- Our primary purpose is to live in the present moment. Eckhart Tolle
- Our purpose is forgiveness and happiness. A Course in Miracles
- Our purpose is health, wealth, love & self-expression. Florence Shinn Scovel
- Our purpose is to discover all that we are.
- Our purpose is to serve others.
All of them sound perfect to me. I absolutely love the idea of living my life on purpose. When I am living on purpose, I feel so fulfilled and my life has so much more meaning.
I also believe that a person can have several purposes. For example, I believe that my purpose is to love myself just as I am... flaws and all. I believe that my purpose is to be a wife, a mother and a life coach, teacher and healer.
What is your purpose?
Each one of us is here to accomplish something that nobody else can accomplish. Florence Scovel Shinn wrote in her book, 'The Game of Life & How to Play It' (written in 1925), "There is for each man, perfect self-expression. There is a place which he is to fill and no one else can fill, something which he is to do, which no one else can do; it is his destiny!"
So how do you discover your life's purpose?
In my opinion, it's not about searching and digging and looking; I believe that a person will find his/her purpose by simply asking the Divine, "Show me my purposes. What do you want me to do?"
When they are finished asking, they should sit quietly in silence; they should clear their head and listen carefully. Soon, the answers will flow into their mind revealing the answer.
If nothing comes there may be a block; it could be several things. Perhaps even just a lack of belief. What could also be happening is that the message will be delivered differently. It could be that an opportunity will arise or a conversation with someone will reveal their purpose.
All that a person really needs to know is that once they've asked, they will receive. This is faith in action.
A Course in Miracles says that we have taught ourselves the most unnatural habit of not communicating with our Creator.
When it comes to your life's purposes have you ever considered a simple conversation with your Higher Power?
If not, do not delay. The world needs you to start living or at least planning your purpose. I'll remind you again how important you are and that no one can fulfill your purpose in the same way you can.
Your purpose is within you and it's in you to give.
