Make it your Purpose, To find your Purpose
|November 20, 2011||Posted by Michael Hardy under Figs and Gold|
Over the last several posts we have read the stories of amazing people who seemed to have found their purpose in life and are living by it each and every day. Truly Amazing. When one finds their life’s purpose and lives by it you can see it in everything that they are and do. They seem to have this natural energy and laser like focus on what’s important to them.
Look at Steve Jobs for example. Now there’s an example of a guy who knew what his life purpose was and had such determination all the way up to the end. But it’s not unusual to hear people say: “I don’t know what my purpose is” and “I don’t know how to go about finding my purpose”.
Well the first thing that I would say to you is that you can make it your purpose- to find your purpose. And there is nothing wrong with that. In fact what could be a more worthy cause than to take some time and figure out what the heck you are here on this earth to do.
In David Deida’s book: “The Way of the Superior Man”, he talks about how you must be willing to change everything in your life when necessary to find your life purpose and that it’s ok to enter the zone of complete unknowingness:
“A man must be prepared to give 100% to his purpose, fulfill his karma or dissolve it, and then let go of that specific form of living. He must be capable of not knowing what to do with his life, entering a period of unknowingness and waiting for a vision or a new form of purpose to emerge. These cycles of strong specific action followed by periods of not knowing what the hell is going on are natural for a man who is shedding layers of karma in his relaxation into truth.”
