How to find your Life´s mission and purpose
What is my Mission in Life? Why are we born into this world?
Questions we ask ourselves. And most of the time we don’t find the answer.
After listening to this speech about our (limited) time I drew this image that combines the 3 aspects: Time – Our Life`s purpose and the Answer.
Our time is limited. So shouldn`t we use it wisely?!
But how can we use it wisely? Only if we know our WHY.
Questions we need to answer
Why are we born into this world? What is my life`s mission?
I was struggling with these questions since I was a teenager. Actually, the first time I remember being aware of the big question was when first being aware of death. That was at the age of 7 or 8.
Back then we were living in Argentina and I was playing in my room when it struck me. “My parents will die at any given moment. I will die at any given moment.”
Shocked I tried to make sense of everything. But could not. So the only thing I could do was continue with my life and challenge it in any possible way.
When I was 19 years old (and survived puberty) I started to become interested in meditation. And I went for a whole month to a Zen monastery in the mountains.
There I found my WHY.
The moment of truth
My Why is Awareness. It is the only thing you can do in this present moment. Anything else will come by itself.
Awareness of the mind, of your cravings, your wishes, your suffering and fears. Seeing through it will allow you to live in harmony. Not searching anymore. You have everything already. Your mission? Don’t look for it. It will come to you. Just let go of it. As it is just another desire.
Train your mind to be as the blue sky. Clouds will always come and go. But if you focus on the ever clear sky above it, you will see true happiness and the search for the why has been completed.
