Attempting to discover your life purpose is a big move. It’s an even bigger move when you intend to achieve it.
There are a few special things you’ll want to consider as you set out a self-discovery journey.
Say if you have been studying in college, working hard on your essay, longing for being a graduate.
The same goes for being a human: You need to pass the life exams to be qualified as a human.
1. Life is a course designed for specific purposes for each one.
According to Edgar Cayce, a well-known prophet, everyone, with no exception, regardless of the gender, race, age, rich or poor, good or evil, millionaire or homeless on the street, has his own mission or task to be fulfilled.
Have you played your role well?
Life is a dream, We enter the world alone and end up at the funeral. Privileges, fancy house, a luxurious car, a decent job, millions or billions of dollars, none of these things go with us when we leave.
So why so serious? Each of us comes to this world as an actor. Why don’t we put in an extraordinary performance at the “Life Theater”?
Look, the stage light goes on. Your play is about to start.
Whatever your role is, This is our assigned homework. You need to perform it well.
What does the Universe drive us into a certain path? Maybe you’re a born billionaire, or in poverty, born with a beautiful face or a paralyzed physical body.
If we were born into a wealthy family, we take it for granted, but what if we find ourselves in a situation struggling to pay bills? We become a hater: why is it so unfair?
Their miseries are rooted in discontentment of the so-called meaningless and unfulfilled life role which they don’t want to play. Since they are identified with the illusions, the worries and fears seem endless.
What is the point of adversity?
From the standpoint of the universe, there is no difference between poverty and richness, happiness and sorrow, there is no such thing as bad, these all merely tools, to urge a person to discover his strength and meaning in his life.
We view things favorably simply because we have likes or dislikes.
Think of the high school curriculum, it is filled up with a variety of courses, and we were taught Languages, Arts. Mathematics. Geography…… everything a young man can imagine, so he has developed the personal knowledge bank by expanding his view of exciting courses, which helps him go further in the future.
Similarly, all life experiences are absolutely necessary.
The universe tries to enrich your curricular as much as possible, allowing you to enter various life dimensions: farmer, businessman, teacher, or household wife, you name it.
Stephen Hawking dedicated to this world, not only his scientific achievement but also his motivation and courage. Struggling with his serious disease, he has been stimulating people ’s inner passion for life.
The main reason the Universe lets you play your role is to make your live fruitful lives and gain better understandings by different dimensions and perspectives, in his own way.
2. The Universe wants us to learn our lessons in practice
Only the real-world practice could eventually tell us how well we are progressing.
It is inefficient to get a person to fully understand a concept simply by symbolic languages.
Can you understand from the word “strawberry” how it tastes? It is unlikely unless you have eaten a strawberry, you must personally have a bite.
Deep down in our hearts, we are eager to experience other’s feelings.
You must be a woman this life to know what’s truly like to be a woman. You must personally enter that particular “scene” in order to comprehend what you have to learn this life.
What is like to be a father and how it feels to be a husband. Anything other than personal experience is useless and insufficient.
Even the great Buddha had experienced a variety of roles: in his lifetime, He was once a white elephant, a prince, ascetic, before he began his career as a mentor.
He had incredibly intense experiences. Having experienced so many things in the world, one can have the confidence to describe the world as wonderful, and grow his mental toughness.
3. Find out the reason that you are living this life?
As that being said, your role in this life is a driving force for us to achieve great things. The question is how willing are you to be yourself? We thought we should have been “somebody “that changed or saved the world.
One may say: I long for being a famous movie star, the founder of the wealthiest company, the president of the United States.
But He doesn’t bother spending a minute thinking about how he can “play” well in this assigned role, instead, he is jealous of others.
Do you know that the President of the United States is also an actor? If you are still unwilling to play your role, then you will fail to pass the exams, which means that in a certain future you have to play it again and then encounter the same type of issue.
Sometimes “the mediocre me” seems hopeless. Nonetheless, the fact is you can be ordinary, but that’s not mediocre.
In the long river of destiny, the president of the United States is not much different from a household wife. By that, I’m not saying a housewife should settle down and shouldn’t set a big goal. A salesperson can also set a big goal as being a successful entrepreneur in his field. A blogger can aim to be the best selling author.
Even if a household wife, busy with doing the laundry, cooking, chores, caring for her children all the time, can find her meaning of life in the laughter of her children.
You don’t have to be one of the bigwigs to prove your value, though the word ” life purpose” or “mission” sounds heroic.
Making a cake, planning a party, these trivial things don’t mean you are less important than anyone else.
Willing to being yourself and taking a leap of faith is of key importance when you take the first step into self-exploration.
Figure out what your life purpose is
Everyone is unique with some talent, maybe it’s an interest in painting, or a little bit sensitiveness about the smell, or even like some other people, born with intense feeling towards spirituality and religion. Whatever it may be, just go and pursue it.
How lucky for Bill Gates to find his personal career at such a young age.
whereas, the majority of us are not the lucky ones.
