Life is a precious, sacred journey with many unexpected detours, delights and delays. Remember that the end of this journey, love is the only thing that truly matters.
Make a commitment to love yourself, put your needs first and then serve the world from your open heart. Here is a concrete strategy to help you define your unique life purpose and get love flowing back to your heart center.
Human beings are driven creatures who are programmed to act with purpose and intent. We naturally gravitate toward pleasure and withdraw from painful stimuli. We possess different preferences and aversions that make us all unique individuals with extraordinary gifts to offer the world. What causes one person enormous discomfort may be someone else’s greatest joy.
For example, some people thrive on being the center of attention and love the attention they receive from a public speaking career. For others, the mere thought of standing on a podium makes them break out in a cold sweat. Thankfully, life naturally provides us with many types of experiences so that we can choose which options best meet our aspirations. By paying close attention to our likes and dislikes, we can discover and live out our life’s purpose.
Most of us live lives of boredom and indifference out of habit. We tend to do what is expected of us because we feel this is what we must do to fulfill our responsibilities. Because we are so busy making ends meet, we forget to ask ourselves the questions in life that really matter.
