Are You Living A Life Of Purpose Or Are You Living A Life Of Fulfilment?

Experiencing a sense of fulfilment in our work seems like a mission that is highly evasive. Why is it so hard to achieve this sense of fulfilment within our hearts, you know, the feeling where everything just clicks into place. This seems like a million dollar question that so many of us are asking ourselves these days.

It doesn’t help that the millennials are receiving the brunt of it, who are notoriously known to be job hoppers as they seek to feel a sense of fulfilment in their jobs. In reality, this age old question did not just start with the millennials. I personally believe that every evolving soul would put themselves in a position where they would question everything about their existence – from their jobs, their service work, to what would give them a sense of fulfilment. The difference between the millennials and those before, is that the millennials have a sense of security that they will be supported by their parents if they were to quit their jobs in pursuit of something that gives them a sense of fulfilment. The generations before had to be more self-reliant in order to fulfil the purpose of feeding their families. They didn’t have the luxury to job hop to find what gives them a sense of fulfilment. Say what you like about the millennials, they are certainly in a much better position to find something that gives them a sense of fulfilment in their jobs. They are the ones who are seeking to align their personal agenda with the agenda of corporations they would like to work for.

Millennials in this sense are opportunists, who are making the most of the situation they have found themselves in. However, the job hopping certainly cannot go on indefinitely, how does one find what is fulfilling? Does it mean trawling through the many jobs available in order to experience the click within the heart?

What about those who are going through a mid-life crisis? They have lived a purpose of providing for their families and everyone is comfortable except themselves? When the crisis hits, the first thing that suffers is their sense of direction. Their compass is pointing in all kinds of direction except the right one. Some go through the long periods living a de-stabilizing life, and their career eventually suffers as well if they do not have it under control.

All of us have varying degrees of purpose when it comes to our career. For some, it may just mean to serve the purpose of providing for the family, for some it is about serving the purpose of the organization, and for others, it could be serving the purpose of a contract. How about serving the purpose of fulfilment within one’s heart? How about experiencing a deep sense of fulfilment within, knowing that one is in flow with the Universe and at the same time, serving the purpose of the organization, company or business?

There has to be a better way of getting answers?

Traditionally known as Ray Reading, there is a Soul Profiling System that seeks to align one with one’s life purpose with a workable and marketable prospect of living life in a more fulfilled way. This system uses the Science of the Seven Rays, which is a spiritual psychological tool to understand self from the perspective of one’s soul. This profiling tool also points to the direction of one’s Soul and the energies that offer soul fulfilment to the personality in question.

At the end of day, all of us are looking for answers on how to live a life of purpose that gives us a sense of fulfilment and our wish is to reach this goal as soon as possible, so that we may serve the world in a far better and bigger capacity than we have allowed ourselves to dream.
