What Is My Purpose? You’ve wondered that if you’ve been a Fundamentalist Christian, a New Ager, or a mystic at heart. Today, let’s reconsider that ideal of purpose.
There are so many reasons to seek a purpose in life, especially if you are a Spiritual Seeker. (Which is exactly what I’m going to call you today, Spiritual Seeker.)
Energy Spirituality can bring a fresh perspective to your quest. Let’s explore this topic with that fresh kind of perspective. Because as the Founder of Energy Spirituality… I don’t know everything. However, I do know some things. Which you may not yet have considered.
What Does Sacred Purpose Mean?
It’s a thrilling concept, really. Supposedly there is one big and beautiful spiritual purpose for your life. Once you find that, your life has meaning. (Also, supposedly.)
Life purpose, the real purpose of my life, my true purpose, my Divine purpose, my sacred purpose, finding my purpose.
All these variations on “Purpose”? They might be the sexiest words in the English language.
Daily experiences may not always be perfect. Yet you’re less likely to sweat the small stuff once you know about your big, glorious purpose. With that spiritual clarity you can trust your path in life.
Finding that purposeful life is so appealing. Spiritual Seeker that you are, I suspect you’re not content to have your life just be about the size of your paycheck or your number of friends on Facebook. It’s so important to connect up with something bigger than yourself. Really, could you go even one day without having your life be meaningful? I don’t think I could.
Look around and you will find so many different ways that good people pursue the quest for purpose.
In many 12-Step Programs, for instance, the immediate purpose is recovery. Appealing to one’s Higher Power is an essential part of the process. Except…
Ever Notice The Link Between Belief and Purpose?
Whatever your path, have you ever noticed how closely those two concepts are linked? Finding your purpose is almost always linked to faith of some kind. A belief system.
Maybe even a belief system that you’ve begun to outgrow.
For example, here is what Billy Graham has written in “Answers” at his popular website:
God knows all about you, and He has a plan for you. That’s why you can pray and seek God’s will when you face decisions.
The famous minister recommends that you commit your life to Jesus Christ. Then keep checking back for daily guidance.
If you follow Billy Graham’s path of Evangelical Christianity, purpose leads to what?
Fundamentalists read the Bible a great deal. Seeking Christian guidance about how to lead your life.
That’s not terribly different from what you will find at healyourlife.com, a website that promotes Hay House authors. Doreen Virtue begins one post there by telling her readers:
What’s my life purpose? is the question I’m most commonly asked.
Doreen goes on to explain:
Archangel Michael knows what your, and everyone else’s, life purpose involves.
Then the famous New Age writer describes how to use her new Life Purpose Oracle Cards. Yep, buy them. Then wear them out. Using them every day. As THE Way to consult with Archangel Michael and find your life purpose.
So Popular, the Many Ways to Seek Guidance about Your Purpose!
Besides the Graham and Virtue, so many similar sources abound. Choose any religion or belief system and you will find authorities galore. Chances are, most will direct you to constantly seek purpose and guidance.
Note: Energy Spirituality isn’t a religion. Or a belief system. So, no wonder, I won’t do what? I definitely won’t direct you to constantly seek purpose and guidance.
But doesn’t the huge popularity of these authorities attest to a universal appeal? What a relief it would be to finally, finally, find your sacred purpose! No Spiritual Seeker is content to waste this life.
Well, with the perspective of Rosetree Energy Spirituality, I’m going to share a different approach to not wasting your life.
The emphasis will be on you, rather than belief in one grand purpose. Not that I would dream of depriving you of this belief if it matters to you. Isn’t it possible to believe in more than kind of inspiration? Well, you can include belief in your personal wisdom, a.k.a. self-authority.
Why wouldn’t that be compatible with caring about your path and your purpose? Wouldn’t it be great to have all three?
Purpose + path + using your own personal self-authority.
By using the tremendous resource of your personal wisdom, you can evolve most rapidly on your personal path of spiritual awakening. And personal growth. (Or otherwise fulfill whatever’s most meaningful to you.)
Besides, ever wonder?
Why Wasn’t I Born Knowing about My Life Purpose?
The answer will be clear if you have seen any babies lately.
Know their purpose? Are you kidding? Those babies don’t even know that they have feet. Finding those toes is an especially gleeful discovery.
No disrespect intended — were just born knowing precious little. So much of life involves learning. As adults, the learning continues. Unlike those kids in elementary schools, each of us sets our own curriculum.
Today, for Instance
What will matter to you today, Spiritual Seeker? How will you make sense out of your life?
If you are interested in living fully, of course you will have a belief system that furnishes big answers.
But hey, do you really have to become so dependent upon that belief system… So dependent that you are constantly interpreting life?
Maybe you know folks like Gladys. She is so devoted to her belief system that she barely pays attention to what you say.
Or what anybody says. Or does. Unless it’s Billy Graham-style talk (or whatever).
Instead, Gladys is so busily engaged in seeking confirmation of her belief system, that is all she really notices.
Gladys finds purpose, alright. However, to people who know her and don’t share her particular belief system? They might consider that Gladys doesn’t have much of a life.
How Important Does Purpose Have to Be?
One clue might be what shows up with aura reading, energetic literacy done in depth and detail. Ha, just the kind of thing this blog is supposed to be about!
Where Does Your Life Purpose Show in Your Aura?
Does that shock you?
Might that be significant? How out of all the huge amount of info in your aura…
Nope, in your aura, there isn’t one single thing about some big life purpose.
Of course, your physical body doesn’t have that either. (Unless you were born with something like a fortune cookie fortune about PURPOSE. Maybe that slip of paper was tucked into your navel? And I’m the only one who’s missed out.)
Really, have you ever inspected your body closely and found a manufacturer’s label with “Your life purpose” inscribed in tiny letters? Heck, we humans don’t even come with garment care instructions.
About this nowhere idea, maybe you have thought of some exceptions.
Can’t These Two Popular Resources Help You Find Your Sacred Purpose?
In mainstream culture today:
Prayer might tell you.
Only many people today are very confused about prayer.
Did you know, for instance, that much of today’s prayer is really — technically — hypnosis? Not a message from God but hypnosis.
Or a psychic reading might tell you.
Did you know? According to a TON of research I’ve done…
Typically a psychic begins with a very simple version aura reading.
And subsequently connects in consciousness with one or more spirits. They’re the ones with opinions about your future, Or The Akashic Records, etc.
Despite what psychics sincerely believe, these spirits are not angels. And, sadly, discarnate beings (spirits) don’t necessarily tell the truth. Oops!
Might I suggest? You deserve a more accurate kind of insight.
