Enlightened wisdom believes that the question is more important than the answer. In other words, without the correct question being asked, you cannot ever get the correct answer. So asking the RIGHT questions to yourself is the most important thing you can do for your own personal growth… We are born, and we will all die one day – this is certain. In the middle of our birth and death is this thing called Life. We don’t have a choice about the fact that we will die one day, but we do choose how we will live the days of our lives. So here’s an important question to ask yourself – What is life for?
What is my life about? What is the purpose of my journey here? It’s important to ask this question because the answer will decide what your experience of life becomes. Is life just for growing up, getting an education, meeting your partner, having children, creating a big successful career, company, or family, having experiences, friendships, relationships, and then one day leaving it all behind when you pass away? You may indeed do all of this along the way, but what is the big picture of life all about? This is an important and powerful question to ask.
I asked myself this question when I was just a teenager and then searched for the answer. I looked both within, into my heart, and searched externally by meeting and learning from enlightened teachers. Eventually, after a lot of search, practice, and experience, I found my answer. While each of us has different goals to fulfill and life to love, there is a common thread in our existence. We are all here, experiencing life, to bring out the best possible potential from within us and share it with others. We are all here to be the best we can be as individual human beings.
This is the answer to the big question that will clarify and set the path of your life – You are here to be the best you can be, in your relationships, in your work, in your friendships, in your efforts, and your life. To help you live your best life, let’s begin by understanding that there are essentially just three ways to live life. You can live your lowest life: regardless of circumstances, this is a life where you don’t follow your dreams; you keep chasing STUFF. You are the least important person in your life; everyone else is more important than you:
your partner, your kids, your work, and your in-laws – all of this is more important than being authentic to yourself. You can live a mediocre life. Regardless of circumstances, this is a life where sometimes you get your way, but it is only after others get theirs too. So there is always a compromise. And you’re supposed to feel satisfied with just what you’ve got, been given, or received in life. You look around and see that everyone else is doing the same thing – they are not living the lives they want to live. Instead, they are always compromising to keep moving ahead. Mr. Jones gets up, goes to work.
He comes home, spends time with the family, then goes to bed. The next day, he gets up and does the same thing all over again. This is the conditioned life, albeit stable, secure and comfortable. Living this life of no purpose every day is dangerous as it may bring you to a mindset that believes this is how life is supposed to be. Once this mindset has taken root, you are condemned to a lifetime of mediocrity and nonsignificance.
You can live your best life! This is a life where you know the reason you are alive. You have a clear sense of what you want to do with your life. You are living authentically, not to fulfill others’ expectations of you. You are full of purpose, passion, and a sense of completeness. You are engaged in work that you love.
You share life with someone you love. When you wake up, you know you’re living your highest potential. If you can find the courage inside you to decide to live your highest life, here are 5 tips to help you to do so. Living your best, highest, biggest, brightest life is easy when you follow the 5 tips. The first tip is the most difficult, but let us start here because if you can do this, all the others that follow are easy.
