FINDING OUR LIFE PURPOSE, self help article by Robert Elias Najemy

Self help article:

Each of us has incarnated to play a specific role. When we find our special role and play it with love, we experience contentment and happiness. When we lose contact with our life purpose, or do not have the courage to live it, we experience discontent and sometimes depression.

WE MAY NEED TO MAKE CHOICES

In some cases, we may need to make choices between the following:

a. Money or meaningfulness
b. Comfort or creativity
c. Security or evolution
d. Social “success” or social responsibility
e. Superficial happiness or real inner contentment
f. Satisfying others expectations or our own inner voice or wisdom.

Let us examine what we can do to regain contact with our life purpose.

1. FREEDOM FROM SOCIAL PROGRAMMING

We need to free ourselves from our social conditioning concerning what kind of work has value. We need to be free to select the type of work and life style which suits us regardless of what others think of our choices. If our loved ones have a problem with our choices, we need to have enough inner confidence to lovingly help them understand that we are simply asking for the freedom to pursue that which fulfills us. Often the simplest roles can offer us the greatest spiritual lessons and self-satisfaction. Take, for example, the roles of motherhood or fatherhood. Not much importance is given to them today because many feel that working in an office has more prestige or creativity. Yet, there is no more important and demanding role than that of parenthood.

2. OVERCOMING FEAR

We will need to overcome any fears that might obstruct our ability to give ourselves wholeheartedly to our goals. Such as fear of
a. Failure
b. What others think.
c. That we may not make it financially
d. That we may not be perfect in what we do
e. That we might make a mistake.

We are all in a process of evolution. Making mistakes is natural when we are learning and creating. It is important to understand that we are worthy and lovable even though we are not perfect and even when we not have perfect results.

3. SUCCESS IS NOT REQUIRED

It is imperative that we free ourselves from excessive concentration on success as a measure of our self-worth. If our motives are as pure as possible and our efforts our best for our present stage of evolution then the results do not matter. Christ, Socrates, Gandhi and Martin Luther King all lived their life purpose but were all killed by the societies in which they lived.

4. CONTACT WITH OUR INNER VOICE

We will need to develop a deeper contact with our inner voice through prayer, silence, and meditation. Then we will hear the “small voice” of inner wisdom and know, within ourselves, the role that we have come to play.

5. TUNING UP OUR INSTRUMENT

Even if we know our role, we may not be able to play it effectively if we are frequently ill, tired, nervous, fearful or upset. A healthy body and clear mind can be maintained through healthy natural foods, exercises, breathing techniques, deep relaxation and positive thinking. With daily practice of these techniques, our bodies and minds will be capable of expressing our inner beauty and creativity.

6. SURRENDER TO THE DIVINE

An instrument must surrender completely to its player. Finding our role in life means being open to whatever role is useful to the universe at each place and time. We need to let go of egocentric needs and realize that at times we will be called upon to do “great works”, and at others, we will be assigned simple task.

7. PRAY FOR GUIDANCE

We can pray for purification and guidance as instruments of divine harmony here on earth. Through prayer and sincerity, we can become transformers of spiritual energy into beneficial works here on the material level. Through our daily meditations, we can receive spiritual energy, which we can then share with those around us in the form of love, compassion, understanding and service.

8. BELIEF IN OURSELVES AND FOLLOWING OUR SATISFACTION

We need to believe in our inner feelings and what brings us happiness. Happiness and inner contentment are signs that we are aligned with our life purpose.

9. USING OUR TALENTS

We need to get in touch with and develop our inherent talents. They will guide us to what we have come to do.
