Resist the urge to plan out your life for fear you might go down the wrong road. Right and wrong only exist when you’re in your headspace, focused on outcomes, judging everything that happens. By comparison, goals that arise from your inner voice don’t start with the outcome and then have you working towards it, like ideas generated by your noisy headspace do. Your future reveals itself, one authentic moment at a time, until the bigger picture comes into focus. Remember, you’re on a journey. Life always shows you the next step – if you let it.
Recognize that nothing is for nothing, and that everything is always a reflection of where you are right now. Every experience teaches you something new about yourself and puts you in touch with your feelings. How you respond to them directly impacts how much you participate in – and contribute to – the flow of life. When you keep your feelings stuck, you generate friction within yourself and with the environment. But by releasing them, you contribute free-flowing energy to the world.
Engage with the world in an authentic way, by keeping your connection to your inner voice free and clear. Develop a regular practice around thought awareness and body awareness. Your deepest fulfillment always comes from being in alignment with yourself, every moment along the way.
Should you feel like you haven’t been living your purpose, don’t despair. Every leg of your journey plays a part in your evolution. All insights build on the experiences you have gathered, and all experiences are a reflection of you. Stay connected to your inner voice and keep building a life of greater alignment with your fully realized self. To that end, ask yourself:
What does being you look like right now?
Whatever comes up for you, remember, you cannot fail. Your inner voice is here to guide you every step of the way. As you become more of you, the world around you reflects your becoming. Live freely, and let go freely. There is always more life to be experienced. Your only job is to be you. There’s nothing more authentic.
