Where do purpose and passion reside?Jan 10, 2022
Where do purpose and passion reside?
Is it “out there” for you to discover and exploit? Or is it inside you to be excavated and employed?
I wonder if it’s neither?
Or perhaps both?
Perhaps it's “both-and?”
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?
