A man must be prepared to give 100% to his purpose, fulfill his karma or dissolve it, and then let go of that specific form of living. He must be capable of not knowing what to do with his life, entering a period of unknowingness and waiting for a vision or an new form of purpose to emerge. These cycles of strong specific action followed by periods of not knowing what the hell is going on are natural for a man who is shedding layers of karma in his relaxation into truth. ~David Deida

As you open yourself to living at your edge, your deepest purpose will slowly begin to make itself known. In the meantime, you will experience layer after layer of purposes, each one getting closer and closer to the fullness of your deepest purpose. It is as if your deepest purpose is at the center of your being, and it is surrounded by layers of concentric circles, each circle being a lesser purpose. Your life consists of penetrating each circle, from the outside toward the center.

The pursued of happiness is a waste of time. You are already happy! The being that you are can’t be reduced to a lesser form of joy or depression. Your identity, the ego, is what’s resisting the urge to be at ease with your being. This is why the discovery of your deepest purpose takes layers after layers of “cutting” towards the core of your being. As you dissolve each layer and move toward the center, you will more and more be living from your deeper purposes, and then your deepest heart purpose, whatever that is, in every moment.

Why can’t you be happy right now? Seriously what’s stopping you?

It’s easy to feel disappointed by life; success is never as fulfilling as you think it is going to be. But there is a good reason for this. successfully completing a lesser purpose doesn’t feel very good for very long, because it is simply a preparation for advancing toward a greater embodiment of your deepest purpose. Each purpose, each mission, is meant to be fully lived to the point where it becomes empty, boring and useless. Then it should be discarded. This is a sign of growth, bu you may mistake it for failure.

It is as if the universe is supporting you. You have no idea where a lesser purpose takes you, but it may feel right for the moment. So apply yourself fully into it. Give your gift 100%, without holding anything back.

  1. Very interesting post! It’s kind of ironic how the pursuit of happiness actually may end up making us somewhat miserable. Instead of chasing after some illusory objective, being in the moment and increasing our present awareness can lead to greater satisfaction and happiness. Just my 2 cents, cheers.

  2. Really well summed up, Thanks! And what I’ve been going through the last few years. When you’re older it can be classed as a true (not cliched) mid-life crisis/transformation where you are forced to cast off what isn’t working (those redundant layers) and find other meaning. I came across A Personal Tao with Casey Kockmer who you might find interesting (http://personaltao.com). I don’t put links in replies usually, but this time couldn’t help myself, because you might like the simple way he writes. Hope you don’t mind. Cheers!

      1. Damn right.. Life is not hard… The bills is really the only thing to keep up with. After that, whooped dee doop… Take your shirt off, swing it in the air, throw a rock (I really mean ROCK… NOT poop rock. Just in case you know… Someone questioned the rock part.) in the river, fart around, have sex every other place than a bed, be extraordinary, or go on a roof of a building or house and shout the name of a person you love/hate what ever.

        Bottom line… Enjoy being human and enjoy the little things.
