been a hot topic for years now. Make it real in your life now!
See life through the eyes of appreciation. Make appreciation a casual aspect of how you walk in the world and see how applied appreciation is like a magnet that draws fulfilling experiences to you.
As best you can maintain a higher frequency (inner state) in your mental and emotional natures and attitudes. Life has ups and downs, bad days, good days and better days. That’s just life. If we maintain a balance and a mature attitude in the midst of whatever kind of day we a re having, we are exercising the ability to co-create our purpose.
Consistency in maintaining an uplifting attitude over time, while allowing for those ups and downs, helps us to stay in closer contact with an understanding of our life’s purpose.
Life worlds best when we are giving more than we are taking from it. Put your needs and interest of others before your own. That is the key to finding your purpose. This does not mean to neglect yourself but always be open to helping others. Remember, if you are not taken care off and feel 100% you can NOT help others.
Have fun and don’t make finding your life’s purpose a heavy, laborious process. Let it unfold.
Do new things. Challenge yourself to step outside your normal likes and dislikes. Don’t let old crystallized mindsets limit your potential.
If we stay safe and secure, living life from the perspective of other people’s values, we can often become static and miss seeing our own true deeper purpose. Force yourself out of your comfort-zone and seek change wherever you go.
Know that the experiences of your life’s purpose is a feeling you have inside.
Not everyone is suppose to have a grandiose life’s purpose on the outside, but they can still be providing so much value to the world while being personally fulfilled.
The rich a famous for example are in many cases not happy, while a good seemingly ordinary person, like perhaps a wonderful mother doing the very best she can to take care of her children, can have such an enriching and rewarding life.
From your heart ask your authentic self for more of your life’s purpose to reveal itself and then pay attention!
Make it a sincere request daily. When new things show up, be open to them.
Try new things without over-expectation.
If new opportunities really feel right, go for them with passion but also with balance.
Practice a few of these suggestions as best as you can, be patient, give it time and watch what unfolds.
Remember your life’s purpose is not just one thing. It changes all the time and there is a purpose for every moment!
Every day you have a purpose.
Focus on that purpose and the larger sense of what your life is about will show itself.
Lastly….I myself determined a long time ago that mt life’s purpose was to focus on continuous growth and to be in service to others….assist and guide them along their path of growth. This understanding has been my compass heading for over 20 years now. Today, in this moment, I feel an even simpler purpose. I believe the purpose of my life is…to love. Just Love and enjoy the Journey <3
