What’s really important to you?
“What’s really important in life? Sitting on a beach? Looking at television eight hours a day? I think we have to appreciate that we’re alive for only a limited period of time, and we’ll spend most of our lives working.
That being the case, I believe one of the most important priorities is to do whatever we do as well as we can. We should take pride in that.”
Whenever you hear the term ‘life purpose‘, what comes to mind? Note any juxtaposition of thought and feeling that may come up. Maybe you feel you are not doing something grand enough to qualify for a life purpose.
What is more grand than being happy in your own skin, doing what you do with love. Even if at times you have to dig back down inside to that core, to recapture that love.
At your core is the blueprint of your being–that is your higher purpose.
It is within you, and has always been. It’s the subtle voice (or the louder voice of immediate circumstance) that reminds you of the very guiding principles you have adopted along your journey through life. That you get to put to the test, right here and now. Where you are.
But what if things seem more than you can change?
Past limitations may be thought of as being ‘placed on you’. It may be that certain limiting factors do exist.
But they can also be used by your internal guidance system that reminds you that you can use anything in your world–any circumstance or condition, any environment–to train or condition you. To make yourself more resilient. To become what you really want to be, just by being who you really are.
Think about your own resilience, and what you can do to nurture it.
Spiritual resilience is not being hardened to the point where you ignore or deny circumstance. But using your most challenging life experiences, like the akido warrior who uses humor and flexibility, to respond and–if necessary–remake yourself.
You can refit yourself to meet new challenges by going even deeper inside than you have before.
Past the outer or ego voice that agrees with the conventional thought about either the times or particular circumstances like yours. Past the supposed elephant-like memory that reminds you of times when things seemed insurmountable, but somehow forgets to emphasize how you rose to the occasion. To that stratosphere past the point where any weariness tried to convince you “it’s no use”.
Yes, down to the core of your being that knows only love and encouragement for you, and holds the lantern to show you a new way.
What inspires you to have absolute faith in this higher guidance?
You have vast resources–of experience and wisdom. Of following love’s light. Of going to the core of your power, your spiritual reserves, and using them to refine your being and better meet its experience in the world.
It has helped you and may be ofhelp others. Someone may be waiting to hear from you here at this blog. I welcome your comments.
