“PURPOSE – the reason for which something exists or is done; a goal of an action intentionally undertaken; an object being brought into use or existence.”
Have you ever had an irresistible craving for something, let’s say a chocolate ice cream, but there was none to be found in your house? You raid your fridge, and after devouring half of left over chicken, a plate of pasta, three bananas and a full box of oatmeal cookies you still feel unsatisfied, until you finally give in, go out, buy and eat a chocolate ice cream?
Now, let’s say the chocolate ice cream is your Personal Purpose. You crave it all your life, you search for it, but no matter how accomplished you become, how many things you accumulat or how many victories you win, you are still left with a craving, feeling unfulfilled, empty and dissatisfied.
“Reason for existence”, “Action with intent to produce desired outcome” and “Fulfillment of one’s usefulness”, isn’t this what we all crave for and strive to achieve in our lives?
Every person on this planet at one point or another asks “What is my Purpose in life?”
For the past three days I have been involved in an intense, full-day weekend course, called Being inAction. I am now sitting in a quiet stillness, processing and absorbing all that I have learned…
Human Beings! If there indeed exists a higher, more sophisticated life on some distant planet in this or other galaxy, to them we most likely seem like simple organisms, low in evolutionary development. We may resemble a bunch of toddlers or teens, running around thinking that we know it all, yet still lacking the ability to comprehend, recognize or accept anything that is beyond our level of development. But in our own eyes we are complex!
Humanity stands on a threshold of awakening, a new step on the Evolutionary Ladder, and wonders if we have what it takes to make the transition to the next level.
There are some of us who may have already shifted, or at least had a momentary glimpse, a brief experience of what the next level is like. There are some of us who may be oblivious to a shift or are unable to recognize the changes happening on a personal and on Global scale. There are, however, many who are standing at the edge of a Major Shift, a Grandiose and Spectacular Transition, looking into an Abyss, feeling exhilarated and petrified and wondering what will happen if they choose to take that leap.
And while some part of us thinks that we may survive this jump, the other part is convinced that we will leap to our certain death.
Change is always uncomfortable and often can be petrifying! Fear of unknown is strong and trying to let go of what you hold as your truth may feel like death.
Out of fear rises confusion and chaos. The shift is happening on a subconscious level and it is easy to understand why so many of us Globally are united in experiencing sadness, anxiety, anger and hopelessness. Yet each of us believes we are alone in our pain.
We don’t necessarily recognize this state of suffering as growth, or as a positive change. How can something positive feel so terrible? We feel lost. We don’t know how to talk about this with others, or with who we can talk to, and because of this we often feel broken and isolated.
We are so desperate for someone to come, take away our pain, take away our confusion and tell us that all will be “OK”. We want someone to give us answers and free us from our personal limbo, and one question keeps running through our minds over and over again: “What is my Purpose in life?”
Although the answer to this is deep inside us, we are unable to access it alone. In our desperation and eagerness to find answers and a way out of our Suffering, we seek out those who know, or at least sound and act as if they do.
Humanity is ready for a new level of awakening. The rise in demand produces supply in a form of someone who has answers and a Key to open a door behind which lays our capacity to end our suffering.
And thus today almost every other person seems to be some kind of Guru or Personal Coach. The problem, however, is that literally anyone who wishes so may become a coach. All they need to do is simply proclaim that that’s who they are!
With so many people claiming to be experts, how do you separate the Authentic ones from Megalomaniacs and Narcissists? How do you find the one that would be right for you? The one who would not only help you transition into the next level, but in the process of doing so will not damage you in any way? The one who truly functions from a place of Integrity and Authenticity.
I have searched for many years for such a teacher. I have seen those that are highly knowledgeable and well know, but the cost of their teaching is not readily accessible to an average person. I have seen those who claim to be the next Buddha or Christ, but in reality may be somewhat delusional or may be even dangerous. Although they may have flock of answer-seeking, desperate followers, the only goal they truly serve is feeding their own Ego. I have seen “Teachers” who have created a profitable business where they talk the “Talk” simply to excite, motivate and manipulate the masses into going out and recruiting more followers, so that they may fatten their “Teacher’s” bank accounts. I have seen those who memorized “The Lingo” and perfected “The Act” simply so that they may receive the recognition and notoriety, but in their “off-stage” life have no intention of exercising even an ounce of what they preach. I have seen those who “teach” simply so that they may feel superior to others, or those who want to resolve their own issues without having to look at themselves, or worse don’t even recognize that they have an in the first place. They fail to recognize that they have to work on their own “stuff” before they can offer help to anyone else. And the list goes on, and on, and on…
So how does someone like me, who has the need for Authenticity and Integrity hardwired in her core belief, find someone in this endless Sea of Coaches and Leaders? Who can I trust to be my guide on my journey to enlightenment? Is there no hope? Am I, and others like me, doomed to suffer without resolution?
Fortunately, there are hidden gems in a forest of “glass-beads” and “zirconium imitations”. I was thrilled to find “Being inAcrion” course presented by The Aletheia Group and led by one of the most amazing and authentic teachers I have ever encountered, Gordon Allan. This course transformed my life!
In just three days of deep exploration and guidance I was finally able to find my Personal Purpose, for which I have been searching all my life. I was than able to sea how it has manifested itself throughout my life and identified the patterns I created to prevent me from seeing and realizing the person I was meant to be.
At the end of three days I left with a Goal that not only made sense, but actually felt right to the core.
If you are a person who may be searching, growing, transitioning or questioning, If you are in pain or just wanting answers that resonate with you, I highly recommend that you at the very least come to one of two-hour information sessions and hear Gordon Allan talk.
There will be no pressure to sign up, unless of course you want to. This may be the greatest gift you will ever present yourself with. You owe it to yourself to at least explore this opportunity and than make an educated decision based on knowledge, rather than ignorance! This is your call to action!
Whatever you may decide, I wish you Peace, Love and Joy on your journey!
