While the elements of Awakening don’t follow in some specific order for any of us. For me, almost instantaneous — same evening, same conversation — with my awakening was my desire for knowing.
This meeting and acknowledgement of Heart as Spirit in us brings along a second question that is so intertwined with Who am I that it’s difficult to distinguish. Almost in the same breath, I needed to, demanded to, know the answer to Why Am I Here? Or another way to think of it is What is my Superpower? Superheroes have a superpower!
Our new frequency of Heart operating as our central processing unit instigates this question in a renewed way. I say renewed way because most of us wonder about this question at different points in life; that, alone, is another proof of Heart constantly calling our attention to its presence within us.
If Heart works to raise this question to us throughout our lives, then how much more intense will this question be once we have awakened to Heart?
This is a point with which some will disagree, but please consider this. We create our own purpose, create our own Superpower. If you are younger or if you did not have a background in organized, dogmatized religion, you may not have as much of a challenge as I did.
Why? Because the belief was drilled into me — I accepted it and Ego welcomed it — that I would have to find what God wanted me to do with my life. There was a plan, and it was all laid out. I had to find it, like some kind of spiritual pin-the-tail-on-the-purpose game. It was exterior to me. And when I hit the right spot, I would just know it.
Ego likes such a scenario because it pleases so many others. It makes people fit in, do something which society, a moral society, approves of. And that is okay; however, the question will keep coming up until we follow the way of Heart, eternal Spirit that is part of our inherent identity — not exterior to us.
We are co-creators with Heart of our own Purpose. The Heart operating system will question and prod and lead us to choose. It is not dependent on anyone or anything else. Ego and Heart operate, and we choose whichever we want to be our operating system. The choice may be a conscious one for either operating system; however, if we do not choose, Ego is default.

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!
