The Responsibility of Purpose

Most people spend their entire lives not knowing why they are here.

They struggle with not having any real direction, meaning, or purpose. 

They move from one thing to the next, from one day to the next, seeking something to believe in, something to hold onto, something to guide them, and something or someone to be in service to. 

We have all been in this place at one point or another, perhaps many, many times throughout the our lives. 

We have all been lost. 

We have all experienced doubt, confusion, and aimlessness. 

But, for those of us so fortunate to have found our calling, to know why we are here and what we have to do, it is important, critical even, that we do not take this for granted. 

This gift of purpose, direction, and meaning is difficult to come by. 

Many, many people have died in search of their purpose, never having truly found it. 

If we have been so fortunate as to have discovered our purpose, if we have found our way or have been shown it, if we have experienced the joy, fulfillment, and immense blessings that come with this rare and beautiful gift, we have a responsibility to pursue it. 

We owe it to ourselves, to those around us, and to those who have come before us or will come after, to act, to do something, and to move in the direction of what we know is true. 

If, on the other hand, we take this for granted, if we ignore it, and we choose something else instead, there will be consequences. 

Once we discover our purpose, we will suffer if we turn our back on it.

Rightfully, even if tragically so, perhaps. 

Our purpose is a responsibility to pursue.
