Defined as = the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists
OK…let’s break it down a bit, shall we? “The reason for which something is done or created”
So have you ever stopped long enough to ask, “What am I doing this for?” or “why do I exist?” (so you get the gist of this now…)
Well these are 2 very different questions, yet obviously very relative.
Let’s have a closer look…What am I doing this for? We often answer this with “I’m doing this out of necessity”… or “I have to…” “it pays the bills” “to put food on the table” …and the list can go on and on.
However, how would you feel if you could answer with one simple answer - “I WANT to do this”
Think about how different it sounds and quite frankly I’m sure you are getting that same warm and fuzzy feeling even when you read those words. But seriously, how different would your life be if you could actually say it. Think of something that you actually enjoy doing and hear your inner voice say “I’m doing this because I want to.” Wow! How cool would it be to say that about laundry, dishes, making dinner or even…your job!
So what IS the difference between these two responses? A CHOICE When you feel you have to do something you feel you don’t have a choice. When you feel you want to do something it’s because you have set an intention based upon your choosing.
Now let’s look at “Why do I exist?” Actually let’s not, because that’s too heavy of a question that leads me down a rabbit hole with thoughts of the stars and the moon and…well, I digress.
Let’s just say, if you are doing what you choose you are in flow with your greatest sense of existence.
