Now is the time to fulfill your purpose
By Sufani Garza, Internationally Accredited Spiritual Teacher and Soul Care Provider
We all seek our purpose in life, and we want to make sure we are doing the right thing to fulfill our purpose, yet we find ourselves deeply confused in life at times as to what that purpose is, and how to go about it. We get lost in life and begin defining our lives around what we see others doing and listening to those selling us the “right” way to do things. I don’t know about you, but I am tired of being sold a one-way-fits-all message. My messages are always about sharing, and then telling everyone to make it their own. Listen to me, yes; be me, no! You are divinely beautiful. I want to see it, not my own reflection! I have done my job if I help you see yourself!
There is an old shaman story, used to bring about wise contemplation about the direction you are taking in life. The shaman asks you, “[Your name here], why weren’t you [your name here]?” For instance, “Sufi, why weren’t you Sufi?” When so much time in our life is spent following the leader and not focusing on simply knowing ourselves and what makes us happy, the question is a valid one. Why are you covering up something that is so unique and beautiful, by trying to be everything else but you? There are many reasons, many we come by honestly, many we were taught. We spend most of our adult life trying to untrain the confusion from our domestication that told us to be other than who we are, because that was good. We know better now!
What is most important is to begin, right here and now, to have some silence and wise contemplation and think about who we are and who we want to be, to understand the seduction happening through social media and digital media to lead us away from just being content with ourselves.
I separate from social media every weekend for this purpose. To check in with myself, to hear my breath, my thoughts, to read and contemplate, to spend time and love my family. This weekend, or some other appropriate time, perhaps spend some time away from social media if you are inclined, and focus your soul on asking yourself these questions:
1. What am I here to do?
2. Am I living up to it?
3. What steps will I begin today to move toward my truest self with love?
4. What percent of time is [your name here], being [your name here]?
