You are here "To Be", not "to DO"

by Laura Bonilla
Spiritual Coaching and Hypnotherapy 

It is so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life, caught up in trying to accomplish things. Most define success based on money or status achieved. But, are we here to do? to create? Not at all. The purpose of life, as Spiritual beings, is to express who we are. We did not come to this planet to create things, we came to this planet to express our nature. We came here to express love, compassion, peace, joy. These are the qualities of our divine nature. This is the true purpose of life. Expressing who you are gives you happiness because it connects you to your nature. Creating or doing things may give you pleasure, but it is not happiness. It is pleasure and it is temporary. So, no matter what you create or do, you will always want to create or do more. You are not never satisfied, because there is something inside of you, your Soul who came to “BE”, not to “DO”. 

So, to find happiness in life we must shift our focus. Shift your concept of success and based it on how much you express your divine nature. In other words, shift your concept of success away from achieving, creating, doing, and into being more loving, more caring, understanding. Life becomes so much easier because expressing who you are is much easier than creating or doing things. 

Expressing Love, Joy, Peace takes only your choice. It does not matter how much you have, where you live, and whether you have a job or not. It does not even required health. You are Love. You are Joy. You are Peace. Choose to express them and find instant satisfaction, instant happiness. 

At the end of life we review our lives based on how loving we were, how caring, how joyful we were. We do not review our lives based on how many buildings we got or how much money we acquired, and much less on what type of jobs we held. 

Stop worrying about doing too much, stop worrying about creating. Simply start living life joyfully, lovingly, peaceful. That is heaven on Earth! It is your choice. Choose true happiness!
