The Truth About Being On Purpose

The truth about life is that you are forever running against the current when you either contemplate the past and the future or ignore the present moment.

However, the more you ignore the present moment the more you distance yourself from ‘being joy’. I would describe ‘being joy’ as the highest state of being that is true to you, that makes you simply happy, like a natural state of ecstasy.

There is no separation between ‘being joy’ and your personality traits. Therefore, 'being joy' means that you choose to deepen your relationship with yourself.

For this reason, living your life on purpose is essential for: “Where there is no purpose there is no joy.”

This is something I experienced in my mid 30’s when I questioned the meaning of my life. I felt lost, empty, unclear and disconnected from the world. I asked God: “Why am I here?” I did not feel complete, fulfilled, whole, happy and content despite the fact that I had a comfortable life. Something was missing, joy was missing, the sparkle which meant that I was on purpose was not there. I was not being and doing what brought me the greatest joy.

However, the answer came to me one night: “Your life’s purpose is to enhance people’s lives.” This revelation changed my life forever.  

The 19th century philosopher and father of Existentialism (a philosophical theory emphasizing the existence of the individual person as a free and responsible agent) Soren Kierkegaard shared in his letter to his friend Peter Wilhelm Lund dated 31 August 1835.

“What I really lack is to be clear in my mind what I am to do, not what I am to know, except in so far as a certain knowledge must precede every action. The thing is to understand myself, to see what God really wishes me to do: the thing is to find a truth which is true for me, to find the idea for which I can live and die. I certainly do not deny that I still recognize an imperative of knowledge and that through it one can work upon men, but it must be taken up into my life, and that is what I now recognize as the most important thing.”

What Soren Kierkegaard wrote to his friend was profound. It reveals his desire to self-realize and to give meaning to his life in order to justify his existence.

I would say that: “Joy is like an electric current that never stops buzzing.”

When you experience this constant buzzing or state of joy you know that you are on purpose.

You are on purpose when you can say:

  • I love my life
  • I love myself
  • I love others
  • I love what is
  • I love this present moment
  • I love being in the flow of life.

The answer is simple: in order to be joy

  1. do more of the things you love that ignite your inner fire and
  2. be more authentic every day
