I believe we all have this amazing, divine purpose inside of us. If you’re able to sit and get really, really quiet, it will show itself. That’s not always easy for us though. Life is crazy, and it’s hard to silence the chaos.
I invite you to start a small breath practice of your own.
Sit however is comfortable to you. Laying down is even an option. Close your eyes. Breath in, counting 4,3,2,1 and breath out, 4,3,2,1. Continue this cycle. Focusing on the breath. If your mind wanders that’s ok. Simply become aware of that, and send it back to focusing on the breath. Continue this cycle over and over until it feels complete to you.
Notice how you feel before, during and after. Do you sense an inner knowing? Do you feel connected to something deeper? Do you feel angry, irritate, annoyed? There is no wrong answer. Simply allow it to be, and then allow it to pass. As that feeling is not who you are, it does not define you. When you are done, open your eyes. How do you feel? How does your inner body feel? How does your outer body feel? How does your breath feel?
Keeping up with a simple practice like that can really open up the doors to many possibilities in your life. Getting quiet with yourself allows you to discover your inner knowing. To discover God/Universe/source (whatever you call it). Or maybe to simply discover yourself.
If you’re feeling led to something DO IT! If an opportunity presents itself over and over again, don’t pass it up anymore. If you feel an urge to leave something that isn’t serving you, take the steps to do so. It will all lead you to what is meant for you. I’m not saying it’s easy, because it isn’t. But you will be a hell of a lot happier following your wants/needs/desires/dreams.
Ending with some random thoughts…
Let’s all try to be kind human beings to one another. We are all doing our best with what we know to be true. People’s reactions have nothing to do with you. And has everything to do with how they are feeling, and what they are experiencing in their life. Give grace, and view through a loving lens.
