Lifes purpose - Life's Purpose is Messaging You.  Are You Listening?

In troubled times the chaos around you need not be reflected inside you. One of the strongest ways to remain on course is to find and know your purpose.

  • There are many ways to combat stress, but the most powerful are associated with feeling secure about who you are and why you were put here. Likewise, feeling that you are on course with your purpose is effective in keeping away anxiety and depression.  Of all the things that make human beings unique, needing purpose and meaning in our lives is one of the most prominent.

  • In the Eighties the great scholar of mythology, Joseph Campbell, invented the phrase “Follow your bliss,” which almost instantly entered into popular usage.
    • By following your bliss, he contended, “…the life you ought to be living is the one you are living.” This holds out a vision that is radically different from the notion that hard work, persistence, and keeping your shoulder to the wheel are the keys to success. As Campbell explained, “Follow your bliss, don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”
  • These factors will bring you closer to your life’s purpose by giving you a purpose today.
    • You love your work and feel energized by it.
    • You feel that you and the job are a good fit.
    • Your surroundings at work are low in stress, pressure, and office politics.
    • You contribute something valuable and earn respect for what you do.
    • You fulfill some personal ideals, such as being of service, reaching your full potential, or feeling that your work expands your horizons.
    • There is an element of creativity in what you do.
    • You feel that your co-workers are trustworthy and loyal. The same goes for supervisors and bosses.

  • At this moment many people want suggestions about returning to their purpose after a time of disruption. Here are some tips.
    • Don’t try to regain lost progress all at once. Begin with activities that are part of your purpose.
    • A good beginning is to find ways to be of service in small ways with people who are in need.
    • The key is to feel confident about what you have to give to the world. You can sit down and make a list of your talents and strengths. Then write down one or two ways to use each one in the coming days.
    • Remember that your purpose isn’t the same as your career. Keep your sight fixed on that powerful phrase, “the life you ought to be living.” Expand this to include everything that brings you closer to your ideal, and if your career hasn’t returned to its previous levels, you can still give of your time, effort, and emotional support to those around you.

Keep your ideals before you. Believe in a higher vision of life and live accordingly. Raise your expectations as high as your ideals. These have been the hallmarks of dharma for millennia, and they hold true today as much, if not more, than ever.
