Your Purpose: Find It & Live It

Yes, you have a purpose in this life. Perhaps you have questioned or searched for what you are “supposed” to do in this life. Perhaps you have felt like do not quite fit in the life you are leading… To understand or to figure this out may provide you with some perspective and relief.

It may be a bit more simple than you now know. Your expectations have gotten in your way. Your parents (or someone in the world) have had BIG plans for you and told you so. You were to grow up to be happy, healthy, wealthy, successful, and productive. BUT, they never fully explained what any of this meant and what it would take to achieve this “purpose” in your life. You may have even have bought into this expectation and may feel like you under-achieved. You may even be chasing this elusive goal(and possibly a false God.)

Do not let “Expectations” get in your way! Do not let other people’s projections make you feel like you have under-performed in ANY aspect of your life! If you have felt any unhappiness for how things have turned out or have felt “Envy” for accomplishments that other people have had, you had better rethink this attitude!

Whether you know it or not, you are a “Perfect” manifestation of the Divine Spirit AND you have all the powers to provide miracles to our world. Maybe your self-esteem does not allow you to know your perfection. Maybe your parent’s voice have become one with your ego, after so many repetitions, that these projections feel true. We are all amazing and unique manifestations learning our life’s lessons and working to remember our perfection and divinity.

Read stories about survivors of Near Death Experiences (NDE’s) or of people who have experienced spiritual “Awakenings” and see how these experiences have changed their lives and help them to remember that we are all, every one of us, perfect and in this development of consciousness together. NDE survivors mostly do NOT have any fear of death. In fact, death is not the enemy. They can more easily let go of contrived expectations placed upon them by judgmental forces. Living becomes more comfortable when you remove the anxiety of knowing the unknown, death… Perspectives and goals often change. NDE survivors are often more open and giving, basing their relationships on unconditional love and not separation or judgement.

Life, yes your life, is more about the simple “remembering” regarding your divinity and your true purpose. Your true purpose is to learn and to grow in wisdom, awareness, and to share your love. You are here to support your fellow pilgrims and bump into other souls who are tumbling around in the act of opening to their enlightenment. We are all in this together and the most simple and most powerful purpose we have is to find the perfection in everyone we bump into and to assist them to move further along their path toward remembering the divine spirit within.

Sure, you have been told, and may believe, that other people are less than you and you should be fearful and careful. Perhaps you believe that acquiring more wealth will make you happy or fulfilled. Often the opposite is true. For people must protect their acquired possessions AND none of them on their death bed wish that they could have worked harder and gained more stuff. If they have regrets, it is often about not pursuing their heart’s dreams or the lost time with people whom they have loved. The experience of living to their fullest, in any situation, is their, possibly unfulfilled, dream. Do not let this be your fate. You have been warned.

If you find that instant of awareness, the “State of Grace,” you never forget that moment of connection and unconditional love. You will know the freedom and the wisdom which exists on the other side of the veil. You are so much more than your body and your life! You are perfect and will share love and the miracles it will bring. Reach around and take the hand of your fellow travelers. Witness their stories of their experiences and learnings of this life. Find and celebrate the divine spirit you can know within them. Never let anyone convince you that you are not a perfect manifestation of the Divine Spirit. Sure you have rough edges and lessons to learn but these are there for a reason and these will elevate you through your life’s travails.

Look for support and a tribe of fellow seekers of truth. Support them and allow them to support you. Once you cross the veil and become conscious, again, you will remember you do not have the limitations that your present incarnation appears to have. You are a blessing!

If you would like support in finding and living your true purpose, consider a community like Masters of the Journey, though there are many paths to your enlightenment.

Finally, do not wallow as a “victim.” Take responsibility and know that mistakes, difficult relationships, and your most difficult experiences are there to provide the lessons that will assist you to rise above the pains we all endure in our lives (though some of us endure more challenging experiences….) We all benefit from the learning that we acquire on the path through life.

Quit Settling For “Perfect”!

The concept of “Perfect” is misused and abused. Ask someone about the weather or their trip to the park, and they often say, it was “Perfect!” This can irritate me. The casual use of any word or concept is lazy and lacks precision and, often, integrity. Our culture seems to have given up on any precision when it comes to communicating. People should be responsible for what they say. Don Miguel Ruiz in his book “The 4 Agreements” says in his 1st Agreement, “Be Impeccable with your Word.” I do not take this lightly because most people do not honor impeccability with what easily and carelessly flows out of their mouths.

Settling for an imperfect use of the word Perfect, follows on this concept that what we say, and often mean, regarding perfection is often far removed from the true definition of the word “Perfect.” The definition of Perfect is: “having all the required or desirable elements, qualities, or characteristics, as good as it is possible to be.” Other synonyms for perfect are: faultless, flawless, consummate, quintessential, exemplary, Best, optimum, matchless, ideal, incomparable, unexcelled, and unsurpassable.

