What is my purpose?

The purpose of why we exist is one of the questions that has accompanied humanity for millennia. When you question the why, it’s usually a marker that some conflict is inside, and you are centered in the mind-ego sphere. There is usually pain and suffering that you are not seeing. So, for the mind, this uneasiness in experience must mean that there is something to ponder and figure out. And usually, when the pain or suffering is entirely meaningful, these questions arise or keep lingering.

The more you move toward discovering who you are and healing the suffering you carry, the more slowly you emerge to live. You discover how connected you are with all of existence, and there is a natural sense of joy and wonder toward creation. Through this, your purpose shines through. You can connect deeply with what brings you joy and how your soul soars and this gives direction and meaning. You thrive, in essence, just by being alive. And your purpose lives through you.

Why am I so impatient?

Impatience usually implies that you are centered in ego-mind space, most likely extremely focused on your sense of self. You are concerned about your projects, plans, and situations and experience others as interruptions, disturbances, or annoyances. You are really disconnected from everything else around you, finding problems and getting flustered with everything and everyone. The core of experiencing life like this is being in fear, and anger is a natural byproduct.

The most crucial step is to see that there is impatience within you. Seeing implies simply acknowledging that this has become a default mode. It does not mean it’s the only thing you are or the core of your being.

When you see this, there is a profound shift. There is no one or nothing to blame. Taking this step allows you to be present again with the flow of life. You can be aware that growth, tools, and the perfect people and circumstances are there for you to support you in your journey.

Is life just about witnessing?

Moving through your spiritual journey implies moving closer to having an internal inclination toward witnessing more. For the mind, this can be interpreted as inactivity, as just being more of an observer, disconnected, and less active with life. This can be a natural misunderstanding when the mind still holds concepts in a rigid way. This is very natural and human since the mind is one of the most powerful tools we have learned to rely on—but it’s not where we should live.

Witnessing is never experienced through the mind.

Witnessing happens. It is a space of no action, yet it’s so powerful that it always leads to the highest response in any situation. When we witness, our heart has a natural direction toward the highest action we can take, one that is rooted in a response to life instead of a reaction. It’s always the perfect answer, even if the mind can’t understand or see this. And when you become comfortable in this space, freedom flows through you.
