How To Find Your Life Purpose Now

Jul 24, 2008
Happily fulfilling one's life purpose brings immense happiness, which in turn leads to robust health and physical wellbeing.

Does your life's purpose seem to be eluding you? Not sure what your "Life Purpose" is? Well, you have just found it!

You may be saying to yourself right now: "Yeah, right! How can that be? I've been searching for my life purpose all this time and here's this crazy loony telling me I just found it!"--Fair enough. Let me explain.

The thing about our life's purpose is that we tend to overcomplicate it. We think that if it is not mystical and amazing, it can't possibly be it. However, I'd like to pose a question to you. What do you think is the purpose of your life?

If we 'zero base' it, which simply means make it very plain and simple-deep down inside, you feel happiest when you are living in unison with the natural laws of the universe (pure physics, mind you). The natural laws, one of which is the law of service illustrates the point well. The grand aim for us in this life is spiritual progression (even if at first we don't recognize it).

The way we go about it in our day to day is also simple. In order to continue the experience we need to keep ourselves alive. In order for that to happen we need to work to feed ourselves and being on purpose whilst we do that means being happy whilst adding value and solving other people's 'urgent problems'.

Whether you clean houses for a living or run multi-national corporations you are on purpose when each day you are happy and can't wait to start your day because it is another opportunity to positively touch someone else's life in a positive way--adding value to them.

You see the creator of all life inscribed in each one of us a very simple program: "become better than you are, whilst helping your neighbour do the same!" It is within our daily activities that we find the opportunity and the lessons necessary to act out that program. These very opportunities help us make the necessary attitude choices in order to gain the most out of our learning: The purpose of this life.

You see our purpose as spiritual beings having a physical experience is to improve ourselves and come closer to perfection. In so doing we help those around us do the same and hence improve the collective consciousness. Making the universe a better place for everyone; and it all starts with one person at a time.

Precessional Effect
Buckminster Fuller explained it best. 'Precession', which is different to 'Procession' is an inevitable consequential result of our actions. A processional activity is one based on linear action, where the outcome is the result of an intention.

A precessional effect is a side-effect that is often unexpected and usually operates at right-angles to the 'Processional' effects (in the way that when a pebble drops into a pond, the resulting ripples on the surface propagate out at right-angles to the direction of the pebble's travel).

We see precessional side-effects clearly throughout nature. Bees are a good example. The bee needs honey, so it flies from flower to flower, collecting nectar in an intentional and straight forward cause and effect process. However, the precessional side-effect of this activity is such that flowers are pollinated in the process creating all sorts of beautiful and necessary effects in nature.

In His wisdom, the Great Spirit gave bees and humans the need to work to provide for 'self', knowing that in doing so precession would take care of the rest, thus ensuring his creatures' purposes are fulfilled daily. The more conscious you become about yourself and the need to add value to other people's lives the more valuable your precessional impact. This is also how together we can change the world, one person at a time.

Cause and Effect
Precession is the consequential aspect of our activity - the result of our actions. When looking for your life purpose you only need to concern yourself with answering yes to 3 simple questions.

1. Am I adding value and having a meaningfully positive effect on the lives of the people that cross my path?
2. Am truly coming from my heart and do I have other people's best interests (not just my own) as my priority?
3. Am I honestly happy in this pursuit? Does it make my heart sing?

The precessional effect you have on this world doesn't require outward material success and recognition although you may certainly desire it and (consequentially) receive it--what it does however require is that you go about the business of your heart, diligently.

Whether or not you answer yes to the questions above fundamentally you are already fulfilling your life's purpose. However the ideal is for you to be able to answer YES and joyfully fulfill that purpose. However, be sure to be realistic about it, just because you answer yes to the above questions it does not mean you are going to be 100% happy with your activity 100% of the time. The key is to honour yourself and start making changes (first within yourself) that will accommodate a circumstantial change in direction for you.

How do I change course?
Here are a couple of ways to help you get started in joyfully fulfilling your life purpose:

Get really clear
First you need to assess where you are and where you want to be. Get really clear about the simple things in your activities that make you happy in your life and that add value to other people. And start doing more of that,applying leverage wherever possible. There are many processes to help you with this: keeping a diary and writing down your thoughts, meditation, emotional freedom technique and even prayer are some of the ways to gain clarity.

Focus on your strengths
Playing on your strengths is going to be the one thing that will make you happiest and most successful in adding value to yourself and others. Any professional athlete will tell you that they work to bring their weaknesses to competency level, but their greatest focus and diligence is to further develop their strengths!

Listen to your heart
If you hate something--stop doing it. Get educated, get creative and start doing what you love. Life is too short to be miserable. However, take RESPONSIBILITY for your actions and be smart about your change in focus and remember as the great motivator Zig Ziglar says "You can have everything in life you want as long as you will help enough other people get what they want!"

Face your fears
Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote: "There's nothing capricious in nature, and the implanting of a desire indicates that its gratification is in the constitution of the creature that feels it". In short you wouldn't have a desire unless you were capable of its achievement. Believe in yourself and break through your fears.

One thing about life is that your commitment will be consistently and sometimes seemingly, aggressively tested. Be ready for this. Just because you are 'on purpose' does not mean it is going to be easy all of the time - we have a lot to learn! Too many say they 'want' and they 'will', but too few 'get' and 'do'--not because they can't but because they DESIST--too often just when they are about to get the desired result.

Don't let that happen to you, believe in yourself. Replace negative thoughts with a new mantra: "No matter how bad it is or how hard it gets, I AM GOING TO MAKE IT!"

Choose to be extraordinary--the seed is already in you!
