Where talent and passion collide, that is your purpose. Let me tell you what I mean:
All of us want to feel like we are doing something that matters. Some search for a sign, an arrow pointing in the direction they need to follow. Let me tell you a secret, there are no signs. The way has already been made, it’s inside you. The noise of the world drowns out this knowing and replaces it with nonsense, unnecessary baggage and confusion. It is seeking itself, a “me, me, me,” attitude that has eroded our sense of connection with our creator. As if we brought ourselves to this beautiful planet. I looked for most of my life trying to find that voice of reason to ultimately find that I had it all along. It is our divine nature. What a relief. What power!
So many people spoke over my life, many with good intentions some with their own agenda, but they didn’t know me, how could they, it’s not they’re job. It is the greatest gift we have, our own inner compass that is directly aligned with God. He does not call us to do anything that He does not equip us to do. The bible reminds us of that very fact.
I want to share this with as many as I can.
Here are four ways to see your purpose. I say see because it’s always there, staring you right in the face, patiently waiting for you to take notice.
Four ways to see your purpose:
(1) Pay attention to your talents and passion. Where they collide is your purpose.
(2) Don’t listen to anyone else’s version of what your purpose is. You have a divine guidance system that works for you. Plug into it.
(3) Be brave. Fear is a masquerade of reality. It distorts, stifles, stunts, and then abandons you after it has robbed you of your greatness. Stare it down then do what you want to do.
(4) Find a mentor. The teacher will appear when the student is ready, the old saying goes. When you are ready, I suggest you start today, seek out a wise person who has experienced what you what to accomplish, what is pulling at your heart. That wise counsel will help you hone your talents and direct your passion to its fullest potential. But they will not “tell” you what to do, instead they will teach you to listen to that still small voice inside you, to develop your own conclusions.
Knowing your purpose is not a mystical thing that is reserved for the favored few. It is your innate design. Follow it. Honor it. Use it to the best of your ability and the rest will take care of itself. Your purpose will not hurt anyone else, it may bring some painful things to light, but it will be in love. It will show you how and when to do what needs to be done. It will comfort you and strengthen you as you walk YOUR path, building you and others at the same time.
I salute you. I stand with you as you begin your preordained, predestined, walk with our creator to make our world what it is intended to be. It is a spiritual journey that you are more than equipped to take. God Bless You.
Love and Peace,
