Lady J-san is ready master...

They say that when the student is ready, she (or he) searches out the teacher. With that said, while reading the guy online form my previous post, I followed a link on his page. It was about "The Life Purpose Lie." How interesting. So I read it. And I liked it. To sum it up, this guy says to reverse the process. Instead of finding your life purpose and then doing what you were meant to do, one should do what you are inspired to do and find your purpose along the way. If you ever find it, he says. I like this POV. Especially, the whole "evolving" way he puts our way through life. We evolve and so our purpose does too. Maybe purpose is just living our best. This whole idea ties into many of the ideas I have run across: The Why Cafe, Conversations With God Book 3, and even flowdreaming and Louise Hay.

So what have I learned form these two articles? A lot. But what, exactly, you wonder. Well, not to stress over purpose. My purpose is to live. I want to live my best and so I am searching for ways to learn myself. What better way to live than to know myself and what I want out of life? What's important to me? What do I want to achieve? Who do I want to impact? What do I want to teach my children? How do I want to be remembered? How to type without making so many typos? Can you answer these questions? Try.

  1. Very deep questions that require a lot of quiet time to ponder - not something readily available to a working mom...
    but I do see how and why it is necessary to ponder them.
    You certainly have had an impact on me, btw.
    I think the questions "what I want to teach my children" and "how I want to be remembered" go hand in hand - soooo many people today don't grasp just how huge a responsibility it is to be raising a child. Mind you, I can't answer these questions at the moment, because I haven't had enough quiet meditation time to form an intelligent response. But they are important questions! (Like you aren't already saying that...)
    I do have an answer to your final question: to stop the typos, simply look at your keyboard as you type. It works for me, when I am distracted, anyway. I mean, the visual really does help, you know.
    And hey, while you are looking at your keyboard and typing, could you edit the title of this post to read "J-san"? Because that would be the correct spelling. No offense or anything. Poison Ivy can be a bitch sometimes, I know. I still love you!
