    • 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:

      1. What inspires you?

      2. What are you passionate about personally?

      3. What do you love doing more than anything else?

      4. 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."
      -Joshua Zuchter

      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.
