Life has a way of giving us answers to that question. But over time, the answers may change and disappear. You may think youâ€™re here to have children and raise a family. Or to have a successful career. Or to take care of someone who needs your help.
But children grow up. Careers shift and end. Loved ones pass or no longer need our care.
And then the question arises again: What am I here for?
To get to the deeper answer, it helps to look inside rather than to the outside world.
What if we’reÂ here to experience soul growth every day, no matter whatâ€™s going on in the world around us? What if we’re here to know ourselves better, becoming more in tune with the seeds of creativity and passion in our inner gardens?
What if the answer to “What am I here for?” comes fromâ€¦
â€˘ opening up to spiritual growth and learning.
â€˘ finding new ways to ground yourself while letting energy flow through you.
â€˘ expressing yourself as a creative being.
â€˘ bringing love into the world daily.
â€˘ measuring your purpose not by how much money you make or what your children do, but rather by whether youâ€™re willing to keep digging deeper into your inner garden.
Take a few minutes today to sit down and journal. Make yourself a cup of tea, find 10 or 15 minutes of quiet time, and ask your inner self the question, â€śWhat am I here for?â€ť Listen deeply and, if you’re willing, please let us know what you learn.
