“You are here to enable the Divine Purpose of the Universe to Unfold. That is how important you are!” Eckart Tolle.
Eckart Tolle’s quote is one of my favorite. There is only one of you in all of time. You matter! When you can really take that in, absorb the truth of who you are, a Divine individualized expression of the Universe, God, Higher Intelligence (or who or what you wish to call it), your life will shift. You start to become more soul identified and less ego defined. Awakening to this realization, the awareness and connection to this truth, is essential on many levels. For one, it supports you in finding, cultivating and contributing your unique purpose to your life, community, humanity and the planet.
Your unique purpose is an inside job FIRST that follows with your outer expression. Whether it is manifested in your work, professional or personal passion, relationships or creative endeavors, you and only you can bring your unique talents, personality, gifts, ideas, ways of being and doing to the world that no one else can. This is not about being special, it is about each of us acknowledging our Divine birthright to exist and embrace our worth. Every one of us can choose to accept and allow our own magnificence and live authentically from our heart, mind and soul. In turn we are more able and available to give the same to others in spite of our differences. This conscious choice alone will help humanity shift, transform and evolve.
Edgewalkers understand the importance of discovering our unique purpose and exploring our calling, even though it may look different for each of us. Even if we are unclear, or are in the midst of a transition, we know that we can always choose to make a difference and connect with our purpose by focusing on the Edgewalker skills and qualities. Some of these include risk-taking, vision, passion, play, and connecting with what comes natural for us, what brings us joy. At times this path can feel scary and many individuals feel like they are walking the path alone, or are misunderstood. It takes courage and commitment to follow your calling and embrace your unique purpose. However it is a risk worth taking. When you are authentically aligned with your true self/Self you also attract those of like mind, soul, purpose and can support one another on the journey . You can recognize and celebrate one another’s magnificence.
My favorite quote from my childhood is from the poet E.E. Cummings: “To be no one but yourself, in a world which is doing its best day and night to make you like everyone else, means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting.” It is time to let go of the fight and allow the love. To stop searching and allow your purpose to come forth. By embracing your authenticity as well as the unique contribution of others, a safe space is created that allows your unique purpose to be revealed to you, like a beautiful diamond that has been buried. You are a facet on that diamond. Each one of us can be the one of a kind individual that we are meant to be. It is your time to shine brilliantly. The world needs you. YOU need YOU!
