Living On Purpose
I have been listening to a lot of Dr. Wayne Dyer (Author of ‘Change your thoughts, change your life’) lectures lately and in one of them he said something that really stood out to me “don’t die with your music still in you.”   A friend of mine also mentioned to me that hearing this had pushed a button inside her and made her think more about what she was doing or not doing with her life.  So today’s inspiration is all about living on purpose.
Are you living on purpose?  It is quite a big question really and in contemplating it myself, I would say that I have improved but I still waste a huge amount of my time living completely off purpose.  And by this I do not even mean what are you doing with your life that is purposeful but are you being purposeful in your life.  There is such a difference between doing and being.  You can be on purpose in any area of your life no matter what you are doing.  Everything starts with what you are being and then the doing will follow later.
So in reflecting on the statement – “don’t die with your music still in you” I feel it means to really allow your true self to come out and be visible in the world, and to live with inspiration, passion and purpose.  Many of us know on some level what we are meant to be doing or want to be doing but we are too afraid to do it or we feel restricted by finances, family, friends, image, environment and all the usual things.  You can still live your music no matter what you are doing by allowing yourself to be who you really are.
When you allow your music to come out and be heard you will begin to live with purpose.  If you are being on purpose you make conscious choices about the person you are choosing to be, where you are choosing to go, whom you choose to associate with and what you choose to do with your time.  Basically you are making choices that have meaning to you rather than just existing in life.  It is so easy to get caught up in the day to day illusions and let our music fade into the background. 
Your music deserves to be heard.  Listen to it, listen to your own inner guidance and your soul’s calling and live with a sense of purpose everyday in everyway. 
Have a lovely weekend and remember you are a spark of the Divine - so let your light shine.
Love and blessings
