On Understanding True Purpose

It is fair to say that at some point in all our lives, we have had someone there urging us on to get a job done: it could have been a school teacher, our parents, or our boss. The fact is that throughout life there is a core part of our relationships with each other that involves generating and ensuring the movement of our bodies towards an end result – such as a school project, the grass being cut at home, a financial deadline for your company. These are a normal part of life and we all seem to know pretty well how to respond to them with the physicality that we hold.

But what if there is a call to action and no one is asking you to do it – when the choice and the reason to move your body has come from you?

When I observe Serge Benhayon and his family, I see this being lived. I see people who are responding to a call that is far greater than the immediacy of job satisfaction. These are people who are willing to work long hours at whatever task is being asked of them, with the full understanding that what they do is for everyone.

If we take Serge Benhayon as an example, you will see that everything he has done, all the work he has produced, has come from his choice to do so. There has not been another person making him do it. The choice to move in the way he does, which produces the work he gives to everyone, comes from him. And even when Serge and his family are criticised by those who do not understand him or his work, he continues to offer himself completely to all that he does without arrogance or the need for recognition. He simply carries on.

I find this incredibly inspiring because in life in general, are we not taught to move our bodies in a way that is focussed on doing things mainly for recognition and personal gain? That is, to act in response to the promise of some kind of personal reward? Which I have noticed can lead to thoughts of – why would I ever do anything for any other reason than for what it will bring to me? And these thoughts can be incredibly subtle, and sometimes they may even be cloaked in acts of ‘good-will’, but still with the underlying intention and motivation to be seen, recognised, and accepted.

However, what I have also come to realise is that this way of interacting with the world can actually be a terrible trap that keeps us all back from truly expressing ourselves and from bringing everything we have to offer to our families and communities.

For example, I have experienced that when I move my body with the intent of doing something that is purely for self-gain, this can actually generate a lot of motivation, activity and momentum which can feel like purpose. And so on we go, trundling through life making things happen and gaining the rewards promised by those activities and their inevitable outcomes. But in the meantime, illness rates are skyrocketing out of control and diseases are so complex now that the medical industry is struggling to keep up with what is being presented by our modern human bodies. And to add to all of that, as if that wasn’t enough, we have more psychological illnesses than ever before, along with extreme human atrocities being carried out by governing groups in some parts of the world.

So, my question is: is it really working to have movement that is driven by self-gain?

However, if there is no self in the outcomes of what we do, then why do it? And who is asking us to do it? And who will be there to see it? And why do it if no one knows?

What I have observed from being with the Benhayon family and especially with Serge Benhayon, is that without the pressure from an outer source that promises a reward, the only thing left is absolute, true and coming from the core of who you are: it is your Divine or Universal PURPOSE.

Therefore, You Do What Needs To Be Done, Simply Because It Is To Be Done.

Which means that you are free to move in a way that is not driven by the ideals that are promised, but by a greater call that is universal in its intent. Therefore and with this, you are accountable only to yourself and the choices that you have made which will reflect your intentions – whether they are for the all or just for your own private life.

That is not to say that no one is to have a well cared for life, as self-love is in fact the cornerstone of care for each other. Self-love indeed negates the need to be identified by what we do, allowing us to openly care because that is what is required and not because it determines who we are or our value. Your worth and your value need not be hinged on the outcomes of your actions, but in close relationship with the essence of your being.

And with this relationship we can in fact then choose to ask – ok, what is the purpose of my being in this place at this time… knowing that you have the resources to give what will be asked for? This is amazing, but true. You do in fact have everything that is required for any given moment to be an evolutionary moment for everyone involved. Your universal voice is the one that matters.

So, isn’t it worth exploring what you can contribute when what you contribute has a universal purpose behind it, one that expands and evolves every single person on earth, including and starting with you?

Aren’t you worth exploring the purpose that is available when you say no to that outer source that tells you what you are worth by measuring what you can achieve?

