Somewhere, buried deep within each of us, is a call to purpose. It’s not always rational, not always clearly delineated, and sometimes even seemingly absurd, but the knowing is there. There’s a silent something within that intends you to express yourself. That something is your soul telling you to listen and connect through love, kindness, and receptivity to the power of intention. That silent inner knowing will never leave you alone. You may try to ignore it and pretend it doesn’t exist, but in honest, alone moments of contemplative communion with yourself, you senses the emptiness waiting for you to fill it with your music. It wants you to take the risks involved, and to ignore your ego and the ego of others who tell you that an easier, safer, or more secure path is best for you.
Ironically, it’s not necessarily about performing a specific task or being in a certain occupation or living in a specific location. It’s about sharing yourself in a creative. loving way using the skills and interests that are inherently part of you. It can involve any activity : dancing, writing, healing, gardening, cooking, parenting, teaching, composing, singing, surfing, whatever. There’s no limit to this list. But everything on the list can be done to pump up your ego or to serve others. Satisfying your ego ultimately means being unfulfilled and questioning your purpose. This is because your Source is egoless, and you’re attempting to connect to your Source, where your purpose originates. If the activities on the list are in service to others, you feel the bliss of purposeful living, while paradoxically attracting more of what you’d like to have in your life.
