What is the point? Ever wonder that? When things are hectic and seem to just be passing by so quickly and you feel like you are not getting things done that you really want to do: what is the point? Familiar?
Well, the point is to figure out why you are here, what is your purpose. That is the work. It may be that you need to discover it, that you don’t know, or have felt that it’s shifted to something else. Or maybe you need to uncover it because it is buried among millions of to dos. Take a look and see.
Really . . . notice, spend some time on this. It could even be a question you ask yourself before you meditate, let it float, don’t push for the answer, just ask it. You know when you are looking for something it could be a bill or a document (right now for me, it is my extra camera battery which I put in a safe place hahaha) and you just thought you knew where you put it but it’s not there and you know you didn’t lose it. You look and look and can’t find it anywhere. Then you stop and let it go. Then you find it, maybe not immediately, but it shows up.
Has this happened to you? This happens to me often which is frustrating but it also always proves to me that when I let it go and surrender the answer comes.
In coaching we talk about “the hero’s journey”, a metaphor from Joseph Campbell. On our hero’s journey, as we step out into the unknown and overcome challenges and fears, we arrive at a new way of being that propels us forward toward living our bliss. Now, bliss doesn’t mean it was or is easy but that we are on our path, the path of our purpose.
Spend time on this. Even if it is 5 minutes a day. Ponder it and then let it go. When you get the hit, a light bulb goes off or an idea pops in, take an action, a small sweet, doable step towards it every day. That is the point. That is fulfilling. That is worth playing for and keeping on the front burner!!!
Love you all.
Happy Happy Tuesday
