Survival demands few things – food, water, air and procreation. A human life needs much more. We were created with a pesky need for purpose. It’s not the things we own or the jobs we do that define our purpose. It lies in honouring the genuine substance of who we are.
Once basic needs are satisfied, I find myself in that search for purpose. I’ve stumbled upon my true wants and needs the same way we all do; exploring options, expressing ourselves and messing all kinds of things up along the way. It takes courage to be free. It takes the willingness to completely let go of who we think we should be, to be who we really are.
