living with purpose

Martin Luther King found his purpose, and he changed the world forever.

Steve Jobs found his purpose and he change the world forever.

Marie Antoinette, Stephen Hawking, Albert Eintstein, Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln…

They all found there purpose and changed the world.

Of course, they’re all truly amazing people. But it’s not because they were exceptional people that they found their purpose. Finding their purpose is what made them exceptional people.

This is what happens when you find your purpose in life

But how exactly do you find the meaning of your life? 

Most of us spend our lives asking “Why am I alive?” ” How do I find purpose in life?” “What’s life all about?” “What’s the meaning of my life” and so on and so on. We are addicted to finding meaning and purpose. Perhaps that’s because, as American neurologist Viktor E Frankyl said, “Challenging the meaning of life is the truest expression of the state of being human.”

But the weird thing is, questions don’t provide answers. I guess that’s one of life’s little quirks. You don’t find answers by asking questions. You only ever find more questions.

If you want to truly discover your purpose you have to stop asking all those questions. Stop asking “Why am I alive.” Instead, let’s look for the reason why we are alive. Let’s look logically.

 

You can discover your true purpose with a little bit of logical reasoning…

If there is an all encompassing reason why we are alive, it logically must have been there since day one.  Now then, with this logical understanding we can deduce that, because your reason for being alive has always existed inside of you, it must be inside you right now. You just need to see it.

You have a purpose in life. And you’re alive right now. So your purpose in life logically must be inside of you right now. But you can’t see it.

You cannot see your purpose in life because there is too much interference. Your mind is consumed with thoughts of the day, thoughts of work, thoughts of what you have to do tomorrow… This information is like a blur on the retina of your mind’s eye. You need to clear it away. Only then will you see clearly. Only then will you be able to see your reason for being alive.

Secena wrote “An abundance of books is nought but distraction.” Today, an abundance of emails, phone calls, TV, ad other media is the distraction. But even those distractions are nowhere near as damaging as a mind overloaded with thoughts.

Buddha said “All that we are is the result that all we have thought.” The problem is, most of us have spent years thinking about irrelevancies like sport, TV, games…. We’ve thought about irrelevancies and thereby have become irrelevant. Now we must weed those thoughts from the garden of the mind, so we may find the seed of meaning and hope, that tiny but priceless see which will give birth to a mighty oak.

Like sculptors, we  need to chisel away every part of ourselves that doesn’t serve our form and composition. We must clean ourselves of the dust so we can shine bright in all our glory.

Thankfully, we don’t have to literally destroy or get rid of those unessential parts of your life, we just have to learn to let go of them for a moment. One moment of complete clarity is all it will take for us to see our life’s purpose.

 

To achieve that moment I’m going to suggest that you meditate. 

Meditation allows you to clear your mind. It allows you to release all that mental information. It allows you to see clearly. By meditating we sculpt away all the fat of life. We come to our very blood and find the pulse that keeps us ticking.

 

 

This simple meditation will turn the key and open the door for you

–          Begin by focusing on your breath.

–          As you focus on your breath allow any thoughts to simply slip away.

–          Notice how your perception of yourself changes as you continue to meditate. Notice how certain wrong perceptions leave you (for instance, you  realise you are not a job, a relationship, a personality… you are essentially pure energy).

–          Once you are completely relaxed (which may take anywhere from ten minutes to an hour depending on how regularly you meditate and how relaxed you naturally are) allow yourself to voice a question silently. Say to yourself, “My reason for being is…”

–          Continue to focus on your breath while repeating that line. Welcome any ideas that arise, be appreciative of them, but continue to return your focus to your breath.

–          Your answer will arise. It may not come the first time you do this exercise. It might take a few times, but once you are able to silence all those thoughts and questions, you will come to see why you are alive.

Eh, Voila, your reason for being has been revealed.
