As we grow up, we are constantly bombarded with messages telling us to find our passion, or get the most out of life, or build ourselves to be the best we can be.” So often we are prompted to just find out what life has to offer us.
Now, of course, these questions are important to consider, but in and of themselves, they can only take us only so far.
There are two more important, more powerful questions to ask ourselves: What can I do to contribute to humanity? What do I need to do to grow the soul that was gifted to me so that I can bring it back whole to its Source?
John Kennedy said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” I would say, “Ask not what life will give to you, but what you can give to life.”
So often we just exist—we exist for the next deal, for the next purpose, for the next relationship, for the next whatever. It is only in the consciousness of sharing and growing that we can find the energy and purpose to experience what it means to truly live.
