Creating a New Life

1. Where do I start to create a new life?

There is only one place to start, and this is by taking time out of your busy day, and truly looking into your heart, because this is where all of your answers can be found.

Ask yourself what truly matters to you, and what your natural talents, strengths and abilities are. There is no reason to become an accountant when you are not naturally in love with the process of mathematics and accounting. Likewise, if you are passionate about a certain area, and have a natural ability in this area, this can be a good indication as to a part of your life purpose.

Many people have multi-faceted lives, such as being an author, public speaker, spiritual teacher, and publisher. Some people can love to bring others together for a common purpose and have great organizational skills, while they are naturally gifted with music. Such people can do both – create a team of people that can bring great benefit to others, and record wonderful music for others to enjoy.


There is no right or wrong with respect to your life purpose. There is no direction you “must” go in, unless you are absolutely passionate about it in your heart. This will bring you, and others, the most joy as a result of the new direction you move in.


2. How do I know which direction to go in?

Ask yourself if you had twelve million dollars in the bank, and you already owned every thing you have ever wanted to own, if you would do what you are about to do for FREE because you would love it that much. This is the greatest indication that you are moving in the direction of what you came into this life for, and moving with the current of your natural talents and abilities.


3. Why does it take so long and how do I know when it is meant to be what I am here to do?

Any worthwhile process takes time so that you can learn and grow during the process, while you share your gifts with others as you go along. That is why it is called a “life purpose” and not a “week purpose.”

You will know when you are doing what you came into this life to do when it is not about a “goal” anymore, but rather the love of the daily, moment-by-moment process of it all. You will not be worried about the future because you will be passionately absorbed in your daily joy (work) of it all.

Can you imagine saying: Thank God It’s Monday! as opposed to “Thank God it’s Friday.”? THAT is when you know you are in love with what you are doing with your life, and you would be EXCITED to even spend a Sunday (as I am right now) creating what you love, from your heart, for the sheer joy of how your creation can make a genuine difference in this world, stemming from your heart, and how it can benefit others, rather than look for a “payback” as a result of what you are doing.
