Unlocking Purpose

Apr 21, 2023 | Daily Trek, Unlearn

Unlocking Purpose - Radical Trekking - Ayelet Baron

By unlocking purpose, we ignite the passion within ourselves. And channel our energy towards meaning, transcending limitations and embracing our true potential.

In today’s world, we’re constantly exposed to opinions from various sources—conventional media, social media, podcasts, experts, family and friends. But what if unlocking our true purpose hinges on becoming aware of what truly matters to us?

We’ve often built our lives around others’ beliefs and accepted things without questioning. But when we unlock our purpose, our minds open to new possibilities. Fear, however, can limit our potential, causing us to believe unrealistic stories and create self-fulfilling narratives. Our opportunity is to move beyond our comfort zones.

David Foster Wallace poignantly said, “Everything I’ve ever let go of has claw marks on it,” emphasizing the internal struggle many of us face when releasing attachments. Not everyone stays in our lives as relationships end and begin, mostly due to broken trust and miscommunication. This creates room for new experiences as we let go, unlearn and learn what is unhealthy and healthy for our wellbeing. Being able to establish healthy boundaries is a key element of unlocking our truth.

Life isn’t perfect—darkness exists and is often visible. Ignoring it only allows fear to grow and the darkness to spread. We can make choices that counteract darkness and fear, however.

Peace and harmony are essential for a balanced life. It’s important to recognize that taking action, embracing discomfort, and putting in the effort are more valuable than merely convincing or instructing others on how to be. Our intentions matter as we ground ourselves in reality.

Deborah Reber guides us that  “Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone anymore. It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.” Letting go is an act of embracing the reality that we can only truly influence and manage our own actions and reactions.

At the very heart of creation pulses a rhythm, a dance of flow and harmony, igniting the spirit and awakening our senses. Embracing the full spectrum of life—both the shadows and the light—we courageously face the mighty waves that surge towards us. As each new wave rolls in, we recognize that our power lies in how we adapt, how we respond, and how we ride the waves. There is no reason to fight.

Venturing into our own darkness, we dare to step beyond the familiar boundaries of comfort. We challenge the beliefs that hold us captive, preventing us from reaching greater heights of awareness.

Though the journey may be daunting, we remember that a life of ease and safety was never the promise. Instead, we choose curiosity and courage, forging a path illuminated by the vibrant, beating heart of creation itself.