If there is one thing in this life that we can all equally apply ourselves to, regardless of race, nationality or culture, it is to establish a relationship with our true and divine purpose.

The essential core of this teaching for each of us is however, to establish what are our motivating factors as we move and walk through life, and to do this we must be willing to see all the outcomes and the consequences of all our individual and collective choices – because with this awareness we can learn by and constantly re-adjust the choices we are making.

Coming back to true purpose is a journey, but not one that is impossible or only reserved for the special few. It is there for everyone equally. It is there for you. And with an open and loving heart, which will give you an open and loving mind, we are able to learn from and be inspired by the incredible role models we have such as the Benhayon Family and the many other people who have lived and continue to live here throughout time in accordance to the true purpose that is available to us all.

  1. This has been on my mind lately as it is becoming very obvious how I have been more willing to just do what everybody tells me to do like work for my study, job etc. and that I put that before anything else and sometimes also use as a excuse to not do something that I love and know is important too in that moment. I am not saying we should not do our assignments or projects but there is a fine line between avoiding of what we truly can offer the world and not doing enough for our study for instance.

  2. Serge Benhayon and his family are very real-down-to-earth-role models that reflect that there is another way to live, move, express and communicate without any reservations or old protective ideals and beliefs held in place, that keep us firmly entrenched in a way of being that does not re-connect to the divine essence found equally-so within all.
    “And even when Serge and his family are criticised by those who do not understand him or his work, he continues to offer himself completely to all that he does without arrogance or the need for recognition. He simply carries on”.

  3. Serge Benhayon has reawakened my understanding of the purpose of life, to live, to the best of my ability, in obedience to the Divine Plan as humanity retraces its way back to the truth of where we come from

  4. The Benhayon family lives and moves in true purpose constantly. Without this reflection I would not have thought it possible to commit to life in this way and discover the magic that unfolds when we embrace true purpose.

  5. To understand true purpose is to have a relationship with divinity, which is by its very nature a source beyond this human realm. To have a relationship with divinity is to know what true purpose is on this earth.

  6. ‘what is the purpose of my being in this place at this time… knowing that you have the resources to give what will be asked for?’ Great question for me to ponder on having in the last few months moved location knowing that there is a reason for everything.

  7. Whenever we speak, a ripple of sounds goes out and because we are all inextricably within the whatever it is that makes up the universe, every voice is universal as it adds or contributes to the vaster greater whole. And herein lives great purpose.

  8. Doing what needs to be done, simply because it is there to be done.. when we start to apply this principle to our lives and test it out, it becomes apparent very quickly where our limits are – usually self imposed from our minds, with the ‘that’s enough’ thoughts. Our bodies are capable of working long hours, and actually can feel pretty vitalised after working a long day – but only if we are with our bodies and treating them well and being consistent as we work. When we don’t look after ourselves as we work, the long hours/doing lots of work pattern doesn’t then sustain us, and we end up craving downtime in order to try and compensate for the disregarding way we’ve been working in.

  9. It is quite a shift we make when we move from doing things for self-gain and reward, to working in a way that benefits everyone with no need for recognition or acceptance, but just going with rolling up our sleeves and getting on with what needs done, and as we do, more is given.

  10. ‘is it really working to have movement that is driven by self-gain?’ Great question Shami, and asks me to check in and feel if there is any trace of this still playing out in my life? As my old way of living was very much about was about self-gain; and what can I get out of this!

  11. ‘when Serge and his family are criticised by those who do not understand him or his work, he continues to offer himself completely to all that he does without arrogance or the need for recognition. He simply carries on’. Serge Benhayon does carry on, this is true and so inspiring and a simple reminder to live what we know is true.

  12. Brilliant blog Shami, I love reading it again. True purpose is always calling us, but do we listen to its messages and signs? It is only recently that I started to understand the power of true purpose and I understand that the distorted version of purpose needs to be exposed and discarded. By understanding and applying true purpose we are deeply empowered in every way.

