So many of us go through life on autopilot. Nietzsche said it best…
If you are lucky enough throughout your life to realize this is not the purpose of life, but taking time to seek you own purpose. I can only share and speak from my own experience.
It’s hard for me to think and seek a big huge grandiose life purpose, but when I have been able to break it down, it comes to a few little important things. Ralph Waldo Emerson said: “To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breather easier because you have lived- that is to have succeeded”. These words resonated in me many years ago and have been the core of my beliefs and purpose.
After many years of seeking the life that ‘I thought’ I’m supposed to live and be (the Nietzsche visual) , I’ve finally come to a path of seeking my true self, my I AM, and my infinite place of joy.
Many of us take time looking in the wrong places. Maybe we live in the wrong city, I must move. Seeking a new job, this one isn’t fulfilling me. Sometimes comparing ourselves to others & their lives. A new love and relationship, this one isn’t bringing me infinite joy. You get the just of it, always seeking outside one’s self. I have also gone down those paths, till I learnt to look inside myself. Wow, once I began to understand how much infinite possibility, joy, passion, gratitude, and abundance is accessible right here in me and with me alone, my life has flourished and spilled way beyond myself.
When seeking begin to ask yourself a few simple questions:
- Is this of service to others? Am I serving a higher good?
- Am I being honest with myself and my feelings, hence doing/being/living my truth?
- Is there a passion to all I do/feel and am?
- Am I letting things that don’t matter in the grand scheme of things bother me?
- What is my motivator to do/be the way I am?
- Do I wake up excited and looking forward to live the current life I’m living?
- Am I surrounded by those whom I truly enjoy their company?
There are endless ways & paths for us to seek. What I find to be important is to find yourself and continue to challenge yourself to grow and fill your personal bucket of joy & purpose, then let it spill over onto others.
If all you can do today is to BE KIND, SERVE OTHERS, BE GRATEFUL AND LOOK BEYONG YOURSELF, I promise you a glimpse of infinite joy.
Sending you love and compassion today.
