Hey fellow “ordinary guru” seekers. Shaun is looking for guidance. What might you add to what I have shared with him (see below)
I don’t know what to do with my life. Everyone has answers for me, but I feel confused. I’m twenty. And right now I’m in college, but it feels like an excuse for avoiding life. Does that make sense to you?
Thank you, Shaun
That is one powerful inquiry you’re into. To find answers about what you are here to do with your life, well now! That inquiry, if it’s to be an earnest one, requires that you look at the “real you” vs the ‘invented self.” The “invented self” is the “you” that you put together during childhood rearing so you could please others.
The “invented self” will never truly please you. That is what you are right now sensing. The “invented self” will please those who tell you what your life should be about. But, that’s not going to satisfy your heart, since your heart belongs to the “real you.”
Begin by looking into yourself, and sincerely asking, “What would I (my real self) love to do with my life that would truly please me, and at the same time be of service to the community?” If you ask that question, with an intention of getting the answer, you will begin to remember those deep yearnings that you’ve buried deep in your heart.
This is a great beginning for you Shaun. All of your worries about your future spring from false ideas you hold of yourself. Let those false ideas go, and your life will begin to flow nicely just where you want it to go.
Blessings to you Shaun, Rob
What does this advice have to do with the rest of you? Nothing! Hmmm, you might want to look again. It never hurts to look. I am always looking when it comes to me.
Blessings & love to all of you, Rob
