Living Your Life Purpose

By Colleen-Joy Page

You are on purpose and your existence matters. Without you, there would be something crucial missing from the universe. Without you the universe would not be the same. You may only feel like a drop in the ocean, but I tell you this, you have the power of the ocean inside of you ... and the ocean knows you, even if you have forgotten the ocean. When you find the ocean in you, you will feel like the river the runs towards the sea, not trying to climb hills but simply flowing in accordance with the deeper calling that draws you nearer to fully merge with your greatest self.

Have you ever had that annoying experience of going to a room to fetch something only to stand there wondering what you went there for? Standing there wondering, "What am I here for?" - that annoying feeling of having forgotten what you came here for - sounds a lot like life doesn't it? You wake up one day with that same annoying feeling - having forgotten what you are here for in the first place. Why did I come here? Like it's on the tip of your tongue but you just can't seem to grasp it, "what am I here for?"

There are 2 primary goals in any lifetime. The first and most important is BEING. The 2nd goal is dependent on the first. The 2nd goal is DOING. Most people believe that they are here to DO something and so they spend time worrying about whether they are doing what they are here to do. Many are even hoping that they can just get the doing part over so that they don't have to come back again. I can't tell you how many students have asked me, "What am I here to do - what is my purpose, I want to know so that I can do it and not have to come back!"

If you focus on DOING you may miss the point entirely. BEING is the priority, DOING is just bonus.

Let's explain this crucial point further. Which provides more growth? Being and feeling worthy or doing what worthy people do? Being a creative person or doing what creative people do? Being soul or doing what spiritual people do?

Painting a picture does not mean that you FEEL and know yourself as an artist. Giving to charity does not mean that you FEEL and KNOW yourself as charitable. Lighting candles and burning incense does not mean that you KNOW yourself as SOUL.

It is the BEING, THE KNOWING and the FEELING that we are after. If your soul has struggled with self worth over many lifetimes it is not here to do worthy things, it is here to BE worthy and know WORTH. This is the difference between belief and knowing.

Doing can be done from belief or knowing. Knowing comes from being. An apple tree does not think, "Gee am I here to do apples!" The apple tree says "I am an apple tree", so anything that the apple tree does is an expression of being an apple tree. If the apple tree doesn't know it's an apple tree it may spend much time trying to make oranges. If the apple tree stumbles across making apples - it may feel in that moment a sense of peace, energy, joy or inspiration (all signs of the doing that is an expression of the true self) but if it still is out of touch with who it is it may easily go back to doing oranges.

So align with your life purpose by focusing on BEING the truth of who you are. Focus on transforming all of the fear inherent in your body about BEING who you are born to be. Then the doing becomes a natural expression of who you are, as easy as an apple tree making apples.

Another point to think about here is that you are not actually trying to change who you are. An apple tree who has forgotten who he is, is not trying to turn into an apple tree. He is trying to become conscious of who he is already. And he is trying to free himself to BE true to himself. Are you being true to yourself?

When you go looking for life purpose - you are trying to do the same. To live your life purpose look for the apple tree within, release it and let your true self grow to the full stature of your being.
