There is Purpose Behind You!

‘Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny – he or she has something to fulfill, some message has to be delivered, some work has to be completed. You are not here accidentally – you are here meaningfully. There is a purpose behind you. The whole intends to do something through you.’  – Osho

Did you ever wake up one morning & wonder,  ‘What am I here for?’  Odd thought, after (how many?) years of being. Perhaps.  or, not really.

Maybe you were doing (x) for years, all of a sudden find it whipped out from under; and the phase I call ‘oh-no-what-do-i-do-now’ happens. Whether by choice or by chance, you discover it’s time to rethink who you are or what comes next. And intuitively, that little voice inside has asked you one of the hardest questions: ‘what IS my purpose in life?’

Yes, the question is “who am I” and yet we think “what do I DO now?” It is  common to get embroiled with what am I “doing” rather than how am I going to “be”… and I would suggest you stick to the CONCEPT, both linked together, and consider these questions before you try to answer yourself:

  1. What do you love, your passion outside of all else?
  2. Where lie your values (we put money toward our values first don’t we?) — how have you defined them?
  3. Do the two line up?

Spiritual happiness (knowingly choosing to be who each of us is as an individual, separate and apart from all others, including labels we may be known as) comes when we are focused on living at our singular vibration doing that which has been intended for us.

As we’ve ridden the roller-coaster called Life, most of us get distracted by those things that just happen TO us along our way rather than because of our conscious choices. And it’s not uncommon to find ourselves on a track we hadn’t intended with consequences we could not have foreseen.Whatever your circumstances, you’re not alone. And there is always time to mosey back to where you want to be.

People with perception and maybe even wisdom of the ages have reminded us somewhere along the way (think hard, it really has happened to you) that you were meant to be…..(fill in the blank)?  [Think about it — didn’t Aunt Bertha used to say you had a nack for….? And what about Dad, as he reminded me just the other day to look into that new opportunity….  And, oh-yeah, even my boss told me in that last evaluation that my strengths lie in….]

All those little signs that were glossed right over while living the day-to-day– maybe right now, this your chance.  Time to invite into your life a few key mentors and guides. Don’t forget to ask others you respect and admire how they got started.  And your Source energy — God by any other name.  Ask for the blessing your are about to receive.

Then consider your options and lay out a plan only when you feel it is right. Take your time.  It requires some soul searching for sure.  Will it be easy or simple? Probably not…just remember, it’s not about money or family or necessity or (whatever).  Don’t rationalize away the need to be you.  You are now in a process of discovery, so let the blossoming begin!

Love the process and be flexible with your plan; be open to the new adventure right in your view. Get ready for a ride beyond all others…the ticket is in your hand. The only questions now are:  Are you going by bus, boat, plane, train or rocket ship? and, Who are you inviting on the ride?  The rest will come, naturally.

You are not here accidentally – you are here meaningfully.  Oh Joy! I look forward to seeing you along the way.
