Question: How does one determine their life purpose?

: For most people, the strongest indication is your passion. Your passion tells you who you are, your fundamental identity at your soul level. It is very sad that many are confused about passion and think of passion as something that is to be denied, when in fact, it’s showing you the path.


Many people also have the idea that soul purpose should occur a certain way, perhaps the way you’ve seen others who you identify as being on their soul path or having their soul purpose. You then compare yourself to those and think that yours should be similar, or else you don’t have a soul purpose. But soul purpose can take many, many forms. And it is not necessarily at all connected to what is considered valuable, or necessary, or successful in the conventional world.


Soul purpose is about your personal expression, which adds to the completeness of the whole. It is your contribution. By engaging your soul purpose, you also are engaging your soul path of growth. It will inevitably be very personal, unique, and individual for each person. It can also change during the course of your lifetime. You can fulfill a soul purpose and move on to another soul purpose.


It is your passion that will tell you more than anything what your soul purpose is. When you are truly doing your soul purpose, you are drawn to do that thing. You have energy for it; you want to do it; you do it even when you should be doing other things. Those are signs of soul purpose.


And engaging your soul purpose brings you joy. It lights up your being. You know you are doing your soul purpose when you feel so alive, so connected to God and all of God’s creation. Then you are doing your soul purpose.


Questioner: Thank you.


Mary Magdalene: You are welcome.
