Purpose

Many of us struggle to find our “life purpose” … always searching to hopefully move onto the right path. We are not perfect and we will make mistakes as we try to define who we are and what we are suppose to be doing. Our life purpose may be defined as being single or married, having children or not, family and faith values. Or it could be a career path we chose to take – corporate executive or self-employed, behind the scenes secretary, warehouse, rubbish hauler, lawn and garden, child care, teacher … there are so many different paths. Which one are you going down?

Life is but a dream we renew each day, it is up to us to infuse this dream with light, and to cultivate as best we are able, the ways and habits of love. ~ Kent Nerburn

It is thought that Dr. Raymond Moody wrote the first book on near death experiences, “Life after Life” in 1975. Dr. Moody investigated more than one hundred case studies of people who experienced “clinical death” and were subsequently revived. He found that all of the participants in the survey experienced an unconditional love from a Higher Power (defined in many different ways depending on the individual’s faith). They were shown a clip of their life and then asked two questions, “what have you learned in this lifetime and how have you expanded your capacity to love?” Dr. Moody’s research suggests that our life purpose has two components: expanding our wisdom for coping and capacity to love. Today, are you meeting your life purpose?
