We often wake up and are distracted by our to do lists and our automatic way of living; Wake up, brush teeth, go to work, eat, sleep, repeat. Living a life without asking why results in living a life without purpose. The more you can ask yourself “why”, the more you can live your life consciously. The ”why” can be as little as “why do I want to eat this” or as big as “why do I want to have this relationship, have this job, or make a higher salary?”. These questions allow you to question yourself and your actions in this world. Are your actions based on an outdated Darwinian model of living - Me vs you, survival of the fittest. When you open yourself up to these questions and answers, you gain knowledge to the world within. You may notice that you are making choices based on the approval of others, or for status, or for another purpose that isn’t aligned with your true self.
Do you want to see the world change? Do you want to help others heal? Do you want to create and show the world your art? If your purpose each day is solely based on making enough money, or looking a certain way to someone else, the connection to the world around you has been severed. We have a cord connected to every soul in this world. The water you drink has touched many hands before you drink it, The food you eat has been grown by someone, delivered by another, distributed by another, and the list goes on and on.
