We can go beyond seeking the experiences that grant us self-fulfillment, and seek the visions including others in them, beyond our loved ones. Now that's YOLO.
You're never too young or too old to make a difference and to live your purpose! What matters is that you are open to it when that time comes, now or later.
There will be early birds, and there will be late bloomers, especially in higher purpose. But late bloomers are no less worthy than others and can, in fact, bloom the most beautifully. This is essential in understanding purpose.
Anyone who truly wants to serve would do so regardless of their standing. True service and purpose transcend any kind of position, role, or responsibility: what truly matters is that you are responsible
It's not always easy to remember that living a purposeful life entails balance. It's all about balance, keeping yourself in check, and keeping yourself grounded in your purpose. Otherwise, you risk taking things too far at the expense of others or of yourself.
Sharing goodness can be done in so many ways - and, in fact, when you live your true higher purpose, your entire life becomes goodness shared. How can you share more goodness this 2016?
Happy New Year! Our hopes for 2016 are that our community can really grow and be like a virus - infecting each other and others with goodness and the desire to live a truly purposeful life.
Love is the basis and the key to living a truly good life. It is the lifeblood of awareness, the driving force of service, and the guide and shape of purpose. Without love, purpose rooted in awareness and service is useless and absurd. It's all about true love, and a balanced love at that.
Instead of the traditional one big channel supplemented by several tiny ones, consider looking at a system of multiple medium channels that work together to achieve a vibrant, cohesive bigger picture. This applies not just to your income streams but also in living purposefully in general.
It is important to stay healthy for various reasons obvious and not so. But it is even more important to remember why you are trying to stay healthy, and to keep your health habits in moderation - so that they become means towards an end and not an end in itself.
True purpose isn't called "higher purpose" for no reason: it is greater than us and is beyond us, and will keep on going even long after we have gone - whether it's dying or simply leaving. It is most evident in how we remember someone, and what we do with that remembrance as we live our daily lives. It is, in a nutshell, love beyond passing.

It's not about what we do but why we do something. The key question to ask always is "WHY": It's always about the purpose for doing things. But this purpose has to be rooted in truly life-giving soil: the soil of consciousness and service.
In living your higher purpose, it's always about community and sharing - everyone exchanges their ideas, resources, and talents to help others and be helped in the name of mutual achievement of the one big goal of authentic development.
Your individuality is the key to your purpose, and it is uniquely you - while you cannot be like anyone else, nobody can be like you either. Don't strive to be like anyone else (except for Christ), but be an unbeatable you!
Your dreams may be one way God - or your Higher Being - is speaking to you, and thus one way you can realize and live out your higher purpose or your Reason. Take time to look at them, and more importantly, follow them.
The key to understanding everything, especially about yourself, is all about asking WHY. It leads to a deeper appreciation of your thoughts, words, and actions - and thus empowers you to live a better life well anchored on something eternal.

The Purpose Driven Life is a master in showing us the eternal truths God has laid out for us. Through a 40-day spiritual journey, it teaches us five Purposes that we are to always keep in mind while holding on to our God-given individuality. I invite you to embark on the same journey!
What inspires you? This week's Word is "inspire".
Maybe it's the emotions drawing from experiencing familiar things that are somehow different from the previous experience. So many possibilities, even though you have a general direction of where you're going - and that may be why I have the "start-up bug" not just in business, but in my daily lifestyle.
