Joe and I recently celebrated our 26thwedding anniversary! It was just like the storybook: “love at first sight.” It’s when the heart and soul scream, “Yes, he’s the one!” This phenomenon brings feelings of emotional intensity. It’s like your own cosmic attraction.
So too, this feeling of bliss comes when you discover your destiny – deep down in your soul you understand how and why you are here on this earth. Your soul gushes, “Yes, this is why I’m here!”
The recognition of purpose brings sheer contentment, blissful joy, and a relaxed peacefulness. It comes with the strength of conviction that we have chosen the right track, in spite of earthly setbacks. This feeling of being in the right place, at the right time and doing the right thing brings peace to the soul. Restlessness inside subsides.
When we recognize our purpose, we seem to be in syncopation with the universe, effortlessly breathing in and breathing out, gliding through life.
Similar to love at first sight, we don’t have to strain, worry, or stress to make things work. We are in an energetic field of joyful motion knowing that we have found our place and why.
Our cups overflow, as the Bible says. Our hearts float, and our souls sing. There we find happiness. There we find God.
But God didn’t promise us a rose garden. We are all to familiar with the pain and suffering found in our everyday lives. So how do we grasp this joy in the midst of heartache and tribulations?
A truly joyful person has perspective, assimilating the world and its happenings according to the highest good or the bigger plan.
When things happen to you, either good or bad, step out of your own perspective to play God. See how everything will work out for the best in the end. Eventually. In God’s time, not yours.
True joy and happiness comes, not from freedom of pain, but living with the faith that you are achieving your greatest self, living out your purpose courageously.
