One of the first things I do each morning is read my daily email from Abraham-Hicks. A few days ago, I read one that rang incredibly true to me.
“Nobody else knows your reason for being. You do. Your bliss guides you to it. When you follow your bliss, when you follow your path to joy, your conversation is of joy, your feelings are of joy — you’re right on the path of that which you intended when you came forth into this physical body.”
This reminded me of many Akashic Records readings I’ve done for people who ask about their purpose. Often the answer revolves around what makes the person happy, what brings them bliss. Some people seem disappointed by such a response. They seem to want a complicated answer to justify why they haven’t acted on their happiness.
It is easier to accept our struggles when the solution is complicated and hard. But the truth is, the best answer is usually the simplest. We just want to make it harder to give us more reasons to stay where we are, to stay stuck. Once you take responsibility for your happiness, your joy and your purpose – then, and only then, can you do something about it. Responsibility is your power, and it brings you freedom.
Most people are familiar with Joseph Campbell’s famous phrase, “Follow your bliss.” Did you know that is just part of a bigger Sanskrit saying? Sanskrit is an ancient spiritual language and it says that the jumping off point for transcendence or enlightenment is Sat, Chit, Ananda. “Sat” means pure being. “Chit” means pure consciousness. While “Ananda” means bliss or rapture. Campbell wasn’t sure how to recognize whether his being or consciousness was pure, so he chose to run with bliss. You can too.
Your bliss is your purpose. Don’t overcomplicate it.
