Adapting to each others rhythms takes courage after 7 years of living alone. It seems this morning I stole my fiance’s pillow, and would not give it back in my sleep. I talk in my sleep – last night I was mumbling about aircraft hangers. I have been told I sometimes sleep with my legs bent up in the air, on my back. Combine that with nightly gratitude lists said out loud before sleep, and prayers before bed, no wonder my previous husband had his own room.
My fiance naturally wakes up at 6am, I wake up at 9am, especially when I don’t have to work. He is in bed by 9:30pm and I cannot sleep till midnight. Over the past three months I have spent the evenings watching movies, TV, snacking and drinking beer to pass the time.
I read a quote recently “your destiny is the consequence of your daily actions”. What kind of destiny am I creating by just passing time until my work visa comes through?
I had a friend read my Akashic records. The Akashic Records are an energetic imprint of every thought, action, emotion, and experience that has ever occurred in time and space. The Akashic Records can also be understood as the imprint of all experiences of all lifetime in all realities. Right in the middle of my reading she asked me what a spiritual leader would do in my situation? I can’t imagine the Dali Lama sitting around killing time, untill he is given permission to do his spiritual work by the state.
A spiritual leader would adapt to the situation and not take the obvious detour (TV and beer). A spiritual leader would find a way to continue to discover their spirit, to be grateful, to be creative, to be on purpose. Rather than just pass the time.
You’re scared, I’m nervous / I guess that we did it on purpose, on purpose, on purpose / Baby, I know it’s weird, but it’s worth it / ‘Cause I guess that we did it on purpose, on purpose, on purpose.. (Song by Sabrina Carpenter)
Living on purpose.
I want to live on purpose.
So much of my life up to now has not been on purpose. I swing from being very self-aware; exercising, meditating, reading, or completely unconscious; watching trash tv, eating crap and drinking beer. Enough is enough I want to be on purpose all the time.
What would living on purpose mean for you?
Words like intention, and deliberate, come to mind.
What are your words for living on purpose?
