Every one of us is created with the deep desire to grow, find a purpose larger than our self-centered ego and to make a difference no matter where we live or what we do. Ignoring or thwarted from developing this powerful inborn need creates immense agitation, frustration, anger, illness, the death of our spirit and then ultimately the untimely death of oneself.
No matter the age or circumstances we find ourselves, peace only comes from the search for your why?
Your why is not your motivation. Though motivation is from where you begin to plan and set goals. Motivation is always based on goals. As children we are motivated to be good and to earn love through positive affirmation. As you know the train leaves the track early as the pain carried within our parents’, our religion, our teachers, siblings and others are transmitted on us.
To be fair most of this is not intentional, but born out of the disappointments of perceived failure and fear. As we get older, we are challenged to make a difference. This is when the pain accumulated over the years begins to show itself through fear and insecurity. We make choices and life decisions that sometimes prove disappointing or worse. At some point along the journey, we will be called to discover our destiny of purpose. When the student is ready the teacher appears. Hopefully someone has appeared in your life to help you find your center and begin to move mountains.
