My Journey to Mission In Life

Understanding Your Core

I learned that in World War II if an unidentified soldier appeared from the dark suddenly, and could not state his ‘mission’, he was shot on the spot.

Now don’t get me wrong; I do not believe in killing, but I do wonder what would happen if such an extreme policy was imposed in our day and age.

How would it change the way we think and behave? How would our daily attitude and our individual and collective mission in life be shaped by it?

What would drive us to make our decisions? Maybe that way people will have a mission in life.

Identifying Mission In life

Have you ever explored what your mission in life is?

You could have many materialistic desires and have the money to pay the bills, but who are you without these things? A mission in life will give you an answer to that question.

Can you sense yourself when you are alone without these things?

Where do you exist outside of the bubble of limiting goals that society has connected to your self-worth?

I have learned that society does not reflect the real and deep experiences of your inner-core. Having a mission in life does that. 

The fertility of your inner world flows through your being and can only be lived from the inside-out.

When you feel like you can’t be yourself and have let yourself down because of failing to meet expectations set by others, you start to avoid society.

Society begins to feel like a burden and you avoid being told what to do. These problems become small when you have a mission in life.
 

Importance Of Mission In Life 

We are told to meet standards set by others and no matter how much you have achieved, we will never please them

This has the effect of leaving us empty and lost because we have not discovered our own core self. Once we touch upon our mission in life all these start making sense. 

It is only by locating the core of your being will you have a powerful compass to navigate through a chaotic world, towards a more centered, and fulfilling life.

Focus and energy

We all get disoriented throughout the day.

We get stressed by having to meet cultural and social demands and our personal responsibilities.

This leads to addictions - a reliance on something outside of us to cope with our personal problems.

We gradually get exhausted, and disheartened and react quickly without assessing the situation.

A person might not even understand what has actually happened and have no chance of accurately choosing the appropriate response to the problem. Having a mission in life gives direction and purpose.

We get the energy when
we have a mission in life

Entertainment and similar distractions are short-term gratifications, like a sugar rush that crashes you minutes later and you want to have more sugar, something which in turn robs us from the treasure trove of our being.

We can change our worldly experiences through what we choose to focus on. That is by focusing on the mission in our life.

I have personally studied many religions.

I am an Indian by birth and not defined by any religion but there is one story from the Christian tradition that resonates with me.

The Bible retells that at the age of 13 Jesus disappeared for three days.

When his parents found him and gave him a little reprimand Jesus responded by saying, “Mother, why were you worried, don’t you know that I had to be here, dealing with the things of my Father?”

This response was interesting to me because, what Jesus was actually saying, was that it was time for Him to start sharing the spiritual messages that God wanted Him to impart to the world.

In other words, Jesus had spent three days talking to the teachers in the temples: he was not out in the town running wild!

Finding my mission in life 

The story filled me with intention, motivation and passion and today, I feel that my calling or business is to be involved.

So what is my business? What do I have to do? What is it to be involved? Where do I start?

Part of my mission in life is to aid you in discovering your mission in life.

I nurture and sustain every individual who connects with me by any means, by demonstrating true love and integrity in action.

I care about listening to your story, what you have been through and helping you to define what you want, discover your mission in life.

I bring out the spiritual significance of your story so that it will help you grow.

I also share invaluable insights on life; driven by my own inner work and research.

I care about the spiritual development of my fellow humans as well as the environment.

Every day I am guided to take action through the light inside me. All these are directed towards my vision in life. 

My daily routine involves waking up moments before sunrise and meditating for at least an hour and again later in the day.

There was a time when I was meditating consistently for 2 hours a day.

Now I meditate at any moment that I feel discomfort in my body and a misalignment of energy.

In other words, if I feel disoriented in my head, I take myself back and anchor myself in the core of my being again.

I observe, then I think and meditate, and I often pray that things become clear to me. My business has become clear to me.

My business is to help others. I go inside and learn how to communicate to others based on their unique personalities and personal stories.

If you ask me where do I start; it starts right here.

My involvement is in helping people to learn to live inside-out, using spiritual values in a pragmatic way that works for them.

Leading by example

In these turbulent times, when we endeavor to make decisions, where is our individual and collective intellect resting?

These unlikely ill-informed decisions have the potential and possibility to impact on us all in a pretty bad way.

Do we need to as a species, to refocus and identify not only our needs but the needs of the collective before we make such decisions, especially concerning our world leaders?

I see that much is happening in society at the moment, and I am truly overwhelmed by the state of the world.

It is apparent that humankind can demonstrate an extreme lack of mutual love and compassion. Their mission in life is very superficial.  

Our current leaders (whom we have chosen) are a prime example of this.

It is strange, perhaps amusing and sometimes worrying that I feel more concerned about our inability to choose our leaders wisely than their ability to lead us.

There is a fundamental problem about how
‘we’ view the world at the moment

We are possibly more focused on, or have the habit to be more drawn into the entertainment value, grasped by sensationalism.

We must take the responsibility for the fact that we are all part of the ‘whole’ decision played through by our intentions and actions.

Perhaps some of our decisions are made from fears, insecurities and the ego.

And what is the end result? Well, you can say that we are the living consequences of our decisions; it is often comedy at its best.

I would rather listen to the nudging soul and try to hear what the message is, than to laugh like a fairground clown who has been placed outside of the hall of horrors.

Some of the actors who play on the world stage today ; (our world leaders), we have to ask , is it it comedy, satire, drama or thriller that is being played out?

The fact is, it has been our decision all along: all that is happening, is just playing out our decisions.

When did we start to choose entertainment value over ‘quality of the soul?’

Do we even understand, what does the quality of the soul looks or feels like?

So it leads me to ask, what are
is our leaders’ mission’s in life?

Is their this mission coming from the inner nudging soul?

Are their missions true to them, valuable to society, with and intentions worthy and straight?

When your life depends on it, the continuation of humankind depends on it, and our world depends on our leaders‘ ‘missions’, then is it so bad to ask our world leaders to communicate their progress or success in their missions to us all; after all, they are our leaders.

I have listened to my nudging soul, and I sincerely want to see a difference in our world.

And this deep wish is now captured in my mission statement:

“My mission is to nurture and sustain every individual who connects with me by any means.

I demonstrate true love and integrity in action by providing spiritual insights on life, having done my inner work.

I care for the spiritual development of humans and the environment.”

Part of my mission in life is to aid you
in discovering your mission in life

I nurture and sustain every individual who connects with me by any means, by demonstrating true love and integrity in action.

I care about listening to your story, what you have been through and help you to define what you want.

I bring out the spiritual significance from your story so that it will help you grow.

I also share invaluable insights on life; driven by my own inner work and research.

I care about the spiritual development of my fellow humans as well as the environment.

Have you thought about what is your mission?
