In our endeavour to live this life, the question “what do I want out of life” is often asked at some point of our lives. Our ego tends to interfere with the answer to that question, after a mental pause, immediately an answers shoots into our brain. More often than not our ego comes up with a shiny list of things we ought to have in order to feel happy and complete. The process will work differently, I believe, if we ask a different question “What does life/universe/God/consciousness want from me” if we ask the right questions, we WILL get the right answers. In the first instance the ego would loudly shout that it needs what the media, friends or society has that he lacks. That could be a big mansion, the latest car, a supermodel looking woman and all the money in the world. Then I’ll be complete and happy, the ego would say. Nothing can be further from the truth. Happiness does not lie in the things we have but in who we are, but you will never be able to know who you are unless you look inside yourself and ask yourself the right questions. We are all born individuals, with a mission and a path to follow on this earth.
We cannot all be satisfied with the same things because we are all different. When you ask what does life asks of me, then, you enter a different terrain, then you glance at purpose and fulfilment in the face. Your life’s purpose is hidden inside of you and it is up to you to find it. But you will only be able to find it in the stillness of your inner being. We were all born to feel happy and complete. Ask the right questions, wait for the answers, and then your life will be transform.
