Once I realized I could create any purpose I chose, I thought deeply about it. I engaged in a very real conversation with my own Heart, a magical one I referred to in an earlier post and recounted via poetry in “Bird Bath Moon,” which is in one of my Medium articles.
On that night, Heart asked me one focused question: How do I create Discovery? How do I use that identity and power in my life? That is my Purpose.
If I follow Heart, urgency is eliminated. Heart-purpose produces peace, calmness, and assurance that underlies enthusiasm, passion, and execution. I require these emotional qualities in order to envision specifics of how I will express Discovery, my Purpose, my Superpower.
Here are a few questions that might help you explore, discover, and create your Purpose as you speak with your Heart!
1. What has inspired you both in your past and recently?
2. What patterns have you recognized about things that have inspired you throughout your life? For instance, what similarities do they share? Are they consistent in basic nature — art works, technology, service to others, trades and crafts, physical exertion, music, use of numbers, or any of thousands of possibilities?
3. What inspirations have driven you to action, i.e., what inspiration has been translated into enthusiastic motivation powerful enough to make you do things like educating yourself in a variety of formats, getting involved in groups, taking jobs associated with your inspiration?
Spirit wishes to experience the beauty and intricacies of its own creation. When we create Purpose, we engage Spirit in our personalized life experience as we find ways to exercise our newly created Superpower. Pretty awesome!
When we don’t create, we miss out, and that void of having a purpose remains. My recommendation is to choose Heart, discover Self, and then create Purpose by considering what brings happiness to our soul-mind-body complex. What floats our boat and is relevant to our awakened identity?!
Now, when we look in the mirror we can see a Superhero who expresses our new Purpose, our Superpower. Do you have that vision yet?
Questions to consider:
How many times have you asked yourself or simply thought about the following questions?
Who am I, really?
What is my truth?
How do my actions reveal what I really feel and believe?
What would I do with my life if I could do anything?
What is my passion?
Why am I here?
How can I discover answers to any of these questions?
If you have considered any of these questions, I hope that my experiences and writing will give you some guidance. Please read my blog and comment and share your thoughts. I would love to hear from you!
