The 5 Reasons I get Happier as I get Older…

I really enjoyed reading this post. Introspection and self awareness combined with a sense of connection to the beings and the world around us are definitely a recipe for feeling energized and having a meaningful life. In our society (especially in the USA), we focus so much on externals and on social and financial success, we tend to collectively forget that each of us does have a purpose and that the time we have here allows us to get to know our self and one another.

    • Hi Mukul. Thanks for the comment! I reblogged James Radcliffe’s post because I really like the way he combines self-discipline with a sense of purpose focused around service to others. Each of us has special gifts and talents and also challenges we face in life. Introspection helps us to unfold and discover at least part of the complexity of our hearts and minds, and it takes some dedication and clarity to see that the values our cultures promote are not necessarily aligned with our personal purpose here in the world. With courage and focus, we can each make a difference by doing the work we were meant to do. I think it’s important to learn to love and be patient with our self, because sometimes it takes time and a variety of experiences for our purpose to mature and unfold. The world is a complex and wonderful school for the soul. Rebekah 🙂
