Ego would seek to neutralize the energy of Heart by working through the mind; therefore, Heart encourages us by working through soul in creating Purpose. Soul work is emotional work, and when creating Purpose, I considered my personality, based on emotions, and my passions. These are soul concerns, and my Heart knew I needed those considerations.
Why? My Heart also knows how quickly my ego-influenced mind can rationalize me out of decisions. Therefore, in fellowship with my Heart, my emotions come first. No matter how anyone’s Heart works within a person, we come to know Self in order to be happy, content, and excited about life. We are meant to feel significant, loved, relevant — in other words, purposeful! These were some of the emotional components for me.
I do not divorce the mind and soul aspects of personality from one another; their separate consideration only serves to help me in awareness, which means I choose Heart to be the operating system for my mind, too. My mind was the biggest hindrance in making the decision about Purpose.
Heart had me use my mind to consider rationale rather than constructing rationalizations prompted by Ego. With my Heart-operated mind, I evaluated skills, abilities, education, and interests, and how the things I could choose to do would make me feel — a holistic energy of love for myself. I realized that all of my life could be summed up in one passion and mind-soul union: Discovery.
I think it may be useful to some people to name their discovered Self and created Purpose, which I suggested at the end of the previous section. Mine is Discovery. The contraries of Ego and Heart working within my mind-soul-body complex when choosing Heart allowed me to create: Heart showed me the schemes of Ego.
Ego would jump right away to cause me to think about finding a safe and secure job, respectability, justifying my actions to others, and similar Ego concerns. None of those are wrong, but they are not the principles for creating the Purpose of a Superhero.
