Many people go about their lives trying to find their purpose. Frustrated, feeling purposeless, feeling restless without their raison d’etre. But shouldn’t purpose just find you? In my own experience, I have seen purpose as synonymous with passion and meaning. But I acknowledge that this is not the experience of everyone. I have learnt that some people just do not experience a sense of ‘external’ purpose. And this is perfectly fine, and perhaps the greatest thing of all, as perhaps these people as being guided towards a deeper sense of what purpose is for them. The world would say though, that they are ’missing something’. But why do we seek purpose in the first place anyway? Why the external purpose? We seek purpose because we believe that if we have a sense of purpose, we will feel full of life, energised in every moment. We believe we will awaken every morning with a sense of internal approval and validation. So this begs the questions can purpose be culitvated? Perhaps our real purpose is about having an inner purpose to awaken, and awaken to this inner purpose. Would this perhaps be a common purpose uniting us all? Seeing purpose as inwardly rather than outwardly driven, we begin to free ourselves from a dependence on the external world. Through our own awakening – our own inner purpose of self-realisation, the outer purpose proves irrelevant. For some, their path is one of realisation that outer purpose manifests only from a space within, i.e. with the inner awakening your vacuum becomes filled and you stop trying to fill it outwards.

If you’ve been searching for your true purpose in life, Eckhart Tolle has some straightforward advice: Stop Struggling! For the primary purpose of every human being is simply to be . . . fully engaged in this moment, and aligned with the natural flow of reality itself. On Finding Your Life’s Purpose, the bestselling author of A New Earth invites you to discover the twofold intention of our human incarnation: to free yourself from the prison of “thought-based reality,” and to express in your own way the grand vision that universal consciousness has for your life. Finding Your Life’s Purpose brings you into the vibrant presence of this sublime teacher, as he offers his one-of-a-kind guidance on:
• The beauty of effortless being, and how to awaken to it
• Tapping the vast power and intelligence of stillness
• How to embrace the space rather than the form of this moment
• Unfolding your purpose through actions in alignment with the timeless present
• How to see the deeper essence of another human being
“You are the consciousness that illuminates the world. Know yourself as that—that’s what life wants with you”
