“Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference.” —Jane Goodall
The expansion of happiness in this lifetime is our birthright. Finding what it is we are meant to do and be and identifying that which brings us the greatest happiness is our highest purpose in life. This is our dharma, our truth and, our destiny. Each moment presents us with a unique opportunity to express ourselves in ways that only we can. When we answer the call of our heart in each moment, we have the opportunity to experience pure joy.
Today’s meditation explores what it means to live our lives blissfully in each moment, understanding that the true reward is not the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but the journey along the rainbow itself.
Allow the bliss of being who you are, living as the unique soul you were born to be, carry you along the path of this lifetime and you will be living your life to the fullest.
Our centering thought for today is:
“Bliss be my guide.”
Our Sanskrit mantra for today is:
“Om Varunam Namah.” My life is in harmony with the universe.
Today make a commitment to be who you really are and choose one thing that allows you to express yourself in a way that is like no one else. Sing a song. Paint a painting. Share a heartfelt conversation with a dear friend. Whatever it is that makes your heart sing, choose to engage in one activity that is uniquely yours and enjoy where the journey leads you!
Unique purpose and bliss.
We all have a purpose in life. Actually, it stands to reason that we have many.
There is no one on this planet quite like you, and your purpose, much like yourself, is constantly changing.
Everyday is made with a new purpose for that day. It needn’t be grand or even a single big act or gesture. As long as we begin our days with love in our hearts and passion in our bellies. Following our passions, those things that make our hearts smile, allows us and guides us to each day’s purpose(s). By following our desires, new insights and experiences await us around every corner. By simply being ourselves. How crazy cool is that?
Just by being ourselves, we impact the world. Every action, every smile, every frown. Our true selves need to be nurtured just as much as other people in our lives need to be nurtured. Each of our truest purposes are related to expressing love.
“Purpose is spirit seeking expression.” – Oprah
Purpose is a collection of meaningful experiences where we express our true selves.
So today, take a moment and meditate on your own purpose(s) in life.
Your talents, your skills. And before you say, “But I don’t have any talent!” Stop, we all have talent and skill. We all have that something about us that is unique.
So, consider today’s centering thought, find a comfortable position, and close your eyes. In this moment go within. Go to that inner place of quiet where we experience our connection to the higher Self. Let go of all thoughts and begin to observe the inflow and outflow of your breathe. With each breath allow yourself to become more relaxed, more comfortable and more at peace. Then gently introduce today’s mantra.
Repeat the mantra silently to yourself whenever you find yourself distracted by thoughts, feelings in your body, or noises around you; simply repeat the mantra until you are finished.
What were your impressions? What answers did you receive?
Get out there! Be all that you are! Walk with love in your heart, and move towards today’s purpose. Who knows who will be touched by your presence and your conversation?