  13. “…you are accountable only to yourself and the choices that you have made which will reflect your intentions – whether they are for the all or just for your own private life.” – This question of what is true purpose and how to live in alignment with our divine purpose has been a big one for me. The quote from Shami’s great sharing here really seems to sum it up in a way that keeps it simple- our choices are either self-centred for recognition or gain or they are in full consideration of everyone. Once we identify what ideals and beliefs we have around what is behind our choices in an honest way, we can move into more true purpose, I feel.

  14. So, I am not the only person who needs to get nudged to complete sometimes? I can feel arrogance running through me at the thought of bashing myself about procrastinating. With this judgement and criticism, I somehow put myself above others, think of myself as mighty because I “know better” and I “shouldn’t do” these things – yet, I am just like every other human being and that realisation actually inspires me to start making changes in this pattern of mine – it takes away the pressure and brings me to the ground.

  15. ‘True purpose’ to me is a feeling that come from within and without any need for self-gain but something that is undertaken for the benefit of all. Once connected and committed to true purpose “You Do What Needs To Be Done, Simply Because It Is To Be Done”, and it is done without any expectations but with the knowing that there is always a reason for it. The reason may not be obvious to begin with but eventually it will be revealed, sometimes surprisingly so.

    1. Absolutely Ingrid and I am starting to recognise what is true purpose and what is about self-gain, recognition and complication. Purpose has no drive, images or complications because if it does then we lose the true meaning of purpose.

  16. I love the fact that we are genetically hardwired for purpose… We can feel this effect and of course when it is not there we can feel that most definitely as a species as well.

  17. Thank you Shami, it’s such a supportive blog to read and a topic relevant to us all. A great line “You do in fact have everything that is required for any given moment to be an evolutionary moment for everyone involved.” This really highlights what purpose is, always about evolution and what we can bring to support the all to evolve. Serge Benhayon’s life is such a great living study of what true purpose means.

  18. True purpose is for me very much about the quality behind the way I’m expressing or doing something, and this applies to all areas of life. So like you say it’s not an attachment to a specific end point or goal without appreciating the reason behind why I’m doing or saying what I am and whether it’s just about me or encompassing everyone… And it’s something that I am forever learning with, and bringing myself back to – the energetic quality in how I’m expressing.

    1. Great Fiona to bringing it back to the energetic quality in how we are expressing and moving, perfect for me to read today, as I know when I speak I can go into old patterns of speaking too fast or losing myself in my story! It is a work in progress but my awareness is on it!

  19. Often when someone wants us to get a job done, such as kids being asked to clean their room or a task to be completed at work, it can seem small, menial and unimportant or lacking in the big picture. However, when we get to feel the responsibility we all carry towards our fellow man, the level of harmony and care we take in our lives which ripples out and affects everyone else, then this is a very different story. I feel we need to be re-connected to this bigger purpose from the beginning of our lives so no task ever feels menial or unimportant.

    1. That is a beautiful statement Fiona because we can think of purpose as changing the world with some grand gesture or producing something like a book or other product, when everything we do can actually have purpose when we connect to and do it with the quality of the soul, and knowing every move affects the whole of humanity via the ocean of energy we live together in.

  20. ‘Your worth and your value need not be hinged on the outcomes of your actions, but in close relationship with the essence of your being’. This has been life changing for me, to stop the constant doing, and the need to be more and improve my life, but to actually accept all of me including my imperfections has supported me greatly to value myself and that I do count in this world and have so much to share.

  21. Knowing and seeing that we are where we are to learn whatever it is we need to to return back to living the love we are from and are as well as being a reflection to those around us brings a real sense of purpose to life and, for me anyway, a reason to live rather than just trying to get through the day which is such a stark contrast and difference.

  22. ‘But what if there is a call to action and no one is asking you to do it – when the choice and the reason to move your body has come from you?’ Sounds simple, but yet, it is only since I have been a student of The Way of the Livingness presented by Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, that I have begun to be true to myself which automatically impacts on how I move my body, which is with much more awareness.

