If you're feeling somewhat lost, like you're not quite sure what to do, where to go next and questioning why you're here at all, please stop for a moment. Start to consider yourself from a different point of view.

If you've ever asked yourself, "What am I here for? What is the meaning of all this," and asked the question in a negative way as if you were saying, "This is all pointless," you need to change the way you're looking at this and ask the question in a different light.

What am I talking about? It's all about your intent really. In the example above, the intent behind asking the first 2 questions is given away in sentence that follows - "this is all pointless". The intent is to illustrate how pointless an exercise life is.

This kind of thinking will take you further away from your goals, dreams and ambitions faster than you can imagine.

So change the intent. Do this by affirming to yourself, "I have a divine purpose". Believe in that statement. Repeat it to yourself several times out loud with your eyes closed. Say it with dignity and reverence and smile while you do say it. Do it right now and see how it makes you feel.

If you did that little exercise, you'll be smiling to yourself right now, thinking to yourself, "Wow, I have a divine purpose - how neat!" Now ask the question again - "What am I here for? What meaning can I bring to all this?" In other words - "what is my divine purpose?"

Start thinking about it. Ask yourself the questions over and over. Your mind will eventually give you the answer. The answer will come in the form of something you love to do, a genuine passion that you feel deep within you. For some of you it may be something you haven't thought about for quite some time, or maybe something you left behind years ago when you became part of the social system and got a job to pay the bills.

Others will have an amazing "aha!" moment, when everything suddenly becomes clear.

So many people live ordinary lives that they are not remotely satisfied with. They kiss their dreams goodbye, or worse, they never even take the time to ask themselves - why am I here? What purpose may I serve?

Do not be one of those people. You are better than that. You have a divine purpose.
