desires

Purpose = Freedom

purpose is freedom
It’s fair to say that if you don’t know your purpose in
life, you won’t be spending much time working on it. So
what will you end up doing with your working time instead?
Three things: 1) Working on your needs, 2) Working on other
people needs, 3) Working on other people’s purposes.
If you don’t know your purpose, the limit of the work you do
for yourself will be stuck at the level of need, which at
best has the potential to grow into greed. Not particularly
fulfilling spending your whole working life this way… Try it
yourself for a few decades if you don’t believe me, and then
look at the passionless shell that stares back at you from
your mirror.
As you work with/for other people, most likely you’ll be
putting lots of effort into satisfying other people’s needs
and greeds: your boss, your customers, your company’s
investors, etc. Even in your free time, you’ll be working to
fulfill the desires of advertisers who want you to watch TV
and buy stuff. Again, not particularly satisfying, although
you may be thrown a few bones by your benefactors, such as
the “gift” of working on some interesting projects. This
kind of life will ultimately make you want to stand up and
shout, “What exactly is the point of all of this?” But if
you actually do that, you’ll only get blank stares in
return. There is no point.
Now if you’re very lucky, you may get the chance to work for
someone or some organization which is itself focused on
achieving a conscious purpose. However, there’s no telling
what that purpose might be. If you don’t know your own
purpose, you can’t consciously choose to work for someone
whose purpose aligns with yours except by accident or
chance, and the odds of alignment are low. So there’s a good
chance you’ll be working hard to achieve a purpose you don’t
agree with. For example, if you join the military, you may
be put to use to achieve some big purpose, but what exactly
will it be? Most likely, in such situations, you’ll be given
a purpose to achieve that isn’t what you’d choose
consciously for yourself. Fulfilling to spend your whole
life this way? Not likely, but it’s at least a decent path
for people who don’t like to think much — others will take
care of all the thinking for you (and benefit greatly from
all your thoughtless doing).

The Power of Imagination

Did you know that you have a magic power? Imagination is the most powerful tool that you have in your toolkit when it comes to getting the life that you want. Your imagination is a powerful part of your consciousness. It allows you to transform your life in ways that you could never imagine. If you are feeling down, then you could imagine sitting in a lush, grassy field in the middle of spring with the warm wind brushing your skin and the sun shining down on your face. This could be just the thing that you need to lighten your mood. You can imagine anything that you want, and in your mind, you can make it real.

This is key to putting your positive thoughts into action toward manifesting the life that you want.

 

So how can your imagination help you to manifest the life that you want? Your imagination can help you to create new products, start a business, think up strategies, and most of all, create the goals and desires that you want to have fulfilled to have the life that you want. Of course, the best thing about your imagination is that once you have imagined something, it becomes a part of your memory. The combination of your memory and your imagination can be wondrous. Together, these two parts of your consciousness can work to create a virtual world that has no rules, no boundaries, and no restrictions.

Once you have granted yourself full access to this world, you can start to build your new life there, and then move the things that you want to the real world as you go through the steps needed to make them happen.

 

You can also use your imagination to help you remember the things that you normally would not be able to remember. There is something magical about imagining something that helps to ingrain it into your memory in an indelible way. Let’s take a moment to look at an example. For now, just read what is here. We will work with it more in a bit: Continue reading →
