What if your purpose wasn’t what you thought it was?
Many of us think our purpose has to be something grand and prolific sounding. This is probably just stemming from marketers and entrepreneurs trying to make what they do sound more meaningful than they actually believe it is.
Things like “my purpose is to eliminate fear and doubt from the planet” (that was me), or to help X amount of people accomplish X.
Ya know, “help one million women achieve the body of their dreams” or “help create one million millionaires”.
The odds are that “mission statement” isn’t actually the deepest soul’s purpose for those people. It’s not the reason they came to Earth and it’s not what their soul’s main experience is meant to be.
What if your purpose wasn’t something all that grand?
What if it was simply to have fun?
How would you decide to live your life with that knowledge?
This idea came about from a conversation with a friend recently. I’ve been getting a lot of messages telling me to celebrate. To celebrate everything big or small. To celebrate every day. That life is a celebration.
We discussed how hard that can be sometimes and that we both get the message that we need to play more and have fun.
It was such a foreign concept to us that we both actually googled “how to have fun?”…..sad…yet hilarious.
We were able to talk about it and figure out what “fun” means to us and are both learning how to incorporate more of it into our lives.
My friend asked me, “what if your purpose was to have fun?”.
What could be done differently with that way of thinking?
In a recent healing session, I saw an archive that had the book of my life in it. I opened the book to the pages that had relevant messages to me at this time. Mine went straight to the back at the end of my life as I conversed with myself in my dying days.
He explained that my True purpose in this life is my wife, it’s being a husband, it’s being a father, and having as much fun as I possibly can while celebrating this Earthly life journey.
He explained that the more I find ways to deepen my connection with my wife, the more I can experience God, the more every other area of my life will expand. The more I love her, the more I love myself and my soul’s experience gets deeper and fuller.
(I later had this confirmed in an intuitive reading from someone else when she told me that I’ve had many quality lives as a healer but very few quality lives with a family. That it’s something my soul does not have a lot of experience with)
I think this is the same for many of souls out there. He explained to me that throughout my soul’s history, I’ve already been the greatest healer, the greatest warrior, I’ve already died all the deaths, and suffered all the suffering. Now is the time to celebrate and have fun.
Of course I will still continue to grow and develop as a healer, yes I will do as much as I can to raise the consciousness here on Earth, and I’ll do what I can to help Mother Earth.
But that is not my purpose, that is a side effect of me being Me. That will happen naturally because that’s who and what I am. But at the end of the day (my life), all my soul will really care about is “did I have fun?” and “Did I love deeply and freely in ways I never thought possible?”
For me, the healing work and pretty much everything involved with it comes naturally.
What doesn’t come naturally is showing up fully and giving unconditionally as a husband and father. I know I’m doing a great job, but I also know I’ve barely scratched the surface of what I’m capable of.
I invite you to question what your Soul’s true prupose is. Is it really to be a healer? A coach? To help people get fit or make money?
Or is it to have fun? To be a conscious mother or father? To experience various forms of deep love? To live a deeply curious and joyful life?
I think it probably is. Then anything else you do is just icing on the cake. A side effect of you expressing your authentic self and living your true soul’s purpose.
Plus I have a feeling in the eye’s of God, the fact that we humans question our purpose and meaning is straight up laughable.
Check out this Alan Watts quote which explains why:
“What I am really saying is that you don’t need to do anything, because if you see yourself in the correct way, you are all as much extraordinary phenomenon of nature as trees, clouds, the patterns in running water, the flickering of fire, the arrangement of the stars, and the form of a galaxy. You are all just like that, and there is nothing wrong with you at all.”
In the same way the trees or don’t question their purpose, perhaps we shouldn’t either. Our purpose is to be ourselves.
What about asking different questions. Instead of “what is my purpose?” Ask, “how can I be of service?”. Answer it, do it, and be on your way to a deep and rich life.
