Purpose in Life

I have been thinking about my "purpose"... A lady told me that when we were born the Creator, (God, Higher Power, what ever you want to call the one who created us) he/she whispered our purpose in our ear & that's why we have an indent above our upper lip because he/she pressed their finger on it & whispered, "shhhh, now go out & fulfill your purpose"!

I thought this was an interesting concept because that implies none of us are junk or a mistake...we are all here for a reason and we are part of the cycle of life. I like that, I like belonging, and feeling that I am part of a bigger picture, spirit feels so warm & worthy.

If I want, I could feel overwhelmed at this responsibility but I choose to keep it simple! So for yesterday, I made sure to hug and/or kiss those who I love. I have an auntie who is very sick and it will be her time, any day now, to join our past relatives in the next life. But yesterday, as she lay there so fragile and fighting for breath, I looked into her eyes, the windows of the soul and whispered to her, "I love you". Then I let my soul speak to her soul & I said, "auntie you have suffered & lived a long life, it's okay, we will be okay, you don't need to suffer anymore". She couldn't respond but I know nihkawiyis (lil mother) heard me. This tiny huge hearted woman lasted the night but as I travel to go see her again tonight, there is a chance she might leave us before I get there. All I know, is my last moment with her was ours, two souls speaking a purpose.

Keep it Simple! If your not sure what your purpose is, take a moment and ask your still and listen, shhhhhhhhhhh
