Forrest Maready is producing a movie that might be of interest in these unsettling times.
Right now we all need to be questioning what is going on and to look for and look at the bigger picture. We as individuals can only be safe and saved and healthy if we all work together to uncover the lies and bring to the light the dark agendas that are threatening our sanity, our economy, our neighborhoods, our ways of life, and our own ways of thinking.
When was the last time you did something for the sheer joy of it?
When was the last time you made something for no reason other than the making of it?
When was the last time you went somewhere just because it was there?
If it’s been a while, you may need to reconnect with your Purpose.
Your Purpose can be a powerful presence in your life… but often it is overpowered by the contradictory feeling and vibration of obligation.
I’ve spent a lifetime untangling the two and learning to distinguish between Obligation and Purpose.
I grew up in a family where just about everything was motivated by obligation. My father practiced law for most of his life, a career he very quickly came to hate. But because he felt obligated to provide for his family he never allowed for other options.
And that obligation led to resentment and anger. As I grew, I vowed, mostly unconsciously, that I would NEVER work from of a sense of obligation. I would “find my purpose” and only do work that came from joy and fueled my joy.
That’s what I vowed.
But, as they say… the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!
So, while I found my “calling” and the work that would eventually bring me joy… it took many years before I stepped out from the shadow of obligation that followed me around.
Have you ever met a doctor who does great work in the world, helping people, healing people, but feels burned out and exhausted all the time because he feels obligated?
How about an activist who can’t find time for a “day off” because she feels obligated to go to every rally and demonstration?
Or what about an energy healer who feels that she is personally responsible for healing every one of her clients?
And have you ever given money to a homeless person because you felt obligated – responsible, guilty, etc. – to do so?
Whatever your individual purpose might be our higher purpose is to awaken to our Higher Self and, in the process, raise the vibration of this planet.
Acting from joy and love raises your vibration and the vibration of those around you. Acting from obligation dampens or lowers your vibration… no matter how noble or valuable the action might be!
Let me say that another way:
Doing noble things – healing people, working for a cause, giving money to someone in need – because you feel obligated to do so does NOT lead to a long-term, sustainable increase in your vibration and the vibration of those around you!
Your vibration may rise while you are engaged in the action but that heightened vibration is not sustainable if the action is based on obligation.
Years ago when I started doing Intuitive Coaching and Energy Healing my vibration would be sky-high during the session. But after the session, the strand of obligation that ran through my motivation would pull me down very quickly and often to a lower vibration than before the session.
So does the short-lived high vibration I held during the session, and the somewhat higher vibration of my client counteract the lower vibration I had after the session?
I actually don’t think so.
Obligation is a bottomless pit that can never be filled. No matter how much you do you can never satiate that sense of obligation. As quickly as you fill in that hole, the energy of obligation digs it deeper.
The energy of Purpose, on the other hand, provides a solid foundation upon which you can build. When you act from purpose you are able to build sustainable structures… including higher vibrational thoughts, emotions and actions.
There is never enough for the insatiable energy of obligation. You can never do enough, achieve enough, provide enough or be enough.
With purpose there is always enough. Every action is enough. You are enough.
Every action you take from obligation brings you back to neutral (or lower).
Action taken from purpose adds to and enhances what you have already created.
So begin to pay attention to your motivation, not just your actions. What drives you to do what you do? Is it joy, love, and passion? Or is it responsibility, guilt, and fear? Are you acting from passion or obligation? Are you attempting to fill in that bottomless pit or build something of lasting value?
What action will you take from purpose today?
What will you do for the sheer joy of it?
What will you build? What will you create?
What will your purpose move you to bring into this world today?