    1. Me too – so often I have waited for others to tell me what to do and sought recognition making sure what I am doing is right yet all of this is void of love as I am seeking something rather than simply living the love that I am.

  23. I have found that only by building the relationship with myself and connecting to my divine essence is giving me enough foundation to continuously see and renounce all the many aspects of needing recognition, acceptance and confirmation in all that I choose.

    1. Renouncing any form recognition is the best thing we can do. It opens up the space for us to appreciate, confirm, move and express in true purpose.

  24. It takes a whole lot of honesty and self love to be willing and able to uncover all the layers of self that are motivating us through life. There then comes a point in life where we have to look back and admit that all along, even in the highest good, underneath it was self.

  25. There is such a massive difference when we feel true purpose and gain the sense of why we are here. Yes we can make life about work, family etc.. but when we actually start to understand energy and how the quality of the way we live directly affects everybody else and everything we do we start to see there is far more at play than purely what our eyes can see. So work no longer is simply a place to go to to make money but rather a place to connect with others, to show the multidimensionality we all come from, that there is more to life than purely the mundaneness we so easily get caught up into. And with family that there is a purpose more than just the picture and happy families, but rather there is an opportunity to return back to Soul, to live in a way that fosters love and constantly calls each other to live more of the love they are. It is a game changer and brings so much more to life taking it from 2D to 4D.

    1. That feels a huge shift and forward thinking to go to work not for money but to connect with others, to all work together, to be in service and do whatever needs done in order to evolve us all and return to a way of living that is Soul impulsed which is our true natural living way.

      1. It sure is a big shift yet it is a completely natural thing to do! I know for me when I am simply at work connecting with people and doing my job then I always exceed my sales targets without trying to force or push sales. And the moment I focus on sales or money I find it really hard and my sales fall which is interesting and shows people generally do want to connect and buy from people rather than getting caught up thinking it is purely about price.

    2. Thank you James for what you have shared here, it brings true purpose to family and work when we make it about the return to soul.

      1. It sure does otherwise I find without purpose it is easy to get distracted and caught up in things and essentially not really achieving a lot other than getting through the day. Bring purpose in and suddenly there is a reason to be doing what you are doing, which is much greater than purely the physical outplay.

  26. Doing things for recognition or acceptance can be so incredibly subtle.. often barely perceptible. Yet there is a huge difference in the quality of something when we do it in full connection to ourselves, through our bodies, or disconnected and out of a drive to not feel that emptiness, to not dive beneath it. The disconnected way further feeds the separation between us and others, but the connected way is simple, and full in and of itself, not needing validation or recognition from anything beyond it. To do something in that flow feels expansive, and with an ease.

  27. I must say that a call for action from my body, rather than being told to do something has an unarguable effect on me. It is like it is set in stone and although I may briefly try to wriggle out of it, the feeling of that call is too strong to not heed. When I do it is always an expansion of what I would normally choose and is super supportive for myself and other people. Life would be very simple if I allowed and acted on more of these feelings.

  28. I agree Shami it is very inspiring to see someone living with a purpose that is equally for all, and not about themselves, not doing things for recognition or to be popular or just for their own comfort, and to be living with that universal kind of purpose so consistently, in all areas of their life, it reminds me what life is really about.

  29. It is amazing to be given the gift of seeing what true purpose is, even though it may not be something that I can live in full just now, I know it to be there as a potential. And this I find very consolidating, and confirming of who I am and of who we all are as the journey continues and we take each day one at a time.

  30. Living with purpose and doing what needs to be done without recognition is something I have been incredibly inspired by the Benhayon family from when I first met them 10 years ago. I had not seen anyone live like this before, “These are people who are willing to work long hours at whatever task is being asked of them, with the full understanding that what they do is for everyone.” Having a purpose to our life and our movements supports health and well-being. Lack of purpose and commitment can lead to many different health issues as you say, could dementia be one of them?

  31. True, Divine or Universal purpose – I thank Serge Benhayon for introducing this to me and many others as part of the Way of The Livingness teachings – ‘without the pressure from an outer source that promises a reward, the only thing left is absolute, true and coming from the core of who you are: it is your Divine or Universal PURPOSE.

