What is my purpose in life? I asked the void (my conscience).
“What if I told you that you fulfilled it when you took an extra hour to talk to that kid about his life?” said the voice of my conscience.
“Or when you saved that dog in traffic? Or when you tied your father’s shoes for him?” “Your smile of cheer brightened the faces of an aged couple early in the morning”.
“But your problem is that you equate purpose with goal-based achievement. The Universe isn’t interested in your achievements……just the heart. When you choose to act out of kindness, compassion and love, you are already aligned with your true purpose.
This is explained beautifully in the central message of the Bhagavad Gita which is Nishkama karma which implies self-less or desireless action, it is an action performed without any expectation of fruits or results. So that is the purpose of our life.
No need to look any further!” and remember
So my dear friends please do share your views or your own real life experience of doing a Nishkama karma to inspire our readers.
Bye for now and be very well and safe 😊👍
