We have all been there.
That point in your life where you just got to do something you’ve always dreamt of doing, but for some reason, after the high wears off, you find yourself back to feeling mediocre or basic. It surprises you because all along you thought doing or obtaining this one thing would change everything in your life. You Thought it would bring meaning and fulfillment back into your life. Yet somehow the new car or new fancy job title didn’t bring you any of these things. You begin to realize that happiness and fulfillment in life are created inside of you and can never be obtained from external things or circumstances.
The reason why so many people live very successful but unfulfilled lives is that they forget the power of their internal life’s purpose.
External Vs. Internal Purpose
Here’s the thing, all those things you chase– materialistic acquisitions, the big career, the societal status– all these things, serve your external life’s purpose; it fills the empty spaces outside of you. Don’t get me wrong, these things are very necessary and amazing but it isn’t enough to create fulfillment.
True fulfillment and purpose lie in filling the spaces inside of you.
Your internal purpose is the one that allows you to reach divine prosperity, true peace, and absolute love.
“If everyone chased their soul the way they chase money they would find internal peace and purpose.” – p.o.w
So how do we fill up these internal spaces?
Through Spirituality. Now, spirituality has nothing to do with religion. Spirituality is the knowledge of knowing that you are a soul and have a body (instead of the other way around). Living in this awareness will get you face-to-face with your innermost potential and truth…
The one that knows that love is all there is,
the one that reminds you how abundantly full you are,
the one that reminds you that your life’s purpose is bigger than you.
It is the one that pushes you to be of service to the world.
It reminds you to take a smile and a kind word with you everywhere you go.
Being spiritual allows you to see the unseen, it answers your deepest questions.
It is your essence!
It is Life!
Fulfillment Requires Spirit
So how can you put more spirit into everything you do and fill yourself internally to create real fulfillment?
By putting love at the forefront of everything that you do. Being of service, creating things for the world, leaving a mark of motivation in everyone around you, by practicing forgiveness, and spreading compassion.
These are all the things that fill up your heart; the spaces inside of you.
Open up to this inner space, and listen to it so that you can be the best version of yourself, the one you were born to be.
