When I was fourteen years old I spent a considerable amount of time contemplating all of those immense questions that philosophers have debated for thousands of years.
What is the point of life?
Why are we here?
Who am I?
What do I want?
What makes it all worth it?
Where are we going?
Now some of you who know me are not very surprised, but those are some heavy thoughts for a 14 year old yes?
The frightening thing is, I answered those questions with a knowingness and a conviction that gives me shivers even to this day when I remember it.
The sad thing is, I have been ignoring these answers for many years because they were either too grandiose to come true or to simple so I thought they could not have been right.
While at a workshop called Your Sacred Gifts this past weekend I discovered something inside myself. Something remnant of those contemplations many years ago. I found again the answers and the knowingness to those questions and the conviction to LIVE them. I found a purpose to my life. A purpose that will set me down a path that is bigger than anything I have done before. A purpose that will help me achieve one of my biggest dreams.
“To fundamentally change the way we as humans live our lives so that we can live a more positive, engaged and enlightened life. A life of purpose, contribution, and love for our human sisters and brothers.”
I believe I have come up with a way to make this dream a reality. I will share it with you soon, but first I want to share with you a few of the “hints” that I have been getting over the past few years as to what that purpose might look like. Unfortunately I was not open enough to see those hints when I first saw them.
Now I am.
This video is one of those hints.
