I had the amazing opportunity to gather with 400 of the most incredible visionaries from around the world for four days last week. To say it was the most life changing experience of my life would be a huge understatement. The lessons I learned were transformational and I came away feeling truly blessed. There was a calling that could not be ignored…a wake-up call…a call to action to live my life with more purpose and meaning although that is what I thought I was living.
Hillel the Elder, Jewish rabbi of Babylonian origin, living at Jerusalem in the time of King Herodis, is the author of the saying “If I am not for myself, who is for me? And when I am for myself, what am ‘I’? And if not now, then when?”. The inner inquiry is profound as a general question for all of to ponder. What is the purpose of life? Who will be called to live that life with meaning? When will a life of purpose and meaning be lived?
The question “If not you, who?…if not now, when?” rang loud and clear as I connected and went deeper at this gathering. It became not only clear what my purpose was but also what was I waiting for. There was an urgency never there before that grabbed me thrusting me into action. I committed to more integrity in my life and saying no more to any beliefs or obstacles that get in the way of living and speaking my truth. It felt exhilarating to say the least as I began a more definitive and meaningful journey.
Many of my clients recovering from their experience with divorce are confronted with questions of what’s next in their life and how to live with more purpose and meaning. It’s a scary yet freeing place to be. Although these questions may have never been asked before, being able to start fresh with a clean slate can be quite exciting. The path from divorce need not be painful or be insufferable. There are options and solutions that will help heal the pain and be the guidance to transforming your life to one of purpose and meaning. What I know for sure is you are a magnificent being perfect, whole and complete with all the answers you need. All it takes is that first step and someone to walk right alongside you.
If not You, Who?…If not Now, When? !n-joy my friends! Namaste
