Life on Purpose

The first of September’s posts I wrote for PsychicsForetell

There​ ​is​ ​nothing​ ​more​ ​beautiful​ ​you​ ​can​ ​be​ ​than​ ​your​ ​authentic​ ​self.​  ​It​ ​was​ ​what​ ​you​ ​were​ ​made to​ ​be.​  ​It​ ​is​ ​that​ ​simple.​  ​And​ ​that​ ​complicated.

We​ ​all​ ​seek​ ​meaning​ ​and​ ​purpose​ in​ ​ ​our​ ​lives. ​ ​Unfortunately,​ ​so​ ​many​ ​of​ ​us​ ​are​ ​locked​ ​into what ​ that​ meaning​ and​ ​purpose​ ​is​ ​supposed​ ​to ​ look​  like.​  We’ve all​ been​ sold the same idea of what​ a​ ​successful​ life should​ be.​​   ​And​ ​we​ ​spend​ ​a​ ​lot ​of​ time​  ​and money​ trying​  ​​to ​get ​that life.​  ​But how​ ​can​ ​the​ ​world​ ​know​ ​our​ ​purpose​ ​in​ ​life?​ ​How​ ​can ​ the​ world​ ​ ​know ​ who​ we​ are​ ​supposed​ ​to​ ​be​ ​when​ ​we,​ ​each​ alone,​ are​ the​ only​ one​ of​ ​us​ ​there​ ​is?

That​ ​realization​ ​can​ ​be​ ​terrifying ​ or​ ​ liberating​ depending on​ the​ light​ ​we ​receive ​ it​ ​ in.​ When​ ​ we​ realize ​ that​ no​ one​ can​ tell​​  us our ​ path,​ ​not​ truly, we have the opportunity to take back our power.​​  ​Some​ ​can ​​help​ ​us​ ​find ​our path.​ ​ ​And ​some​​ ​can’t.​  ​Because no one ​ knows​ who or what we​ are​ supposed​ to ​ be.​ ​ They​​ ​can’t​ ​know.​ ​Only​ ​we ​​can.

Somewhere​ ​deep​ ​in​ ​our​ ​hearts​ ​we​ ​have​ ​always​ ​known​ ​our​ ​Truth.​  At​ different​ times​  ​​and ​places​ in ​ our​ ​ lives​​ I’m​ sure​ we​ all have ​ honored​ ​and​  ignored​ it.​  ​We have​ ​had ​ ​times ​we have listened to our ​ heart​s ​ because​ we​ knew​ ​we​ ​​couldn’t​ ​live​ ​with​ ​ourselves​ ​if​ ​we​ ​didn’t.​  ​And​ ​we​ ​have​ all​ had​ times​ ​that​ ​we’ve ​ ​quieted​ ​our​ ​heart’s ​ song​ ​ so​ we​ could​ try​  ​to​  make​ ​ something​ that​ didn’t​ ​ fit​ ​ us​  work. ​ Because​ we​ thought​ it​​  ​was the​ right thing​ ​ to​ do.​  We​ ​have ​ all done​ things​ ​that​ ​we ​knew  weren’t​ ​true​ ​to​ ​us ​ because​  ​ it​​  was​ easier​ than​​ ​disappointing ​​another.​  ​And​ ​sometimes​ ​on​ ​our path ​ we​ feel​ like​ if ​we​ ​could​ ​ ​just​ ​deaden ​that​​ feeling​​ ​that​ ​we​ ​were ​​meant​ for​ ​​something​ ​else,​ ​we could ​ be​ content​ with​  ​what​ ​​we have.

We​ sometimes ​allow ​ the​ ​ opinion​ of​ ​others,  well​  meaning​ or​ not, to​ shape​ ​us.  ​At times, even contort ​us.    ​All​ ​the​ while ​ our​  hearts​ ​ whisper,​   ​“Follow me​ ​instead.”  When​ ​ we​ ​finally ​  ​listen ​ to​  our​ ​own  ​good counsel, ​ we​ start to remember who we are and recognize who we are not and understand through it all we are still learning and evolving.​  And ​ in​ ​ that​ space we​ can allow ourselves to be ourselves.​  And that alone is our​ ​sole​ ​purpose.​  ​That is our​ ​soul’s​ ​purpose.  To be.

“The Soul is its own purpose and end.” ~ Thomas Moore
