This perfectly describes me:
Once we get out of the bubble, and see things with a wider view, we can start a journey along a path like this:
- We can start to see the needs of others, and feel for their suffering.
- We then work to make their lives better, and lessen their suffering.
- Even if we aren’t good at that, we can learn skills that help us to be better at it. It’s the intention that matters.
- As we go about our daily work, we can tie our actions to this greater purpose. Learning to program or become healthy (for example) isn’t just for our betterment, but for the betterment of others, even in a small way. This gives us motivation on a moment-to-moment basis. When we lose motivation, we need to get back out of our bubble, shed our concern for our discomfort and fears, and tie ourselves to a bigger purpose.
My life purpose
I found my life purpose recently when I started to be interested in spiritual life. I found my life purpose at age 26. My life purpose is to teach people. It does not matter what I teach. I can teach web development, spiritual practices, how to become a better person, inspire others to make the world a better place to live. That’s my mission in this life and I really love it. And people love it too! I enjoy what I do, people enjoy what I do. I enjoy when I can give my knowledge to others and they are grateful for it. I can feel the energy that flows between me and my students. It’s perfect. It’s hard to describe how I feel. It’s like you would win the jackpot in lottery. Really.
