Many people equate soul purpose with goal-based achievements. Clients often ask me, “What is my soul purpose?” and “How do I manifest my mission?”
Your soul purpose is your private experience and intimate inner journey toward Home. It’s about having an integral relationship with the Divine and the human parts of yourself. This personal unification process includes being loving and kind to yourself and being fully present as consistently as you can. And, without judging yourself when you miss the goal. Your worth and your soul purpose have nothing to do with your accomplishments. Your soul purpose is to explore and be curious about life itself!
Mission is your “outer” work. It is how you “do unto others.” Therefore, it is also your ministry. Your service-based mission/ministry is expressed when you take time to listen to someone who needs companionship. It can be the act of doubling a blessing by “paying it forward.” It could be helping a turtle get safely across the road or helping someone tie his shoes. When you act out of kindness, compassion, and love, you are accomplishing your mission.
Ego would have you think you should be doing more.
Maybe you think you should be doing spiritual stuff instead of working a corporate job. Your mission can unfold as an expression of love regardless of who your employer is. The line between the sacred and the secular is imaginary. It is a product of the belief in separation—compart-mental-ization that causes us to judge and condemn ourselves and others.
Your career or work is an occupation that earns you an income. Your mission is about loving service. As you interface with the world in whatever job you choose, there are opportunities for your mission to be expressed. Even if you do not work outside the home, family and relationships provide lessons for personal development and offers opportunities to share your journey, your love, and wisdom with others.
Working without a sense of stress or fear is pure joy—especially if your work involves doing something you enjoy and feel drawn to. Like anything else in life, an attitude of gratitude boosts our level of happiness. The speed at which we evolve is determined by how often we express gratitude. The happier we are, the more aligned with Spirit we become. By being grateful and living consciously in each situation, your job can be your mission.
If you find it difficult to manifest your mission, you may be trying too hard to make things happen. Being grateful for where you are right now is vitally important to creating movement and flowing into something better. You will either shift your attitude to better manage being around negativity, or you will shift out of the unpleasant job altogether and find a new place to offer your skills and services.
