Summary of ALL POSTS from April 13, 2018
- Within the question (How do you determine your life’s purpose?) is the assumption that there is a life purpose.
- There isn’t any way not to do your life’s purpose, because your life’s purpose was to be, and you are.
- We share a common purpose: to transcend the experience of duality.
- Possible purpose: “I want to see what it feels like.”
- In the last lifetime, I just made a mess of this particular thing, and I want to go back and have another shot at it.
- Somebody might have a particular family member that you have a soul relationship with and you came in to play a role with them.
- The point that we are actually trying to make here is that chances are it’s not a singular thing. You are much more than that. You are a multifaceted being, and every single facet of you has its own purpose that is going on simultaneously right now.
- Whatever is going to benefit you in your own path and also everybody else.
- If you had a focus of, “I want to live my purpose.” What do you suppose would happen? (I would live my purpose.) There you go. It can’t be that simple! (laughter)
Determining Your Life’s Purpose
Question: How do you determine your life’s purpose?
I believe you are asking how do I determine my life’s purpose. Is that correct? (Yes) It’s a good question, don’t you all think? You’re glad she asked that for everyone, right? (laughter) For this is always a good thing to know, isn’t it?
Okay. We are going to play a bit of, we’re not going to say “devil’s advocate,” but a little bit of the contrarian.
Who says there is one? You see, within the question is the assumption that there is a life purpose. We’re not saying yes or no, but we always like to be in truth. So let’s be in truth here that we’re making an assumption that “I have a life purpose, and if I could just figure it out, then I would know what it was.”
Okay, so as we said, the mind likes to think in form. So the mind would be just so pleased if it had something like that. “My purpose is such-and-such, and her purpose is such-and-such, and we’ve got it all worked out.”
We can understand that that would be nice, and there is a grain of truth in it, but we would like to come from a little bit “under the carpet,” come from underneath it, with a couple of different statements. We will just make these statements, and then you can just see how it feels for you. You might think, “Oh, well that’s true,” or you might think, “Aaah, that can’t be true.”
To be honest, there is no way not to do your life’s purpose, because your life’s purpose was to be, and you are. So! That’s that. (laughter)
Okay. That’s one. That’s just one. That’s not the only one.
Every person that incarnates, that becomes a person here, actually has a common purpose. That purpose is to transcend the experience of duality, in that it all appears to be you and me and the floor, and all these different things, yes? But if one attains the ability to know the unity of all while still operating in the singular, one has sort of “trumped” at the game. It’s as though you have signed up to participate in a game and then you score. Did it.
That’s another answer. Just noticing how you feel with the different answers.
Have you ever been with a friend and they say, “You know, I went to a park nearby. There’s just a beautiful spot there. It feels sacred to me. It feels holy. Would you like to come?”
You say, “Sure. Of course I’d like to experience it.” You go and, yea, it feels pretty good here. It feels lovely. So you’ve achieved your purpose, right? Your purpose was to experience that quality that your friend told you was so interesting.
So you may have come in with the purpose of seeing, what’s it like? What’s like to forget that you’re a powerful being, and to be in a sense of separateness? “I want to see what it feels like.” That might have been your purpose.
Or you might have a purpose of… I going to imagine that we are in linear time, and we have past lives and future lives. “And you know what? In the last lifetime, boy, did I just make a mess of this particular thing, and I want to go back and have another shot at it. See if I can do better this time.”
See, that’s another idea. You hear all these different ideas happening? Do you think any of them are true? (yes) How many? (All of them.)
So it’s all a matter of which lens you put on it, yes? Somebody might have a particular family member that you have a soul relationship with and you came in to play a role with them. That could be another purpose.
The point that we are actually trying to make here is that chances are it’s not a singular thing. Is this making sense to you all? It’s not like, “OK, this is it. Either I check that box or I don’t.” Because you are much more than that. You’re a multifaceted being, and every single facet of you has its own purpose that is going on simultaneously right now.
Now we know that’s hard to grasp, but it’s true.
This is all wonderful philosophical stuff, right? But let’s be a little more practical as well. Usually when you talk about “What’s my purpose?” it’s like, “I’m here. Let’s do it in a way that’s really to the greatest benefit all the way around.” Would you agree? (yes) So whatever is going to benefit you in your own path and also everybody else. Wouldn’t that be nice? That would be a good purpose, wouldn’t it?
How do you suppose you’d figure out what that is? Think for a moment about some of the things that have been said earlier (as others/we have spoken here). What are some of the things they talked about?
Forgiveness. Will. Focus… How would that fit in with in your life purpose? The person who asked the question, if you would answer, please. (Free will)
So you probably would have to use your free will in order to execute your purpose. Wouldn’t that make sense? It’s unlikely that you would be able to do it without using your free will at all, right? So that’s a portion of it.
What about what we talked about with the focus and the forgiveness? If you had a focus of, “I want to live my purpose.” What do you suppose would happen? (I would live my purpose.)
There you go. It can’t be that simple! (laughter) What do you think? (It sounds like it is.)
And we believe that you are successful in that, okay? You can be very successful. There’s no reason not to be. How does that feel? (Great) Good, thank you.
We’ll take one more question.
