I’ve been struggling lately with trying to figure out what my purpose is. I want to do something big, something worthwhile, something to create change in the world. But what….?
It seems most people struggle with this at some point in their lives, if not all their life. Yet at an underlying level, I feel we are born knowing that we have a purpose inside us, that there’s work to be done, we just don’t know how to access it.
So ofcourse I have been researching and researching over the last few weeks and yesterday came across a book that I think just may have the answers, well for me at least.
It is these words that really resonated with me:
“Our purpose isn’t a thing, a place, an occupation, a title or even a talent. Our purpose is to be. Our purpose is how we live life, not what role we live. Our purpose is found each moment as we make choices to be who we really are.”
– Carol Adrienne (The Purpose of Your Life Experiential Guide)
We so often seem to externalise purpose. If we really practiced being here now, with complete awareness perhaps we’d be more open to the signs and synchronicities that the universe shares with us and learn to trust our intuition to guide us always in the right direction.