  32. Shami I very much appreciated your words today, true purpose hasn’t always been clear to me, reading today was like wiping down a foggy window and getting more clarity on the topic. A great line here “a universal purpose behind it, one that expands and evolves every single person on earth, including and starting with you”. This gives true meaning to life.

  33. It is very inspiring to feel the purpose shown by the Benhayon family and I am beginning to feel more consistently within me. There is no drama or fanfare, you just move as it needs to be done with and from love.

    1. The other thing I notice as I too begin to feel divine purpose is how simple life becomes because you do just get on and action what is needed. There is nothing else that needs to be bought into, thought of or considered.

  34. What I am discovering is that even getting something done to get it out of the way and have it complete, is still done for recognition and for myself – I want to do it not so that it’s done for everyone, and the completion, space and expansion that then makes way for, but because I want the satisfaction of having ticked something off a list, of having proved to myself that I can do it – and because I want the relief of having one less thing on my plate. But what if we saw life from a space and not time perspective? How would this change our relationship with the things that are there for us to do? Would it not be a more harmonious way to live, to allow things to flow to us, prioritising the urgent things and the quality of which we do them in, instead of the lethargy and drain of feeling bad about to-do lists that are always incomplete?

    1. I wonder what it would be like to be in life from a love perspective? Regardless of what we did it did not get done our priority was just to be love and emanate that quality throughout each day and night. Everyday an endless flow of love.

  35. When we move to pursue something that is for self-gain we are trapped into a pattern that is deeply familiar. We are not free; we do not move in freedom because freedom is moving without dancing to the music of known patterns, which limit not just the quality of the movement but also pollutes its impress and directs all our attention to one point; the point that will give us the benefits we are moving towards.

  36. Thank you Shami, it’s a very powerful read. I particularly liked this line “You do in fact have everything that is required for any given moment to be an evolutionary moment for everyone involved.” When we consider that every move we make can truly support humanity to expand and evolve, whether we are on our own or with others, due to the quality of energy we are expressing, then we are in true purpose.

  37. What I get to feel from this very powerful blog is that it is not about us as individuals but about the whole everyone working to re connect back to what we have lost. A bit like how the honey bees work there is no individuality in a bee hive, just a collective to get the work done. Honey bees are all about purpose. And that is why they are there in nature to reflect back to humanity a true way of working together for the greater good of the all.

  38. “Coming back to true purpose is a journey, but not one that is impossible or only reserved for the special few. It is there for everyone equally.” I love this Shami. We can be doing any job and have true purpose as long as we aren’t making it about self but about others, serving humanity

  39. Our bodies literally love purpose… And focus, and the commitment, interestingly enough all the words that people shy away from a lot of the time… And of course there is no coincidence.

  40. Understanding and accepting that life is not about me, at all, but about something so much greater that we are all part of, is inspiring and amazing – it makes me want to commit more to life and to everything, not in a way where I can get something from it, but simply because I can feel the purpose of me being me. We all have something totally unique to bring to each other, all equally needed.

  41. Honestly if we do anything with a purpose to self-gain we are always sacrificing or compromising something. We may not see this clearly because everyone is doing it to a certain extent and it has been made normal. But our bodies know what is true and not true.

  42. Building a relationship of honesty with ourselves can really help us to see where we may be doing things that appear on the surface to be ‘good-will’ but underneath are still coming from a need or drive for recognition… With that honesty it’s not about judging who we are by our actions but having more clarity on the way we are doing things and are in relationship with all others so that we can be more authentically true to our essence.

  43. Its an interesting thing purpose. Its much deeper that doing or completing a job. Its everything, Its how we do all that we do and bring all that we to everything we do. Nothing is more or less that anything else. From cleaning the bathroom, taking out the rubbish to meeting a client or nursing a babe. Because we are bringing ourselves to each and every moment.

