Searching for Your Purpose? Try These 2 Unexpected Places

Searching for Your Purpose? Try These 2 Unexpected Places

In the midst of everything, happiness is still all around you. The Universe is delighted with you- all of you.

Given all that unconditional love supporting you, you can choose who you want to be.

Here are some things Iíve learned.

1) Live your life on purpose, as a creator, with personal freedoms. Make more choices that nurture your simple joys, talents, relationships with loved ones, your contribution, your connection to abundant source and spirit.

2) Making choices based on staying close to your passions, purpose, and calling expands everything else in your world. You stay in the zone of fun, synchronicity, attraction, flow, prosperity- there is a one ness between the universe and you.

3) I have also learned that if you make choices based on anything else, you travel further away from your center. Less happens. You try harder, you do more things dedicated to make it work. You struggle. Forget things. There is a numb separateness between you and life.

4) At this moment, if you are taking stock and want your next year to be a transformational year full of gifts from your soul, I suggest two unlikely places to look where our freedoms and vitality sometimes get recaptured.

Most of us are looking for ways to live with passion and purpose. Itís critical to do so, and some people find it challenging. These places to look may surprise you with valuable informationÖ

Your Irritations

Take a good look at what irritates you. Yes, irritates! Why? Not to get worked up all over again- but to take a compassionate look inside the things that wonít let you alone. When you examine your irritations, what you find inside them are things you really care about that have remained with you unexamined. They are like grains of sand inside an oyster….Finish at

"The purpose of human life is to find God. That is the only reason for our existence. Job, friends, material interests—these things in themselves mean nothing. They can never provide you with true happiness, for the simple reason that none of them, in itself, is complete.

Only God encompasses everything. Divine joy is like millions of earthly joys crushed into one. Divine joy is the blazing Reality. Before it, earthly joys are but shadows.

The quest for human happiness is like looking around for a candle while sitting out of doors in the sun. Divine joy surrounds us eternally, yet people look to mere things for their happiness.

“He is always with me”
Yogis have learned that God can never be found outside. But when you go deep within your soul, in the temple of God, then you can say: “No one in the whole world cares for my health, prosperity, and happiness as my Father does. He is with me always.”"

These articles always assume that you are at liberty to follow your own path or "do your own thing" as they say. For some of us that is not possible if we have - for example - a 24/7 commitment to a disabled elderly person with Aspergers and dementia. Your "self" become subsumed in the daily demands.
