Reasons for BEING

Today, as every day lately, I have been reading.

I found something that I would love to share with you, it is called "Reasons for Being".

..........................................................................................

Beyond obvious goals, such as making a living or taking care of loved ones, each of us has one or more essential reasons for being.

Here are some common reasons: to love, to learn, to serve others, to heal, to create, to enjoy life.
Knowing your reasons for being makes the act of being a more graceful and joyous experience.

The Practice:

Find a quiet moment.

Ask yourself: What are my reasons for being?

When an idea comes up, say it out loud and see if rings true.

Notice what happens in your heart, your gut, and throughout your body in the wake of this statement.

It might take a few tries before you strike gold.

You know you've found a true reason for being when your body says: "Yes!".

Your own personal yes might come as a knowing, a sense of peace, or a surge of uplifting energy.

For the next week, repeat your reason for being each morning before you get out of bed.

Imagine it permeating every cell in your body.

Then, throughout the day, notice whether you live more "on purpose".

I will be practicing it, maybe we can share our experiences.

Love,

Dey
