Perhaps you are a down-to-earth, practical, realistic business person. The thought of meditation seems so airy-fairy, so new-age, that you don’t see it as a viable strategy for success.
I’m with you about the new-age stuff. When I was researching this whole topic of connecting to your higher purpose I was dismayed by how many new age blogs there are sprouting forth information about the great cosmic consciousness and how crystals, psychic guides and angels can help you. They may have something to offer, but it just did not appeal to me, and I questioned the value of pursuing the higher purpose theme in general and meditation as a specific tool.
However, I knew beyond any shadow of doubt from my own personal experience the value of being able to connect to your higher purpose. And a lot of highly respected business people talk about how important it is to meditate. I realised it doesn’t all have to be airy-fairy. So I began to explore the options.
How do you connect to your higher purpose?
This is where individuality comes in; because there is no one answer. Just as there is no definitive answer to the questions:
- What is your passion?
- What are your strengths?
- What is your greatest talent?
The answer to these questions is unique to each individual, and that is as it should be.
So it is with connecting to your higher purpose. It is not any one thing; it is lots of things that lead you to that place of knowing and certainty. Like putting together the pieces of a puzzle. There will always be easy pieces that you can slot right into place. So you begin with these and that gets the momentum going. As you progress it often becomes obvious where the more difficult pieces go. Sometimes you will pick up a piece and then put it down again several times. As you progress the overall picture becomes clearer and clearer, so that it doesn’t really matter in the end whether or not you slot the last few pieces into place, you can still see the overall picture.
