Living and working with purpose

 

People who have a sense of purpose and who follow their passion are rewarded with joy and energy and are fueled by inspiration. It’s as if they are dancing with life and the Universe rewards the dancers with abundance in all forms. It’s time to put on your dancing shoes, have fun and kick up your heels! ~ Lynn Robinson

Best-selling author Deepax Chopra agrees – following your purpose leads to bliss: “Everyone has a purpose in life…a unique gift or special talent to give to others. And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our spirit, which is the ultimate goal of the gods.”

He writes in his best-selling book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: “Dharma is a Sanskrit word that means, ‘purpose in life.’ The Law of Dharma, says that we have taken manifestation in physical form to fulfil a purpose. According to this law, you have a unique talent and a unique way of expressing it. There is something that you can do better than anyone in the whole world – and for every unique talent and unique expression of that talent, there are also unique needs. When these needs are matched with the creative expression of your talent, that is the spark that creates affluence. Expressing your talents to fulfil needs creates unlimited wealth and abundance and gives your life purpose.”

Finding your purpose

Reflecting on the following questions and activities may provide clues to the things that provide your life with a sense of meaning and purpose:

1. What are the finest qualities, talents and skills you feel you have to contribute to the world?

2. List all the things you love to do while expressing your unique talents. Some hints may be to notice times when you lose all track of time or feel an incredible sense of bliss or just a lovely sense of lightness in your body.

3. What are some possible ways that expressing your qualities, talents and skills may fulfil individual and/or societies unique needs?
