I often have people ask me how to find their life purpose. I struggled with this for what seems like forever. I had a dream one night recently and in this dream I was speaking with someone. Although I can only remember snippets of this dream I awoke with a huge realization that shifted everything for me. Everyone has the same Life Purpose; in a sense we are all united in this.
You were born to do one thing. That is be true to you. Everything else falls under that.
It isn’t always easy or comfortable. But we were not put here to be asleep and in stasis. We are meant to push forward, learn lessons; sometimes hard painful lessons.
The thing is once we push through, once we live in such a way that we are true to ourselves we do find real happiness, real truth and real peace.
You cannot gain that by avoiding problems or who you are. Nor can you get there by accepting whatever society says you should.
It is my belief that you need to do what your inner light calls you to do. Do what you must as long as you are harming no one else. This is how to follow your path; by lighting your own way.
You are here to be you.
Sometimes you will feel the need to go left when it seems everyone else is going right. Go left.
Sometimes you might know what to do and that it is time to act when it seems everyone else is content to simply be where they are. Do it anyway.
Occasionally you will be told you are foolish, wrong, headstrong and others might try to change you. Follow your heart anyway.
Quit the wishy-washy fear of what others think and learn to love your own light. No one else can do this for you. Only you.
Your light is a gift and it is beautiful. Let it shine like the beacon it is.
