Finding Your Purpose
“Follow your dream as long as you live, do not lessen the time of
following desire, for wasting time is an abomination of the
spirit.” – Plato
I am someone who believes that we were all sent here to planet Earth with a purpose for us to achieve. Whilst it is true that we may not understand fully in this lifetime what that purpose is; we all have an inkling of what it might be! Some have a clear view from the start of their lives what they want to do, for others their genius is easily recognized by others from a very early age.
If you are still in the dark as to what your purpose might be, it doesn’t matter! It may be that you suddenly surprise yourself by finding that you are totally engrossed with a certain subject or cause and you have an “aha” moment and the direction of your life is totally clear from that moment on! Or maybe all it will ever really amount to, is that there are certain things you like to do and become animated and passionate about from time to time.
Regardless of the clarity that you feel in this lifetime about what your purpose is, don’t forget to dream of the way you’d like your life to be and to pursue that dream! If you do, this life will be well lived! As the tapestry of your life is finally seen by you from the other side, if it has never been clear to you before you will see what a wonderful and beautiful finished product your life has become! I believe anything less than following your dreams will result in a wasted life.
