“When I chased after money, I never had enough. When I got my life on purpose and focused on giving of myself and everything that arrived into my life, then I was prosperous.” Wayne Dyer
I know people who are awakening, people who are starting to look at their lives and their existence from a totally different perspective, people who are no longer putting so much value on their material wealth and possessions, people who still enjoy the comfort that comes with it, but they are no longer so attached to all of those things, and I am really happy to see this shift taking place.
I believe you get to a point where you realize that there is more to life and our existencet han money, wealth, power, fame and that life is not just about having more than everybody else, and you start asking yourself all kind of questions. You start asking yourself about the meaning of life, and you start thinking about the ways you could make a difference in this world. You get to a point where you are no longer absorbed by your own selfish needs, and you start looking for ways to serve others, you start looking for ways to give.
The same thing happened to me, and even though I can’t tell you exactly when it all started, I came to the realization that I am here on this planet not just to eat, work, sleep, shop, get married, make some children, retire, etc., and then wait for my death to come. I am here on this planet because there is a dharma for me to fulfill, and because I have a purpose. I am here on this planet to help others, to leave this world better than it was when I arrived, and every day is mine to I work for that purpose. Every day is a new chance for me to put another brick on the wall.
I can’t tell you exactly what is it that I am here to do, but one thing I know for sure, I am here to help others see their inner beauty, their inner power, and their inner greatness. I am here because I need to make others see how much potential lies in each and every one of us, and I am here to help them unleash their greatness. I know that each individual is unique, we are all capable of great things, things that we can’t even imagine, and if we really want to unleash our greatness, if we really want to unleash our unlimited potential, first of all, we need to start believing in ourselves, we need to believe that there is something wonderful about ourselves, we need to believe that the world needs us, the world needs our gifts, the world needs our talents, because if we don’t believe, nothing good will ever come out of that and we will choose mediocrity over creating a work of art. We will choose to have a workstyle over making a lifestyle.
What Is The Focus Of Your Existence?
The moment we settle for mediocrity, we are in fact telling ourselves and the whole world that we are worthless and that there is nothing special about ourselves. The moment we choose to settle for mediocrity, we are in fact choosing to condemn ourselves to a life and existence of little or no worth; we choose to be less than we are capable of being and we will condemn ourselves to a life of pain, suffering and frustration.
You hear people all the time telling themselves and to those around them that they are failures, that they shouldn’t be here, they shouldn’t be in this world, and that they are mistakes of nature. Let me tell you something: There are no mistakes in this world. Everything that was ever created, was created with a purpose, and the only mistakes are your own self-defeating thoughts and your negative beliefs about yourself. These are the only mistakes, and they weren’t created by nature… They were created by you.
You are the only one who can bring pain upon your shoulders, you and no one else. The moment you tell yourself that you are worthless, the moment you tell yourself that you could never be happy, the moment you tell yourself that the world is full of suffering, that is the moment you choose to attract unhappiness in your life, that is the moment you choose to limit yourself and to condemn yourself to mediocrity. Everything in this world has a purpose, you have a purpose, I have a purpose, my posts here on this blog have a purpose, that beggar from across the street has a purpose, etc. , and it’s up to us to choose to live our lives on purpose or not.
I don’t believe in a God that says: “It’s weekend. I love weekends. O.K. let’s see. I feel so good today… I feel so inspired, I will create something valuable today. In fact, all the children who will be born this weekend will be beautiful, smart, wealthy, famous, successful, etc…” and then, Monday comes, and apparently we aren’t the only ones who hate Mondays: “Oh, I hate Mondays. I am not really in a good mood today. I have a headache, so much work to do… I don’t feel very creative today, in fact, I am not inspired at all. I bet my whole work today will be a failure, a mistake. Well, I guess my work can’t always be excellent, I am allowed to make mistakes, right? All the children that will be born today will be fat, ugly and stupid. I will condemn them all to a miserable life, just because I don’t feel good today. They will get over it, eventually. I hope…”
Sounds pretty crazy right? Of course, it’s crazy, but if you say that you are a mistake of nature, if you say that you are worthless, stupid and of no real value, that means the above monolog could be true right? Change your thoughts, change your beliefs, change the image you have about yourself and your whole life will change. If you make the inside pure, all will be pure.
”God does not play dice.” ~ Einstein
Everything that the Source creates is perfect, we are the ones who choose to see it as imperfect, we are the ones who choose to find faults in ourselves and others, we are the ones who choose to look for the cracks in everything.
