One of the things Mastin Kipp talked about last week at his Growing Into Grace book launch was this idea of purpose not being the destination everyone makes it out to be.
Purpose is a feeling, not an end goal to be reached.
Our best guide is our intuition, the voice that most of us have shunned so much that it’s barely a whisper. But, when we begin to pay close attention. When we begin to listen and steer in our guided direction that little voice will start to speak up more often, with greater clarity.
I listened to a great interview with Caroline Myss from Youtube’s Chopra Well the other day (which got me digging deeper into her work) and will be writing more on that soon. She is a theologian who describes herself as a medical intuitive and mystic, and just so happens to be one of Mastin Kipp’s many mentors.
I love her take on this topic of purpose.
Basically, we got to get out of our own way, do the real work that we’ve been called to do, and then let the rest take care of itself.
I leave you with this: Each time we ignore the voice of intuition, because we “know better” we break trust and lose another little piece of ourselves–only to be gained back when we begin to listen.