With the power of nature, one set foot on the journey of self-exploration. Phantom crystals are one of the powerful sources from mother earth
But it makes no excuse for laziness, you should seek out your talent, your strength at the expense of any length of time, five years, ten years, thirty years or even your entire life until you grasp the insight of why you are here. We’ve been seeking, yearning for the true nature of us.
If you know exactly what you like the most, you are half successful.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did so. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover”
quoted from Mark Twain
This is one of my favorable quotes
People think too much but do little.
A story about me
A couple of years ago, I worked as a receptionist at a hypnotherapy clinic, answering telephones, scheduling and confirming appointments. When I see those visitors suffering issues of their own, I can feel the negativity around them, I can feel something I can relate, and I wanted to help if only knew how.
It didn’t take a long time for me to realize what I truly desired and determined to seek the meaning of my life, not because of dissatisfaction with my job but the urge of making a change inside of me. For me, it wasn’t an unrealistic idea.
So I went back to school and jumped to further study then I got my degree. I expanded my vision even more by exploring meditation, yoga, and other tools working on the subconscious level. And through years of a thorough education, I’ve got a systematic knowledge base, and I wanted to find out where my life could get me if I set up my goal and go for it.
4. How can we do to discover the mission of your life
Here are my best 5 tips for those of who are curious about who you are, what you are here for, — or what can you do about it.
Seize every moment, like you never lived, and leverage all your resources in life
If you like, you can choose to make your nest on the couch, eat junk food all the time. But how miserable is it to know exactly what you will look like after thirty, forty years—no difference between what you are right now if you don’t take action.
Each and every day, we are given a chance to add a drop of juice to our life purposes. Every shimmer moment of now provides a chance to turn things all around.
Notice the calling from your life
I believe that everyone has a particular seed inside which belongs to a specific direction, and you can cultivate it. Being sensitive to notice what you are good at. Once you discover your gift, shed your own light on people.
Build up empathy toward things around you, feeling the connection and love for them, you will find they are resources at your service
This is the motherlode of self-exploration.
If you are good at planning and organizing, throw a party for your friend.
If you have insight into bodybuilding, write a post about that for anyone to see.
If you’re interested in handmade craft, set up an exhibition.
If you’re passionate about photography, take some amazing picture of mountains, oceans, night sky or capture every meaningful moment, to pass on your affection to others.
If you’re talented in rhyme and melody, write your own piece of music for others to be inspired.
There are thousands of ways to do it. Whatever it may be, just reach out for it.
I am sure your special gift will have an impact on every industry in some way.
If you’re making a particular contribution to enrich the lives of others, the response from other people may help you discover your passion and your area of mastery.
A clear understanding of yourself, and eventually direction of your life will manifest when you’ve turned our desire into something tangible. This is what you can do to dedicate your affection to your life.
Generally, we are discovering ourselves along the way throughout life, and incorporating that into life.
No matter how big or small your impact is, pour your own “sunshine” into the world, live the best of your life to make the world a better place.
Try out different things
You should explore as much as possible if you don’t know what your life purpose is – Religion, Spirituality, Music, Mathematics, Painting…in these wonderful moments of yours, the true nature of who you are reveals itself.
Trying out different things doesn’t mean a waste of time. In the process of pursuing, you’ve developed flexibility and more and more image of yourself.
Your mind is not your enemy, it can be trained and cultivated to be at your assistance. You should fully demonstrate your creativity because that’s your unique way to make a difference in people’s lives.
Elon Musk, a co-founder of several large technology companies, is undoubtedly IMO a creative man pursuing what drives his curiosity.
His mind is flexible and his inner soul has such impulses to create that if it were not Tesla, not SpaceX, it would be some other high tech giants, maybe Space XYZ. What really matters is his impulse to create.
Protect your dream and make a commitment to yourself
Once you find your inner potential in one particular field, you suddenly realize that your whole life has become energetic and motivated, that is the meaning of your being alive. Only when you come up with your abilities and strength, will you have a wholehearted commitment, and extremely fast growth.
So once you discover one of your seeds, believe that this is your passion which can turn you on, every time you feel like giving up on it, every time someone else says you cannot do it, hold on, this is how the universe tests you.
Then seize on it, go in-depth, dig into it, invest in that particular aspect, nurturing it.
You would be killing it after months or years of hard work.
You should not be controlled by Money
In the end, I want to talk about money specifically. You have every reason to say that your passion is making money, you want a fancy house, you want to live a wealthy life, that’s fine, go and pursue what you want. But deep down, you should not base your personal self-value on how much money you make, try to enrich and bring value to other people, money will come along the way.
Lapis Lazuli can adjust your mindset for attracts success, promotion, and reputation in the workplace
Here are some of my thoughts, I hope everyone can discover the direction of his life.
In sum, you can accomplish your life purpose. It’s just a matter of building the right skills to discover it. If you still don’t have a clue, maybe that’s because this is the third step of finding your meaning of life.
