True Purpose.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


I feel like I am just existing. Why does it seem that everyone knows exactly what they are put here on earth to do. I haven't a clue. I ponder. I can't even name my talents. I'm 38 year old mother of a teen aged daughter whom I love so much. I know it's my purpose to be a mom. However, I also feel that deep down that I am supposed to do more. What can I do to find out my true purpose? Any direction would be appreciated.


While it is true that some people know at an early age that they want to be a dentist or dancer, and they follow that path for their entire life, there is more to finding your true purpose than having a clear and consistent job title. Knowing your dharma is a process of deep self-exploration, and even when you gain a sense of security that you are on your own authentic path, the self-exploration process only deepens.

So let that journey of discovery of your true self be your life purpose for now. As you continue you will learn what your real strengths, talents and gifts are. You will find what activities bring you joy and what help that you provide to others does the most good. As those parts of your self are revealed to you, you will know that kind of activity is your life purpose. It doesn’t have to have a tidy label to it, it only needs to be a feeling inside that you have found your unique style of living in the world where you are thriving and making the world around you a better place. You will find your purpose, not by eagerly awaiting a revelation, but by living that question in your daily life with openness, humility, and full awareness.

    In my case is not only a matter of purpose. It`s getting to the point at 46 of not knowing what you like, what you would like to do with your life, what you are good at. I`m a white canvass and I know that because of my past, I simply lived pleasing others and followed what they liked. Assertiveness, as a concept and word, was totally unknown to me. Now, in what I thought was a very sad period, I realised that at my age, alone, with almost no family besides a sister, with no family of my own and a simple 8-4 job, I have the time to find me. this is going to be my purpose. I am writing a blog about it so that I can use it as a journal about the journey. and everyday is a discovery!

    Such a beautiful response to a big question. What I would ask this person is "What do you secretly know about yourself?" A brainstorming session over that question could be incredibly revealing. When we do that we might find that we have many characteristics that society may not put much value on. If so, then we can be certain we are on a great spiritual path! And we can know that our spiritual path serves others because of the universal principle of oneness.
