After spending a long weekend with my family, I hugged my Mum goodbye and for the first time in my entire life, she cried in my arms (you know the sobbing that makes your whole body shake kind of cry).
Wrapping my arms tighter around her small frame I asked “What is hurting in your heart?”
She replies, “I don’t know how much time I have left here. And if I’ll get to see everyone again.”
Death is confronting.
There was a period of time where death seemed to be creeping into our home more and more. My father had been sick on and off for years with major illnesses, surgeries, he and our family had faced death or the fear of death many times.
My parents, each visit or phone call would want to talk about their death with my sister, brother and me.
They’re prepared, a funeral prayer book is written, hymns are decided, a financial plan arranged, the works.
Now, it’s my mum’s turn to feel her mortality like something is creeping over her as she lives, slowly ready to take her at any moment.
Death is confronting as it makes you face your life.
While flying home (and in between Bonnie crawling all over me between seats to get the best view) I reflected on my future when I am in my 80’s and what I would love my life to be, what would I love to have created and what mark do I want to leave on the world (I know for sure it isn’t ticking off every Netflix series).
My Mum has been my greatest teacher and has taught me to not only walk a spiritual path but be prepared to dedicate your life to a cause and a mission that is serving humanity.
Everyone has a mission, a purpose on earth. Some people take 50 years to awaken to it, others know it as a child. It doesn’t matter when you find and follow it, it matters to keep following your inner knowing for that divine calling as it has more wisdom than you can intellectualise.
It isn’t about comparing yourself to others (that’ll shut it down quickly).
It isn’t about following someone else’s calling (that’s Killing Me Softly)
It isn’t about thinking with your head about your mission is (off with their heads – Thanks Queen of Hearts).
Let me bring it home with a little wisdom from Abraham Lincoln I shared a few weeks ago and it is perfect here again, “I’m not bound to win, I’m bound to be true. I’m not bound to succeed, I’m bound to live up to the light within me.”
And you are.
You have a light to shine on the world.
No. Let me re-say that you have a unique light to shine on the world, that only you can do.
In the Maximum Growth Business Membership, we have finished a block of classes on unpacking and revealing a Philosophia for life.
This process has been so deeply moving that each session (and for those that watched the recordings) had rolling goosebumps and tears, and saw their vision for their life right in front of them.
Their certainty in their own path, their own purpose, their meaningful mission grew. A spark ignited for some, for others it burned brighter.
And all from 5 hours of retrospection, introspection, prospection (that’s looking forward in time).
Everyone has a unique mission to share with the world (or a group of people in a little corner of the internet).
Only you can know it (I have some quality questions to ask to reveal it).
What’s five hours of time to dedicate to awaken something powerful within yourself that creates your life to be more meaningful?
