Where do purpose and passion reside?Apr 09, 2022
Many of us have been told, “find your passion and purpose.” But have you been shown how to find your passion and purpose?
Where do purpose and passion reside?
Are they “out there” for you to discover and exploit? Or are they inside you to be excavated and employed?
I wonder if they’re neither? Or perhaps both?
Perhaps these are “both-and” situations?
What if purpose and passion naturally occur from doing the work right in front of you right now with full mindful presence?
What if purpose and passion aren’t finite but renewable resources? Maybe they arise from engaging in your everyday routines and relationships with purpose and passion?
Maybe purpose and passion reside where wisdom lives?
“Wisdom consists in doing the next thing you have to do, doing it with your whole heart, and finding delight in doing it.” — Meister Eckhart
What if, just for today, you stopped treating purpose and passion like destinations?
What if, just for today, you treated them like regenerative resources that grow as you employ them in all your endeavors?
What if, just for today, you practiced purpose and passion from the inside out?
How might that change everything?
