As we become more enlightened, as we become more aware, as society starts to shift their consciousness, we are starting to focus on one sole thing. What is our purpose? There is a desire across society to become more aligned, more attuned, and more connected to that internal state. To that internal wisdom. And if we do, we should get the answers to what our purpose is - right? To what our mission is? To why we are here on this earth? To what our souls’ mission is?
But what if we just allowed it to be. What if we didn’t have a purpose. What if our purpose is to just live? Is to just breathe? Is to just be aware?
We place so much pressure on defining what our purpose is for an internal satisfaction or to prove to society we are here for a reason. But why do we feel we need to clench on to something? Why do we feel we need to put a label on our life’s mission? Why do we feel in order to find satisfaction, we need to find that reason? Is it because we are trying to fill something inside? Is there an underlying reason as to why we are craving that title and respect from society? From ourselves? Is there a deeper meaning behind wanting to find that purpose or feeling obliged to have a purpose that will impact someone else? Is this pressure really coming from a place of love and compassion?
Take a moment to reflect on your life. Take a moment to reflect on where you are at, right now. Have you found your so called ‘purpose’? Have you found your so called ‘mission’? Have you found the reason why you are here on this earth? Well guess what- so many of us have no idea. So many of us think we know what our purpose is, feel like we can tick that box, and feel like we are not wasting our time. But why do we have to tick this box? Why do we have to have a defined purpose or mission in order to feel worthy? Why do we feel we have to search for this reason? Why do we feel we need a purpose to live life? We act like it’s a golden ticket and without that golden ticket you cannot continue the ride. You cannot continue the journey. Why do we place so much emphasis on this? Is it in order to feel like we are accomplishing something?
That mission is only hiding a deeper wound inside. One that holds the answers to why you feel you need a title or a purpose in order to feel worthy or feel like you are on the right track. You shouldn’t need a title to define why you are here. You shouldn’t need to feel like in order to be respected amongst society, you need to have a clear mission. It should be the opposite.
You should be able to just be. To do what you want. If you feel drawn to help people, then do just that. If you feel drawn to entertain people, then do just that. If you feel drawn to just live each day and be appreciative of this, then do just that! You do not need a defined mission. You do not need a defined purpose. You just need to learn to appreciate who you are and know you are worthy of being on this earth. Know you are worthy of living this life. You do not need to create change - as by just being aware and working on yourself, you are already creating change!
If your purpose changes, or you feel you are being pulled in another direction, then allow that to happen. Stop fighting it. Allow the eb and flow to take place. Allow yourself to ride the waves. The more you hold back, the more you restrict it, the more resistance you have, the more you fight it, the more it will become prevalent. It will not go away. You will be at constant battle. Just allow it to be. Allow yourself to just be. Become aware of your internal senses. Become aware of your internal feelings. Start to raise the sound of your intuition. Start to listen to that voice within. Find out why you are craving that sense of fulfillment. Find out why you feel you need a title for respect. Find out the real reason why you are pushing your soul away.
You must start to work on yourself. You must do the inner work. Remove the pressures. Remove the titles. Remove the expectations. Just be. Sit with yourself. Sit with your feelings. Sit with your thoughts. Start listening. Stop forcing yourself to have a purpose. If you do not have a defined purpose- that’s ok. If you feel you have a defined purpose- that’s ok too. Remove the pressures and don’t feel like you have to find one in order to feel a sense of satisfaction. Know you do not have to have a clear purpose. You do need titles to feel validated. You do not need others to respect you. You need to respect yourself. You need to listen to yourself. You need to start becoming aware.
Remove the pressures. Remove the expectations. Just be.
