One fine day ,during my Angel workshop – led by Komal Kuwadekar , a wonderful person ,an entrepreneur by profession ,who lives in Mumbai, guided me,via skype, through this wonderful meditation and guided technique to know what’s my life’s purpose?
Interestingly , all this while , I was beating around the bush ,never finding that time for myself.Even during a workshop held by IBM in 2009, it was focused on late Stephen R. Covey’s- ‘7 habits of highly effective people’ I wrote a tomb stone statement but it wasnt accurate nor did it impress me a few years later.It had never occurred to me that one day I will be asked this question – What is your life’s purpose?
In the past , I have served in social communities, even now I continue to do so.I love socializing and helping with a cause too.
Preparation process : As I sat across the computer , Komal via skype ,requested me keep a notebook and pen ready to jot down any guidance that flows through.My heart was pounding with excitement and nervousness -coz I was fearful, of what i was going to experience, at the same time, waiting to ask like a little child .She asked me to close my eyes I relaxed and meditated & visualized the love and energy surrounding me and that I had the permission to get clarity on “What is my Life’s purpose?”
Getting Clarity : In my deepest state of meditation,I heard a couple of words and visualized certain images and formed a mental picture of how it would look like .
After 15 mins, I delved deeper and deeper and the minute I allowed myself ,I began to hear clear sentences and started auto-writing (after a long time)..After the writing stopped,I opened my eyes and was ready to share it with her.
Aha moment : I felt definitely better than before and much more motivated! Something to look forward to. I thanked Komal ,offered gratitude to my family and relatives,friends and colleagues and all the masters and guides for experiencing this wonderful process.
Freedom : A fresh perspective and was looking forward to living how life is going to unfold now that I got some clarity but I was overwhelmed by what I had received and did not know where to begin and how!
I will stop here and take a moment to ask each one of you .Have you taken time for yourself from your busy schedule to become aware and find out “What is your life’s purpose?”
I will leave you with this beautiful video that inspired to write about this topic today !
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.Adam Leipzig has overseen more than 25 movies as a producer, executive and distributor. and has produced more than 300 stage plays and live events, and he was one of the founders of the Los Angeles Theatre Center.He speaks at TEDx on How to Know Your Life Purpose in 5 Minutes.
Btw, I am going to cover Part 2 in another blog on how I began my journey towards complete awareness and fulfillment of my life’s purpose ( though I still do not know if its a beginning or means to finding one :))
