What would you have me do?
In these times of struggle and discord
When I feel alone and insecure
When the road ahead seems full of twists and turns
that I am not ready to face
Shall I forge on ahead
with no clear direction
no clues as to which road to wander
No idea of what I am here to learn
What I am here to do
What my soul came here to express…
HOW WILL I SURVIVE?
What is the purpose of life?
That is a huge question that I dare say is very hard to answer, and as we are all unique individuals there is no one size fits all answer.
What I do know is that the easiest way to answer that question is by being willing to ask many more questions to narrow the possibilities. Then you find the answers, answers that were there all along, that energetically resonate at the level of truth to your soul.
I never realized until recently that I had mastered the art of asking questions to find whatever information I desired. Friends nicknamed me, “Baba WaWa,” and even my mother recently commented that I “was a pain in the neck” as a child, because if my eyes were open I constantly asked questions. (Let’s just say that since I have a smartphone and can google 24 hours a day, I am somewhat less annoying 😉 )
When I thought about “asking,” I realized that while I am very good at asking informational questions, I suck at asking for help. Then I thought about the people I know and realized not very many were really good at asking for help. And when I thought about the people I know, I realized they could ALL use some help. Who amongst us couldn’t?
So, while I walk on my journey called life and continue to search for meaning and purpose, I want to be able to not only ask questions for information but to also ask for help! And conversely, I want to be able to answer questions for informational purposes, but I also want to be there, open, ready, and willing to answer a cry for help.
I have a feeling that my purpose in life is intimately tied to asking and receiving, and receiving and giving. It seems kind of simple when I narrow it down to that.
