Is finding your purpose in life important to you? Many people go through life without ever discovering that one special thing they came into this world to do. They die without realising God’s intention for them, and I always think that’s a little sad.
There is so much talk on the internet today about manifesting your dreams, achieving life-long goals and riches, but precious little about finding your purpose in life. Which, to me, is what we should be looking for.
So, how do you go about starting, or have you even given it any thought?
Our purpose is always there just waiting for us to find it. But very often we seek to hide it from ourselves. We lie to ourselves and pretend you don’t know what it is. That is how we remain in ignorance, and how we self-sabotage.
We talked about doubt in a recent post. All doubt is really belief subverted. A belief that we may not succeed. It’s a judgment against ourselves. Don’t let it get in the way of finding your purpose in life. Cast it aside and trust that your Higher Self will show you the way.
The reasons why people don’t find their purpose can be legion: we get distracted, we get scared, we talk ourselves out of it. We don’t look. But by doing so we are missing the fulcrum upon which life itself turns.
Finding your purpose in life should be the most precious thing any of us can do. Because only by doing this will we know true contentment. It is only by fulfilling the meaning God has for us in the world that we will find deep lasting peace. Yet too often we chase after the quick successes we think will give us joy but which often leave us feeling hollow.
When you do find your purpose you may discover that you need some training or extra qualifications. Don’t let this daunt you. Go ahead and get them. Take that course, go back to college if needs be, do what it takes to nurture and fulfil your new-found purpose. When I wanted to set up an internet business I knew nothing about internet marketing or html. In fact the whole thing scared me. But I took the steps necessary to achieve my dream and now I’m very successful. More importantly I’m not scared any more.
There’s a lot of nonsense written today on the internet and elsewhere about manifesting which you could do well to ignore. Instead focus every day on finding your purpose in life. Speak directly to the highest part of you, which is love.
Say, “loving spirit, you created me for a purpose. Heal my life. Remove all the obstacles in my mind that stop me from finding my true calling. Show me what my purpose is and how to achieve it.”
Rest assured it will appear.

Reality is merely an illusion - albeit a persistent one.
