Our purpose is to be awake

 

…our lasting sense of purpose is in our breathing, in our being. As the humanitarian Carol Hegedus reminds us, “Our purpose is that which we most passionately are when we pay attention to our deepest selves.”
 
So underneath all our worries about careers and jobs and retirements, our purpose really comes down to living fully, to being alight with who we are beneath all the names and titles we are given or aspire to.
Can it be that our purpose, no matter whom we run into, no matter what we are told, is simply to be awake?”

May you walk in beauty. May you be awake.
