How To Live Your Life On Purpose

Aug 17, 2007
When you open up your heart, your world changes.

The first thing that happens is appreciation, for yourself and others.

As your self-love expands, and you love yourself as you are rather than waiting to love yourself when you're perfect, you also start to love others, accepting them as they are as well.

Another remarkable thing, too, begins to happen: you start to live your life on purpose.

What does it mean to live your life on purpose?

Your soul reaches out to express itself. Instead of doing what you should do, you start doing what you want to do; and instead of conforming, you start informing yourself about who you are and why you are here.

Your entire picture of the experience of your life shifts. Where before you only saw walls, you now see doors. Where before you only saw limits, you start to see horizons. And where before you thought you were alone, you start to see yourself as one with all the world.

Who you are is a miracle and where you are is a place where miracles can happen.

As you look back, remembering the person you used to be, the one who was afraid of yourself, other people and the world, who protected yourself by sealing up your heart, you feel at once appalled and amazed at your own resistance to letting yourself really feel alive.

What does it take to get to this feeling place where intuition replaces confusion, where order replaces chaos, and where harmony replaces discord?

What does it take to make faith possible?

What does it take to start living out of faith and embracing the opportunities that appear to arise out of nowhere?

It takes surrender. Surrender to what is. Surrender to who you are. Surrender to what can happen when you allow the help you need to show up.

When you let go, you do not find a void, you find a fullness of being that had always been there, a fullness that you had never noticed before. Where you thought to find an abomination, you find a god.

Who you are is more magnificent than anything that you can imagine. But you will not journey to that place of self-evolution until you give yourself permission to dissolve the codes, personal, cultural, and historical that keep you inhibited. Only you can give yourself permission to move beyond what you know to what you can learn. Only you are privy to the yearnings of your soul and only you are the guardian of your dreams. No one else can do it for you. Only you.

Your destiny is not written in the stars. It is not dictated by others. It is locked in your feeling place and your key to freedom is in your own hand.

When you open up your heart, you will know these things. Once you find the courage to love who you really are inside, it will open the way for you to start living your life on purpose.

When you break out of the prison of fear and lack, you will find magic and miracles waiting to show you the way home to your real self.

Amazing things happen when you let go and you step into the flow.
