What is your purpose? From a young age we start to question many things in the world, and we don’t always get the answer. “That is life”, is how we are taught to live; submitting to the rules that we were born into though feeling like it goes against every cell in our body. Conforming and becoming a being that is acceptable in order to survive.
But what is acceptable about conforming. Most of the rules we were born into are from 100s of years ago, if not more. The people were different; the goal was different; the vision was different. And even then, they were conforming to the culture and ancestors before them. Think back to your grandparents… and now to your future children. Won’t you teach them different lessons, have different activities and conversations. At one point in time we built our homes, now we rent them. Things are constantly changing, we are beings of evolution but until we embrace who we are, we will resist change and rely on the programming that was given to us by people also born in different circumstances.
Sadly, this cycle actually keeps us from evolving; we become diminished versions of who our ancestors once were.
What is your purpose?
Only you can answer this. And yes, it may take a lifelong journey. But, I gots to tell ya, I am not a patient person. I want my answers ASAP so I dive deep every day.
Which topics ignite you? What activities make you feel like you are experiencing life? Actually living. What lights a fire under your belly? What are you scared of and why? What makes you feel uncomfortable? How does it keep you away from opportunities that you would have if not afraid? Where does this fear come from? Who put it there (you or someone else)? Why was put it there? How did it serve to protect you? And finally, what do you need to let go of it?
There is no life guide. No matter how many books are written, these are books from men that lived their life the way they wanted to live it. Their discoveries were made through their journey. Where is your book, what are you leaving the next generation. Or are you dropping them in a hot mess situation, directing the blame to someone or thing else. Where do you see yourself in 30 years? Can you even picture yourself living a purposeful life, full of love and abundance.
Purpose. The decision is yours.
