How's Life calling me to serve?
Since I've been back from my retreat, I've been doing a lot of cleaning and clearing. It's like clearing my body and mind helped initiate external clearing as well. I organized my computer files. I added and cleaned up my contacts in my phone and email. I'm also realizing that I know more people than I thought. Between facebook, my phonebook, and my email, I am connected to a lot of people on the physical level. On the spiritual level, we are all connected, but it's nice to know that we can connect in the physical realm.
I've been feeling like reaching out to people lately. I even ask "how I can be of service?" more. I do that at home, at work, in my meditation classes and groups, and even in random places like the grocery store, while driving, and at new social events. I'm not surprised that it's happening as I am more aware of everything around me. It doesn't seem to take any effort or thought, which is how I know that I'm more aligned with the whole.
I read on article on the Oprah site on how to define our calling in life and one of the quotes that stayed with me was, "let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love." Then, it asks you to make a list of all the things that apply when you are at your happiest. Here's what rang true for me when I am at my happiest:
Helping others find their energy fields
Staying present and allowing everything to be as it is
Sharing insights with others
Teaching from presence
Being around like-minded people and with people in general
Listening to another with an open heart
Being the space holder for others to freely express themselves
Journaling with purpose
Obtaining information and practicing ways out of suffering
Writing and brainstorming stories that align with the whole
I am sure there is more, but the above stood out like signposts. Although, I'm not completely certain how it will all piece together to make a career path or my calling, it's beginning to feel warmer. One of my meditation teachers recommended once for when I don't know exactly where I'm going to simply go towards what feels warmer. Doing that also clears the path in the direction that's more suited for me.
This week, my intention is to follow another quote from that same article, "Let Love be my intention, my purpose, and my point. And then let Love inspire me, support me, and guide me in every other dedication I make thereafter."
Please join me in letting Love be our intention and letting Love inspire us in whichever path we partake.
