What’s Your Real Purpose?
The short answer is: Nothing … well nothing in particular!
As long as you seek answers to such questions from the point of view of what you think you should be doing, doing, doing … you will never find out. When you ponder the various forms of self-expression, occupation or vocation on offer, searching earnestly and diligently for the “right” something to do … you will never find out. If you think you have some “special and unique” reason for being here and if only you knew what it was then everything would be ok … you will never find out …
Your reason for being here is exactly the same as everyone and anyone else. Your purpose and mine are the same and we each have complete freedom to choose HOW we will realise it and actualise it.
In order to do that, you need to accept that who you are is magnificent, powerful, lovable and valuable and that what you do doesn’t really matter. The value of you is that you are YOU, doing whatever you do. The quality of your experience and impact is about who you are being in the matter and not what you are doing. And when you choose to focus on being the most magnificent you that you can be in any moment, what you do takes on a whole new meaning. Rather than seeking validation solely through other people liking or approving of what you do, you become aware that being yourself – loving, open, honest and responsible – is what makes what you do so powerful and effective. It also means you know you are free to choose to do whatever you desire and not what you think you “should be doing to be ok”.
When you fully accept that Who You Are is perfect love – unchangeable, inviolable and constant – no matter what you do, you are free to do whatever you choose!
The purpose of life is to create your Self anew, in the next grandest version of the greatest vision ever you held about Who You Are. It is to announce and become, express and fulfill, experience and know your true Self.Neale Donald Walsch
