You Don’t Have a Purpose

What IS the reason you’re here?

Meaning is not what you start with but what you end up with.
–Albert D’Souza

 

Dear Magnificent Ones,

What is our PURPOSE?

This is the question that humans have been asking themselves throughout time. Time and again we pontificate, going round and round in circles believing the more we think about this subject, the sooner the answers will come.

What if I told you that we don’t have a purpose? Yes, that’s correct. We do not have a purpose. At least not one that is shiny and Westernized and capable of being put on billboards all over town.

Our Purpose? It is very simple actually.

The very act of searching and desiring for our purpose in life exposes how mistakenly we are searching for something we think is outside of ourselves. It is a need we searched for to fill a void we never knew we had until we were told so.

Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances.
–Mahatma Gandhi

Forget about searching for this elusive, advertised version of PURPOSE. For this will be no different from searching for the next new car or shiny gadget. Stop pursuing anything external. There will never be anything out there that will reveal what you are supposed to do or answer why you are here.

We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.
–Dalai Lama

There will never be a grander vision or mission than to be self-aware. By this I mean becoming intimately connected to the universe that you are. Exploring and digging, experiencing and expressing all that is YOU.

After all, there only is YOU. This reality may be the hardest to figure out and the hardest to master. For when you reach this state of realization there comes a sort of contentment from living with the perfection of NOW.

You will realize this when you stop searching and thinking you had all these things that needed to be accomplished in order to BE somebody, when the only real accomplishment was the path back to YOURSELF.

Within you is the ONE who will navigate every ebb and flow, every surge and dry spell in your river. Inside of you is where you will discover the formula that transforms your life into the masterpiece that you are, transforming your world around you.

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.
–Buddha

You have the power within you to light up the dark places of the world. You have the ability to completely change every situation, every challenge that you encounter.

Could there be a better purpose than that? A life purpose where the seemingly ORDINARY becomes EXTRAORDINARY?

From this viewpoint and mindset, you feel the passion, clarity, and purpose of long ago. Stop searching and rediscover the treasure that you have possessed all along.

Are YOU Ready?

As you take each step I will be there reminding you of your Magnificence, and I will continue to do so, until you are able to see it in yourself.
