To have a life purpose

Whoosh, autumn is totally rocking this week! Although I’m not thrilled about it, I can find peace in the idea that this means that we get to create and enjoy the indoor cosiness that usually comes with gloomy weather. I really feel like cosying up together with others. As if aligned with the weather, this week my body actually forced me to stop doing anything besides taking rest. This was hard to accept at first, but now I am happy I got to spend some time with myself.

I’ve been wanting to share with you something: I have found my life purpose! I will not specify it here yet, but I am positive that knowing it will help me a lot. I cannot know if it will last for my whole life, but I think that it will last for a long time and that it will help me in my life and that it will guide me to where I need to go. I do regard it as my life purpose, it feels completely right.

Before, I didn’t think people had real life purposes. Sure, we can give ourselves assignments and call it our purpose, but does it come from a higher knowing? Is it meant to be like this or could it just have been anything else? Now I totally think it is possible like that, to have a true life purpose! I cannot speak for everyone, but for many people it should be possible to get a sense of what it is they should be doing.

I’m telling you that it is possible to have a life purpose, because until recently no one ever told me.

And I’m telling you this, because until recently no one ever told me! Many people are sceptical about these kind of things, but if you are not, it can open up many possibilities. And the best thing is: you are the only true authority! No one can know better than you what path you should be on, where you have to go. This means that ultimately you can rely on yourself, on your own judgement, your intuition. This may sound scary, but it is also liberating.

Many of us, including myself, have never learnt to trust ourselves fully. I see now that even though I am not there yet, I have the possibility to learn to trust myself, to follow my own intuition and thereby to create my own path. I do not know how it is going to be, but I am confident that it is possible as long as I keep the intention of doing so in my heart. Thereby I trust that I will be able to overcome difficulties that arise, step by step.

Maybe this seems too optimistic or romantic. I realise that I am lucky to live in a safe environment that allows me to experiment. But I am also aware of the fact that following our hearts is necessary to contribute to a better world.

The reason that I do not write out my life purpose is that I do not want to steer others into a particular way of thinking. Life purposes may vary widely and mine is just one form or example. Exchanging ideas is extremely useful, but in this case doing so in another settings is probably better than bluntly pouring every detail on a web page.

More to follow soon-ish about some of the things that helped me get some insights lately. Stay tuned!

Feel free to share any ideas or thoughts if you want.

With love,
