We all want to feel like we have a purpose. Not having purpose is not being allowed to be part of something bigger and more meaningful, and it makes you feel like what you are doing is if not meaningless then less important.
There is a lot of talk about higher purpose and that we all have one. I am sure you have heard of it. It is hard to miss if you are moving in spiritual circles.
The higher purpose is suppose to be that one thing you were born to do, that one thing you came here to achieve and fulfil, why you entered this life or even choose to enter it. There are a lot of people who are really confused about what their higher purpose is, and who are paying a lot of good money to have someone help them find it only to remain just as confused as they start out or clinging onto something that does not really suit them after all.
I believe that we do not arrive here with some sort of higher purpose that we first have to figure out before we can fulfil it. That seems insane to me. We do not arrive here with a purpose to heal or to teach or whatever. Some of us are just better at those things either by nature or by the way our experiences have shaped us, especially our early experiences life.
I believe that the only purpose we have on this earth and in this life is to experience and to grow from those experiences. We simply come into this life for the purpose of living our lives, having the experiences we choose or don’t choose to have, and to grow from them in a way that we benefits us the most.
Having a purpose and a higher purpose is really that simple.
