15 Dec What is Your Purpose?
Why are you here? Perhaps you’ve asked yourself that question at one point or another in your life. If you have, you certainly aren’t alone. It’s at the very core of our nature to want to know the purpose of our existence. I believe you’ll find that when you strip away all the layers of what makes us different, we’re here for the same reason and that is to transform our Fears into Power and leave this world better because of it. Fear -> Power. That’s it.
What does that really mean?
At the core of our Authentic Selves we know that we are loved and loving, safe, abundant, connected to a greater whole and that all is possible. We were born encoded with this Truth. And then somewhere along the way, through:
- the things that were said to us / not said to us, that made us feel not good enough to be loved, wanted and accepted as we are
- or the things that were done to us / not done for us that made us feel unsafe and untethered
all these experiences caused shifts in our blueprint of beliefs. We began doubting our truth and took on adopted beliefs, ones that sound a lot like:
- I’m not good enough to be loved or accepted as I am
- I’m not safe
- I don’t belong
And now with a blueprint of beliefs that looks more like a patchwork quilt (some core truths hanging on for dear life and the fear-based beliefs strongly entrenched), we take ourselves out into the world to live our lives.
By now you may have noticed that we learn by Reflection. Whatever we believe to be true about ourselves is reflected back to us, and that’s what we’ve been calling Reality.
So, when you are living from one of your core truths i.e. I am Abundant, that’s what is reflected back to you in life and wow, it feels amazing! Absolutely exhilarating!!
On the other hand, when you are living from an adopted fear-based belief i.e. I’m not good enough, that’s what gets reflected back to you. To say that it ‘doesn’t feel good’ simply doesn’t cover it. This is the deepest, most searing pain we can feel. So much so that, the sense that we aren’t good enough to be loved and accepted as we are can so depress our will to live, it is an actual threat to our very existence.
Here’s the thing you’ve got to get a handle on
This is where you’ve got to give your head a good shake. Your essential nature, that you are loved/loving, abundant and connected etc, is still intact. It’s never gone away. It was never harmed. That’s who you are! The misstep was in determining your worth by looking through other people’s broken mirrors (their unresolved issues) and thinking that it was you that was broken. It wasn’t.
Important: This is not about blame. I live by the belief that everyone does the best they can, with what they have, until they know better. But we do have to recognized where the error took place and you separated from your truth, in order for it to be healed.
Fear -> Power
No matter what form it takes, the purpose of this lifetime, for all of us, is to transform our fear-based beliefs back into the truth of our Authentic selves and live that truth here in this lifetime.
Can you imagine what your life will feel like the moment you live from your Truth: that you are extraordinary beyond belief, so deserving of being deeply loved and valued for who you are, your life overflowing with the abundance you deserve and knowing you can create anything you want?
Can you imagine what our world will look like when we create space in our relationships, homes, schools and communities for Fear to be transformed into Power/Love and with every child growing up in such an environment?
The journey to creating this kind of world, starts from within. It always does. Your purpose is not to change others. Your purpose to change yourself and in doing so, use the gifts you were given to change the world around you for the better. So, why are you here? Fear -> Power.
