What is my purpose?
Today is the second of 4 posts on this.
I first realised my purpose and as a result every one else’s over a year ago, but didn’t fully connect with it until now.
I realised it by reading a quote by Marianne Williamson. “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
How powerful is that, whopper stuff indeed. It is the last few lines that I like the most and it explains what your purpose is. It is to let your light shine, so that you unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
But what does that really mean? This is what took me so long to fully realise and connect with.
What it means is it’s our purpose to go out and have the most epic life ever, because by doing that we give other people permission to do the same. Our purpose is to be happy plain and simple!
So your purpose is to feel good, be happy, because it gives people an example of what they can achieve. If you can do it so can I. If you deserve to be happy so do I.
What happens when you feel down? People notice! They ask you what’s wrong and start to feel sorry for you, which makes them feel bad. Your feeling bad makes others feel bad, without you asking. You don’t want them to worry, but they do and as a result you drag them down. We have all experienced this on both sides. We have felt sorry for others and vice versa. So your emotions affect others.
This also happens on the opposite end. When we feel good, people ask us, what’s different? What are you doing to feel so good?
Sometimes we don’t know, other times we do and we tell them. But generally when we feel good we want to share it. I’m trying this new thing and I feel great you should try it too. This is exactly what I’m hoping to do with this blog. I’m sharing my happiness and the stuff I’ve learned that has worked for me.
This is brilliant the world is a better place because I’m happy. WOW!! Fuck who’d have thought. Are you excited?
Tomorrow is how to manifest happiness, more and more. Day 3
