Have you ever heard the question, “If you had a year to live, what would you do?” It used to feel like such a heavy question to me. A year to live! I have to get it all in now. I have to make sure it is meaningful and purposeful!
But what if life is already, predefined with meaning and purpose? What if I am NOT in charge of meaning and purpose? What if there is nothing I have to do to make that happen?
I am not saying that we are genetically programmed toward a specific purpose and all you have to do is find it. I am saying, “What if we were never missing it in the first place? What if we were never told it was out there and we should go find it? What if you did not need to look for it, or work for it, or make yourself good enough for it? What if, from day one, we knew it was coming through us all the time?
Put on those glasses for a day. See what would be different if you didn’t need it to be purposeful or meaningful.
