Your purpose here on earth is JOY. Some of us get so caught up in how we can serve, what’s our purpose, on and on we go, and what we fail to realize is that our service to the world emerges from our deepest joy.
In the past, I’ve gotten so caught up in making my life meaningful. In fact, most new-age thought leaders are going to tell you to “be of service”. Heck, I’ve said it, and ultimately I believe it.
Hang with me for a moment.
Don’t get me wrong, being of service is a noble goal. To be of service to the world. To live a life of meaning. To make your life about others.
I want to offer, though, that connecting to your deepest joy…
When you feel that chilling magic pierce through your body.
When time passes and you didn’t even realize it.
When you express yourself so authentically that people either say LOVE or HATE.
When you could never tire, or even wouldn’t care if you got paid, to do that thing.
…that’s a clue. That’s your zone. The way you’re here to revolutionize things.
It’s YOUR zone of genius, that no one else on the planet can do like you.
As Liz Gilbert says, “You are not required to save the world with your creativity. Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart. The rest will take care of itself.”
Ultimately your life will be of service – in a creative, soul-connecting, heart stirring kind of way when you access your heart’s deepest joy and let your life be an expression of that.
When your work is genuine and real and authentic, IT will serve – in the highest way possible.
It will uplift the collective consciousness.
It will serve humanity’s evolution.
You’re not doing anyone any favors by holding the heavy intent of helping others IF that work doesn’t LIGHT you the fuck up.
People will feel that heavy martyrdom and you will actually have the opposite effect.
Make your intent to access YOU and your creative magic. Imagine if your work was your greatest pleasure. Imagine the kind of vibrations you put out into the world. Imagine the level of inspiration you’d impart on others.
Now that, love, is your sole (soul) purpose.
Be bold. Be big. Be fiercely YOU.
P.S. Leave me a comment below and tell me 1) Have you been held back by this heavy notion of purpose and service? Do you agree that your greatest joy and passion will in turn be your gift to the world?
