Life, above all else, is the flow of passion and desire, expressing constantly. Each of us carries the energy of passion within us, and with it the potential to connect to the flow of Life. As each of us fully expresses our unique expression of the energy of passion and desire, we connect with that flow. This is why passion feels so good; it is Life giving and Life connecting.
When you are firmly and fully in your passion, you are at One with all Life, and you fit with everything else in existence. When you are in your passion, you are also automatically abundant, because you are connected to the flow of Life that brings you whatever it is that you truly require to continue to express your passion.
The answer to “What is my purpose in Life?”, then, is simply to express your connection to Life by fully expressing your unique passion. In other words, your purpose is to be you, as fully as you can. Your purpose isn’t out there somewhere. Nobody can tell you what it is. (No, not even this post that you’re reading. I can encourage you to fulfill your purpose by following your passion, but I cannot tell you what your passion is.) Your purpose is found right here, right now. It is found in doing whatever makes you feel passionate and alive right now. If that includes reading this post, great. Read it with passion and with excitement. Understand it. Soak it in. However, if reading this post isn’t your current passion, let it go, and go do what is your passion, no matter what it looks like.
This is Life we’re talking about here. Life is infinite possibilities with an infinite number of expressions. It’s ludicrous to think that Life can only express through University degrees, or stable 9 to 5 jobs or any other single type of expression, as our society tends to think. That’s not to say that University degrees and 9 to 5 jobs cannot be the form that someone’s passion takes, however. My point is that it’s up to each of us though, to truly decide for ourselves whether they are our passion or not. It’s time for us to loosen up our definitions on how we think we must live Life. It’s time for each of us follow our true passion with no expectations and see where the flow of Life leads us.
The fact that I am inspired to write this post, in order to remind people to follow their passion, is a sign to me that most of us are not doing so. To me, our society is in a sad state, because we have created it to resist the flow of Life. In other words, we have created it to be a predominantly fearful society, rather than a passionate one.
The majority of the members of our society resist their passion, because they have been taught to invalidate themselves and their expressions of passion, by association. So it’s no wonder that they anxiously look instead to how others tell them to live their lives. As a result of this, many people live desperately while feeling like crap day in and day out, wondering why Life turns out the way it does. The answer, of course, is that they aren’t really living Life; they are resisting it. That’s why they feel like crap. They are afraid of following their passion, which means they are afraid of Life itself, ludicrous as that may seem. Yet it is ultimately their fear that is making them sick and killing them; not their passion.
One of the most wonderful gifts of Life is that each of us has a direct connection to the flow of Life. It’s also equally wonderful that the expression of this connection is unique for each of us, which means there are an infinite number of ways to express this connection. Isn’t it time for each of us to acknowledge the gift of this connection by expressing our passion as fully as we can?
