They are already helping you. You have asked and it’s been given. Your only work is to allow yourself to receive the help that is there for you. You don’t feel excited because you have been offering resistance to momentum building to where excitement would feel effortless.
If God said, “Your passion is painting.” Would you believe them?
Here's a great meditation to reconnect with your Soul's purpose:
I have the same problem - no passion, no purpose. Nothing excites me. I've also been praying for God to reveal to me what my passion/purpose is, but I haven't got an answer yet. I think he likes to keep us in the dark and make us have to figure it out on our own. A lot of people probably go to their death bed without ever knowing what the purpose is. I really don't want that to be me. I don't want to get to the other side and realize that I didn't fulfill my purpose.
In one of the recordings, I heard Abraham say that the purpose of our life is simply experiencing joy. So as long as you pursue what seems fun to you, you are on the right path. It does not have to be dramatic like rescuing endangered species or dedicating your life to feeding street children.
Pursuing your passion will still require discipline and commitment from your side. There will be some challenging times too. It is really upto you to keep your passion alive with your focus. At the end of the day you will feel fulfilled and excited to reach for more.
Also, for some people- this source of joy could change after a while. So your passion does not have to be the same throughout your life.
You could find your passion yourself by having an honest conversation with yourself . Look at your value system, see what you enjoy doing. I think it was Robin Sharma who suggested that you imagine you are at your funeral and then ask yourself what kind of a life would you want to have lived at that moment.
See if you feel eager to explore new avenues. There is a lot of free material covering this topic. It does not have to be like an electric bulb moment . Set the intention and ask the universe to help you find it and trust it. If you believe that the universe likes to have fun at your expense ( by keeping you in the dark) then it will respond to your vibrations.
At one time, Abe said in a workshop the purpose of life really was to have fun. It was so funny as it was a spiritual crowd they were talking to and some people were outraged by that statement. They got up to the mike and argued for 5-10 minutes, and then Abe pointed out that they had bought a story and were designing their lives on a story that was no where near what their soul or inner being would have chosen, but that they were filtering their lifes through it. There was everyone from doctors and nurses, to midwives and energy healers who were all angry at the idea that the purpose of life was to have fun, and there were many anedotes throughout but it really hit a note with me. What if rather than having to save the world, we saved the world by being ourselves and having fun and that radiated out from us and touched everyone around us including the planet. That seems way cool to me!
nice post :)
i remember how i felt when i was supposed to have fun.hahaha; i was def not in the vicinity of having fun when i first learned this stuff- it was a lot of work for me to finally learn that fun is a state of mind rather than an act ,passion,purpose or vocation.
Beautifully profound reply.
Apparently there are two ways to live once we are in the hear and now. One, we have soil contracts to be a part of other's lives, and two we are winging it So you make up your purpose when the inkling g strikes you in any situation or circumstance. This isn't about fate or a good outside you assigning you a purpose.
