The Biggest Myth about Life Purpose

[Note: This is an updated article originally posted in March 2015]

Many people are much closer to living their life purpose than they think. Yet there’s a myth that can blind us to our deeper purpose …

The faulty thinking goes something like this: “I just need to know exactly what I’m here to do. Then when it’s clear to me, I can successfully live my life purpose and fulfill my mission.” Here’s the problem. Your purpose isn’t an exact thing to do. It’s not one narrow, fixed task you are meant to accomplish.

Let’s explore this myth about life purpose a bit more so we can be free from its spell.

Why Your Life Purpose is So Important

Your life purpose lets you live deeply, breathe deeply — and you can turn even your life into a work of art.

Your purpose creates a a life rich with meaning and connection, for yourself and others’ benefit.

As you are guided by a deeper purpose, you live as a meaningful specific, rather than a wandering generality, as Zig Ziglar noted. You are motivated from within, not following the dictates of others.

In short, your purpose is precious and invaluable. Let’s examine five crucial parts of being on purpose and the wonderful life it will create for you.

What Holistic Practitioners Are Missing

We live in a mental, scientific-dominant world. This costs-and-benefits world, where things must be physically measurable, has helped us make progress – but there are problems and limitations. Yes holistic-minded people and practitioners are aware of this needed balance.  Yet too often the heart is undervalued. It just remains at the knowledge level, not really …

How Much Bliss Do You Have?

How blissful are you? And for that matter, what is “bliss”?

Like happiness, bliss can be a feeling (“I’m feeling blissful”) as well as a state of awareness (“I am in bliss”).

Joseph Campbell, renown scholar and author, famously gave the advice to “follow your bliss.”  He connected this intention to the hero’s journey and following your deeper passion.

To put things in perspective, a blissful journey sometimes is fun and spontaneous. It can also involve challenges, with no easy fixes or instant gratification.

In this context, following your bliss means engaging your body-mind-spirit with goals larger-than-self.

The Alchemy of Bliss

Let’s examine further the different, jewel-like facets of bliss. Bliss is a transcendent flow – it allows you to let life flow though you. It’s a heartfelt mixture of happiness, joy, wonder and more.

Bliss also has a strong unconditional element to it. It’s not conditional, like “I’m only happy when I’m ____ [with my friends, partner, family].

Yes bliss recognizes preferences — but does not get attached to them: “I’d prefer being with him, but I’m good being by myself now.”

Bliss is the master converter and alchemist, truly making lemonades out of lemons. It also savors the sweet moments, the triumphant moments, and the quiet moments.

How to Really Make this the Best Year Ever

How can you really make it the best year ever?

The energy of a new year is a natural time to look ahead and set goals. But, as you know, this initial spark can soon fade over time. The better diet, exercise, organizing can start out fine and soon peter out, as the old habits boomerang back to the old set point.

What’s Going on with Goal Setting?

A goal is defined by Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary as “the end toward which effort is directed.” It can help give us direction so we are not spinning our wheels and just letting life pass us by. A goal may motivate us to take challenging actions (change of diet, exercise, routines) now to experience a better future.

As research shows, though, goals can easily become too difficult and defeat our will. What started out as a loft intention can ironically end up lowering our self-esteem in what turns out to be another failed attempt.

How Your Story Becomes Your Purpose

Your life is a story, a unique and personal one. Did you know that you can choose to turn your narrative into a hero’s journey?

Here’s the challenge: it’s easy to be unaware of your heroic possibilities as you get lost in routine, distraction and hurry-and-worry.

So let’s look at how you can become the hero/heroine of your own story – consciously authoring your own life. 

What Limits Your Story  

What holds you back? It’s largely the limiting beliefs, programmed into us by authorities and carried over from generation to generation and lifetime to lifetime.

Is Your Soul Calling You?

Is your soul calling you? … Yes, it is – so then the question becomes: Are you listening?  At first, the messages may seem like an inkling, or perhaps a glimpse.  “Maybe I just imagined it,” you might say, part dismissively, part wondering.

Yet by paying attention to the promptings from your deeper self, your life takes on a different quality, with more meaning and depth.

Two Important Questions 

A central theme to life is waking up.  This awakening leads to two important questions: What are you waking up to, and what are you doing prior to awakening?
