A Simple Definition of Purpose

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, welcome back to your Daily Mindfulness. In today's session, I want to offer a definition of purpose. I think purpose is a really hard thing to define. Is it what you're passionate about? Is it what you feel like you're compassionate about? Is it some divine offering that was given to you? To really define that or the specifics of that is a bit above my pay grade. What I do know is that when we drop beneath the noise of our mind, you know, other people's ideas, cultural ideas, and we really rest in the stillness of our being, there is a softer, simpler pulse of truth that moves through us.

That when we listen to it and we align to it, it actually creates a life that is more fulfilling and feels more aligned because what we're touching into is the deepest sense of who we are and the most simple truth that we can touch in this moment. So the way I like to define purpose is the commitment to deep listening. The commitment to deep listening. Just, I don't know how this is all going to play out. I don't know what maybe I am destined to be here for, but I am committed to listening in each moment for the most subtle, deep truth that I can identify in myself and I am going to trust that as my karmic path.

If this resonates, try it out for you. I know purpose creates a lot of anxiety for people ironically, and it's so much struggle to figure out what is my purpose in this life. Maybe you just make your purpose to listen deeply, moment by moment by moment. Thank you for your practice. Let's settle in for today's meditation.
