Aflame In Purpose

A sense of purpose is necessary for your wellbeing as much as your success.

For purpose conjugates a direction than an aimless wandering.
To consolidate with a focus, is to connect yourself to your own existence.

It’s a knowing that you can direct your energies to fruition

Amassing your experiences towards self expression.
That gives a meaning to your very being.

In such a practice the purpose is reinforced.

Strengthened by the force of intention.
All in a dedication to connect with the core of being who you truly are.

Follow your passion…find your purpose… fulfill your presence.


The highest motivation that can change the way we behave for the better is always intrinsic than external factors. There have been many research studies conducted to find out if we are influenced to perform better consistently through a system of rewards and punishments. Humans, are found to decrease performance in tasks where there is only materialistic gain as a reward,but fare consistently better where there is autonomy & encouragement  towards a purpose. A purpose which aligns with their innate  sensibilities.


This throws the conventional and traditional approach to getting work done, up for a toss. As it is exactly opposite to the viewpoint that  humans can be manipulated to a large extent to achieve better results by the so-called carrot and stick methods .



 

In choosing to work harder at a task or a job with passion instead of needing to comply to it  lets the  being feels free enough to go beyond the box . As there is free will within  a wider net of required structure the creative potentialities are given a free play  and thus the individual moves closer to his authentic self . The joy of self-expression results in a need to share it with others out of sheer happiness .

 

Highest levels of happiness are  in giving a  larger meaning to life  whether it is in involving oneself in activities  helping another, in learning and growing with another , it could be in learning  a new  art form ,or even simply in dancing socially with a group of people , are  all wonderful for your well-being& a healthy life. Even in the simple act of volunteering towards  a good deed  from the heart,  can make one realize the true joys of sharing….and find meaning in one’s own lives .


What is that makes us love ourselves better when we give? Is it the satisfaction  in the appreciation of that which we willingly share or is it on the innate need for doing a deed with a larger good in mind. or is it in the happiness of the other that results through the actions. Whatever it may be, just remember we are truly blessed and are our most authentic self in every expansive action that we choose to do!

Step out of your own way!

Often we question our being 

 Often we wrangle with our past

 Often we wonder about our future 

 It is human nature to think and question why 

 

Thoughts have a way 

At times to get the better of us

To stall the imminent possibilities 

To create unwanted confusion and chaos. 

 

Allow yourself then 

To step out of your own way 

Allow your purpose to unravel 

To unfold its path.


Steer yourself away from doubts and despair.

Arm yourself  with hope in the trusting.

Arm yourself with assurance and appreciation.


Steer yourself away from false notions.

Arm yourself with power of positive actions.

Arm yourself with tools for a new direction.


And only then the purpose of your being 

Will  begin to manifest in your way 

As you learn to continue to…

Step out of your own way!

The title of this post comes from reading  a  contemplative article by my friend Deb Helfrich where she mentions the need to step out of our own way at times to allow and sense the appreciation of what is . So thank you Deb for inspiring me to pen a few verses on a parallel hought.😍

For the love of dancing1

Dance with joy and not with friction

 Dance with awareness not with caution

Dance with grace not with distraction

Dance with gratitude not with a contradiction

Dance to feel your soul move and not just as an action

Dance in response to an action, rather than just as a reaction!

Dance with the heart and mind in rapt attention

Dance with expansiveness accepting correction

Dance often, in prayer and dedication

Dance with a conscious acceptance of  the divine connection

Dance with elegance and the harmony of completion !
