The sixth of the seven essential truths I have incorporated into my daily practices is recognizing “your life purpose is your North Star on your journey.” Because I keep this in mind and practice, I live a healthy, fulfilling and blessed life. You can too.
The sixth truth: Your life purpose is your North Star on your journey.
The practice: Keep your eye on the ball.
This truth is about “What are you doing on the planet? Why are you here?” As you start to understand and realize who you really are, the next obvious question that you’ll probably continue to ask yourself along your journey is, “What am I doing here? Am I moving towards anything? And what does that mean?”
Ask Yourself Questions
I think it’s important here to pause and ask yourself that very question, “Where am I? What am I doing and why?” The first thing that comes forward for most of us is that what we’re doing is usually motivated by a wound. I’ll explain that. Who I am being today, my false self, who I’m not, is being or doing something as a result of something I learned as a kid. “I want to be a doctor when I grow up. My mother wants me to be this. My father wants me to be that. If I’m in real estate, I’ll make a lot of money.” The choices we make are typically coming out of a survival mode, which is not who we are.
