Digging the Depths

It is in digging that gems are found. Same thing for us. We can’t expect to find the gems of our lives lying around waiting for us.

We must dig and explore for more, all the days of our lives. And that… that is where we find the joy.

Consider the face of a child in the delight of discovery. That is what life is moved to do… to discover.

Your Purpose

The specifics of your purpose will be unique to you and your particular expression of that in the world. Psychologist, Abraham Maslow’s original six human needs pyramid has been summarized into the following six aspects.1)https://www.pursuit-of-happiness.org/history-of-happiness/abraham-maslow/

We’ve added a seventh aspect to this list from our perspective.

6 Basic Human Needs List

  1. Safety – the need to be safe, certain and secure
  2. Variety – the need for change, adventure and excitement
  3. Significance – to matter; to be valid, important, useful
  4. Love – to love and be loved; to connect with others and ourselves
  5. Growth – to learn and grow, change and develop into greater potential
  6. Contribution– to help, give, and serve… to make a difference
    ~Adapted from psychologist, Abraham Maslow’s original six human needs

And we’ve added one more essential human need:

      7. Spirituality – a connection to a divine creative intelligence… a magical, mystical, celestial wholeness, an other worldliness with the promise of a pure and purposeful realm of good.

So once all your basic needs are met, the expressive nuances your life takes is unique to you. Fulfillment of basic human needs leads to a stability from which to create more in your life.

Life is a journey of discovery, and it is in asking deep questions that we discover deeper answers; answers that may have lain dormant forever, but for the inquiry that opened access to depths un-mined. #lifegoals #Dreams #Motivation #BucketLists #Ideas #Quotes #Money #IWant #Happy #ThingsToDo #Inspiration #Thoughts #Travel #Adventure #Fun #Friends #Awesome #People #Families #Heavens #RoadTrips #Wanderlust #Mottos #icreatedaily

So What is the Point of Life?

To start, we are to:

  1. Strive for and stabilize your basic human needs
  2. Love, grow and contribute

The toddler must walk before he can run. So too must we establish that we can “walk” in the world of adults by stabilizing our life circumstances. Until then, that is our primary purpose for that time of life.

To walk is to take a step from a stable position and enter a state of imbalance as we balance on one foot on the way to the next step. So too our growth in life.

Once you’re in a steady rhythm of taking care of the basics of life, namely, a sense of security (safety) in the world, you’re then free to embark on adventures (variety). Adventures is the next step that will lead to discoveries that lead to discoveries and doing work that matters to you (significance).

Adventures lead to discoveries that lead to doing work that matters to you.

“I had this misconception that you will work when you’re inspired. And now I know that that’s really far from the truth. You just work. You put the work in, and then inspiration comes.”
~Jessica Singerman, professional artist

The Desire for Connection

The natural growth from there is to seek to connect more with others (love), to develop yourself and your talents (grow) and to help inspire and aid others (contribution). Lastly… we seek transcendence and mergence with something higher… something greater that helps it all make sense, (spirituality).

“The desire for connection permeates every atom of existence.”
~LeAura Alderson, Cofounder-iCreateDaily.com

How Many People…?

Think about it. How many people do you personally know who have these first six human needs down pat? Chances are, not so many. These basic human needs then, are the first point of life, and these don’t always come sequentially.

You could, for instance, be a carefree (or careless) single guy or gal, who unexpectedly becomes a parent. Now there is the pressure to become responsible and stable and to love another like no other. In this case, you could say that love came first.  The love for the child motivated the parent to get the rest of it together.

“Love is the purpose of creation.
In creating, love becomes a verb.
Love is revealed through action.
Love is the purpose of our universe.
To create is to align.”

The Point of Life is Love

Ultimately, the highest human achievements have come from—and because of—love.

The love of parent for child, of server and served, of spouse to spouse, and the passion for art and craft as well as the love of creating. Life is about becoming more through the expression of love and the steady cultivation of growth and contribution.

These three: love, growth and contribution, serve to instill a sense of spirituality… a sense of the sacredness of life.

If you feel far from that, the one thing that helps turn it around faster than anything else is gratitude.

“The point of life is to expand love through conscious creation. To create is to love, and to love is to birth beauty into being.”

A Daily Prompt for Growing in Love, Positivity and Adventure…?

Each Day a New Beginning*

What if I begin each morning with a sense of adventure?
For after all, today has never been before.

I shall greet this morning brightly and bravely.

“Good Morning, You magnificent Day!
What wonders shall we discover today?”

LeAura Alderson, iCreateDaily.com

*The title of this prompt was inspired by a favorite Rumi poem.

The Point of Your Life

Okay… but how does that connect specifically with you and what you’re here to do? The bottom line point of each life on planet earth is to shine more brightly… to expand consciousness by pursuing the boundaries of yourself. Your mission is to grow and become more.

How to increase the light and love in your life? Move toward that which inspires you and away from that which does not.

Don’t worry about being behind or disconnected or lacking. Focus on the gains, not the gaps, and head in the direction of that which warms your heart and stokes your sense of self.

“When our actions align with our aspirations, happiness follows.”
~LeAura Alderson, Cofounder-iCreateDaily.com

How to be Happier?

Ask: does this choice… this that I’m thinking, doing, or planning, enhance or detract from greater love, awareness and inspiration? Do more of what enhances and less of what does not.

We become more confident, bold and energized, the more we are being who we think we should be, and doing what we feel in our hearts that we should be doing.

Pursue inspiration, then do something with that flame.

Now… please take 8 minutes for awe and encouragement from this amazing compilation of wisdom by another creator. We’ve never really been Jim Carrey fans, personally… i.e., his movies aren’t on our top 100 list, but this… THIS is powerful and important and a message to tune into over and again.

“Ultimately, we are not the avatars that we create…
We are the light that shines through.”
Jim Carrey, Actor, comedian, screenwriter,
musician, producer, painter, cartoonist

“How will you serve the world? What do they need that your talent can provide? That’s all you have to figure out.”
~Jim Carrey, Actor, comedian, screenwriter, musician, producer, painter, cartoonist

And… until then, folks… if  you’re not sure of the answer to that quote by Jim Carrey, then keep heading in the direction that inspires you most. There you will find clues, connection and purpose.
