Find Your True Calling and Purpose
Murari Jangir 12/06/2012
We are all a part of this world just like everyone
else and so you truly are meant for greatness, whether you can really
get a feeling of that or not.
But how can a plumber or an
international speaker or a dentist or a doctor or even a sales person be
meant for greatness and what does that actually mean? Greatness means
fulfilling the role you were created for.
This is why at times
you may feel down in your life when you are doing something that you
feel is not you or something that you think you need to, should, ought
to, better do or just flat out have to do or else! The most common
example is working for a company that you don't really want to work for.
In other words, you are just doing so because there are few if any
alternatives and this is the best of the worst.
This is also why
when you are feeling really great, you can be sure that the role that
you are playing is one you were meant to fulfill. Fulfilling our role in
life is similar to how an actor would fill an acting role. When actors
learn a role, they immerse themselves in it. They explore how that
character would act and react in a variety of circumstances and in
different situations. They explore their characters deeply and are
committed to that exploration.
So how can you find out what your
role is here? What are you meant to do and how can you fit into this
world? And just as important, how can You truly find fulfillment?
The way you can get to know your true role is by asking these four questions:
- What inspires you?
- What are you passionate about personally?
- What do you love doing more than anything else?
- What are you good at?
Take some time right now, to write down your answers! Don't just read these questions and move on.
an important key to remember is that although we are all here to
fulfill a role, be conscious and aware that it is a just a role that you
are playing and fulfilling. You are much more than just that role. You
are much more than your physical body, your emotions, your intellect,
your creativity, your relationships, your soul and even more than all of
these put together!
Many people tend to lose themselves in the
role. They get caught in the role and forget that there is much more to
them than the role itself. Eventually, if this happens, an individual
can end up feeling unhappy, unsure about ourselves, lost, and more often
than not confused about his/her direction. This is common with many
actors who enter the profession of acting, that they were once inspired
by. As they get caught in the glamour and glitz of it all they forget
about and lose the passion that led them there in the first place.
Are you truly proud of your gifts, of those qualities that you have that help you to stand out?
I hope so... because those qualities are going to help you fulfill the role that you are meant for...
are your qualities of greatness! Rejoice in those qualities. They are
gifts from the Universe so don't be shy about them. And they are not
just gifts from God and the universe for YOU and YOU alone, they are
gifts given to you so that you could share them with the world.
yourself to fully express who you ARE! For you are eternal and an
important part of the unfolding of everyone else's life.
"Inspiration is the expression your soul makes when you are sharing your gifts with the world."
now is the time to get to know your role, which may mean going on a
vision quest, meditating, journaling, so that you can discover who you
really are and what you are here for. Pay attention to and be conscious
of those things that light you up. Consider how you can take steps, one
at a time to utilize your gifts and life skills, share them with the
world, and at the same time build a career.
Please keep in mind this important point...
Your true calling is not something that takes great effort, for it is already a part of who You ARE.
like actors who get to know their characters, project their thoughts,
create their lives... so too can you do the same. Recently I was working
with a woman who was unsure about her direction in life. She was and is
currently (temporarily!) in a sales position. I asked her, what really
ignites her? What inspires her? What does she love to do above all other
Her answer, was... Singing.
As she started to
talk about her experience when she sings, the hairs on my arms stood on
end and in that moment, it was as if the whole world lit up for me... I
saw it all in a flash... Her entire structure, physically (she is
gorgeous), mentally (she is sharp and has great street smarts),
creatively (she has a quick wit and thinks outside the box), and her
attitude is just perfect to become a pop singer... there are many other
qualities she possesses that I could go on about here.
It is as if, her entire genetic makeup was created for the soul purpose of singing.
as we talked about this for a few moments, she began to share her
insights and passions about singing, something she had not considered
before as her soul path or life's path (career if you wish). Within a
few minutes, we both realized, it is the main role she is meant to play.
And just thinking about it, makes her feel incredible. Since then, she
has taken a few singing lessons, sang for her friends, and is in the
process of getting this going.
And she knows that she is much
more than just fulfilling a role, that there is more to her and her
existence than that. But at the same time, it is clear to her that this
is her path.
And this is where synchronicity comes in...
everything is lining up for her. She has in a very short amount of time
connected with musicians, teachers, and people who will help to make
this dream a reality. When we are fulfilling our role... all things
(people, material wealth, emotional support, physical health and well
being) become aligned and as a result we experience pure FLOW.
