This question is something every one of us keep asking ourselves many a times… I should have been a rich person in another country, born in another family, could have been a little fairer, taller, etc. We find that life would have been totally different if you had been born in a different place and time.
You were born as YOU, you could have been anybody or anything else, a plant, an animal, an insect, whatever but you were born as you. You are going through an experience, which nobody else is going through. Even if you have a twin, he or she is definitely not having the exact same experiences and inferences out of life. What does that mean? My inference is you were born in this form, in this way, to your parents, at a particular time, for a purpose. You are here for a purpose. The purpose could be small or big- doesn’t matter. A small squirrel made a huge difference in helping Lord Rama build the bridge between India and Lanka. Believe there is a purpose/ reason for you being here in this planet, and that can energise you to achieve great things for you and for the people around you. Ask not what you can take away from this earth; see what you can leave back that many people can benefit even after you have left.
Doesn’t matter how big the action is, as long as there is action and it is in the right direction. Look inside, there is a map inbuilt in you that can show you the direction to any place on earth; it is not money and wealth that can satisfy you but the journey towards your purpose. The satisfaction is not in achieving the purpose but the person you become in the journey towards your purpose. I am blessed to see that many take that journey with the true purpose at heart. These individuals are shinning, they don’t need any make-up or 1000 watt lights directed at them, people can feel them from a distance; their energy lightens up the mood in the room and creates an environment for people around them to connect, be inspired and just transform.
Start the journey towards ‘YOU’ today in case you haven’t and stop not till the goal is reached.
