The quickest way to understand and live your purpose is to ask if you’re thinking in loving ways.
Loving ways are lead from your heart. Open to give and receive. For instance, you share kindness, devotion, and selfless service. It feels good to you and to those that receive it.
When you are sharing your gifts, it’s from genuine love and passion of what’s true for you.
Think about people you admire that are on fire, living their truth and sharing their gifts. Brene Brown sharing her gifts of vulnerability. Look at the conversations that have opened up. Ellen Degeneres and her love for people and humanitarian causes. Look at how many lives have been touched by her being Ellen.
Goodness is all around. The question is, are you looking for it? The world you see is where you are energetically. It’s a mirror to help reflect what is happening inside of you.
What are your thoughts, beliefs and dreams? Is it time to have a cleanse of your internal stories and conversations to get back on track of finding the goodness in your life?
Is your body struggling, there’s a payoff, it is giving you something. What is it for you? A wake-up call to eat better, healthy or differently? As Dr. Aviva Romm shares, ask yourself, “ How does this symptom serve you? Can you meet your needs in a way other than through these symptoms?” Your body needs goodness with your thoughts and with the foods you are giving it.
Notice where you struggle. Is it spiritually, mentally, emotionally or physically? Begin your goodness transformation there. Think about how you can turn that into something meaningful for your life. If you are cynical, see how following some spiritual leaders can benefit you, give you hope. Just like I know this past weekend, Marianne Williamson spoke in our state. If you have lost hope with the political system and government, she helps ignite you to get involved from a place of love, not fear. Maria Shriver has a new book out, “I’ve Been Thinking…Reflections, Prayers, and Meditations for a Meaningful Life” that can help you ponder some deeper connections even when life has been hard. She says, “There are no such things as a perfect life. What we need are more meaningful lives.”
Being committed to something bigger than you helps you see the goodness, the spirit of human beings and the needs you can fulfill.
I know it is hard these days if you are listening or reading the news to believe that. But, that’s just why it’s so important to bring more goodness to the world, to yourself or to your community.
Think about how much better your day, your life could be if your focus and intentions were to find only the good.
As Abraham-Hicks says, “The things that we would be asking ourselves is, “What proportion of my day am I in vibrational harmony with my desires, which means, how much of my day am I happy, glad, eager, fulfilled, satisfied, complimentary? And what percentage of my day am I ornery, irritated, frustrated, or blaming?” And you don’t have to do 100%, you don’t have to do 90%, you don’t have to do 80%. If you could even get around 55% feeling better, than not feeling so good — you’d have significant movement in what begins to happen in your experience.”
So where can you find more goodness in your life? Even if it is 1% more today than yesterday. Can you use that darkness in your life to create something meaningful for you and the world around you? How can you use your voice for good? Or, is it a gift you have that others can be lifted by you sharing it?
Goodness is all around. Can you see it now?
