What is My Life Purpose?
Why am I here?
If you haven't already asked this question, I'm sure you will. Sooner or later most of us do.
It's not an easy question to answer. It's broad in terms of possibility.
Right now you might be a go-getter in the city; but you could just as easily be a procrastinator in a suburb. Same question, different perception.
But whatever we're searching for in life, be it a bigger home, a wonderful relationship, a new car, top job with a superb salary, loving children or just a little peace in our hearts, it's clear to see we are all united in our search for one thing. But what is that thing?
It's a simple thing. It's at the heart of all of our decisions, yet it often passes us by too easily, too often. When we do catch it, it is a marvelous experience.
I believe we're all searching for happiness and I believe the reason why we miss it so often is because of how we search for it. What do I mean?
We've been conditioned to want. Wanting creates "doing". We desire possessions and money and careers so that we feel or look good so we "do" the things that bring this to us. We attach our happiness to these objects and then somehow feel empty when we have them.
This is why so many people fell disillusioned, lost or confused about their path. This is why so many people are asking or will ask, "Why am I here?"
I asked this question too. Many times, several years ago, I looked up to the sky and asked it. I'm not sure what I expected ? perhaps a bolt of lightening striking the pavement before me or a boulder falling from the sky with the details engraved on it?
It didn't happen.
Then I asked a more powerful question. "How do I discover why I am here?"
Looking back now I can see there have been hints. In fact my whole life is littered with hints that can lead me closer to my truth.
But did I follow these hints?
Not on your life. I wanted lightening and boulders and I got day to day life and opportunities dressed up as things I'd never done before.
And then I heard someone say, 'If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.'
But when we stop the 'doing' of making money and objects and start to 'be' we can honestly see that God-given signs are unique to fairy-tales and Bible stories.
In real life we don't get a bolt of lightening, we get an email, a phone call or a meeting with an old friend and somewhere within this communication, if we're paying attention to being with the person with the message, we can find answers.
We also don't get boulders dropping out of the blue in real life, we have an accident, a fall, a bump on the head or bereavement. It's called a wake up call!
If we are 'being' we understand that call and will somehow know the answers to how and why will be repeated so that you can 'get' them.
Let me give you a hint now. Your life does have a purpose. To suggest anything else defies the very nature of our existence.
You have been given unique gifts that you are not using. You need to find them and then understand what to do with them.
Good luck on your journey to happiness

Sharing Your Experiences and Your Potential!
Who dares to teach must never cease to learn. - John Cotton Dana
Those who pride themselves on their honesty should also concern themselves with this principle: The effectiveness of honesty depends on a person's willingness to face the truth, which may conflict with this person's desires and provoke denial.
Rocking The Boat
I work in a factory, and we have supervisors who play favorites. They have about six girls who can do no wrong, and they have easier jobs than the rest of us. These girls go out after work to bars, and that is why they are in with the supervisors.

You Can Quickly And Easily Solve Your Problems
Today I just wanted to write you a quick note to encourage you. Why? Because even as you are doing your best to be motivated there will be days when it all seems too much.
Dont Ever Give Up
There is a reason I never gave up. A reason I never will give up my hope, my dreams, my desire to live. The reason is people who care. Those who have shown their concern for me, and their wish for me to succeed, to do the best I can do. They give me a reason to live.
The Red Ribbon
Everyone wants a blue ribbon. Blue. First place. The best. Even kindergarteners want that blue ribbon. In sports, I was never a blue-ribbon person. In a race I was always last. In baseball I was as likely to get hit on the head as to drop the ball. In basketball I was fine as long as there weren't nine other players on the court with me. Where I got my horrible sports ability, I don't know, but I got it. And I got it early.

It is hard to capture the synchronicity of this next post. I can only assure you that I was working on integrating these things for this book and this post from a healer came through in answer to my directed thought or intent-ional request. Intent is a vital element of magical operations. Here is my response to this post I believe helped me integrate these thoughts.
The Fighting Father
This man is an Anglican priest but with a difference. You would not want to offend him put it that way. His online ministry helps to serve the community of street youth homeless/drug-addicted/criminal in a very unique way - by teaching them how to fight for starters. At the end of this article I will leave you with Father Dave's Top 10 of why we need to teach our youngsters boxing in order to make them less violent...What does it conjur in your mind when you think Anglican priest? Maybe a religious person? An old man pontificating whilst shrouded by church incense? Or perhaps a born-again Christian jumping about singing 'Praise the Lord on high' and speaking in tongues amidst wails and shrieks of people being moved by the Spirit 'Toronto blessing style.'Let me tell you that though he wears a dog-collar this man is no weakling. Father dave Smith is the minister of Holy Trinity Dulwich Hill in Sydney, Australia. From his own bio:"My mother died while I was still 16. It was the same day that I bought my first leather jacket. By this stage I'd developed a rather passionate attraction to the 'Sex Pistols' and to the nihilism of the British Punk scene. With my leather jacket and metal studs though I modelled my persona more on Dee Dee Ramone of the American punk group 'The Ramones'."We often neglect our spirituality.

I count myself fortunate to know him personally and to have him as a driving force in my Council area."Barry Cotter (Mayor of Marrickville)"I go to the man. I go to The Man's man. I go to the street, to the edge of the breakdown. I go to a man of God who wouid rather see kids throwing punches than punching heroin into their veins. Anglican priest Father Dave Smith"Jeff Wells (Daily Telegraph)"Father Dave is gifted in providing the young with a sense of purpose."Councillor Dimitrios Thanos (Marrickville Council)"fists of steel, a kick like a mule, the head of a fox and a heart of gold"Ross Willis (Western Suburbs Courier)Father Dave also has two digital products available.

Here they are:When young people are in a disciplined training routine they have no time to cause troubleEven when they have the time, they are too tired to cause trouble after a solid night's trainingYoung people learn to work happily in a structured environment which has positive effects at schoolIn the boxing gym they learn to accept authorityThrough competitive fighting, young people learn to set goals for their livesThrough developing their physical capabilities young people develop greater self-esteemThe training routine teaches them self-disciplineThrough learning to control their response when they are hit, young people develop self-controlBoxing training is very cathartic for persons carrying a lot of emotional baggage or angerWhen a young person joins a gym they join a new peer group of persons not involved in drugs or criminal activitiesTHIS IS A SAM BEATSON ORIGINAL.

Let Change Be Your Friend, Mentor, and Inspiration
People have a tendency of anticipating pending change on the assumption that it will be bad. Such focus on the negatives contribute to unnecessary fears of change, even when there is really not much, if anything, to fear. Sometimes that fear can be inflamed by self doubt; doubts of our own ability to deal with this new situation that is about to befall us.
