To be human is to ask, then ask again, “What is my purpose?” I hear and ask this question all the time. When we feel uncertain about the answer to this big question then make it simple. Decide to be on your path today. Being on your path in this moment is far more important and inspiring.
If you stopped, got out of your routine, took the time to get really present with yourself and meditated, opening to your intuition, not your logic, how would you decide to be on your path today?
We are so programmed to think, decide, know and figure out our path, our purpose or our life’s work that we drift further and further away from ourselves, from who we are at our core.
If you are uncertain about your purpose or feel a bit off your path then do not think about it. Do not try to answer the question. Instead, stop. Come out of all your thoughts about things. Stop thinking. Be present with yourself in this moment. Decide to be on your path today wherever that leads you. Do this intuitively. No expectation.
A good measure is to love each moment and the experience.
It could be as simple as changing your attitude about this day, your life today, the people you interact with, the way your approach each experience. It could mean making different choices and placing your attention on things that matter versus things that do not and know the difference.
Rather than write goals for the New Year decide to live your purpose each day. You do not have to name it. Just be in present time. For this to work you have to get off the treadmill, out of routines, clear your thinking, let go of energy and be present.
Best wishes for the New Year,
