The Hidden Purpose of Our Lives

Purim is almost here. (For those of my readers who aren’t Jewish, you can read the story of Purim here.) This holiday always makes me wonder why I find myself in an given place at any given moment.

If Queen Esther found herself in that castle at just the right time to save the Jews, could it be that I am here in this particular place at this particular moment to do something spectacular as well? Or will I discover one day that God has led me through a sequence of events so I arrive at a specific place at a specific time so I can do something unique and special, such as fulfill my life’s purpose or create positive change in the world or in other people’s lives?

And what happens if I deviate from the course? What if I miss the signals and end up somewhere else?

The story of Purim is all about synchronicity and God’s hand working in people’s lives. Thus, it gives me hope and renews my faith that synchronicity can occur in my own and that I, too, will find God’s hand leading me to the right place at the right time.

However, we have to allow ourselves to see the signs, feel the signals, sense what direction to take so that we can arrive in the intended place. Many of us ignore these signs or simply don’t see, hear, smell, taste, or feel them. We don’t use our five–or six–senses to help us get directions from God or from our souls (or Higher Selves).

Someone recently told me that I would get messages constantly if I only meditated every day. She said I didn’t even need to do this for long periods of time…just for 10 or 15 minutes each morning. Doing so would inform my whole day.

Anyone can do that–even me. The practice of meditating even for short periods opens up the senses and allows us to use them like a compass–like a spiritual GPS system. We can tap into our intuition. We can hear the Still Small Voice.

This week, try meditating every morning for a little while for the express purpose of getting messages about where you are supposed to be and what you are supposed to be doing. Allow your senses to guide you.Stop. Look. Listen. Feel. Maybe, like Esther, you’ll find yourself in the right place at the right time.

Like Esther, also be prepared to act courageously–to have a bit of chutzpah. Don’t let the moment pass you by.
