What is your purpose?

One of the central messages of Inspiration Divine is that through discovering and pursuing one's purpose, we can put ourselves on the path to health, happiness and enlightenment. The concept is fairly simple and yet one that many find difficult.

In essence this process is about becoming in tune with the life force energy that is flowing from God. This energy pervades everything in the Universe and moves everything in line with God's intent. Mankind has attempted to define God's intent, but it is also possible to become present to this flow of energy rather than simply reading about it. When you oppose this energy you experience friction in your life and when you flow with this energy you experience harmony. With your purpose being in-line with God's intent, you will find your hopes and dreams manifesting because of this harmony.

Thus when we go through life disconnected from our Spirit and out of harmony, we experience chaos and friction in our lives. Our logical Minds come up with all kinds of reasons why the world works the way it does, but this too is simply a distraction from truly connecting with God. Of course, this sounds easy in principle but without an awareness of this energy force we find stepping into this new framework to be daunting (and scary).

As a result, we attempt to logically deduce our purpose. Society tells us that we need more education, more experience, more talent, more skills and more knowledge. We tell ourselves that when we get what is missing, we'll be complete. But as those that have everything that you desire will tell you, this is a never ending quest. You will never satisfy the thirst to become more complete.

In truth, you already are what you desire to be. You are perfect, whole and complete. Even if you have yet to discover or achieve your purpose, you are already complete. Achieving your purpose will not fill that hole in your heart. This is not because the hole is never ending, but rather because there is no hole.

The hole you feel compelled to fill is nothing more than a compulsion to unite with the Divine. Yes, this seems grandiose and esoteric (e.g. impossible). But that hole is a thirst to unite Humanity, to choose love and to expand God's presence. No amount of money, possessions or prestige can fill this hole, but through your purpose you will experience joy instead of pain.

Despite this being a universal calling, no other person can tell you how to discover and achieve your purpose. Many people have opinions on "the only way" you can find peace. And the path to discovering and achieving your purpose may very well come from following their advice. But, then again, it may not. Your purpose and path is as unique as your fingerprints and only you can navigate this journey.

Discovering your purpose is not difficult and yet many struggle with this basic tenet of being human. Your Spirit is perfectly aware of your purpose and communicates it to you each and every day. As you amble through life, your Spirit is sending you messages, people into your life and guiding you towards a personal discovery. Of course, you may not be listening but the communication is still occurring.

And thus we have the task before us. We are to connect to our Spiritual side and unite our Body, Spirit and Mind in balance. Learning to listen is akin to learning a foreign language. What we experience as noise today, will slowly illuminate the message that has been trying to get through to you throughout your life.

There are many people (including me) that are here to help you. And along the way you too will find that helping others is central to being human. Together we will unite and Humanity will choose love. This process begins with you and cannot continue without you. For this reason, today is the first day of the rest of your life.

So I ask you, "What it is your purpose?"
