Our purpose lies within our own ability to serve a cause beyond our physical being. Mel LLeras, C.Ht.
Good morning everybody. I would like to talk today about purpose. There are many who approach me with the desire to learn their “life purpose”. Perhaps they are asking because they are feeling lost. Perhaps, they feel unfulfilled in their work. Some people don’t express the exact words – life purpose… but seek a connection they believe is out there, but don’t have… and don’t exactly know what that looks like.
Most people have their own definition of “purpose” – whether they are referring to a life purpose, a work purpose, etc.
My piece of advice regarding the search for “purpose”…
Our purpose lies within our own ability to serve a cause beyond our physical being. That purpose, like all energy, is dynamic. Meaning, it fluxes and flows. It changes with the need of environment, both internal and external so that harmony may be maintained. When we are in harmony, we are able to appreciate whatever state we are in… whether that be a state of joy, confusion, or sadness.
One can be sad (for example)… and if one is in harmony, that sadness shall not linger beyond the necessary time to process. Once past, we can then reflect, absorb and have gratitude for the necessary lesson, experience, etc.
So how does one identify their purpose? I do it with one question which I project every day. This morning, I will ask that question to you all:
How may I be of service to you today?
Our purpose lies within our own ability to serve a cause beyond our physical being.
