Purpose (Part 1): Someone once told me “you cannot wait for purpose, because there’s nothing and no-one that can give it TO you…you have to create it and endeavour to bring it to fruition”. I have met people in my life who told me they feel lost, especially when they look at the job they’re in to live/survive in this world – they don’t see themselves as contributing to a greater purpose in life, nor do they see a purpose for themselves, for their lives in general.
I have been here myself. I know exactly how this feels. Especially when you reach a point in your life where it feels like you’ve reached the deepest, darkest pit possible and in that state – you don’t see the reason for you, your life and everything/everyone within it….I experienced this a while after my mother passed away. I was a teenager with no practical tools to support me to understand the emotions I was experiencing and how I was living/acting them out. Also, I did not communicate / share with anyone what I was really going through…mainly because I, myself did not understand. In that aloneness, not understanding your own mind, your own emotions/feelings – you can very easily lose yourself in aloneness and drag yourself into such a deep, dark pit where it feels like all is lost…So, in that state - back then, the only way I could define my experience was that I didn’t want to live anymore…
Fortunately, during that time – I met this individual who spoke the words “you cannot wait for purpose, because there’s nothing and no-one that can give it TO you…you have to create it and endeavour to bring it to fruition”. Even though I did not want to live anymore…fortunately it was not to the extent/degree where I would act on the experience, it was just weighing in my Mind as a thought as the only way I could define my experience at the time. So, I looked at the words spoken for myself and the first purpose related point I faced within myself was “find a reason / purpose to LIVE”…this was the question that was in fact driving me, because I was in an experience of not wanting to live anymore, so I had to, for myself, find a purpose / reason to live.
I could have very easily not listened to / reflected on the words spoken – I don’t know where I would have been if I didn’t listen, if I didn’t take a moment with myself and reflect on the words and my life in general. But, I made the decision to give myself purpose, to find that reason to live…and so, I wouldn’t be who I am and what I do today if I did not make that decision for myself then.
Purpose (Part 2): So – the purpose I gave to myself was to become part of something more – to contribute to something in this world that has an impact on people’s lives, on this world as a whole. When I started doing this – becoming part of something more, I established my reason / purpose to live. Because I could see, for myself, how what I do and how I participate with people – contributed to people’s lives and beyond.
What I would like to share within this all is: whenever you feel lost, whenever you feel you have no purpose / reason within yourself and your life – GIVE IT TO YOURSELF. What we have established with Desteni, LIG and the DesteniIProcesses is a support and assistance platform to UNDERSTAND yourself, your mind and additionally become part of something MORE that contributes to many people’s lives as well as this world as a whole.
I would not want for anyone to have to go through what I have early on in my life – where you don’t understand yourself / your own mind to the extent where you cannot even talk to anyone about it. This is what the DIP Lite and DIP Pro supports with: to understand yourself and your own mind, realising how you can in fact change and help yourself up and out of the aloneness / depths of lostness that we often experience. Then, LIG – assists and supports with becoming part of that something more, where you can still do your day-to-day living/survival while contributing to as greater purpose for humanity / this world as a whole.
As I said in the previous post: I wouldn’t be who I am and what I do today if I did not stand up within myself and give myself purpose / reason. So, you don’t know what the future will bring for yourself and your life – but finding that reason / purpose, giving it to yourself is and will be the first step to finding out…
