Finding your true purpose is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. Some of us spend a lifetime never finding it.

Once you get the real truth about you though, you will have found the thing that gives you inner peace, balance and purpose. It is the sweet spot from which strength, determination, passion and creative talent emanate.

I could argue that it has never been more important than in our stressful times of major change to find your inner light. Let's be honest, the changes the world is experiencing right now affect all of us. They are the warning lights that alert us to look at ourselves in a new light and rediscover ourselves from a new vantage point.

I have said many a time before that no one can escape the evolutionary process of existence. It is an ongoing process that is with us all the time, often working away quietly in the background. We are so preoccupied with our outside world, seeing just the surface of what is happening that we miss the additional dimensions of our existence.

When change reaches a crescendo of heightened alert we must take notice though. The old rules we have made for ourselves and our world are becoming obsolete. Our operating systems are demanding a broader more enlightened vista. The cosmos demands its birthright, it has to evolve to the next level.

This process, which we experience as unnerving world chaos, after all is only natural. There is no disaster out there which we must meet with fear and resistance. Quite on the contrary. When we react to our outside world through the lens of our conditioning, judgment and our very limited perspectives we miss the all important truths that are staring us in the face.

We lose sight of the fact that we are all part of the same universal stuff and part of the hole.
When we react out of fear and are in judgement we are separating ourselves from the universe. We are going against the natural forces. Since we are the universe, we are going against ourselves, literally attacking our own being with fear, anger and resistance. We are destroying the very thing we want to save. All this keeps happening over and over again because we have a totally misguided view of our ultimate reality and how the cosmic forces of which we are an integral part, work.

Once you understand how the universe works and how you are integral and a part of this you will realise thatOur actions are insane. They increase the chaos in our world, because we are doing everything possible to hold on to our safe world views. Our misguided actions are virtually attempting to stop evolution.

How can we possibly find our true purpose in that mental confusion? We believe that we have to be something that society demands of us. The way we view ourselves has not changed for hundreds of years, We look to the outside to find the inside. Gradually however, the realisation is dawning on more and more people that this flawed concept is actually holding us back, causing wars, illness and many other problems. Actually, the people who rule our world assume that A plus B equals E and they continue to build our society on this wrong concept. This dichotomy is creating tension we are presently experiencing.

The universe will always evolve, whether you accept or not. We are but a tiny part of the larger whole. Does it not make sense that we began to accept this all pervasive truth and started looking at our lives with that truth in mind? If we do, a very new picture begins evolving. You cannot help but let go of the ridiculous anger, resentment and fear you believe you feel when you look at the world around you. You begin to understand your own part in the entire process and see it in a new light.

If you allow the resistance to fall away and let acceptance take over, the veils that have clouded your vision of yourself will fall away. The newly released energy is a powerful force that can drive you to new unprecedented heights and levels of fulfillment and success. Allow the oneness to permeate you.

If this concept is too intellectual for now, adopt the practice of mediation to still your mind and learn energy techniques to balance body and mind.Techniques like EFT and Micro EFT will put your mind in a receptive alpha state. You want to practice techniques that let you experience this state on a regular basis, because: "To a mind that is still the whole universe surrenders." (Chang Tsu)
