What is a Life Purpose?Written by Michelle L. Casto, M.Ed. Whole Life Coach, Speaker, and Author
What is a Life Purpose? The word purpose means to have intentional results. When we are on purpose, we are making a conscious effort to be or create something. Usually what we really want to be or do seems out of reach, “impossible.” But we must remember that word “impossible” with an apostrophe is actually I’m (I am) possible. And you are! Dudley Lynch and Paul Lordis in their book Strategy of Dolphin said this: “We can define “purpose” in several ways. For one, when know our purpose, we have an anchor--- a device of mind to provide some stability, to keep surprises of a creative universe from tossing us to and fro, from inflicting constant seasickness on us. Or we can think of our purpose as being a master nautical chart marking shoals and rocks. Perhaps most profound thing about “being on purpose” is that when that is our status, our condition, and our comfort, we find our lives have meaning, and when are “off purpose” we are confused about meanings and motives.” A clearly defined life purpose provides meaning, direction, and significance. Your life purpose answers two essential questions: Who do I want to be? & What do I want to do? When we are living from our true soul’s purpose, we feel more alive---filled with excitement, joy, and inner peace---in a word “contentment.” We are more connected to one another as human beings and more content with who we are and what we do. When we are “on purpose” we tap into a higher power, we have supernatural support! The best things in life seem to be naturally attracted to us. When we are not on purpose, we try to do it all alone! We grasp at straws, every thing looks good—whether it is a new job, going to school, moving, finding another lover—anything to fill void of extreme emptiness we feel inside. Not being on purpose leads to constant seeking--- external things to make you feel more fulfilled. Being on purpose leads to effortless contentment---an internal peace with what is unfolding in your life. You have a feeling of “all is right with world” and I have an important part to play! As Thomas Edison once said, “If we all did things we were capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.” To reach this place of soulful purpose, an inner shift must first occur. Change starts on inside, and as you awaken to real part you are meant to play, you will develop confidence in knowing who are meant to be and what you are meant to do in world. You will develop awareness of how big and bright you really are. You will then begin to accept your part, articulating it to yourself and others, and finally taking action to live out your purpose.
Where is the fourth dimension anyway?Written by Neva Howell
In 1996, I had an incredible shift in awareness, regarding what happens during group gatherings. The dawning of this awareness began inconsistently a few years ago, as something I noticed periodically and erroneously credited to particular ceremony in progress, or spiritual energy of people I was with at time. Now, I understand that this experience is happening any time two or more are gathered. Whenever two or more people come together--in love, fighting like dogs and cats, or total strangers; aware of one another or oblivious to each other's presence; gathered for a defined spiritual purpose or a yard sale--there are other dimensions involved and another level of communication going on. This is not something I have found it easy to articulate. For example, what may be experienced as a simple, third-dimensional event such as ordering a cheese-burger at a drive-through is, simultaneously, a balancing of energies and an exchange of spiritual information between customer and person at drive-through counter. This higher event happens on another, parallel dimension. When one vibrates at a sufficiently high frequency, this other dimension, higher event, and thoughtform energies associated with it, become visible in third-dimension.
It's like watching two television sets at once (I used to do that in department stores, and it always made me feel strange--as if it meant something more than I could understand, which, of course, it did! It reminded me of something I knew, but had forgotten was going on.), or looking at a split computer screen. Dual reality exists at every moment. Since I've had this realization, I am quite often aware of an entire group of soul energies in parallel dimension, speaking to one another at same time that another conversation takes place on physical level. For a time, I was constantly and acutely aware of this duality of experience all time. For me, it has become necessary to consciously choose to be less aware. I found it hard to participate in third-dimensional experiences I had chosen, so engrossed did I become with how much more was transpiring on higher levels. This is hard to explain and, unless you have actually experienced it, it may be difficult to follow what I am saying. It is same realization I was made acutely aware of when I was drawn to site of two automobile accidents I've written about. At time, I credited gathering of higher aspects to be a direct result of intensity of energies associated with such an event. Seeing Angels, loved ones who have passed on, etc., is common whenever death is imminent or fear of death is brought into forefront of consciousness, as is case with a car crash. I assumed thought-form energies appearing as beings were there because of death energies. Now, I understand them to be equally present at grocery store, laundromat, and hospital.
