My Purpose if Simple
Where would you have me go?
What would you have me do?
What would you have me say?
And to whom?
–A Course in Miracles
I was speaking with a dear friend, she was pretty excited about sharing what she was doing at the moment. The talk we were having shifted to purpose, she said now, she is clear about what her purpose is and was able to articulate it clearly and directly. She then asked me what was my purpose.
I told her my purpose is how God/Universe decides to use me everyday until I am no longer here.
She asked me if I am sure about that and of I can have more than one purpose.
I arrived at this decision of what my purpose is through surrender, not surrender meaning giving up, surrender meaning totally trusting the Universe to guide me.
I wanted to be an accountant, there was nothing else in my mind that I wanted to be. I did all the qualifications and graduated as an accountant. I wanted to be a Chief Financial Officer and worked hard to become one. I was fired and it rocked my world, I was so lost. Then I decided I wanted to go back to school and get my PhD. I started doing that and my money ran out just at the time I started working with women throughout the world, I wrote a book about that experience and here I am now doing none of that but feeling so purposeful about what I am doing despite all the challenges. I remember listening to Marianne Willamson and she said that she asked "God what would you have me do and what would you have me say?: That resonated with me so much. It literally woke me up.
I have a message to deliver here on this planet and once I get out of my way and trust that the message will be delivered and the rest of the details will be taken of.
It sounds simple, it is and it is not. It is simple when I listen, it is not simple when I don't listen.
Your purpose is yours, No one can determine what it is for you.
You know when you are living your purpose, you know it. It's without question. You are at a peace that passes all understanding.
When you listen to your intuition and be your best highest self your purpose is being served. That is the start.
And my friends, that is simple
