You have purpose. Your life is meaningful. You were created to be here at this time in history for a reason. You are a miracle. You are a living inspiration. You are a created wonder of the world. You are beautifully and wonderfully made.
I purchased a new Campanula Plant, a.k.a. the Blue Bell, the other day. As I wandered around the nursery the Blue Bell in particular caught my eye. As I looked at it I remembered it did something special, something I was interested in, but I couldn’t put my finger on it exactly. So I picked one out, one that needed some extra nurturing, and brought it home.
And after a web search, I remembered: the Blue Bell attracts Hummingbirds. It creates the nectar inside its flower that the Hummingbird enjoys. The Blue Bell has purpose. It was created for its beauty, but also as a source of food for the survival of the Hummingbird. I’d Love to see a hummingbird visit my yard. How amazing would that be?!
It is profoundly interesting how the created natural world teaches us about ourselves. The earth and all that dwells in it and from it, has purpose. Each living creature and organism, has a purpose. They create balance in the world that allows for our earth to survive; as well as, provide resources for our survival.
If you take this image of the Blue Bell, as being created to provide balance in the ecosystem, and apply this to your own life, you too can begin to understand how you provide balance in the created world.
Sometimes we look too hard to discover what our purpose is. Sometimes we try to fill ourselves with words, and activities that we hope will give us some some idea of why we are here. By doing these things we often get in the way of ourselves: We are trying so hard, that we forget how to just be-How to just be YOU. Exactly as you are.
- I invite you to take a step back and try not to worry about what you are supposed to do with your life, or to know exactly what your purpose is.
- Instead try to just go about your day and live, being nothing more and nothing less than just who you are. And as you go about your day, take notice of how you co-exist with the earth, its creatures and other people you meet along your way.
- Affirm yourself and tell yourself that your life makes a difference and that YOU are alive because the world needs you…somehow every day your life, YOU make the world around you no matter how big or small a better place to live because YOU are ALIVE.
For even in the depths of darkness or uncertainty your light shines, and your beauty is seen by all who cross paths with you. Trust this, and live this as your truth.
Remember by just being YOU, you already have transformed life, and have purpose just as YOU are.
