What is it that makes a perfect moment in our lives? A moment where the clock seems to stop. A perfect pause happens and we revel in it. I believe it is when we are in fact in perfect alignment with our life purpose.
Each of us has purpose. To me it is not a purpose full life, it is about a purpose lead life. To live with purpose is to be consciously aware of what I am doing, where it will lead me and what my desired outcome is to be. I want to show the way by my own actions. I want to lead myself as I am able, follow when I need guidance and be lead when I am unsure.
The purpose changes as often as do the circumstances of my own life. I do not seek the perfect purpose. I seek to be on purpose. But what really is purpose? Are you ready for it. I think you may be surprised. According to the Princeton University dictionary it is: an anticipated outcome that is intended or that guides your planned action. I love it. We anticipate what we intend. Then we are on purpose!
I really enjoy this exploration of my spiritual self because occasionally (like today) I have an “aha moment” wherein everything in the universe appears to be aligned. And it is aligned because the universe, although it does not revolve around me, is observed by me at its centre. Each of us is the centre of our own perspective.
Now back to our purpose…smile. What we anticipate and what we intend. Those are powerful words indeed. I anticipate through using my imagination. I foresee an outcome without expecting it. It is the difference between expectation and expecting. Close in spelling but far in meaning. I am excited when I anticipate. I am nervous when I expect. Anticipation allows room for improvement. Expectation provides for failure to be met.
My intention comes from my conscious choice. I set my intention. It is my intention to be a good husband. I think about it. I put effort into it. I own my role as a husband. It was a sacred gift given to me and I and accept and celebrate it. I first observe and then change my behaviour whenever I believe it does not meet my intention of being a good husband. It requires effort but the outcome is reward. I am appreciated by my husband for it and he tells me so.
So today I say thank for this perfect moment in time. I sit at my computer typing. I am both listening to and singing with Barry Manilow as I wait for friends to arrive for tea and television. It is now a perfect moment in time and I am so glad to have been able to share it with you. I hope you enjoy several perfect moments in time in the very near future.
