What is Your Life Purpose?
With all of the current questioning of who’s lives matter and whose lives do not matter, I find it important that the readers come to an understanding of what purpose is and how to serve this purpose. The only life that cannot matter is a life that is devoid of serving a purpose, or a life that is unaware of the purpose that it is serving.
I say this because ultimately, we are all serving a purpose; the only thing to consider is whose purpose one is serving. Everyone has been given a soul, and within the soul of every man lays the reason he has come to this planet. Some men are meant to follow, some are meant to lead, some are meant to heal, and others meant to destroy. And so it must be understood that one can never find true happiness unless they are in alignment with their life purpose – whatever it may be.
So how you find your life purpose?
There are many ways, but the way that has worked for myself and many of my clientele is simple and only requires three things — A pencil, a piece of paper, and your undivided attention. All a man must do is write down what he thinks his purpose is. If it means that he must first write a thousand lines to achieve this answer, the he must and it is not until he writes something that makes him cry does he become aware of what his purpose is.
Any and everything that connects with our soul is something that strikes us up emotionally. If you ever find yourself reading a book or watching a television program and become internally emotional about what you see or here that is an instant signal from your soul that something you are watching, listening to, or experiencing at that moment has to do with the reason you have come to this planet. And so we must develop self -awareness and pay attention to ourselves so we know when our souls are communicating our purpose to us.
So a man may begin to write things down like..
My purpose is to become a lawyer and help men and women who are unjustly prosecuted
My purpose is to live a spiritual life without work or obligation
He must monitor himself and when he begins to get emotional about any particular statement he is to stop there and break down the statement by asking himself “why?”. The why’s will allow one to peel back the layers and come to the true core of what their purpose is.
A man writes “My purpose is to become a lawyer and help men and women who are unjustly prosecuted” – and then he feels a little hunch in his gut. He will then break it down by asking himself “why”. And it usually only takes four “why’s” to get the core of your purpose:
My purpose is to become a lawyer and help men and women who are unjustly prosecuted.
Because I believe that every man who lives righteously should have his freedom.
Because I find freedom to be of importance to every man’s growth and development.
Because I haven’t always been free and I have experienced a well of happiness ever since I was given my freedom.
Because freedom has allowed me to be myself and reach, free, and heal other people.
So what this man may discover is that his initial idea that his purpose was to be a “lawyer” was just a surface level concept based on the world that he was currently living in. What if that man was born into a world in which there was no law system and lawyers weren’t needed? The soul isn’t of today, the soul is eternal, so through this man’s feeling that he wanted to be a lawyer he was able to discover that his true purpose in life is to help liberate and free people in every possible way.
Do you see how it works?
That purpose can be taken and applied to many difference careers. Any career that involves the freeing of people bodies, minds, or souls will allow that individual to experience happiness in his daily life. A man that knows his purpose opens up his world is in tune with that which created him; he therefore creates internal happiness.
So what is your purpose?
I have worked with many of my clients on this question and for some it takes seconds while others may take weeks to finally write down something that resonates. However, even if it took years, the happiness that will follow the realization will be worth far more than any amount of time and energy that was put in.
As my clients attested to, this realization of their purpose meant that there no longer exist days that seem only defined by boredom and repetition. Their lives became a lot more valuable; the feeling that they were following a divine order gave them more zest when they woke up in the morning. They each realized that they are not here to live for themselves, but to live and serve a higher purpose for that which they were created for.
Now if you don’t believe in purpose or a need for one, I tip my hat to you. I myself am not sure where I would gather my motivation if it weren’t for my belief in something higher than me. I’ve been able to reach higher levels of achievement and accomplishment while under the belief that although I am self-employed on the surface, I am employed by the order of something divine that is within us all.
So if you understand where I am coming from, spend some time each day discovering what your life purpose is and when you figure it out or if you have already figured it out leave what you believe it to be in the comment section below. I’m curious to read them all. It is also possible for one to discover their own purpose through reading yours, thereby, adding to the site and helping any potential readers that come along after you.
Thank you for your eyes and full attention.