    1. Jennifer it could be said that our true purpose is to be who we truly are in whatever activity we are doing, and all that we need to know will be present for all we connect to.

  44. Shami I found reading this at times difficult, I was looking for a distraction, but it was because it can be confronting realising my own investments in a personal agenda, when the ability is actually there to live in purpose for the all.

  45. I am learning how there is purpose in everything that we do because we are all connected with eachother all of the time, and so never is any one person actually isolated from the rest of the world, which means that we are all responsible for what we bring, so why not make what we each bring to be full of true purpose?

  46. There’s nothing more light and fulfilling than working with purpose. No need of looking for recognition when we offer ourselves in full

  47. I used to think having purpose was about finding the right job that fit all my skills, and then when I did, I would be joyful and content. I never did find that job, but what you have described here Shami is how purpose is much bigger than that.

  48. Moving with the intension of self-gain does not produce a quality of movement. In my experience this is when I go into the ‘doing’ rush and tension. Moving with the intension of connection to self and thereby connecting to all others as a result, creates a movement in quality that encompasses the all.

  49. If there is a true purpose with consideration, for everyone equally then whatever is required will be supported and simple. If it is for self-gain or interest then things can become complicated very quickly. The difference is great to experience because it offers a stop moment to re-connect and start afresh.

  50. Thank you Shami. I have noticed how easily doing something for ourselves sneaks in, it can be very subtle indeed. We can think we are doing it for others but if there is any part of us wanting to be special and being seen for bringing it, is it then truly for purpose of serving us all as humanity?

  51. “If there is one thing in this life that we can all equally apply ourselves to, regardless of race, nationality or culture, it is to establish a relationship with our true and divine purpose”.
    This is the key Shami, establishing a relationship, with and living, our true purpose.

  52. I find it interesting how it is possible to live as if nothing that we do matters to anyone else, that we can live un-affecting of others, when in fact everything we do affects everyone else because everything is made of energy first before it is manifested in to matter or even thought. So our movements are of the most importance because they contribute to the very fabric of our life here on earth which is shared between us all.

  53. Shami coming back to read this blog was meant to be as it is a call to brotherhood and for us all to unite under the true purpose of building a community that can get as all on the fast track path to evolution up and out of here back to where we come from.

  54. What I find super interesting is that bringing true purpose to all that we do and how we move brings a level of purpose that far exceeds any form of self and reconnects us to a much simpler flow and rhythm for how we then move and live life. Connecting to our movements with purpose then becomes much more about our presence and quality of connection and what happens thereafter shows a much more beautiful flow with life rather than against it.

  55. Life flows so differently when you connect to what needs to be done and is there to done rather than what you can do to get a reward out of it. I find the focus is taken away from me and suddenly any issues I have become insignificant when compared to what is facing the whole of humanity. And this is where I find true purpose comes from as soon as I make life about everyone I see people need a reflection of the love that they are and then everything else takes care of itself.

  56. There is no great reward than living a life in line with our true and divine purpose. The Universal does not fail to deliver!

  57. Life without purpose is flat, functional and mundane. Bring in purpose, true purpose that encompasses not just oneself or family – but everything and everyone and life lights up in the most incredible way. And it is not what we do, but the quality of how we do it.

  58. Living with true purpose takes away any needs or pictures that the self creates, this then allows space for us to connect to the expansiveness and oneness we are all truly from.

  59. ‘Which means that you are free to move in a way that is not driven by the ideals that are promised, but by a greater call that is universal in its intent’ And sometimes we are called to move in a direction we didn’t expect. I’m finding it easier to recognise the call when it comes and say yes.

  60. The key here is to unlock that doorway to that innate true purpose that dwells within us all, and the key to this door is words spoken from that true purpose, as they have the configuration that implicitly fit the lock in that self imposed door.

    1. Absolutely Chris. And once we have unlocked the door to our innate true purpose and bring that forth, we can begin to apply the same qualities and values that we apply to that purpose to everything else that we do, so that no matter what it is we always include everyone and exclude no one.

