You may be playing a variety of roles in your personal and social life, but have you ever thought about your life’s ultimate purpose? Your life’s purpose is not what others tell you. It is what you discover for yourself. When you sit quietly and perform higher level of meditation, you would reach the depths of your inner self that guides you toward your real direction in life. Although it is a lifelong process of discovery, your inner self-reflection can unfold some pages of your life every time you open its book.
In fact, it is important to find your purpose in life if you want to synchronize your inner self with your outer life. A person always remains dissatisfied if he/she is not able to find their ultimate goal in life. However, the missing links about your life’s purpose are only found inside you. The need is to give you some peaceful time to reflect upon your own identity, abilities and desires. Your inner self will itself let you know what you are capable of and want to do. You can learn all this from your own ways of life. Find the components of your inner self that also express in your outer life.
Let your inner self help you in observing what interests you and what you desire. Meditating alone can help you realize the goals you wish to achieve in life. Your inner self gives you feedback on very action you take in your life. It also lets you know whether you pursue a goal with self-interest or not. While exploring various actions, you arrive at a few that are more appealing and motivating to you. Focus on such actions that you are really enthusiastic to perform. An analysis of such actions lets you know whether a given path is true for you or not.
You simply need to infuse your emotions and thoughts with positive life energy that comes from the spirit of compassion, kindness and generosity for others. When you do that, you are actually putting your ego aside and looking at your life’s path in a clearer manner. This shows you the real direction in which you would want to move. If you are doing something without any selfish motive and with complete zest, it is the thing you want to do. This is your life’s ultimate purpose to which you can be devoted.
Connecting with your inner self can help you find this purpose quickly. While it is not very easy to do, you may try giving yourself time when you are not thinking much about your outer life. Grab a space in a corner of your house where there is complete peace. Remove all disturbances and noise before sitting there and going deep into your inner self. Then, focus only on your breath and emotions. Forget everything about your environment and concentrate on self. This will help you observe several aspects of your life about which you had never bothered.
Your inner self will automatically reveal things that were unknown to you. It will show you the connections between your worldly choices and your reasons to take up those choices. Simply let these thoughts move around so you may understand the compatibility and incompatibility between your inner and outer worlds. Sometimes, you take up choices by force while you are unwilling to work on them. This leads to incompatibility between your inner and outer lives. Thus, you should try to find the choices that make you congruent as a person. Such self-reflection will lighten up the path to your life’s ultimate motive.
