Why are we here?
Updated: Sep 8, 2022
This question becomes very urgent and relevant in the face of all that is happening in the world. It appears we must realign and unite as a human family to prevent destroying ourselves.
If you really connect with your soul, you find that you want to love, share, and contribute. This is our highest nature. It looks like a lot of us have lost the connection to this very deep and basic yearning. Instead, we have an inner disconnection and emptiness for which we compensate by following the false gods of status, money, control, and domination. In so doing, we leave a blazing trail of destruction, both behind us and ahead. We are here to follow our bliss, to realize and express the loving, creative, joyful nature of the Self.
I have been asked by many clients, “How do I find my personal purpose?” In other words, “How do I define my life’s path?” My answer is always, “Ask this question as many times as needed in your meditations and listen to the answers.” Answers can come through a feeling, an image, a word, or a combination of all these things. Some of us have a very clear sense of our Life Path. My brother, for example, is a brilliant mechanical engineer, started taking things apart and putting them back together when he was four or five. He loved nothing more than finding out how things work. To this day, this is what fascinates him.
On the other hand, I was led to pursue acting by a strange impulse that came over me when I was looking at an advertisement for the Academy of the Performing Arts. I remember being glued to the words, dance, and acrobatics that appeared on the list of subjects being offered. I had no dance background, and I was one of the worst students in my high school gym classes. I also showed no acting talent whatsoever. I cannot explain my attraction to the advertisement other than to say that my soul was calling out. It knew that this was the path to follow.
If you have defined your talents, gifts, and pleasures, and you clearly enjoy engaging in certain activities and projects, it means, simple and clear, that you are supposed to do so. The famous quote by Joseph Campbell, “Follow your bliss,” is not some new age fluff. It is a guiding principle for living a purposeful life. You are here to fulfill your potential and contribute. These two are your rights and your responsibilities. Your talents, abilities, and passions live within you like the seeds of an apple tree, waiting to become fruits. It is wise to support and nurture them. By doing so, you are giving to yourself and others.
Many of us lack the courage to follow our bliss. We were taught that we should have a good job that pays the bills and that fulfillment is secondary. Not true. Fulfillment is primary. Ideally, we should find a creative way to marry our fulfillment with a good job that pays the bills.
A strong and consistent commitment to contributing to ourselves and others leads us to live purposefully and fulfilled life. Why else are we here?