      1. Indeed Sandra, and in the inclusiveness lies the innate sphericality of the interconnectedness of all things which is, by its very nature, all-inclusive.

  61. In answer to your question Shami ‘So, my question is: is it really working to have movement that is driven by self-gain?’, I would say ‘no, when we have movement that is driven by self gain then it is only the individual self that will gain and if it is only the individual self that has gained then there has been no real self gain at all because we are not individuals we are part of the collective whole and so unless the collective whole gains there can be no true gain of any kind.

  62. When we are motivated by self in any way then we can’t help but bring a fragmented and narrowed reality to everyone else but when there is no self in what we bring then we bring everyone else to themselves.

  63. A brilliant and inspiring call to Brotherhood Shami. The fact is we all already read energy, whether we are fully aware of it or not, we sense the quality of vibration in any one, as such the purpose behind it. We do sense what is needed at any time. This calls to question why do we not pay attention to or are honest about what we are reading? What is our purpose in life? Are we willing to evolve, to surrender to truth, to Brotherhood or are we simply solely focussed on bettering our lives alone, regardless of the quality of life being live as a whole, as a humanity? For at the end of the day it is the vibration we choose to align to that delivers the intention, as such the quality of live we are living. We are Souls first, equally so, here to live our Soulfullness through our bodies. Is it not then our purpose the live in connection to our Soulfulness as such in be moved in a way that is in honor of and impulsed by our innate sense of the Oneness we are from.

  64. “You do in fact have everything that is required for any given moment to be an evolutionary moment for everyone involved.” So true. In every moment we have a choice – to be love, or not. And if we choose to be love, we have access to everything we need and so much more.

  65. Learning to live with true purpose allows all the complications that keep us in the individuality to drop away, along iwth the drive and stress and anxiousness.. and the rest… and life becomes an ever deepening journey to re-knowing the truth of who we all are.

  66. When there is no purpose there is a lack of ‘get up and go’ or a lot of uncertainty and delay. When I feel true purpose I feel like a fire has been lit under me that is energising whereas the untrue purpose (under ‘have to’s / should do’setc) fires up action but it is draining of energy.

  67. Having grown up with the belief that to look after me first and others second was being selfish it has taken many years to come to a place when I know that it is paramount for me to care for me deeply and without reserve. I feel that this placing of myself as unworthy of being cared for in this way also created a barrier to unravelling my true purpose in this life. But this all changed and was welcomed when I began attending presentations by Serge Benhayon, presentations that contained so much wisdom and common sense that I could not ignore. As my care for me increased I soared to the top of my ‘who to care for list’ and there I stay, finally knowing who I am and what my purpose is in this world.

  68. Thank you Shami – I loved reading this again as there is always such a strong empowerment to be felt when we acknowledge our divine purpose as part of the all. Living from a place of knowing that everything we do counts towards the greater whole bears great responsibility and leads to feeling true universal purpose.

  69. Discovering True Purpose is like uncovering the ‘fountain of youth’ …. It is incredibly healing, and it is as if we are doing exactly what we are designed to do

  70. We think we are free to move but when reality sets in with the choices we have made and we are stopped with health conditions or lifestyles setbacks there is no doubt that there is something much grander than we are willing to listen to at play. Could this be the universal call to purpose?

  71. “Therefore, You Do What Needs To Be Done, Simply Because It Is To Be Done.” Being so driven by recognition it can be tricky to understand how it is possible to do something without any self-gain, but if we focus on being more loving and caring of ourselves, stay open to the possibility and willing to feel it for ourselves, little by little, true purpose bubbles up from within.

    1. I agree Lucy – and true service does not come from a place of being good or charitable, as this too resembles self-gain, just in a less obvious form.

  72. “you are free to move in a way that is not driven by the ideals that are promised, but by a greater call that is universal in its intent.” What an awesome difference this is. How many of us move in this way? Not many. It is up to us to drop the interest in self and the want for recognition in favour of truly serving in this world that desperately needs it.
