For your consideration….

Our message today poses these questions, “Are we seeking the deeper meaning of life, our life purpose? Are we just living life or are we living on purpose?”

It is easy, very easy in fact, to just get caught up in the day-to-day activities of everyday life ie; school, work, family activities, organizations etc. Certainly, it is what we must do. We must do the tasks of everyday life. Yet, we might ask why these particular ones are put in our path. Why this job? Why these people? Why this drama? Why this surprise or gift? Why this idea?

Each and everyday we have the opportunity to maximize it. We have the opportunity to add meaning and purpose to everything we do. We are the exact person each moment needs. We are asked to ask the questions. Why me? What am I being asked to asked to deliver?

Too often we get tangled up in the “big” question. “What is my life purpose?” Often the way to finding the answers we seek is through little questions, little daily activities. Through the seemingly little, we can see patterns emerge that are clear indicators to our life purpose.

We are asked today to be seekers. We are asked to seek our life purpose and the purpose of life. We are asked to take a step back and see how each of us is connected to each other, Mother Nature, the Universe and God.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take….

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Be a seeker.

What made me smile yesterday….

-When a student was asked, “What special day is this?” She replied, “Hmmm, Thursday.”

“Yes, it is Thursday. Is there another reason why it is special?”

She thinks and thinks and can not come up with anything.

“Is it your birthday?”

She thinks, the lights come on and she shouts, “Yes, it IS my birthday.”

-Drawing 3 student’s attention to me, I demonstrate a couple of things they were being asked to do in mindfulness. I demonstrate, tightening arms and making fists and then relaxing. Ok we go that. Next I demonstrate tightening my legs and curling my toes and then relaxing them. (I had flip-flops on so they could easily see.) They are so literal. They whip off their shoes and curl their toes giggling the whole while.

-Good dreams.

-Life is good.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
