  2. Growing Up
  3. Cleaning Up
  4. Showing Up

We are now entering the second path on The Hero’s Journey. On the path of Growing Up, we bring your awakening mind into your personal growth and development. Growth-and-development leads to more joy and happiness in life, as well as blossoming into who and what you’re meant to be in your lifetime.

On the Growing Up path, (1) you discover your Soul’s purpose so you can follow even higher bliss as your Authentic Self, (2) create a compelling future into higher stages of growth — all within the context of your awakening mind.  Today, we will discuss the first part of Growing Up: Discovering your Soul’s Purpose and living as Your Authentic Self.

Your Authentic Self

Throughout most of human history, the purpose of life has been survival. Even though this isn’t as fun as it could be, to a great extent survival is still the primary purpose of life. Survival takes many different forms, even in the modern world.  It’s not only about food, sex, and shelter. Survival is also about, for example, social standing and respect within a community, which often means better food, better sex, and better shelter, and, therefore, a better chance of survival.  From that survival perspective, it’s no surprise our bodies go into fight-or-flight mode when we feel humiliated, shamed, or disrespected.

To transcend our survival needs into a state of thriving (which includes survival) requires a bigger purpose.  To thrive in life requires your Soul, and your Soul’s purpose, to fuel your growth into the next stage of your development.  Your Soul’s purpose is no ordinary fuel. It is the rocket fuel that’s required to go beyond our survival needs.  We need rocket fuel because our Soul is competing against millions of years of survival programming that’s deeply anchored in our body and brain.

Following the bliss of your Soul’s Purpose will require you to trust the deeper awakening states you’ve experienced.  And trusting the awakened mind is a new way of being for humans. Therefore, our lower brain and mind will dig its heels in, most likely at the moment of your greatest breakthrough.

Consider the act of skydiving.  It takes an incredible amount of will, courage, and trust to jump out of an airplane. The hardest part is that last step.  But once you’re out the door and flying freely, feelings of bliss and excitement take over.  You realize that overcoming fear expands your mind and liberates even more fuel on your Journey. Your lower brain and mind will create obstacles while following the path to bliss. Expect obstacles and commit to facing your obstacles and overcoming them with the great help of your awakening mind.

Higher Perspective

Your Soul transcends your lifetime — this lifetime — on earth. Your Soul carries wisdom and virtue from previous lifetimes.  It knows where you’ve been, and it knows where you are heading. Your lower brain and mind are concerned with survival during your lifetime. Your Soul, however, has a higher perspective, an eternal perspective. 

Your Soul knows your authentic self.  When you embody your Soul’s Purpose, you embody your authentic self in this lifetime.  When you act on your Soul’s Purpose, you are following your bliss. 

Acting on your Soul’s Purpose brings incredible joy. We find the right people to gather around us, and we form the right relationships to join us on the journey.  We find ourselves in the right places at the right times.
