On Purpose

03/11/2014

“The great and glorious masterpiece of humanity

is to know how to live with a purpose.” ~Montaigne

.

“With a purpose, everything in life seems to fall into place. To be “on purpose” means you’re doing what you love to do, doing what you’re good at and accomplishing what’s important to you.

“When you truly are on purpose, the people, resources, and opportunities you need naturally gravitate toward you.

“The world benefits, too, because when you act in alignment with your true life purpose, all of your actions automatically serve others.”

~ Jack Canfield, The Success Principles

.

“You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings.” ~Elizabeth Gilbert

    Hey, Gina,
    I also love your thoughts on purpose. Though, I have to admit… I’m a little fearful it’s becoming harder to live that life. There’s a powerful elite working to concentrate wealth at the top and create a much larger class of desperate workers at the bottom who, to survive and to serve their families, will compromise purpose, money, and health just to make ends meet. The wealthy class needs that to happen to secure ever cheaper labor. What is the peace-loving, justice-loving person’s responsibility?
    I’m a little frustrated just now.

      You have such a caring heart! I feel and understand your frustration. You’ve presented a thought-provoking question that eludes an easy answer. For this peace-loving individual, my own inner drive calls me to hang onto hope, and to share hope with others. I feel it so strongly that it sings in my heart as part of my purpose. And with hopes of offering comfort for your frustrated heart, I offer these words of deep love spoken by one very wise woman to her teen son: “But my truest self had this to say… Honey, get a mindless day-job and save your soul for people and art. Play your drums with all the passion and poetry you can muster… and be kind. Therein is the meaning that remains.” You already know the answer, for it is blooming inside your loving heart. Blessings, Gina