The definition for the word “Perfection” is: “the condition, state, or quality of being free or as free as possible, from all flaws or defects.” The weather could be “close to perfection” but usually not perfect. Your children’s behavior, art project, musical artistry, may be very good or excellent but not perfect. As a judgement, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” but perfection, by definition, is another matter. Perfection demonstrates No Flaws.

On the other hand, your divine soul and spirit ARE “Perfect.” Yes, you are a demonstration of true perfection. Even if the weaknesses and flaws which may appear to you and others on the surface, do not match the absolute beauty and perfection of who “you really are.” You, as an incarnation with the lessons to learn, have perfection. Your strengths and weaknesses are acting as the tools to move you through the obstacles you may find. You live to improve by increasing your awareness and consciousness. Yes, this is your purpose in life. To remember your divinity and to celebrate your perfection. You’re so much bigger than the “petty” life you live in the limiting three dimensional world you (we) have created. (The use of the word, petty, is a quote from my friend Don who survived a Near Death Experience and came back to his life, and broken body, with the knowledge of how much “bigger” and more “perfect” we truly are. Bigger and better than we can know (or define) in this life.)

Your life may not feel “perfect.” It may not look “perfect.” It may not seem “perfect,” but there is a reason for every lesson and challenge. My insecurities led me to write my fist book and many other accomplishments. At the time, I did not know the value, purpose, and outcome of these achievements. As I look back on the path I traveled I realize that it was of service to me and others. It was the “Perfect” series of events which has led me to where I am at this point in my current life. Many of my life events I would not wish on anyone else including the long illness which lead to the passing of my wife of 28 years. But, looking back on these events, I learned so much. I know empathy in ways I would never have possibly been able to comprehend. A painful lesson with great value to me, and I believe to others as well. So do not run away from the difficult times and life’s struggles. There is so much to learn from these challenges.

You are much greater than you can even imagine. Our limitation in consciousness often prevents us from living in, and knowing, the perfection of the divine spirit which we are! So quit settling for the Misuse of the Word “Perfect” and appreciate the Divine Perfection of who you are which can not be defined by the words we use. (It is like attempting to find words to define a feeling, a smell, a taste, or an emotion. E.g., describe the color, Yellow, or what does garlic taste like?)

You are a blessing!

Your Thoughts Can Get in the Way

Allow your thoughts to pass through you without a negative judgement or holding on too tightly. These thoughts passing through are just concepts that you are just “trying on.”
Release your attachment! And, release your self-hatred or self negative self-judgement!

Do NOT beat yourself up for your perception and judgements of your thoughts.

With the emotions and thoughts that bubble up, like: anger, hostility, grief, fear, anxiety, self-loathing, remember, this “Game” is never over! You will continue to have judgements and thoughts bubbling through your consciousness. Attempt to not take these too seriously and get attached to the notions and ideas that may be based out of separation and defense of the ego. When my consciousness is in a stronger, spiritual mind-set, I will smile or even laugh at myself as I view the world through this judgement. For sure, this is NOT always possible especially when I have a strong emotional attachment or feel “attacked.” But, when I can get some distance and have a broader outlook, I can find my reactions to my thoughts entertaining and realize that these are exercises and “tests” for my growing consciousness.

It would help to be honest with your self-awareness even when you can remember that You need not be humble in all thoughts and situations. Sometimes honesty includes the realization and acknowledgement that you are actually good, or even superior, at doing some thing…

In writing about this, I have another thought pop up. When we struggle with the deepest remembering regarding are real, and much larger than this life, selves, we can get scared as we realize that we are fully responsible for the choices which are made… (my friend, Don, when he “returned” from his Near Death Experience (NDE) a few years ago, he awoke giggling. He giggled for three months. He giggled because he realized “how petty” our self-perceptions are, realizing that “we are so much Bigger than we realize.” See his video interview in full on YouTube at https://youtu.be/Kj_Jjsfpn-g?list=PLsWsoFPYKTDCboCGQo1Bf0TmpheRH6stb

Face your Fear!

We are often too overwhelmed and afraid of our own perfection. It is too much responsibility to NOT have any excuses…

So, Face Your Fear!

You are Divine! – Deal with it!

You are Perfect! – Live with it!

You are a Blessing! – Know it!

You are God! – Remember it!

You have a purpose… – Do it!

If you do not know your purpose or you do not remember your purpose or you are in denial about your purpose…

You are here to serve! Take the hand of your fellow pilgrim and assist them in remembering their Divinity!
